I got some goodies in the mail yesterday so I started to work on them. I got some dust covers for the front forks. They are for a triumph vtx1800. These have the same specs that I measured on my bike so I figured I'd give them a shot. They are 39.99 on eBay compared to the $100+ k-speed ones. I think they fit well. My wife has a decal cutting machine so I had her cut out a couple for the area in the triple tree where the blinkers were mounted. I also took off the headlight bezel and painted it. Lastly I tried it instal some bar end mirrors but got hung up and couldn't figure out how to get the stock end out, so those will be put off for another day.

$100 from K-speed, are you sure?

FYI you can get rebel specific fork guards from steady garage for 29.99, I am likely going to buy and assemble those over the weekend after seeing yours done.

straight pipes, huh?

Lyoko- I plan to drill mine out this weekend.
Rebelrider- yes it is plastidiped.
Ryan- I did not see those. Yes I took off the muffler. Sound much better without it, until I get a pipe welded on.

I agree it sounds much better! a little loud being straight piped, I would suggest a cheapy slip on under 40 bucks. Then just buy a 1 7/8" exhaust clamp from Napa so your pipe isnt perminant when you try and sell the bike. It will stay on there is if it was welded.

Hey, your bike looks awesome!

I have a question, i hope u get what i mean because my vocabulary isnt that big.

Is it hard to get the black "rims" onto the "fork"? Because i got mine a week ago and im not sure how to install them!

Thanks in advance!
