My Streetfighter (I think like phase 4 now...)

Hey guys I'm the one that also has built the red as well as grey versys streetfighter. Every now and then I decide to change up the look of my bike (think I'm on phase 4 now..) so this is how she sits now. Some mods include:

-Powdercoated frame, wheels, swingarm, footrests, and headlight housing

-Heidenau K73 tires

-Rizoma handlebar risers

-Rizoma handlebars

-LSL headlight brackets

-Universal 7" headlight

-Modded Jardine GP exhaust

-Header wrap

-Shaved passenger seat

-Copper paint color scheme

And some more things I'm probably forgetting. Some things I still have on the way include SW-Motech engine guard, bar end mirrors, motogadet gauge, kawasaki decals, and chain guard. Also wanna give a shout out to Norrick whose bike I read up on before attempting some of this. If you read this Norrick you need to give an update/new pics of your bike if you still got it. I really dig your bike.

I like functional motorcycles. This appeals to me. Nothin' on my bikes that doesn't serve a purpose.

NICE work for sure Did you remove or shave off all the uneeded bracketry? That wouldn't work here in AK You must be in Cali or one of those other continually moderate states........

Alabama. Doesnt get much more moderate temp wise. If I lived in Alaska I'd definitely need a mean dirt/mud/snow fighting machine like yours. Everyone adjusts to their climate. I've seen a bunch of the mods youve done and double thumbs up man. And to answer your question- yes. I shaved off all un-needed bracketry. A lot of it.

Yup, build the bike YOU want and need for your specific terrain. Vey clean and minimalist for sure. I believe that's what makes the VERSYS so versatile. It can be an Alaskan dual sport or a nekid Alabama streetfighter
And do BOTH very well.

Looks good. I think it would look real sweet with a smaller tank. But I like the look!

That is where I am going to argue with you.
I don't think the Versys does anything VERY well.
It does most things decently.


But OP.
I love it! From a fellow fighter builder, top notch work!

A very nice build indeed. More detail photos would be good, hint, I'm interested in the front frame in the radiator area.

Even more reason to buy a Versys. When you get board with the bike's original goods looks, it's an easy and effective transformer.
