Nice looking bike Tim. And best thing, no one else has one like it (especially in WA!)
Actually, I have to fly over there in a few weeks. The base has an exercise on. I'm looking forward to it.
Best wishes mate.

Ztechnik CF handle bar trim:


Ztechnik CF tank cap trims:


Ztechnik CF instrument panel trim:


Ilmberger CF centre tank panel:


Ilmberger CF battery panel:


Ilmberger CF rear fender:


Ilmberger CF front fairing panel:


MRA double bubble racing screen:


Clear front indicator lights:


Clear rear indicator lights:


Clear LED rear stop light:


Phillips super white light bulbs:


Evoluzione billet performance air filters:


Evoluzione billet clutch slave cylinder kit:


Evoluzione billet adjustable torque arm:


Vario adjustable levers:


Heli-bar handle bar risers:


Akrapovic CF hexagonal complete exhaust racing system:


RG-Racing fork protector:


RG-Racing shaft protector:



The result is in the next post...

Tim

The transformation of Kassey (K1200S) - the result

Plus custom decals and paint work. This is a light silver which has a pearlescent effect. Depending on the lighting condition and the angle, you could either see light silver, off-whitish, or gold glint. It has to be seen in real to appreciate. The belly panels have been repainted in black metallic. The result is my personal interpretation of the K1200S:







Note the Evoluzione billet clutch slave cylinder:

Thumbs up

After owning HDs for over 20 years, I always thought the BM would save money re the customization bug. You proved me wrong there!
That is a beautiful looking bike. I still think Jerry's 'Excalibur' is the prettiest I've seen, followed closely by your bike. We need a modified K1200S page to host shots and ideas
If I wasn't rebuilding both my Indians, I'd spend some money on repainting my 06 GT. I have an urge to paint it a darker colour, as the Blue is about as uninspiring as it gets!

Ride safe mate.

Looks great! I really like that exhaust.

Ditto on the intent to save money on modifications... Doh! After seeing the Remus on another GT this weekend and seeing these shots I've got the new exhaust itch. Looking for a good hugger option too, as having ridden in the rain Saurday morning left my backside all dirty :o

IMHO, Akrapovic sounds awesome without being too offensive. I used to miss the throaty V-twin sound of my previous Ducati, but now that I have the Akrapovic (complete system racing line) on my fours and hear the throaty rumble sound, there is no going back smile. Without the noise silencer insert, it adds 9.3 rwhp at the top end and is rated at 99dB - which is loud but not annoying, unlike some other brands especially the straight through pipes fitted on many Harley's. The stock K1200S pipe has printings that say it is certified for 80dB.

And a damn fine interpretation too - love the contrasting detail. With a touch of gold through the silver and just enough CF for contrast your bike would be a seriously flashy piece of art in the sunlight. Mighty fine!!
