Time to MOD the X !

Well, the X arrived in my garage around 6pm est. First thing I did was put the new battery in and start it up. Bike was cold, hasn't run in a few. So choke out and started right up. while warming up, I noticed a drip. Antifreeze dipping from lower hose. Tightened up, and all was fine. Once warm, took it around the neighborhood. FUCK, the open headers is loud. and got a sputter every so often. But that could also be cause it was about 38* out, and the bike wasn't regularly ridden lately. Gotta tune it up and change all the fluids.

Here it is in the garage before I touched anything.


Here is the X and the C2


and a front profile


I already swapped out the levers. Stock X levers on the C2, and the flame levers now on the X. Removed the Chin Scoop off the C2, and made sure it will fit on the X. Frame is the same dimensions in the front, so it will work.
I'm missing the left mirror on the X, so I am just gonna buy a new set, like the one's I have on the C2. They are cheap enough on egay.

I may also swap handlebars. I love my 1 1/2" T-Bars and want them on the X. Just gotta make sure the X bars look ok on the C2. And I also have a brand new set of front turns, just like I have on the C2, for the X. But they may wait until I get the rake kit.

I will update as I do more

Congrats! It's probably going to feel like a long winter, you're going to be itching to ride it. Can't wait to see how it will look after the winter mode.

I was thinking the same thing TI, attributed it to the bars. Neal, I have a set of mirrors like you have on the 750. Let me see if I can find them and check them out and you can have them for shipping.

That is some bad ass looking bags. If I had an R, I would be all over them to make a bagger.

that fender he is making might fit on a "C", or it seems like he would make one to fit a "C" on request ...

just a thought :)
