    Default Vstar 1100 project

    new member here, i've been sliding around the how to's and forums for awhile now. This is my first time taking on a project like this so dont beat me up too bad.

    started with a 2003 Vstar 1100 iwith 8,000 miles that i picked up for $1500.

    then it came to the exhaust...i search for awhile but didnt see anything that really jumped out at me so i decided to make my own. i used the Biltwell DIY kit with the 1.75 prebends.

    then it was time to start building mounts for the gas tank. In order to do that i had to first tuck the wiring harness. i had to chop it then tuck it all where i wanted it and reconnect it. This part really had me nervous, i hate electrical anything.

    now that i finished the wiring and gas tank mounts i decided i wasnt happy with the exhaust. it was WAY too close to my leg. so it was scrapped and i started again, this is what i came up with. i also added a sissy bar.

    finally sprayed the tank and fender last night. all rattle can job using duplicolor dark silver metalic on the tank and black metalic on the fender. I then cleared both using Spraymax 2k clear to protect against any fuel spills. i also painted the engine covers matte black.

    it actually responded pretty quick and there was no chance of sucking the fluid into the engine. I have since hooked up my buddies manometer, it was almost spot on.
