Sorry I can't get the images to work properly, I've been getting her all together since buying her earlier in the year.
Not 100% sure on the headlight fairing, what you think?

I have some fzr usd forks to fit over the winter, done the clutch spring conversion and heavy duty plates, 54mm exhaust baffle mod, stainless collector, service, led rear light, rentals, new bt023's, two new stantions, 5 deg advancer, airbox mod, swing arm bearings, carb clean, few stickers.

Really coming together now.

That's a lovely looking XJR and a credit to your hard work. Personally, I like that fairing.

Why buy stanchions if you're fitting USDs this winter?

To show photos direct, there are usually a number of options provided with each photo in your picture app, select the img option, this should work. If you use the full editor option on here and then preview you should see if it's worked or not. May involve a bit of trial and error, there is also the img button in the full editor which gives 2 pairs of brackets and you then post the link between the bracket pairs. [img]xxxxxxxx[/img]

Nice bike, way cleaner than my black 1200, think I might have to spend some time in the garage over the coming months tidying it up, and putting on the bits I've accumulated.

Thanks for all the kind comments people!-)

One stantion was chipped and constantly wrecking fork seals so for the mot it needed one, the company who done the mot ordered one and it was a slightly different length, the company who they ordered off sent a second matching stantion as a sorry for the mistake so I got 2 for the price of one. At least I know if I don't like the feel of the usd forks I have an immaculate set of normal forks to put back on.

They don't measure up to my usd forks much differently but she seems much more eager to turn. Maybe they sent 1300 stantions? Are they a little shorter?

It's off of eBay, not had a chance to test it but it looks like it will make motorway cruising alot more comfortable.
Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.c ... 1997518223
