Here's my build thread

When searching for my latest motorcycle, the one that I had almost decided on was the Vegas 8-ball. Until I stumbled across the Gunner, that is. On June 20th, the dealer allowed me to go out on a test ride on the Gunner and the tech that accompanied me was riding the Vegas. I rode the Gunner to the turnaround point and then the Vegas on the way back. My mind was made up, I had to have the Gunner.


[insert picture]


Later that day, once I had this beast in my garage, I began to ponder the potential changes that I’d like to make. So, immediately, I began scouring the “interwebz” to see what’s available. Shortly, thereafter, parts ordered and shipping confirmations received. Here is where I decided to start:


The first thing that I had to do was clean the bike up, cosmetically. The turn signals didn’t belong. They appeared that they should’ve been installed on a 2002 Susuki GSX-R, when it was new on the show room floor. I decided on this little baby from victoryonly.com.


[insert picture]


I also wanted to do something with the license plate bracket to clean up the rear end. I chose to go with this little guy from WitchDoctors.


[insert picture]


I was contemplating putting on the bullet style headlight from the Vegas, but I also wanted to convert to an HID. Do I wait for the new headlight, then convert? Nah, screw it. I’ll throw it in now. Should I go with the guy from VictoryHID.com or source my own? Victory’s HID kit was out of the question since its $400. Ultimately, I sourced my own from Amazon, and got a two-for-once deal, compared to VictoryHID’s price. It took some modifications, and custom wiring but I made it work.


[insert picture]


I decided on Hacker SOBs for my exhaust. Which means that I should probably get an intake and fuel controller right? So, I ordered up some Lloydz Torque Tubes w/ IAV and a Cobra Fi2000 PowrPro Tuner.


[insert pictures]


The next modification that I should be doing, is the installation of my Hacker SOBs and then the apes from the High Ball or something similar. Following that, I’ll probably extend the pegs forward about 4 inches to make my ride a little more comfortable. Then, maybe some saddle bags.





Itemized list:


Rear fender lip signal $ 260


License plate bracket $ 103


HID kit $ 93


Lloydz Torque Tubes $ 651


Cobra Fi2000 $ 448


Hacker SOBs $ 746


Front turn signals and mounts $ 96


Wiring, connectors, heat shrink and other materials $ not specified.


Labor costs $ an aching back, busted knuckles, hurt feelings, drunk, tired, a whole lot of cussing.


Costs that I’m claiming so far, $2397 and counting. As of July 29th, 2015.







Here's my photo gallery. I seem to be limited to a max of 10 photos on here.
