So this is the bike I started off with, it was a good price and the motor was OK. (green X18)
I used an X7 tail from my old bike, and custom fit it to the stock one on the x18. I also used the side faring where your leg rest and fiberglassed everything together into one. It took a while and alot of bondo work.
At this time there was no pipe.. I had just painted the rims black, bondo'd and primed the tank and new custom tail. There are also no elecs. I had to wait for all the parts.
Custom intake I installed, a little bit bigger then the PBU one. barely any clearance for one any larger.
I finally got the side farings on, and put on the custom pipe i'm currently waiting to wrap.

custom shifter modded the stock. It fell apart on me on a ride so I welded it backwards.

Hey man very cool bike, I do like the paint job. I had to delete your video out, as our rules prohibit any talk/showing of street riding.

Your the Man, we all Love to mod stuff, now don't mess up the beautiful job,lol.
Hey, Thank you everyone for your responses. Ironicly yesterday I was racing with my friend and I 'Low Sided" my bike, due to someone pulling out the trailer from the water and getting the track wet. He obviously didn't know the importance of a clean track. Anyways I fitted an X7 front end on, and did a little bit of touch up work...
Still waiting on kick stand, stickers, and front piece lol. I have grips is there a DIY to install and uninstall on this forum I don't feel like messing it up.
and if someone can post the DIY that would be great
