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.
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.
lowside, couple of motorcycle tips: dont ride in the wet, these stock tires are not good in the wet, and i dont like doing it and i have good tires, also these bikes will rust up just from the water mist
dont ride on the painted lines, arrows, or words, they are very slick and will cause you to lose it, ive seen it happen live, it was funny but still
even with full armor youd get hurt at high speed
I broke the bottom off my X18, riding it up a 2 x 8 up 15ft at a steep angle to get it up on the deck. I hit it running and when I got half way up the rear wheel started spinning and I put more gas and the front wheel started up , and when I came the the top I let off & the bottom of the body hit the Step and Crack. Now is a half fairing bike.
