I have that reversed.  The R6 stem is shorter that the stock stem.

No.  I really screwed up on the tires.  The front in the pics is 120/70-17.  I swapped that out with the 90.  Overall diameter is super close now. Twinduro tires.

I got it, So a longer stem is required.

I like it. What part# are those K&N filters? Is the side-to-side clearance okay?

The K&N logo is stamped stamped on the ends of the pod filters.

+1. I love the look of pods and I'd love to covert the air filter space to something useful but, I've heard nightmare stories about the pods too much.

 nice1

obviously. asking about the part number. like, it looks like an RC-0984 but i'm wondering if he found ones that are narrower to accommodate the carb spacing.

Sorry -- I misread your post as two separate sentences at that point.  I.e. "What part #?  Are those K&N filters?"


I've always wondered how pods on bikes handle wet weather.  Seems to me like that would be a potential problem.

Hey Guys, I just wanted to give an update.  Things are coming along pretty well.  Wiring harness is consuming a lot of time.  New risers and handlebar.  Fitting a new Acewell speedo.  Got the exhaust on.  Fabricated a rear pan/wheel well.

Look'n GREAT! My '92 Nighthawk CB750 is pretty much all OEM at the moment (recently purchased, via Craigslist), but I'm think'n about wrapping the same section of pipes as you have, in black. Any tips or downsides?

Nice progress
Just a observation your break fluid reservoir looks hmm out in the air and sort of does not flow on the handlebar.
That's what I see sticking out...

I plan on shortening the hose and fabricating some kind of bracket.

I suggest you don't unless you like to replace your pipes sooner than later. They trap the heat and rust out faster. They look great but don't do anything for longevity.

Make sure to soak the wrap before you install.  I made the mistake and just lightly sprayed it down with a spray bottle. 
Some people say the wrap is good and some say its bad.  Personally I dont think it would do anything.

Even the manufacturer recommends not to :)

Wow. Well, that settles it. No wraps for me! Thanks for the Intel.
