RE: Let's see your 1100
This is my '03 1100. The only thing I had done at this point was add the sissybar and rack,I also cut the baffles in half. All the rest you see is how I got it.Next step is to fab a set of hard bags for it.Then new paint all around.

dunno if you've rode it with the pipes yet but you'll need a small baffle. i tried a lollypop but what worked even better was just like a 2 1/4 OD to 1 7/8 exhaust reducer.

is the "titanium" color wrap?
Talking about baffles, I a actually working on this.. can you elaborate more about what you did wth your exhausts? Did it lower the db a lot? I dont want to blow my neighbors's windows up lol

RE: Let's see your 1100
no the things i was doing was to regain some of the torque lost from having way open exhaust. they didnt lower the sound at all. lol

those pipes are gonna be pretty loud though. especially right after you start it and its still cold. i made a video of their sound after i put the cams on its on here someplace

You basically just swap out the dog bones on the shock. Pacific coast star and baron both make one. They both also offer a higher rated spring if you want since you're travel will be reduced. Also a slew of dog bones on eBay.

Let's see your 1100
heres a before and after of my '05 1100 custom
   

I chopped about 6" off the rear fender rounded it out and gouged out most of the crap on the underside. Recessed an LED dual intensity strip from dynamic customs for the tail/brake light. Bolted some bullet turn signals right to the fender, they are LED as well. Installed the spike air cleaner from Amazon (100 dollar one just as good as the 500 one if you put some better paint on it) and had all the metals powder coated a fine flat black. I painted the plastics myself with some flat black krylon spray paint and they came out pretty good. I plan on making some custom metal fenders come winter. I'm still waiting on my thugster exhaust from pacific coast star, once that comes in I'll paint the one chrome piece under the stock exhaust, just didn't feel like removing stock exhaust just to put it back on. You can't see in the pic but I also side mounted the license plate where the left passenger peg bolts and wired up the LED plate frame. Going to change out the front turn signals once I find a set of clamps that I like.

Nice work. I've always thought chopping the standard rear fender would be a good way to go but didn't want to commit myself and couldn't find a decent pic of a good clean sensible cut. Until now.
From the back are you able to see under the fender much? I thought if I ever did it I would need to lower the rear end.

RE: Let's see your 1100
you'll definitely need to lower the back end if your bob the rear fender. i cut mine differently, lowered it 2 1/4" and it still looked fugly. i ended up getting a classic fender

personally i think theres just too much of a gap.

I was concerned about the gap too, but the final product didn't bother me. I included some pics of the rear, decide for yourself. Keep in mind it does sit lower when you're on it as well.

Yeah gap looks good- borderline on whether or not I would lower it. Nice clean job.
