your seat look's good, i used 1 of those led light's and did not like it . the person's behind me had a very hard time seeing it, so i went with a ds450 brakelight, also i first used wood block's for spacer's as you did, then realized that they might rot, so i replaced them with coposite decking and painted them with krylon fusion.

hey sweet project, long story short i would get a rev, the ride, floatation handling are amazing vrs ZX, i rode a 03 700 and the difference is crazy i wont go into deatails but if your a mountain rider i would get one, other wise some mods i would do is makeing toe holds flat, maybe trying to bump plastic forward were your knees are, you have tall risers and a great seat set up. a rev has more usable travel, the rider is 11 inches forward, the engine s moved back and lower, also the tunnel is different to prevent getting hung up on snow. if you can move the plastic forward or replace it with mesh fix those darn toe holds with forward bars tall seat it shlould boondock pretty good.
Work all summer sled all winter! and then some

Hey, haven't posted in a while. To be honest, I completely lost interest when springtime came. I am into drag racing and when there is no snow, there is no interest in the sled! Anyway, it snowed today so the interest came back. I finished the rear trim piece. Found some old fender beading to keep the seat from getting cut up from the sharp edge, and mounted the taillight. Turned out OK, it's just kind of odd the way the back of the seat is perfectly flat. I may go to a bigger taillight just to break up the flat spot some. Next project is the handlebar spacer. It may be slow going, but I'll get it done.

This is perfect. Makes me want to do it. I have a buddy that has a rev seat and trunk laying around. I might buy them. I am 6'4" and worried about feeling cramped with the rev seat conversion.

You will unless you move the bars up. My opinion. As it is now, when I turn the bars hit my ribs.

OK boys, finally did something tonight. I made some temparary spacers just good enough to take for a test drive, hopefully tomorrow I can do that. It's ugly, so don't tell me, I know! I ended up with a stack of spacers adding up to 1 7/8" total. That cleared the frame, didn't mess up the geometry of the steering, and cleared the coil. They were all VERY close though. That's why I have an odd measurement for the spacer, not a nice round 2" or 1", 1 7/8"was exactly the max! I only had to reroute some wires and cables, and the big thing was I had to space the airbox up about 3/4". The first picture is my ugly stack of spacers under the steering post. IF THIS WORKS I WILL MAKE A NEW SPACER OUT OF ONE BLOCK OF ALUMINUM!

This is the spacer I put under the airbox so that the steering post went into the notch it is supposed to. It's just a block of aluminum that I milled 2 notches in so the rivets would reach.

This is the worst part of this, I had to cut out around the front of the post from moving it forward. Again, if the test drive goes well, I will make some kind of cover for all this.

Side view. Not only did this move the post forward quite a bit, it also moved the bars UP more than I expected. They are quite high now.
