    taking advantage of some downtime to move the X1 project forward.
    - carbon fibre under tail tray and rear fender eliminator kit
    - rizoma bar end mirrors
    - finally stripped and polished the rear tail section.

    I used permix gasket remover, sprayed down the tail section (off the bike) and let it sit for 10 or so minutes. The clear powder coat literally pealed off. I then wet sanded: 400grit, 600grit, 800grit, extra fine sanding pad (1000grit) then polished with a fitting on the drill. I can still see the sand marks. I suspect the 400/600 grit may have been too harsh. The aluminum was in good shape, after the clear coat came off. I plan on picking up some 800/1000/1200/1400 grit and getting those sand marks out.
    Not much riding in January in Canada.

    Beautiful work! I gotta say, the tail-tidy makes a world of difference!

    I agree the Buell looks amazing. I actually just bought one (99' X1 Black). I don't even have the bike yet. But purchased some of the basics like rear fender removal, exhaust, etc.

    The aftermarket options have dried up over the years... but I still think these bikes are just timeless.
