What have you done to/with your SCR950 today?

It's really subtle (I think).
Can scrutinizers find what my 10 minute project was for today?

Coincidentally, this is a nice view of the shaved/flattened stock seat, for those interested.

Hmmmm, so how about the matching red striping on the gas shock remote reservoir?

Stripes on reservoir like Rokrover said, and number 42?

Today the last few parts i was waiting on arrived to try my hand at eliminating that plastic crap handing off the read fender.

Forkbrace P.No. 1TP-F31H0-V0. Those gaiters sure show the bugs and road grime.

Rokrover & Tadlock win!
I found some leftover reflective striping and black reflective tape in a drawer and that was the result.

Add some of that reflective tape to the Forkbrace too! Or would that be too much red?

I saw these levers on Charley Boorman's bike and was drawn to the little holes.
Guess who dragged out his Harbor Freight drill press this evening and set about making some for his SCR950 on the kitchen table before "she" got home?
LOL
I then buffed them with 0000 steel wool and then gave them a proper polishing with a cotton wheel and some Meguire's Hot Rims mag polish.
Hey, it was a free project. Why not? LOL

Like Eddie, I believe a number plate should have a number, and I was inspired by the artistic font used on a local cafe sign. The subtle association is with the cafe racer scene made famous by the Ace Cafe Rockers and the 59 club for vintage gents with an English heritage like me. However my local cafe is the 86 named after its frontage highway. I copied just the 8 to stay within single digits, unlike Eddie’s 42 whose significance may be revealed to the scrutineers.

Meanwhile, on the thread drift avoiding trouble when “she” comes home, my best was being caught with the oven emitting noxious fumes on the bake setting. Was I in trouble when “she” discovered a Ducati crankcase inside! My reasonable justification of preparation to shrink fit a new bearing fell on deaf ears

Feel like we should just have a thread for the shenanigans "she" catches us doing.

Fuming ovens and holes in the kitchen table aside, where did you get the number 8 decal from?
