MC22 streetfighter / cafe fighter

Hey everyone and welcome :) I haven't been on this site since my last mc22 was stolen in early 2013.
Its good to be back!
So recently picked up an MC22 that was a little worse for wear.... and when I say a little, I mean ALOT.
(have to work out the photo situation)

Anyway, this is a thread of my build as it goes. I've decided to go streetfighter influenced for something different. My last bike was finished with the Tyga T8 kit and I loved it, however, why make the same thing thing twice?

So, as I said, this will be streetfighter, cafefighter influenced, so if you're not into that kind of thing I guess you can just leave instead of telling me I should have returned it to factory. That shit is boring!
This build will not happen overnight, so don't get your pants twisted.
I'd love to show you a photo of what it will look like when its done, but nothing I've found really matched it.

Suggestions and ideas most welcome. Enjoy :D

Hey man are you able to put pictures of the speedo and show how it's connected to the bike and where the wiring runs.
i dont have a speedo yet im thinking on getting the trailteck vapor and i have gotten a new wiring harness because the previous one was very bad and had wires going everywhere. i have just tucked the wires inside and behind the lights

I've ridden the 250 to what I believe is the sane limits of the bike. I got knee down around most corners in the hills. what held me back the most was actually the rear shock. i was being thrown off the bike half way through a turn because a bump appeared. Now that I have the gixxer, and all it's smooth newer suspension glory, I have no plans to take the cbr out on anything other than city commutes. That is because I find the 250 can fit through much smaller gaps in traffic than the 600. Lane splitting is much easier haha.
