Wow, it's really easy to do once you know how to do it. Here's a bunch of pictures of my bike and what's going on/what's gone on with this pup:

Below is a picture of my bike how I normally ride. I always carry a miniature hiking backback on me and stick it on the front of my tank. I'm not forking out $200+ dollars on a "motorcycle bag". This is quick and easy to access my dollars for the bridge, cellphone, etc. You can see the stunt bar in the back -- that I haven't used once. Maybe one day when I'm done working out the kinks and add more protection to the bike.  Peace YAM 



I pulled off the subframe and this happened. Whoops! This sensor costs about $75 bucks. I'm ebaying it! There's only one guy on there so hopefully he'll accept my bid!







I'm unsure of where this line is suppose to go to/where it's coming from. Maybe it's from the smog/ais removal thing the previous owner did. Gotta love people that don't tell you they've done anything to the bike only to find things later! dddog 



I'm unsure of what this is that's also capped off. I'm still doing the research. Haven't found the right diagram yet. It's under the seat on top of the airbox.





Super-naked. I'm repainting everything, as mentioned. I have the bike covered up right now. I have to finish up the painting today. I'm excited to see the final result AND what it'll look like with some decals when it's done. Pretty sweet. Btw, I wish the bike was as light as it is without the subframe, haha. That would be REAL fun.



Oil cap that I, admittedly, ordered without paying attention. Oh well. Looks nifty and it's additional protection. And "bling".



Original oil drain before and after. It was stripped to holy hell. Again, I wasn't aware until the first oil change I did (I didn't want to believe the previous owner he had did it since he's lied about basically everything else.) I made it worse but eventually got it off. Then I ordered a REALLY strong magnetic oil drain bolt. I can pick up a hammer with it EASILY. So here's a picture of the extreme difference between stock and the new bolt and a small example of it's strength.





New 3-finger pivoting control levers. Very nifty and needed. My only issue is, on the stock, there's a screw that adjusts the amount of pressure applied to the brake and the new one doesn't. Any way I can adjust the amount of force applied to the front brake now? I might have to get rid of these sooner than later because after a month I noticed I have to squeeze the front brake harder. Front brake looks good too.

Here's the new fairings. The side panels for the airbox and the front forks are a slightly off-white. This color is in between a smoke gray/black.

Problem #2:

My brakes seem to really suck. The pads look fine. I have to press down REAL far on my brakes to get the bike to slow down more. Same with my front brake. Is this where I need to start bleeding the brakes? This wasn't happening a month ago. And I have full brake fluid so that can't be the case.

...

I had a similar problem with my front brakes. They had gotten fork oil on them when the fork seals were leaking. I tried bleeding the brakes and cleaning the pads off but ended up with new pads. Now the brakes work fine.

I may have to do the same. I haven't been able to really look into any problems with the overheating lately because I'm totally re-doing my bike. Just ordered a new seat, skateboard wheels for DIY axle sliders, new handlebars, etc. Big change-up. Hopefully when I replace the brakes everything will go back to normal. It's a real pain in the butt braking as-is now, especially with a passenger, but I just ride a bit slower and its not too too bad. Still upgrading the brakes anyway :p
