Well here goes my third blog on 2 different sites lol

Got Star in late 2010, brand new with Yamaha crash bungs. £3500. Got the black and gold because i wasn't aware white was available until 2 weeks ago (Kicked myself all way home) Its been a bumpy ride but shes still going.

Mods -
Side panels and screen Resprayed in Gloss black
Xenon Bulbs
LED sidelights
Tail Tidy
Crash Bungs
Remus powercone
Cowel cover
Few Stickers
No rear footpegs
Rentecc Bar ends
Carbon Wrapped Sprocket cover
Strips n dots tank protectors
Yoke protector

Few month into having her I crashed her, going in a straight line at 30/35 mph crash bobbins saved me alot but still wasnt happy. Fixed the panels and resprayed them in matt black, also picked up a new exhaust for £50, not bad really. Experimented on the old one and thats when i came up with the exhaust mod.

Few weeks after this was taken i hit a gypsy carrying metal, cracked my other panel, repaired it, then dropped her on her arse when a beemer pulled out on me, resprayed it again. Shortly after the repairs i bought a Remus power Cone and a Cowel cover for £220 of one of the other site members, not a bad deal tbh,

After i bought these it all went a bit quiet and didnt touch her much, took her yamaha for busted fork seals which i got replaced under warranty. tried a few sticker combos but nothing appealed to

Quick update :) Managed to get a full refund from ebay for tank strip as well as getting to keep the strip :p Few scuffs on it so i odered some monster stickers for £2, i expected them to be small ones just to cover scuff, hell no there were 15 some big some small, i was very impressed, bargain of the century, so i set to work using them :p

Whoa nice looking bike :p I do like gold and black :) ;).

Where'd you get all your decals from? I'm looking to take the r125 ones off but like the gold on boomerangs.

Ps love her name. Might choose something online similar lines for mine :)

I don't think this guy is on here anymore. I think his bike may have been stolen...

You might have to go to a local sign shop to get one done.
