I chose a Tech Black version mainly because it's the best base for design changes.

So I bought this:

And a week later changed to this:

The project isn't finished yet, but this is everything I could have done by myself in my garage.

 

Bravo! Great job, lov that look!

Thank you guys 🙂

 

shaneygrog,  I raised the forks only to make my bike more maneuverable.  

It works perfectly, now I can  U turn on a  narrow tracks much, much easier.

Of course it lowered the front end a bit,  but fortunately not that much to make it unstable on the road.

I found nothing disturbing to 170 km/h.  Did not check higher speed because I usually don't drive faster than 140-150 km/h.

That should be fine then! Oh, I must say, the bike looks schmick. I like what you have done.

It's wrapped. Usually there is a problem with wrapping a tank, because of its shape, but in T700 it's very easy.

How's the raised forks working now after some time? Did you leave em raised?  I have a Black T7 on the way, thanks to your post here. Thanks for the inspiration!

You are welcome 🙂  

I did leave the forks raised and I liked it that way very much.  Will do the same in my next T7, as I had to sell the one posted in this thread to help my small company survive this stupid virus. I hope I will be able to have another T7 till the end of this year, though.
