Default my fighter in progress

92' GSXFighter 600. picked this up for 500. 2nd gear is out, but i just skip it so its cool for now. so far only replaced the headlight, waiting on parts to rebuild the rear caliper an replace the rear rotor an what not. about to try using led strips for the turn signals.
let me know what ya'll think. an if you have any advice on wiring up the leds, I know Im supposed to use a different relay for the flash timing, but do I need resistors etc...

never heard of it but might look it up sometime. that headlight is just off some random yamaha crusier that was at the boneyard. finally finished rebuilding the rear caliper and installing a new rotor. back on the street finally. thinking of readjusting the clutch tho.

just took a look at it an thats a negative on the speed triple headlight. i'm not big on dual headlights on a naked bike, just not my thing. seen some that look good, but ill stick with my old cruiser bucket for now.

plus need to find out bout the jet kit, the guy said it was a stage 3, but from reading threads round here i dont believe they made a stage 2 or 3 for kats

They do have multiple stage jet kits for the kat. I'm not sure how to tell, but I'm sure someone will chime in about that.
As for the pipe If the header Is connected to the Muffler then chances are that is a Vance & Hines header also. The kat 6 had a dual exhaust stock not a single.
Other then that, nice bike and read around the forum some more. You'd be supprised what you find out.

If the can is V&H, then most likely the header is as well for them to match up without mods.

Pre kats (like yours) have the option for stage 1 and stage 3 kits from Dynojunk... Post kats do not have stage 3 kits available.

"stage" kits are general relevant terms, and are not specific jet sizes.

Stage 1 = slightly larger jets and adjustable needles + maybe an aftermarket street exhaust.

Stage 2 = larger jets and adjustable needles + either a race exhaust or an aftermarket higher flowing air filter setup.

Stage 3 = much larger jets and adjustable needles + both a race exhaust and aftermarket high flowing air filters.

Stage 7 = Highly modified engines with all of the components of Stage 3.
