This bike has been sitting for about 2 years now and everything is kinda beat up looking..

I wanna replace the brake/clutch handles.. and also the grips and switches.. anyone got some good links on where to change for some close to OEM parts. Or some cools mods I can do. Any help much appreciated!

Start with an oily rag and polish the switches. You might be surprised.
I have a new set after market switches If you like?

You can spray paint the faded switches and they will look brand new.

Yeaa man, probably start with dish soap and a garden hose.... maybe even just run it through a car wash.

Then worry about detailing it. Automotive scratch remover polish and a soft buffing wheel drill attachment worked super good for me. Plastics get surprisingly bright, almost reflective even. It will take the white ink off though. Not really a big deal tho IMO.

I did the mikuni choke plunger mod to get rid of the choke cable and clean up the handlebar. I like the way it looks.
