A bloke here in Oz made a brilliant naked, café style. See link:
http://gtr1000.yuku.com/topic/5463/Engine-removal

See what he did for the instruments using 86-93 cluster.

After he built it he sold it and it has subsequently been resold.

Regards, Russell

Thanks MOB for the info. I've heard of Ermax before, but just for windshields.

Also, thanks for the tips on the 900 fitment and the backed gauge clusters, xjs36uk. I've been wondering which ones came with and without a back.

That custom cafe looks good too. I could actually reuse the 86 gauges that I already have.

The Connie looks pretty sweet naked.

not a Rifle
It was a real obscure company, european, I'm having a brainfart now trying to remeber the name, ahhhh  ERMAX.... it was the only one like it in the USA at the time , I actually found info on it back when I bought it...got it offa E-Bay from a dealership that went out of business, and it was on a display sitting in a warehouse since the early 80's.
Originally it was tri-colored, blue bottom, red and white upper, kinda resembling an old suzuki color/style.

they are still in business, but nothing like that fairing will ever be found again.... 8)

I do not plan to do a nekked Connie. Thought this might be useful to others.
Saw this discussion while I was looking at the twisted Throttle site.
 
While at Twisted Throttle's site, I came across a windshield that might work on a Nekked Connie.
Thoughts?

NOTE: I posted this as it has the Vario Spoiler blade on it.. May not be the ideal option.

 Look under "windshields" on their site to see other options.


Ride safe, Ted

Here's a nekked ZX14 that should give a decent idea of what a nekked C14 would look like: http://zx14ninjaforum.com/messages.cfm?threadid=E635E5C3-D4B7-727C-C8CFCCF8FB014250
