Just finished a few mods on mine.

Hey guys,

Just finished a few rather cheap mods on my GW250 (Inazuma, as known in this part of the world). Here're some mods done.

- Took off the inazuma stickers on the tail



- Replaced the headlamp with a classic 7" round one, retained the stock instrument console



- Bar end mirrors



- Cut out the front fender the best i could think of. I wish there was a better way though. Still, doesn't hate it as much as i hated the stock one.

- Cut the rear fender just above the license plate. Had to reposition the indicators closer to the reflector.



- Powder coated the headlamp and the mounts



- Took some chrome off the exhausts, levers etc. Was too shiny for my liking



- Yellow headlamp Just a thing i like these days, this will go back to normal if i can't find a brighter bulb / kit

Just finished the first service, and will get to the exhaust next. It's too meek at the moment. I do hate really loud pipes, but a bit more bassier tone would be nice for this i think. Not really willing to spend on a new aftermarket one. Might just mod the stock ones.

Cheers from Bangalore

You did a great job. I like the colored headlamp and that you took away some of the stickers. Are you planning anything else for changes or is it exactly how you want it?

Great job, i wonder that if you made those thin metals binding instrument panel to the headlamp both sides? or were those already there with the stock headlamp?

Thanks! I'll maybe mod the exhaust a bit. I do like the current silence and peace i get with the stock exhaust on a long ride but it could sound a bit better i guess. And definitely, have to clean up the tail section.

Oh those were made. Those two points were the only usable ones to mount the instrument unit after the stock headlamp unit was out. Unless i make some custom plate for it to sit on or something..

Great job! This somewhat "industrial" look is currently trending in Southeast Asia too, it seems. Countless Indonesian Honda Tigers (otherwise known as the Honda GL-200) have been modified to look like this. Please let us know more about the de-chroming process.

Cheers from Jakarta.

Love the round headlamp, very retro cool.


How did you get the stickers off without marking the bike, I'd like to take mine off also.

I just pulled 'em out, (nice and slow, to get them off in one piece). These don't leave a strong glue residue usually, and in case there is, a bit of a rub with a soft cloth will get rid of it. You can also heat the stickers a bit with a hair dryer / heat gun, before pulling them out.
