    Making the Piranha P-160R Street Legal

    Decided to make my Piranha street legal in the off season of racing.
    Will be on the docket in October to get a title for the Piranha after presenting proof of ownership with a VIN#.
    Ordering my headlight kit, brake pressure switches, tail light with signals, and a speedometer from Motostrano.
    Will update the further along I get.

    Here is the list of parts so far:

    Headlight


    Taillight


    Voltage Regulator


    Brake Pressure Switches


    Horn


    Control Switch


    Speedometer


    Not sure on the mount for the speedometer yet. Might buy a premade or go with a custom bracket we would make.
    Hoping the brake pressure sensor works the way I plan as well.
    A few things could change but overall these are the parts I am going to need.

    On my SSR the stock brake line (same as most china?) didn't have a banjo for the pressure switch, but they really need a SS brake line anyway (and better pads).

    I did use one of those brake pressure switches on my CB400F and it works great.

    What I have found to work best for a speedo is a handlebar phone mount made for mountain bikes. You can find many free GPS speedo apps. Works great

    Tempted to lace up the stock hubs with 12in hoops so I can put a different set of street tires on instead of the TT93's

    illegally on the roads adds a bit more to the thrill factor!

    not getting the tickets is more fun... although you still get tickets for wheelies and hooliganism regardless of the plates

    Tax Commission is running a check on the VIN to make sure all things are on the up and up
    Hopefully hear from them tomorrow
    Then I get some paper work for the tag agency
    Once done with that back to Tax Commission to finally get a street title
