Hi Hector... First things first... Bike looks good mate, these are a fun bike to play with...

3s batteries and a 13.5 motor is crazy power...! Be ready to break stuff...!

I would be very careful with your antenna out the back like that too... They get banged about a lot... I run mine under the body work to keep it safe, and never had any problems with reception or damage...

Well done...

And your English is very good... No need to apologise...

I have the twin front disks on my GPV, but I have adjusted it so the brake pressure is only applied to one disk. I found the bike is too light for twin front disks, either the front wheel locked up all the time on dusty surface, or flipped over with high traction.
