Looks great!

Can you share your source for the turn signal indicators and the Tail tidy kit?

Also, how difficult was it to remove the handle bar ends? The factory seems to want to apply 2,000 ft/Lbs torque on every fastener.

Looks good! I went with RAM mounts but opted for something on the bars as I didn't want anything interfering with dash cluster. Been looking for something in a flush mount for the front indicators. However you managed it, they turned out nice.

When I get the rest of my parts for something I'm currently working on I will post some pics. Mainly re-doing my USB port and running a gear indicator. Replacing wind screen with a taller PUIG in Dark Smoke. New clutch and brake levers, just waiting for the clutch lever and the PUIG. I managed to get away with not taking too much off the first time I ran my USB cable but the gear indicator just isn't going to snake as easy as the USB cable so I have to remove all of my fairing and lift the tank and do it right. Good time to check the air filter but I suspect (hope) it's fine.

I don't see that you mentioned the grips, curious which ones they are.. How do you like them? I'm looking for some that are thicker than factory, yours look like they are pretty comfy...

Not normally a fan of fender eliminators, but here's a bike that screams for one. That stock design is flat-out stupid.

While not the OP, you might look into Grip Puppies. I have them on mine and am quite pleased with the results.


@EchoWars could not agree more.
