I put a 2 Brothers can on and got rid of that cartoonist looking contraption. Very simple to do,  even more so the second time when I mounted it straight. Next up... move the Adaptiv over to the right side and mount my antique Zumo 550 on the left. I'm embarrassed to ask but,  where is the key lock for the seat? All I have is the owners manual and the picture is less than ideal.
Thanks
Richard

if you get that MOT'ed, then why not go the whole why and get M134s on each side? One forward, one backwards. Like those mototerminators in T4 Salvation (although those were Ducati's).

while I didn't do this today, it was a combination of last weekend and tomorrow. Changed out the pipe for a two brothers carbon black series, BMC air filter and just got my ecu back from Guhl yesterday so that will be going in tomorrow.

feb 2nd I ordered my seat from Corbin, still waiting on that and was told Tuesday by them that another couple weeks. I hope dealing with them wasn't a mistake as they seem to be in a now rush, when I ordered it they told me 3-4 weeks...it is starting to feel more like 2-3 months!

It took 3 or 4 weeks to get mine but rest assured, it will come and the quality is outstanding.

I couldn't tell you. My drinking got away from me a LONG time ago so I had to quit. You know the guy that turns in to a real  :censored: when he drinks? That's me. If you think I'm bad now, add alcohol and see what happens....

Nice add-ons Bill! How are those light bulbs? Can you see a difference in them?

They seem to be better. I'm gonna withhold judgement until I get a chance to ride where there is nominal light from street lights etc.

Rain went away, sun dried the roads, so a ride was in order.  Visited a dealer friend and checked out the new Super Duke and Duke 690.  So sweet. Also drooled over a 2015 Montesa Cota 4RT260  trials bike. (160lbs)

 Lots of wind and traffic, but the back roads were a welcome sight.  Hope all that snow and mess so many are dealing with will go away soon.  Should have never happened in the first place, with Global Warming and all.....tp

What does the gas cap mod enable one to do? Remove the key with the cap open??

Ill start off with my list ...

* Wash and wax
* Gas cap mod
* Handlebar risers
* Throttlemeister
* Tankslapper paint protection
* Partial de-badging. Removed those huge Kawasaki letters.

I have new grips that I was wanting to install, but was severely depressed to find out that it is the actual grip itself that is heated and not an element inserted inside the bar end. I really hate the stock grips!! They are very uncomfortable without gloves on.

Tomorrow it will be a fender extender and Canyon cages, and Phil's rack

No, we can already do that.

The mod. allows the fuel cap to be closed without the key being in it, which cannot be done on a stock bike.
