I really like the smoked plastic reservoirs- did you say they were just stock '15 types from Kawi? Very slick....

Yep, just the stock 15 res's, bolt right up, no modification needed, and actually pretty inexpensive too.  :thumbs: :thumbs:

Indeed, I get yer odd bay area humor MP!  ;D
You going to the Nat bro? Not far from you at all, I really hope you can make it!  :chugbeer:

I have my cabin at the KOA booked, just trying to work it out with the SO.
We were trying to make it to Oregon again, but I don't think she has enough vacation so I'm hoping to make it to the NAT instead.

Compared to Ohlin's suspension, Anniversary edition ZX14 calipers, high quality paint job, the brake and clutch reservoirs are pretty inexpensive.   ???

Just for fun, I looked those up. Not counting ebay finds it looks like it would run around $150.00 or more with shipping etc. No I didn't spend hours on the research, so yeah it could be cheaper. What I did find surprised me in that almost everywhere I checked the 2015 brake reservoir was approx. double the cost of the 2015 clutch reservoir.  Then I checked prices for older models and the reservoirs were identical in price.  Wassup wit dat?  ???

Jay confirmed that price difference when he got them. He couldn't find out why either.

One is on the right and one is on the left of course. You wouldn't expect them to be the same for 2015 would ya?    ;)

Didn't you know?  Making them a different color saves tons and tons of money!!!  That white plastic is just so expensive!


OK, you've lost me max'. I know you were being amusing, but (going by your editing) I think you missed my point?

Oh well, not to worry, here you go..

My cost was only about $100 for the set, which to me was well worth getting rid of those ugly white ones.  :) :chugbeer:

I got a new rear trunk, one of those big massive Corbin 70 liter one's, man o man is this thing massive!!  :o

I'm looking forward to having it for my trip to the Nat in June, and mama is loving the comfort it provides with the big backrest and armrests, win win!!  :thumbs: :thumbs:

A very big special thanks to Phil (aka Phil's Rack), he made me a super sano custom setup rails/sliders combo that lines the trunk up with the lines of the side cases and also allows me to slide it back or forward for when I'm running my Corbin smuggler trunk or mama's Corbin back seat...
It's awesome, thanks Phil, you're the best!!  :chugbeer:

Here's some pics... I had it paint matched to my current bodywork, also had them do the bottom in a textured matte black to match the side cases, I like how it turned out.  :)
