Welcome to the forum.
Thanks guys, greetings from Romania! :chugbeer:

Not at all.
Predominantly black and silver, some blue, green and bordo. Magnesium is in fact a very nice brown. When the sun shines it has shades of metallic pearl red, orange, as in photo.

Is the FoBo there because the tire sensors went out?  You do know you can replace the battery in those sensors.  It's not that difficult and can be done during a tire swap out.

The front sensor was missing when I bought the motorcycle. I know the batteries can be changed, but there were two reasons why I didn't want to buy it:
- honestly, I did not want to spend @ 180 euros on a single sensor!
- With 110 Euro I bought a much better system than the OEM.
Can show also the temperature inside the rubber and first of all, you don't need to run the bike, you have the pressure instant by bluetooth. I have also intercom and if one of the wheels lost the pressure I have alarm inside the helmet, via intercom.

Ok.  Any issues with balancing on the tires with those FoBo's?  Some of my Indian buddies use them on the bikes that didn't come with sensors.

No problem of any kind. I fitted the tires, put on the sensors and balanced the wheels.
It runs as smooth as silk.  8)

That's a pretty slick tank pad, I'm assuming that's not OEM?

Indeed.
It was made from a kind of resin, designed and customized according to my idea. There is not only on the tank, it is also glued on the side fairings, between the legs.
Not s-o cheep, around 120 euro, but it's a nice piece of art.
