This thread to summarize my overall progress and tips with my bike. I had many questions when I first bought the bike. Hopefully it will help others.
: SV racing central stance. A bit tricky to get working, but it's great. As alternative, you can get a rear stand and sell it later.
many kits on the market, all doing the same thing. The most cost effective that looks as good as the most expensive is the Ebay kit. Be sure to get the one with signal mounts. You can reuse stock plate light and flashers.
: Cycleguys. Order on amazon. It expands when needed. One third of the cost of other options, works well.
Nelson-Rigg UV-2000-03-LG. Med will work too, but I like to have more room.
: Mobius with C wide lens. Connected to left fairing for power. Can be mounted on left mirror when charging, or on helmet.
: Custom made.
: Philips ultra whites. Stock installation, not error codes. Almost as good as HID kit without the headaches.
: OEM LEDs.
Swingarm spool and sliders (2 in 1)
Xpel Ultimate kit. Order it online thetankslapper.biz This is one of the best mods I did. Keeps bike clean and protects it all the time. $89, it took few hours to do the install myself. It takes only few minutes to clean the bike, it looks like it was waxed and polished everytime.
Evotech. Best one I found, no zipties needed. Quality build.
Engine cover protection
: GB racing.
: Cannot go wrong with Bridgestone RS10 or Dunlop Q3s.
Buy gs-911, front axle hex tool to remove front wheel. Do your own tire changes (take wheels to tire shop, order tires online). Buy oil and its filter on Amazon. But air filter and oil filter washer at dealership. Keep receipts of everything.
Clean bike after each ride. Clean chain after 300-500 miles. Dupont is used for everything on chain (cleaner and wax lube). Honda bike cleaner & Polisher to clean bike. I only wash wheels & radiator with water every few months.
Tape rear tire hugger hole with black tape (on the inside after removing the hugger), it saves the rear from dirt & debris.
Rear axle nut size: 34mm. Front: 24mm so you can remove the wheels. Be sure to have torque wrenches that handle the range 2-100NM.
, currently with straight pipes. Still deciding on full system Vs slipon.
best money spent. Do as many track days and private coaching as you can afford.
: All leathers; Dainese 2 piece; Super racer jacket and Delta pants. Dainese Torque boots. Aplinestars gloves. Scorpion exo-2000 helmet (beats other helmets twice in price) great for long oval head shape.
Get latest service manual so you have all needed instructions and torque spec.
