Hope so. Dealer should be emailing or calling me in the AM with an ETA. Gonna be a rainy day so I'm not in a rush plus it's cold out. I'm going to order the NRC fender eliminator then figure a way to either weld or bolt on a door hinge so I could flip my plate up.

I love that tail tidy I just installed mine tonight

Do you have a gap between the body and the tail tidy?

how do you like the new michelin 5s? I'm a fan of the Rs tires. And Grats on the new bike.
They are the power series so they should be good. I’ve always loved Michelin tires. Can’t give a honest review on them it’s been too cold out she still trying to get some miles on them

NRC Tail tidy. Cleans up the bike so much! Definitely worth it imo and it’s bright too!

Any concerns with water intrusion through the gap?

I wouldn’t be concerned about it. I really don’t ride my bike in the rain. But I doubt it would get up there. If anything my insurance card would get a tiny bit wet first that’s if the water even made it up there

At the NH/MASS border.
Apartment living and my bike sits in the garage. Its only torx screws right? I might be able to do this on my own with a simple torx setup.

Just take your time with it you’ll be fine. Torx screws and Allen head. A guard is definitely needed regardless of what brand you use

Don’t wait until you get an exhaust, unless you already have it, I would not ride mine without the radiator guards.

I'll be throwing the exhaust on soon. It's still winter here. I'm going to try to get my break in miles done around town then after the first service put them on. In all my years of riding I've never had them nor have I ever gotten a hole in my radiator or oil cooler. Non of the guys I've ridden with have either. This will be the first bike I put them on.

Which exhaust did you get?

Looking at the Akra with the carbon can. BUT, i hate how it hands from the passenger peg mounts...Maybe ill go for a shorty GP style exhaust but I dont want to deal with loudness issues at the track.
