New bits fitted
on: April 03, 2018, 08:29:49 PM
So had my first service today, plus some bits fitted, including:
Akrapovic exhaust, mototech oil and water radiator guard and Ilmberger carbon rear hugger.

Well happy, and love the exhaust popping on run over..  :046:

I’m thinking some GB Racing engine/ clutch covers........then leave it for a bit.

Until the itch to add bling gets too much 😱😂

Get that tail tidy fitted.....have to let us know how it looks without the big underseat fender. I’m a fan of the fender I have to be honest......keeps the crap off lol

We didn't get that big "mud guard" fender thingy here in Aus.. :027: Am really liking the "Motorsport" colours of the new '18 bikes though.

This is a pic of mine with the stock rear end on it..! Sans pannier scaffolding and pillion pegs of course..! :152:

Smithy.

If you wanted to take the euro4 reflectors off the forks they come off easily by using dental floss behind them in a sawing action. There's very little sticky residue to clean off afterwards aswell👍
