I just need to get some bits for it now.

Tail tidy, screen, levers, rad/oil cooler guards, bar ends, exhaust hanger, wheel rim decals are just the start and must haves.

Exhaust i'm not sure yet as i believe they'll be something new out in January (SC project), i don't mind the look of the arrow but i reckon it'd look better 1" shorter so might get that done if all else fails.

I actually have the S1KR akra shorty but having looked at how the twin pipes exit the cat I'm not sure even my exhaust guy can fabricate such a short 2 in to 1 link pipe so that it fits correctly. Im going to ask him but I'm not holding my breath.

I 'could' get a full system set of pipes and then get a link pipe done but i reckon using the Akra shorty with them will be way too loud

Liking them black forks do set it off nicely.  But prefer the leech suspension.
