I’ve been lurking for a long time. Just returned from many months overseas. I found a bike while I was over there after emailing 26 dealerships in 3 states. I got 1 response. A deal fell through and I just happened to email right after. I wired the money and had my friend take it to his house. I didn’t care what color it was I just wanted it. Three months later and today I got to pick it up. It’s too hot in the garage so it’s in the house so I can start working on it. I have a ton of parts to install.

I swapped the blue tail for a black one that looks better with the desert themed wrap. My new wheels will be black too.

Some Fastway Adventure pegs that actually fit my feet.

The decal kit came out great!  can you take a pic from the rear of the bike?  Trying to see how far over (or how tucked in) the exhaust is.

 

Look great though!!!

YeH when I get home. But basically it’s about 2” inside the factory exhaust hangar

First ride on the new bike. Also first ride after selling my last bike 20-ish years ago.

Did the rear shock and 20mm lowering links today. I know lowering links aren’t ideal, but neither is not touching the ground. 👍🏼

@One Man Trail When you shoot those pics of the exhaust from the rear, could you also take a few closeups of the mounting points? Thanks!

Can the tire contact the muffler at full compression?  Like from a jump?

No, I don’t think so

I installed the 20mm lowering links and raised the forks 10mm. I have much more confidence on it now. The side stand is still not too bad I think I’ll leave it standard length for now. I have a Camel ADV stand to put on.

I put on the Tusk pannier racks and the Mosko Moto panniers. 
Tusk is decent quality strength but bargain quality on the finish details. I can tell at some point I’ll have to take this rack in to get sandblasted and properly powder coated. There are a couple areas that have small chips with shiny metal underneath. Perfect recipe for rust to sneak in under the powder coating. This happens a lot with foreign made parts. I am also considering cutting them up and narrowing them since I have that tucked up exhaust. Either that or use the extra space for a 1 gallon Rotopax water container.

Looks great!  What crash bars are you using?  Also, will a rear LED work with the exhaust if using a Tidy Tail?  Would you know?

These are SW Motech lower bars only. I can’t say for sure on the signals working with a tail tidy, you would just need to find a spot where they work.

The andystrapz frames I got from oz would probably suit your needs. Some other makes are following suit too now. Nice and close to the plastics. I want to bring my exhaust up and under too, like my old 1vj.

I cut down my Camel ADV side stand to match my lowering links. I didn’t bother grinding down the weld to make it pretty because it didn’t really matter and I rather have the strength. That poor side stand has to deal with a lot of weight.

Added a Scott’s steering damper using a Tripleclamp Moto mount. Very straightforward installation.

Received my Fisch Spark Arrester today. 
Kit 30 was the exact size required for the Hp Corse exhaust. Even though there is a slight reduction in exhaust tip opening, I did not notice any changes to performance or sound. 
the kit includes loctite, a wrench, and 6 set screws (3 extra).
