    So I find myself here! Hoping to have it completed next week as booked in for the stuff I don’t like doing, new clutch hoses, brake de-link kit, oil hoses & full service.

    So far I’ve done, front fork up-grade & powdercoated legs, rear shock, radiator, hoses, powder coated wheels, new tyres Pilot Road 4’s, repainted fairings, indicator up-grade, bar risers, carbon rear hugger, new stickers “still to go on”

    Now just can’t wait to get out on it :aplastao:

    Quite nice paving but the decking is in need of attention.

    Why you bothering to delink?? In the real world it doesn't make a lot of difference unless your name is Valentino.

    Save yourself some money. Spend it on some polish for the paintwork.

    I wouldn't be offended by that plus it looks like you have almost every tart option going.

    Fender extender needed, a must for keeping them down pipes cleaner

    No need to screw them on - the mastic/sealant used for sealing fish tanks do the job perfectly.

    For those that ride in bad weather the fender extender is a must for keeping the radiator relatively clean.
