What wind screen is that...a MRA? I like it...just a little bit bigger than my Puig. Cruising at 80+ I have a lot of wind on my chest, how does your wind screen do at cruising speed?

I know it's a naked and that's what you have to deal with but a little more screen might make it a bit more comfortable on longer rides.

I see new rubber too...you running Angels again? I went S21 on the rear and I'm very happy with it so far.
Thanks neighbor! Definitely post some pics after your ride! Itís a Yoshimura wind armor windscreen. Wind hits chest/neck area. Pirelli Rosso IIIís. We need to meet up sometime.

New rotors and pads to go with the new rubber - its going to feel like a different bike out on the road! Nice. Hope it rides and brakes great with the new parts. When I wear down the OEM pads some more, I'm going to look at putting something with more 'bite' on there. But the stock pads aren't bad; makes it hard to replace them with so much life still left.

Just curious - why new rotors? Did the shop bend the OEM units? Or you just felt like running something different up there? Shop bent my 929 rotors (many years ago!) and they were $330 each for a new ones. I was upset, as you might imagine. They denied doing anything so I was 'stuck'. I learned how to straighten rotors. What else can you do? (Buy new ones, lol!)

Hey Chris,
A) You should be a professional photographer with pics like that!
and
B) Your bike looks beautiful. The blue really stands out and seems 'striking' in that dusk light.

Front right rotor warped sometime when I was at Deals Gap back in June. Havenít rode my GSXS but twice since I got back. Didnít wanna go back with just stock so looked and looked till I finally found what I wanted. Wanted to try and improve upon the stock set. Nice hitting the brakes and it not shaking like crazy! Yeah that situation would suck but if theyíre denying it what can you do!

Hey Scrub, congrats! You are the first member I have seen with aftermarket rotors. I switched mine out a while ago, made in UK by the company Braking, looks like you did the same! Combined with HH pads, is a definite upgrade in braking performance. And look good too!
