Said goodbye to my 6yr old 40,500 mile Naked today and hello to it's 2021 successor.
Replaced all the pads with EBC HH and fitted an extender to the hugger.
Some time in the future I will get round to putting my Nitron NTR1 shock in.
I need to get used to the clutch I stalled about four or five times during a short ride something I rarely ever do. Hope it improves with time.

Oh I forgot to mention, no throttle snatch at all. (y)

Dekker, that's great! Thanks for the update. I have every confidence it will perform well for for you because it is build on a great platform. Is the clutch that much easier pull? That would be great for me. I have a 2016 and if I am not in a hurry I find myself going from first to third to sixth.

Beautiful bike! Cheers.

I think I had a problem on one of my bikes that was caused by the small connector below the clutch assembly on the bars not being connected from the factory/dealer, and it resulted in inadvertent stalls, Can't remember if it was my GSX or a previous bike, but might be good to check.

Congrats!
We are waiting for a deep review;)

Gas by wires, quickshifter, light at night - all work perfect?

Couldn't resist it had to take her clothes off - in order to fit usb feed, no pic of that yet.
Managed to get the old (refurbished) R&G Rad guard to fit with use of cable ties.
Some low res pics.

Ooh what a big CPU/ECU you've got.

Next job is to see if there is a spare feed behind the headlight like before.
Riding experience is very good only done around 40 miles but have overcome my initial clutch problems.
Thanks for all your best wishes.

I'm assuming the bike feels pretty much the same as the old one as far as power, handling, and braking?
How's the ride by wire feel compared to the old cable operated throttle?
