Lol...I have on order clear signal lenses...in canada you have to have amber signal lights....so I'll put clear (smoke) ones on and put in amber bulbs. :)
Amber signals here too but I was referring to the reflectors at the bottom of the forks that belong on bicycle spokes ;)

Work in Progress but you can see how it's coming along

I'll do a write up for anyone else who wants to follow suit but had never done it before - easy enough but I made a few mistakes that effect time and nothing else - more my style of naked machine

Ordered a custom line from hel on the 14th arrived today (16th) top service

ordered to replace the ABS line to the front calipers after I took the wrong line out & mangled it - not happy with knowing it looks shocking under the hood

+ & more importantly , took the bike up the road , hitting the brake results in no engagement grabbing it again results in rock solid braking

I'm thinking about bypassing the abs & going straight to the calipers from the master cylinder

Anyone done this or know a thread you can link me tio

Nice One

Woke up to some white stuff this morning, so it seemed like a good day to do some projects.
1. KN Filter removed, Sprint Filter installed.
2. Oil & Filter Change.
3. Toby Steering Damper installed.

A few more projects over the next week and I'll be good to go.

i did, but I tweaked the fork setup & the wobble went , I'll never hit those speeds again though , probably a good idea if you opens it up up above 130

I set mine up soft for a few years but on highway rides at wot going for it I’d have to back off from time to time against lesser bikes. Tryed compression both ends didn’t help probably made worse. Now rebound was a game changer. From where I was for a softer ride I increased. Firmer Front now probably closer to stock. Rear probably half out from fully in. I adjusted for highway’s Didn’t change harshness as much as I thought. Was more of a weave during hard high speed wot. Haven’t felt it in a year very happy. Most weaver wobbles start at the rear

Hey GSXS NH

It’s about time you got that thing installed! I guess you haven’t tested it yet due to snow, but it seems to work best at one click out from full stiff. I think you’ll like it, the bike feels planted and much more stable.

for anyone interested in the Toby, search the forum for my post “who wants a Toby steering stabilizer”?
