Ouch on the plastic melting....

I'm still amazed on how the sizing is all over the board.

My XS still seems a tad big for me. I usually wear a Medium or sometimes a Small but never XS.

So...

Well I have the XS and it seems to fit better. I guess I may also be used to the feel of my KBC VR full face helmet which is a "race fit" in that it's pretty snug with the liner even after 1.5 years...

Pearl White, size small.

Anyway, no your suggested price is not out of line -- at least to me. If anything, I would give them an out-the-door price....

While it doesn't fit me (too snug around the biceps and shoulders - dang European cut), I am really impressed with the jacket. Even if I paid retail ($200 I...

Are you using the Two Brothers with the stock turn signals in place? Does this pipe "fit" without having to worry about the lights?

Thanks everyone for the feedback.

I'm still looking at the used 2009 with less than 50 miles on it. Dealership is asking about 4k OTD... my target is about 3800 I guess.

Thanks (again) J for the info. :clap

For me, I guess then, is the question: should I be "concerned" if the used bike I'm looking at has that reservoir "full" on the [non Kawi] dealership's lot?

What is the warranty "worth" (preowned vs. new)?

I did find a used 2009 with only 27 miles on the ODO for $3k locally. No warranty though. Not sure if I should consider this nonetheless. *shrug*
