The fairing mounts up super solid. The screen will wiggle a bit over the bumps, but nothing noteworthy really. And it will be down for the rough stuff anyway.

I used to run TKCs all the time. The K60s seem to be the same in most conditions, but the front IS iffy in on loose gravel in turns. But at least it isn't cupped into an octagon in 4500 miles...

Explain this a little more. I thought temp shifts were adapted out, and that the XIED changes are adopted to the whole fueling range.

It's very tough, thick plastic. In a fall - they just flex/deflect to absorb the energy, and have always been OK. Protects the levers and provides wind protection.

I have you beat with size 15 stompers. The TT adjustable pegs are very wide, and bring them down and forward, too. Then just carefully bend the brake pedal out a cm or two and you're good to go.

Hey Lars-

With the 12" extension - what route does the harness take to get up behind the battery like that? Did you go over the rear of the airbox, or under it and out the front?

It hiccups when it pops. I had a GTi that did this, and it was arcing to ground. Zap, miss on that cylinder. More so in damp weather.
