You mean the odo and speedometer? I have the original instrument: obviously i had to cut some and adapt it with a metal support :)

The wings got cut and finished with fyber and will soon recieve a couple of led fog lights that will be inserted into them.

The whole electrics got placed behind the air box.

So now i have an ugly SE as low as an ADV standard, with heated grips, ABS and 17 less kilograms, totally reversible to standard in a couple of hours :)

KarimADV screwed with this post 01-18-2013 at 10:06 AM Reason: spelling: sorry i am italian ;)

Me too! 62 in Denver. Went for my first real ride on my new-to-me '06 950! What a machine. I came up with its name today while riding, "The Professor" (Prof for short). I have so much to learn from this wisdom machine. Oh the places we will see together

Not up higher. Still, there was no shortage of sweat drenched helmet for me.

It's the middle of January, we're at 8000', we are faced with 5 miles of unmaintained road, and I'm riding a 500# bike. What could go wrong?







I'm glad that I got the first drop out of the way. The second one as well.

Geek, thanks for the nerf bars.
