Have you any information on the turn signals in the hand guards.

If everything is alright, a RD Rally kit is on its way.

Will you be mounting front turn signals, if so, will you use flush-mount types on the fairing?

Thanks!

i'm 6ft 3" & @ 139kph lots wind buffeting around the ears area.
kit comes with 1 x 55W halogen & 1 x 35W HID
i bought a 55W HID 6000K kit fitted to both lights was easy.

You could do what I have done....
1) cut the upper 10cm of the fairing, not straight, but give the cut an arch shape
2) reattach the removed piece on top of the fairing with an inclination of about 45deg towards the rider and leaving a space of 20mm or so in between.

Buffeting gone! I can ride at a true 140-150kph with the lid open.

Once I figure out how to soften up the rear suspension, the airhawk probably won't be necessary.
Seat Concepts seat is better than stock or about the same? The stocker IMO is OK if I am riding back roads, where i alternate between standing and sitting. The long hauls where I am sitting is where it hurts. Sounds like the Seat Concepts seat is not a huge improvement in that area?

Painting plastic is a nono UNLESS you ride a KLR
