Helps that I have extra layers of clear added to the re-paint when I ditched the "Go!!!" logo.
Then avoid em

I remounted my CF pipe guard/heat shield to the 950. Added a bunch of fiberglass heat shield to it and then used a bunch of washers to help support it and bolted it back on. Feels nice and tight, so I hope it doesn't fall off again.

Then looking into the side stand. I think that I am going to get a plate welded to it finally to make the foot contact patch a little bigger.

Rally Raid screen. Painted the back last night with Plasti-Dip. Such a quality screen, not sure why they leave the back so half-assed looking. Looks great on the bike. Wind test tomorrow.
(Plasti-Dipped and mounted a Dart screen on the bonneville too)

Addressed an overheating issue on the 950 with CJ's fan and a lower temp switch. I was too lazy to fight with that connector, so I pulled the tanks.

And finally put the motard back together
