+1 That is a very clean install.

+1 The Doubletake mirror is virtualy unbreakable and saves the mounting point from breaking off.
They are adjustable like no other mirror I know of and fold completely out of harms way.

check out this for what i mean

The throttle body's are very similar/same??? between the 675 and 800. Might be a good permanent fix for the problem
I dont think its the motor for say (someone can correct me if im wrong). its the moving mechanical pieces that are exposed and get mucked up and cause the bike to idle funny or not idle at all. Its not a worry of mine at all. worst case scenario you clean it while your out riding if it becomes a problem.

The new front sprocket I installed today fits fine but it does not have the rubber rings/spacers? on both sides like the original are they for fitment to another model bike or do they have something to do with ours.
Thanks

That rubber on the stock sprocket is to reduce noise. Not a big deal.

What stepper motor problem? You mean the new map which resolved the stalling issue which some bikes had? If that's a worry the new map resolved it. I didn't have the stalling problem on mine anyway but they still put the new map on, I've had no problems.

Do keep up Mike. It seems that following someone's dust lets dirt accumulate around the Idle control valve mechanism on the throttle bodies and stops it getting to the right setting. Mechanical not software.

And it's affected a very small, but vocal, minority
