Thanks for the welcome, fellas. I'm going to post my replies from the "bike specific" sticky in hopes that it doesn't clog up the thumpers section with 50 different DR indexes. I saw some gripes from people about that, and can understand why, but if it doesn't work... be damned, cuz I tried! Grifter, I'm still a waze off from having the bike in hand, and am just trying to plod my way through the research and crunch some numbers for now. Once I get back stateside, I will make the purchase and follow your recommendations on starting a build thread. Seems to be a valuable tool as I've gained much from others build threads. I'm not all that mechanically inclined, so no doubt I'll need some help and I'll try to make my "simplified" contributions for others like me.
