    Ran it enough to get everything hot to re-check fasteners and make sure there's still clearance everywhere. The headers, H&B lower guards and stock upper guards are all a close fit where they mount but everything has just enough clearance and no problems with the Leo Vince headers and stock ATAS skid plate.

    Bought these footpegs for $80aud. Easy to fit and I’m very happy with how they feel.

    Fun, free, farkle! While organizing the garage, I came across an item from a previous project that was never used because it was the wrong part. So I checked the threads on the ATAS and they match so was able to use this STM billet oil filler cap, adding a bit of panache for basically free. Definitely feels faster.

    Not sure this photo belongs in this thread however I was at the Adventure Expo show today and had to take a photo of this. The Redondo Beach, CA Police motorcycle had some cool farkles, including the AR-15.

    Fact, anything anodized adds 5hp.
    That's why any off road KTM six days makes double the HP of a regular one..
    Annodized triple, axle pull, shark fin, various filler plugs...the list goes on and on

    Depends on a few things but I hope to make it out there. Are you camping or in a cabin this year.
