    The plate is. You'll need to add your own roundel.

    The plate is, which is well built, but I added the logo.

    Ordered these head covers a
    few months ago, just installed a few days ago. I did have to remove the left side crash bar to install. No clearance issue once installed.

    One more quick question about the foot pegs: When you put them in a lower position, do they shift forward or backward at all? I’d be fine if they moved back a bit but definitely not forward any with my Yeti feet.

    No, they move straight up/down.

    They also lock their rotation with metal tabs. Some pegs I had on my last bike would sometimes rotate if I hit a big bump standing which annoyed the hell out of me. These are expensive but well built.

    Was at Performance Cycle of Colorado today and noticed they had some Kriega OS-Rack loops near all the bags. On a chance I picked them up to see if they'd work for the new pillion rack. They fit perfectly! Pinched down they add a perfectly aligned mount point for all my Kriega bags that takes less than 30 seconds to mount without any shifting. Gives a nice, clean finished look as well when no bags are mounted.

    I've got a pretty tall torso and while I wouldn't say I had excessive buffeting I did feel I could get a bit more height on the windscreen long before it bothered my vision. Damn, I wish I would have installed this sooner. It's a pocket of calm behind there now. Since I usually tint my car windows slightly, I went with the smoke version, which I feel complements the look a lot more than the clear. They also offer a "dark" version but I looked at someone while I was at the shop and it was too damn dark for me. Overall I highly recommend it, well made and fits perfectly.

    Wasn't really a fan of the black guards as they covered to much of the nice looking white frame. So I removed them and added Rizoma aluminum dust covers over the swing arm bolts.
