    Beyond the detailed instructions I have been the recipient of some exceptional customer service from McCruise.

    Besides McCruise there is also a company called veefour that makes a CC fitge VFR1200. It will be cheaper but the installation won't be as polished. Still works great though.

    I have the veefour cruise control. It works very well but it did take a bit of effort to install.

    Keep looking. I got mine brand new for $6999 this year. MCcruise arrived as well but haven't installed it yet.

    These low advertised prices are famous for setup, PDI, freight and any other dealer add on fees. Or worse you get there and it was just sold.

    Completed deals out the door price is what counts............

    Hey Guys,
    I'm trading my bike in for a new GS. I just listed my completely upgraded suspension package consisting of Wilbers WESA-X shock and Traxxion cartridges and springs. Please check it out. I have a MRA screen and a GPS mount I'll add later on.

    Somebody here needs to jump on these suspension components.

    Speaking from experience, they transform the X.

    I just found that I could insert the belt clip of my heat troller holster diagonally into the upper of these two fairing slots. This is within reach of my connections and will be so much better than clipping it to myself where I can't see it. I considered buying a wifi remote setup before finding this mount option. Incidentally, one of the knobs of my very old heat troller started binding, revealing how old and dry the rubber spacers had become. I have emailed Firstgear for replacements.

    @MarcParnes: Any interest in splitting these up? I'd be interested in the fork cartridges but not the rear shock.

    I can do that. I paid $1100 plus shipping to Traxxion and another $300 to RG3 to revalve them. I would sell them for $600 and we share the postage. If that sounds OK please send me a PM.
