OK, found the cable. These pics were taken yesterday. Disregard the clipped master link. I only used the clip to keep the chain in place while I transported it to the dealer for the rivet link.

Notice anything missing?

You think MisterMike would approve of my pipes?


Nice and tidy with the new fender eliminator:


You can see the new plug wires running under the frame:


You should always wear fresh rubbers:


You can see where I located the CRG's in this pic:




One parting shot for good measure:

That is an awesome bike. I always toyed with the idea of taking that year Tuono front fairing thingy and adapting it for my 919. Of course the time, thought and money it would take would probably be more than just finding and buying a real tuono.

I still have a few details to work out. I need to safety wire my oil drain plug, and oil filter cover (dunno how yet, as the filter is enclosed).

I just received a set of Stomp Grips today, and i'll put those on this weekend.

I would wire the two bolts on the cover for the filter. I have heard some people silicone the bolt with some high temp. This is upposed to pass tech even for WERA. Oh yeah ridge I suggest some aftermarket rearsets. The rear brake lever has a tendency to bend and dent the frame. Mine has a small scar on the frame from previous owners wife knocking it over. I have TCM rearsets around 300.00 or your could look into Woodcraft.

Thanks, got 'em wired. When I get rearsets, I am pretty set on the Acculign. I really dig their adjustability, and cheaper than Sato or Gilles. I had Vortex on the 600RR, and their knurled pegs took a chunk of meat out of my leathers and calf, so I won't be doing that again. I really do need rearsets though. The stock pegs have zero grip.

THe Acculigns are very nice and highly adjustable. I want to see some knee dragging photos soon. I still don't have any pics with me on Tuono dragging knee. I have a few from the track but always in turns where I don't tend to drag knee.
