90 % compleate

Just about finished with the bike mods (waiting on bike bandit to send me a throttle tube)

Couple quick snap shots , i'll add more once it's 100% but so far she's looking good

+1, looks good. Just need to sand your tires a little more and you should be 100%

The bike does look good! I kind of like the full tank bra but at the same time I feel like they would be more trouble than they are worth.

I'm going to have to dissent on the tank-bra.
That color ... /shudder.
The black covers on the exhaust don't do it for me, either.

The mirrors, grips, piping on the windscreen and turn signals all look good.

The bag is a bags connection tank bag and so there are no straps or magnets involved

Actually , it is easily installed without having to move the tank at all and i have to say i had my doubts about it (had it for a week and debated putting it on at all but once i did it sorta grew on me , so now i like it)

To each is own but there are no covers on the exhaust , i had the heat shields powder coated black.

I'm also running red LED lights , (including the front) ...I happen to live right next to the police station and so there are lots of squads running by all the time so it'll be interesting if i get pulled over for it but for now i'll roll with it.

well you might also be able to throw the amber covers back on the front if you get busted for the red... maybe that would tone 'em back down a bit because dang those are red!.

actually after seeing how bright those are, I would vote you swap 'em back. I think thats going to be a pretty quick bust on the road... and since they are always "on" as running lights (wasn't thinking about that when the question was first asked) they could easily be confused for brake-lights at a glance, and I would want cars to know which direction I was headed. just my .02

I know in California, there is zero tolerance for red facing lights of any sort.

After watching your video, I would say it will be a quick bust.

If you've got amber bulbs in them you're fine. I actually smoked the clear lenses on my 919 to match the smoked taillight, left them clear on the 599 with a clear taillight.

Looks good, the bagster cover matches well.
