Very neat and tidy. Forks are cool and so is the whole exhaust.
How ya going with the quickshifter?

Thanks, man.

As to the shifter, the Annitori guys were very helpful via email, and are all ready to ship me one, but I've parked it for a minute until a couple of thing$$ fall into place...

Here's to hoping things fall into place soon.

Did you get HPC to do them? Does it give off much less heat?

Hey, Rob!

Yes, HPC; don't have any "before" data about heat transmission, I'm afraid, so can't do a comparison. It was the change to the look I was after, primarily.

Thinking about painting mine black. Is this hard to do? Just need a new gasket when putting the headers back on? Zero experience with doing this. Thanks

No, not hard to do. The header takes a little bit of wriggling to get in place, as some angles don't help. You do need to undo a couple of mounting bolts for the radiator so you can swing it out of the way - no need to remove any pipes or break the coolant seal, just let it swing a bit.

Yes, good idea to have some gaskets on hand for the refit, but mine went back on without leaks using the old ones.

Thanks so much for the tips and tricks. I’ll have to get serious about doing mine. Thank you.

You're welcome - another little thing about the radiator mounting - there's a couple of small bolts, then you shuffle it sideways a bit, left maybe, because it's not bolted on that side, but sits on a kind of peg, so you have to wriggle it off. No big deal, but it's not obvious till you get there.
