Couple questions

20,320 miles and my stock battery is on its last life.... What kind of battery is best to replace it? OEM or something else...

13,000 miles and I think its time to replace the spark plugs (not looking forward to #3) whats the best brand of plugs?

I went with NGK's for plugs, Yuasa for the battery (I believe that is stock)

#3 isn't that bad with the right tools!

Lay a small bead of weld along the edge that contacts the bike when it flips down. Then grind the bead away until fits just right.

That's what I had to do to get an old peg off of a Goldwing to fit after I lost one.


...ok, so it's not an upgrade.

I am not a cheapa$$!!! I asked for the best UPGRADE option. I cant afford the Sato rearsets (yet) but I want something more like the F4i rear pegs.
