Smooth looking machine! Like the windscreen, low pipe is different and cool, nice rearsets, bars and mirrors are sharp...great job! I'd like to see a closeup of those front led turnsignals. Rear is a CA integrated unit?

Actually, I don't like the front signals that much. They came on the bike when I bought it. They look like 4-LED clusters with a mount. PC-modification websites sell the clusters, lol. The rear is a Competition Werkes Fender Eliminator and cleared tail with integrated LED signals...they also came on the bike when I bought it...

Luckily, the person I bought it from (someone on WR) had it painted...I bought it used.

+1 on the sliders.

Get rid of them.

The rest of the bike looks great.
Who makes those rearsets?

How do you like that exhaust?

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

Yeah, yeah, I need to either relocate the sliders or buy the LOS ones...are there any other options?

As for the rearsets, they are from Style & Performance.

I had the stock 900rr can for a while. It was too quiet. The D&D can isn't that bad. I'm not a fan of the Big Texas badging, but it sounds pretty good. One thing, though...I have a 15/45t sprocket setup, and at highway speeds, the exhaust can get annoying...I may go to a 17/43t setup to lower the revs.

Motovation uses threaded rod now, instead of all-thread.

Does the radiator grill effect the engine temperature?
Looks like it would have less air flow.

Did you buy the rear sets or were they on already? Just wondering what they cost, I can find a price on the web site?

I bought them used off ebay for like 220 shipped. The auction also included the Rizoma grab rail caps. After some researching, I found a couple of UK sites that sold them. The rearsets are $400-500 retail, depending if you want passenger pegs...and if you can find them. I just tried finding the sites again, but no cigar. You can email S&P, but they took a week to reply to a question I had...

The 16/45 sprocket set is the best I have found for all around riding. Just a tad under 5500rpm at 80mph switching to a 17/45 drops it about 400rpm. Since your runnin' the 15/45 set you must not mind standing it up all the time. Luck
