So far so good. Seat definitely needs reshaping. Love the low end torque. No leaks, weeping, or loose parts. A mode is o.k. on smooth roads you know well. I have played with shock and have decided I will upgrade when available. Front end works for me so far. Of course, my first mod was to remove federal reflector bracket for license plate and drill new holes for plate in the slot indents provided by Yamaha. I'm looking for some bar end mirrors as I'm wider than your average Japanese fella. The Akrapovic pipe is shown on their website but no suppliers have them yet. Haven't had a chain since my RF900. Does anyone have experience with the Scottoiler? Wifey says bike looks cool (especially likes blurple wheels), but says roadstar Warrior was better for passenger. This means she will probably only sit on back once. (O.K. by me, we have T-Max which she will ride on with me anytime!) I am amazed by the torque/power. Hit 8000 rpm in third gear and she started to come up gently. I'm over 200# dressed to ride so I'm impressed!!
