Not going all out on the 9er. I've done so on other bikes, and it's been pointless. I ride little, as I'm an airline CA and spend 156 nights away from home each year.

Total investment with all accessories... $8901!!

So, enough of that, here is what I've done.

Bar end mirrors
Capped mirror holes
Ermax screen
Horn relocate
Removed reflectors
Mad Hornets shorty levers
TRex frame sliders
TRex axle/fork sliders
TRex spools
GYTR radiator covers
R&G radiator guard
R&G tail tidy
R&G indicators front and rear
3M paint protection
Seat fit, fix


More to come...



Finished.

I have an R&G tail tidy, radiator guard, Yamaha radiator shrouds... All to install yet. I also have some TRex sliders to install, but their axle and fork sliders do not fit the bike. That issue is yet to be resolved.

Previous bike was a 2011 Speed Triple. What a fat pig of a bike... I will be much happier on this side of the fence.

I like how you built that gate so the kids won't screw around with your toys. Damn good idea.

I have a friend, whos neighbor lost a child because the bike fell on him. So yes, it is two fold. The kids don't mess up my pristine bikes, and my bikes don't fall on and kill my kids...
Omg! That is horrible! I can't even imagine

How much and where did you get the mad hornet levers? No ECU reflash? My ECU is somewhere between CA and PA right now. Can't wait to get it back.

No reflash...

Ordered from Mad Hornets. $40. Much better install than my ASVs on my S3. I had to customize my cutch perch to fit those, at 5x the price.

It's a flush mount 3/8" sheet metal hole plug. Standard part in the automotive biz. A pack of 10 plugs was about $3.

Total amount invested in this bike, including all taxes, fees, title, accessories, shipping... $8901

I'm pretty pleased!!

Heading home from NYC today... I will post finished photos after I get a couple days home to install the tail and lights.

So my R&G tail tidy arrived... Nice kit. They claim that the plate light uses an OEM connector to be plug and play. It does not. No problem, I've got posi-locks.

I have read that this tail tidy does not allow the use of the OEM seat lock cover. Mine however came with its own seat lock cover, so I don't see the big deal?

The connector on my R&G was a perfect coupler. Beware of the rubber lock cover, it stretches. I bought some furniture leg caps from ACE Hardware and keep a spare under the seat. They fit really well.

I will have to look because I have wired up so much stuff some time back, but I swear that it had a plug on it. My Rizoma tailight definitely had the white snap connector as I just put it on the other day.
