I used to mount my own tires....then I found out the local shop will mount and balance for free if you buy from them. Their price is usually within 10 of what I can get them for online so now I just support those guys and don't have to fight tires anymore....

Noticed I've got a puncture while doing my pre-ride checks. See the shiny spot dead center just a little below the fender shadow?

It was time for a new tire anyways... disappointed that this one was dead in less than 3k.

The place closest to me is pretty fair price wise for parts. Their service costs are high though. I don't let them work on my bike but I do let them mount my tires....

Ordered tires and fitted some bar end mirrors

These are about the cheapest mirrors eBay has to offer...I've got a grand total of 35 dollars invested including the adapter for the stock bars....and yes those are turn/running lights on the bar ends, but I haven't wired them up yet.

I mounted the same bar end indicators in the stock location on the radiator shroud. I didn't wire up the white running light.

$5 china ebay specials I bought about a year ago. I'd reckon they are the same set unless yours are brand name.
I put a set on my vfr streetfighter, kept another set for... something.
My new 09 is a good enough something.

Looks great! I finally got shipping confirmation this morning 2 weeks after ordering mine. What are you first impressions?
I rode it for about 2 hours straight yesterday. Bumpy and curvy roads. Love the seat! So much better than the original. What Yamaha should have put on the bike to start with.
