    Tcolt, I see you got it setup Bro.😁👍🏽👍🏻😎

    That’s a sweet looking ride you have Bro. Have you considered shortening that SideBurner exhaust? It produces an even more AWESOME sound when it has been shortened by 12 inches. Plus, it really gives the 9 a more aggressive, masculine, and sporty look.

    Well when I was attempting to tame the Dragon my air ride blew from user error... I just got my bike back with a new air shock. Sure did miss her.. also got new Avon tires installed and went with the 260 rear.

    I got tired of the bike`s look with the V-Stream windshield , so, today I took it out for a change .
    I did not touch the V-Stream clamps so I can put it back on any time I want in 5 minutes .
    The V-Stream works on a limited way by deflecting only the center of the body from the incoming wind and since I am now using a full face helmet , I am not missing it much , lol...
    The bike now looks more muscular and I like it too , so , I now have two different looks on the same bike .

    OH and I Definately like the no wind screen...kinda takes away a little of the old man look... No offense to those that are, I don't think I am but my body sure feels like it more often than not!

    Question for all those who have lowered the rear. I'm not sure if y'all ride like me so for many this may not be an issue however, is their a noticeable difference in weight transfer to the rear under acceleration. I ask this because it's fairly easy (at least for me) to hang the front end when riding the way these bikes were meant to be ridden. Just curious enough if it will happen more often because I Definately like the lowered stance.

    The bike looks awesome Josey, you might as well ditch the side bags for a while and go for the sleek look. I will be removing my sports windshield shortly also. I am not really a big fan of windshields.

    Yeah, I would like to do that , too , but I need to have something where to put small things ... Today, as an example , I went to the pharmacy to get 3 prescriptions for my mother (98 and counting , God bless her) and I was able to use the bike because I had the bag , otherwise I would have had to use the car .
    The bag is a practical thing and very convenient for small things , etc . That allows me to use the bike more frequently , lol. That was the reason I installed the bag anyway... It was frustrating not to be able to bring anything or buy anything because I had nowhere to put it .
    Let say I need to go to Home Depot to get some bolts and nuts ... I can use the bike instead of the car , etc . Believe it or not , I have been able to bring home chinese fried rice on that bag !!!!
    My one concern about taking out the windshield was that I had the magnetic plastic card (needed to open the automatic gate entrance of my community) attached to the windshield , but then I found a small leather wallet type bag I had around and I attached it to the windshield base clamps on the left side ... problem solved , the card works the gate from inside the wallet perfectly and it even looks cool on the side of the cowl , lol...

    Just curious, did you buy those from caliper covers or were they already on the bike. They look nice.

    Did you have to rerun any of the cables for those extensions? I'm 6'4", and the handlebars are definitely a bit far forward for me. I feel like I'm riding a cruiser sports bike hybrid!

    I found it to be a very easy and straight forward job to do that anyone with basic mechanical skills could do, just pay attention to the order of the clutch disks and you’re good to go

    I had to replace all the cables with +3" SS length cables .
    Front brakes, clutch and the two push and pull throttle cables ... all had to be replaced . I chose +3" instead of +2" on the cables length , following an advice on being a lot easier to install and it was right on : the throttle cables were a pain in the ass to install even thou they were an extra inch .
    If you want to install risers , you will need extra long cables .

    What engine guards and air intakes are those? They look great!

    [QUOTE=slooker;4003772]What engine guards and air intakes are those? They look great![/Just a generic set of engine guard that I purchased from Ebay for about one hundred bucks. I found out afterwards that there are superior ones available online for about double the price but overall I am happy with the outcome. The air intakes are Q5 made by cyclehouse. It can be purchased from meancycles, be aware they are a bit pricey.

    Debeaver and flush mount turn signals, license plate relocate. I will probably be changing to a directed pod light for the license plate light instead of the LED screw-ons that are on there currently, wiring was tricky to get there - waiting to see how it holds up or if I come up with a better idea.





    Engine Guards and Flatz on the front.



    Ordered some small parts, odds and ends I found that were missing from previous owner - debating on what intake to go with.

    Thanks, just went with OEM parts

    On my 18’ I got a new rear tire on it, just a Dunlop E3 250



    And I’ve finally also added some ISO grips to it



    And since my 09’ already had the ISO grips, I added a throttle boss to it as well

    I put the V-Stream windshield back on the bike . It was uncomfortable at highway speeds even with a full face helmet , because the wind was hitting me on the chest , so I just put it back on .

    Without it

    With it
