Using my introduction thread for my various upgrades vs starting up another thread...

So far I have pulled the reflectors, decals, put on a complete exhaust with a reflash, changed windscreen, and today... my Evotech tail tidy!
A bit fiddly on install, but a beautiful piece of aluminium (right UK?  :164:) .

My bike keeps looking faster!  :047:



Cheers

I preloaded the rear spring slightly more today (1 turn). Not a lot of difference felt - I'm looking for tighter turning early/mid corner...
Next I will do the zip tie on the fork tube to see what I'm using up front. Shoulda done it already.

Lighter and better!

I know I'm basically talking to myself in this forum, but I'll keep pics going for a while. 1100 miles now and the bike feels pretty good.
The second baffle I have used in my K-Factory pipe also rattles. I have to quiet that.
Other than that I am enjoying this torquey bike and the fair amount of curves where I live. Pleasing ride.

I had some fiberglass laying around, so I put a wrap of it on the baffle where (I think) it was rattling. The pipe sounds so good - just gotta get rid of the buzz at a certain rpm.

The po po let me off two weeks ago.  :156:  When I rode off, I took off in second and was in 5th by 20mph lol. The loudish pipe isn't always good!
Rained today so I couldn't see if I nipped the rattle..

And one from yesterday out with a friend. The Aprilia is a little more mental than the Kawi.
