Here she is!




So far I have installed...
Flatlands skidplate
Flatlands Rad Guard
Seal Savers
Zeta Handguards with blinkers
Tail Tidy with blinkers
LED flash rate box
Front blinker running light box
Double take mirrors
Yamalink *also dropped the forks*
Ram mount phone holder

All of that before I ever even started her!

I have a seat concepts full low seat on order, cause I did 290 miles over the weekend and my tailbone felt everyone of them lol.
If I still have the funds towards the end of the month I will probably order a number plate bag and the IMS 3.1 tank.
See ya'll around!

Thanks ya'll. I agree, I am going to be getting her dirty this weekend at a farm where a friend tests his Ultra 4 race buggy so wish me luck! I managed to climb about 10 stairs in one shot at a 4x4 shop the other night first try and didn't bust my butt so lol.

Nice lookin' shiny bike!

With all due respect... take those seal savers off and toss them in the garbage. I had a set installed... thinking they were going to keep mud/sand out and they only trapped it worse. Unless you plan on taking them off every ride and cleaning you are doing yourself a disfavor.

BRAPP ON!! beavis

Thanks for the advice Caldsy, I think I want to read a little more about them and get a few more opinions but I see how that could trap sand and mud, I am beyond new to offroad stuff so thanks.

Anyone else have anything to say about seal savers?

I was in the same exact boat as you Banky. New to dirt... came off an 06 R6 that I had for 6 years and 30 000kms. A few prominent guys on this forum told me to take them off. But please, don't just listen to me. I'm sure others will chime in soon enough. Cheers and enjoy your new Toy. DIRT IS SO MUCH BETTER THEN PAVEMENT

I wish they made these for our bike.

But they don't come in the right size.

I had seal savers on one bike I bought used, they filled up with mud all the time, I had to pull them up and wash under them after every ride, they did more harm than good on muddy trails which is all I have to ride on. They do work well in dry sandy areas tho, they keep the wheel from spraying sand on the fork leg pitting the chrome over time.

Good idea, I changed my oil twice in the first 1000 miles, then about every 2000 after, its cheep and easy.

+1

I change the oil when I feel as though it's not as easy to change gears... normally around the 2000 - 3000 kms interval. takes about 10 minutes start to finish for an oil change (that includes popping a beer open and cleaning up the mess).
