Does it move while underway? If not, I wouldn't worry about it, but for what those things cost, I'd expect darn near perfection.

Well I have short legs so the stock pegs always hit me in my calves when I'm stopped so I made up a set of poor-mans rear sets , made the pattern out of 3/8 aluminum and a friend of mine cut them out for me, there 1 1/4 inch back and the same up. I used a shift rod from a 2002 R6 with a slight bend to it , the red spacers are from Lockhard Phillips ( Bar ends ) to give it a little bling bling, and now I don't have that problem they work great

I need to start the bike I guess, and see how the vibration is at that point. It's 37 degrees out here, and roads are somewhat slushy, so no road testing here right now.

To RevZilla's credit, they are offering a free return. Just not sure what I want to do...I WANT to like the dang bag. Hehehe.

...and I never would have gotten this, if I didn't have a good amount of gift cards to 'Zilla. But since I did...what the heck right?

Stella was looking kind of junky with all my crap all over her. She sure did ride good. Perhaps I should sell the S1KR and just keep her.... I loved the comfy seat and the slightly more room to the pegs on Stella. I did however miss the anti lock brakes when that truck backed out in front of me on 60 before we all met up. I grabbed too much rear brake with the fonts and it locked up the rear for just a sec. FZ1 rear brakes are superior to the S1KRs (as an apple to apple) however the S1KRs are linked and have anti lock brakes so not exactly apples to apples). Fun day. Good friends, food, roads and bikes. Perfect riding day. Just over 300 miles for Stella (she has ridden just over 1500 miles this year, and about 2k last year) So she still gets a bit of use.

Got the Dean's R6R shock upgrade installed. Traxxion Omni Spring and buffer kit is installed and forks are in. Just a few more things to take care of and she will be ready for a shake down on the new suspendy bits!

I would have put pictures up, but my normal route of forwarding them to my work address will no longer allow me to download the pics with the super tight security measures in place. I'm surprised I can still get on here.

I'll post up some pics later!

She is a fine steed and has done well the hundreds of miles I’ve given her love.

I guess that explains why she seemed a bit perky when I got on her. She must have been looking forward to some time with her daddy.

Diagnosed a possible thermowax issue, my throttle was stuck high on my last ride and of course the search feature sent me down that rabbit hole. Michael pointed out his goes off around 140 degrees and I remembered it was rainy and cold (high 30's) ride that lasted less than 10 minutes. Sure enough the bike just never warmed up, took it out when it was high 40's and clear and sure enough after around 130 it kept a perfect 1200rpm at idle.

This website just rocks as a reliquary of knowledge on these bikes.
