Regardless, it looks quite good. My three must have mods for any newbie motorcyclist on a street bike would definitely include some sort of extra height double bubble screen. Number 1 would be stomp grip on the tank because of the ability it gives you to isolate your upper body and number 2 would be Pazzos or some sort of customizable levers.

Do you have a mod list?

There is some kind of bad timing or misfiring going on. Happened after I replaced the starter motor. I checked everything I could without cracking the valve case/engines open.

So far, the dealership is stumped. I have a nagging feeling that a valve guide is out of whack, but the mechanic wants to make sure its not a fuel delivery issue. He's stopped charging me time on it at the moment for diagnosis. I don't have a garage :-(

dang, that sucks, at least the mechanic is cutting you some slack...yea was just kinda messing with you due to my large dis trust in any dealer especially, and most mechanics when it comes to my life in their hands....too many horror stories with bike mechanics forgetting key things or fuckin shit up
