Thanks. You guys woulda loved how I dropped it by myself. Used a ratchet strap to support the front end and one of the hook points was the hole in the motor from the thrown rod...lol
Rear was supported by moto/atv floor jack.

I guess I misread the title, I thought it was what did you do to your bike today?

Nice! I just installed that same fender on my C14. I did glue on a fender extender first though.

Very nice! Looks like you saved at least 50 lbs as well I know I did when I swapped from a high-mount exit to a GP-style can.

How's the sound?

I should have weighed them, but yeah it was a quite a difference.

I only rode it around the block but it's much louder at idle, however strangely it sounded about the same as stock under a steady throttle. I didn't want to ride it much until I get a new map loaded.
