Better take it to Motorcycles Unlimited. I did and it's well worth $25

I took my last bike there and they did a pretty good job. I really needed some different hardware because the settings were maxed out because of my light weight but they got it about as good as the stock suspension could get.

Front and rear sag is set... the front springs are relatively soft, so its maxed out and sits right at 30% travel... the rear is set to match.

Motorcycles Unlimited might play with the clickers a bit, but I don't suspect they'll change much.

Just got done installing a carbon fiber Rizoma undertail and plate bracket. It looks nice. Carbon weave perfectly matches the Yoshi exhaust. It was a total pain in the . The instruction were about worthless. I had to go to buy some hardware because it seemed as though it was missing pieces. Oh well its on there and it's not going anywhere. Next up is the integrated tail light so I will basically have to take it all apart again. Ugh.

Pretty sure that's OEM. The graphics make it look like it has a different shape
