Thanks for the link. I have already ordered a smaller lightweight battery and woodcraft clip on. Time to try and lighten this baby up a tad. Need a single seat rear cowl also

Congrats on a fine looking machine. Last of the breed. Sad Japan quit V-twin sportbikes.

zpooch, old ones don't go, new ones won't come. There are always other rides to be had.
