yes, i too have been known to let patrick do it, but i felt inspried to do it myself yesterday since it was such a nice day outside. like i said if anyone wants to learn how to do it. let me know and ill be more then happy to teach/learn myself. Because ive done it on my bike, and its pretty straight forward on all SS bikes. But always up for learning different bikes.

I take my tank completely off and set in on a chair to the side. Plus the 300 screws that hold the filter lid on seem to be a little overkill. My lid has I think 15 screws that hold it on I guess Kawi fixed that.

i guess you could take the tank off. but thats overkill when i got a bar to hold it up and only 6 screws to take off

I LIKE THE FACT THAT YOU DONT NEED TO TAKE THE TANK FULLY OFF, IT CONSIDERABLY MAKES THINGS EASIER.
BY THE WAY, IF A REPLACE THE OEM AIR FILTER BY A K&N WILL I NEED A POWER COMMANDER AND REMAPING?

I have a PCIII and just switched from stock to a BMC. Guess I need to remember to have Patrick tweak my map next time Im at Motorcycles Unlimited.

Good write up dude, Im sure it'll get a lot of use!

Now someone should post up a "how-to" front brake pad swap
