Who is getting tired of reading my post?

Okay, I need help with bike set up

1. Took the upper fairing and lights off as well at tach and speedo, but now I have all these ugly wires just hanging out and no where to really tuck them away... help me..

2. Radiator... I imagine this thing is going to get pretty hot just riding the lots. Anyone ever have a problem with over heating? With the speedo off I can't tell my temp...

3. Tire pressure... guessing about 20lbs but I will be learning out on the road. Would like to slow them down. Too low? Too high? Anything with the front tire?

4. Handle bars? Clip ons now but I have motocross bars I could put on there. What are the pros and cons of each?

5. Does anyone raise the rear of the bike to make it easier to endo? I found a kit to raise the rear 1.25 inches... Worth it?

6. Suspension set up? I have stiffer springs in the forks for stunting with the rebound all the way in. What are ya'll running at?

7.Anything I missed?

1. zip tie the wires and put them in your air box

2. wire up a switch to turn you fan on in the lots, but leave it to where the fan still comes on by the thermostat.

3. rear tire for learning can be lower, i learned on 10-15lbs in rear, make sure you have 32 in the front for those hard mouse traps so you wont bend your front rim.

4. DB are something you'll like or hate... and they make it easier to ride. i still prefer clip ons.

5. leave your bikes geometry alone.

6. my suspension is all stock and i have no problems for learning, after you get "good" you can get your forks raceteched for you

7.cant think of anything you missed, keep asking more questions if needed

I would rather be a fast ( educated and experienced) rider with a slow bike than a slow rider with a fast bike. Spend that money on some track days!

Pulling the wires back into the air box is a really good idea...

The radiator is already wired up on a toggle for the fan

Also, am I going to need to add more oil? Don't think I am going to be doing any really slow wheelies at 12 any time soon...

Held some db bars up to the bike and everything will reach but the braided break lines... Was thinking about the z1000... its a standard bike with db bars. Maybe I could find some cheap steel braided lines.. if it wasn't for that problem, I would have already put them one the bike. Figured might as well try them out and if I wad up, db bars are a lot cheaper to replace!
