Finally warmed up enough to apply the Real Time Industries reflective fairing decals, and TechSpec tank grips, and panier pads. When I placed my order with TechSpec I requested a couple of extra scrap pieces, which I used to make pads for the trim between the front seat, and tank bottom, and the 90 degree areas at the back of the lower fairing panels, both of which are prone to scratches. The left side panier pad covered the only visible scratches on my bike, caused by not lifting my leg high enough when dismounting (boot scrapes).
I also installed the wireless transmitter, for my Gmax helmet brake light. Installing the transmitter on the bike was easier than changing the helmet light unit, due to the power cable being pinched between the helmet layers resulting in damage to the cable. Some spare wire, and 5 minutes with the soldering iron, and better than new!
Next is installation of the T-Rex engine, and panier guards. I was thinking of painting them to match the bike, but kind of like the contrast of the black guards, against the silver. So they're going on. I can always paint them later if I chose to. I'll post some pictures with my next post.
Insurance is active on Friday, May 1st. Then it's off to the races! (Don't tell my insurance agent I said that)!
