Motocrash,
What flap is that hanging off the tail?
In Thailand, we are not allowed to have footpegs without rubber on road bikes.
Luckily we also do not have the reflectors you have there and we have the sooooo much nicer LED turn indicators.
The stickers were the first thing I had removed at the dealer before collecting the bike, ALL of them.

Picked up the bike tuesday. So far I've....

Removed all the stickers from the frame and all of the little square easter-egg inspection stickers all over the bike.
Removed the stickers from the back of the tank, including the little "390 duke" (I know what I'm riding).
Removed all the reflectors, cut the plate bracket, and tossed the flap hanging down from the tail.
Ordered some racing type foot pegs to replace the rubber stockers.
Ordered paddock stand bobbins.

Next up: Grips, levers, tail tidy.

On our bikes there are goofy reflectors next to the plate and a soft plastic appendage hanging down with another reflector. Thankfully, the de-reflector surgery is very simple. The ones on the forks are held on with double sided tape (just pull them off), and the others need little more than a screwdriver. The plate bracket has tabs that I cut off with a hack saw. I normally don't do much to the tail before plugging in a tidy, but it was just too fugly.

I have recovered and reshaped the foam in my seats, today I'll see if it works ok, the reason I did it is because I find the standard seat tips me forward and I slide into the seat when braking, I have also fitted front and rear fenda extenda's for wet day protection (a little anyway)

Got some poly coolant pipes, these are all slightly long and have to trimmed a little to fit. All in all I was impressed. The bends all seem to be 99% where they should, the poly was a lot thick than expected and fitment was good.

Deep cleaned both wheels... Well, sort of. The front wheel will have a second round. Turns out sintered pads dust is way trickier to remove. Any suggestions?

Hello all,

First, thank you all for trying to help

But, since we are going a bit off topic (my fault in first place) I've decided to continue this matter on the following thread:


Cheers
