I just route my plain vent line down the left side of the bike by the oil tank. I think stock connected to something on the right (that fell off when doing the de-smog/de-sas). Can't say I've ever...

The bike was dropped on the left side, but it's not clear if it was moving or not. Damage was minimal (turn signals, scratched tank). I thought that was obscenely low mileage to just let the bike sit...

Don't give up on the Rick Mayer seat. I have one on my SMR and had another on a DRZ I used to own. No complaints about the seat. I have a Seat Concepts on my 530 and it does the job for cheap.

17/19" tubeless spoke wheels and a skid plate would get you pretty close. Not sure if a 19" front wheel would clear everything (oil tank, etc) if you bottomed out the forks.
