I slacked off and let this thread go for a while, guess I better catch up... Another mod to start with:
I wasn't happy with the Yamaha alloy sump guard, it left too much of the engine exposed and I was getting a few dings in the cases, + it was getting bent from rocks catching on the slots... It seems it was made for looks not function, glad it came on the bike and I didn't pay for it!
I got a B&B one... it covers a LOT more:
$245 well spent IMO...
