^^thanks... here is the newest update... hopkins trailer light converter, and tridon el-12 relay wired in... rear blinkers, reflectors, and half the fender/mudguard are gone... looks 10x better than stock... next I'm going to replace the front blinkers with flush mounts, and then leave it alone for a while because I need some money for the actual payments haha

pics:

5 days ago(only cut some of the fender, no wiring or anything):




2 days ago(cut more of fender, removed reflector, drilled 2 holes to move license plate up, moved blinker spacers to the inside and bolted with washers to make blinkers shorter):




after cutting and wiring last night(cut all of the fender that's under the actual rear compartment, wired the el-12 relay in place of stock one, wired the hopkins trailer light converter so tail lights blink when turns are on and mounted it with double sided tape to inside of rear plastic, removed blinkers of course):

You mean the dealer's frame? I'll be getting one soon, when I get my real plates I think... I don't really care right now, doesn't happen often that I'm being dragged by the bike and have to stare at it haha

Just buy it and don't ask questions

In short: you attach it to the handle so that you can safely apply the brake with it on, meaning it's not attached too high so you would be accelerating when braking... and when you're accelerating, you simply lay your hand on it and push down lightly, instead of gripping the whole handle and twisting... makes it easier, I like it a lot

I actually could care less for the power of the bike now... it's my first bike and I started riding on a daily/regular basis about a month ago... it will come to that eventually, but for now it'lll be mostly aesthetic and functional mods

I think I'll get the PPs for next spring... I'll decide in a couple of months how much/if I'll ride the bike through winter, and if I don't ride it, PPs will come in spring, if I do ride it, I'll look for some better tires for the wet/cold weather
