I actually tried the radiator cover but the sides seeem I finished since the rest of the body panels cover the sides of the cover. I am looking into making a mesh radiator guard though.

And yes k75ssb lol

What do you mean? Have you ditched the radiator cover?

I think the meaning is plumbed by translating it like Scottish dialect. It implies that the sides of the radiator cover seem unfinished because they aren't hidden by the side panels, as ah kin it.

Thanks Brickdad!

As I'm still a novice rider, I'm hitting that horn button on accident all the time... but definitely want to be heard.. I'll take that suggestion up and look at combining the two...

It's a fantastic horn.

And yes, I was half typing the last reply on the radiator cover... It looks unfinished with the rest of the fairings removed so I opted not to use it... although I do still have it if you're in need of one.

I'll get a rev post once I take it up in the canyons this weekend, so I don't piss of my neighbourhood.

The horn is probably the only part of the bike that hasn't been hacked.

Novice rider on a bike with modified geometry in the canyons?  Death wish?

You never described how the bike is to ride. It looks cool to me but I wonder about the seating position, and how you might have to be hunched over the way it's set up. Is it comfortable at all?
