    @coltonharris13 link me to the other one so I can delete it. I’m on my phone today so it’s harder to navigate quickly.

    Thanks buddy.

    Lol thanks for not calling me out.

    Today so far I sprayed a few more coats on my undertail. That ugly shiny heat shield sticker that came with exhaust has been bothering the hell out of me. Also while the exhaust is off, i sanded it down and washed it to prep it for paint. Probably gonna let it sit and dry out for a day and hit it with some paint first thing tomorrow morning.

    Post up some pics when you get that can painted. As for me I installed a K&N air filter. For the record, I did have the infamous fitment issue but it was easily overcome by enlarging the top bolt hole (on the filter) a few MM to help everything line up.

    Right now I’m painting my stock exhaust black. Wanted to test the paint out on there first. Didn’t do a whole lot of prep work because I don’t care so much about it. But its turning out good. Gonna throw on and go for a ride. Try and get it nice and hot and see how the paint holds up. If everything goes well ill be painting the yoshi.

    a friend of mine painted the can on his yosh with some high temp grill paint. it held up well and after a few days when he decided he didnt like it he removed the paint with paint stripper and the original finish on the yosh was just as good as before he painted it. keep in mind he didn’t sand or prime his yosh, just painted it. it held up good. my advice is to allow it dry for a few hours before handeling. his pipe ended up having some spots from where the oil on his had transfered to the pipe because he didnt let the paint cure for long enough.

    Finally painted my exhaust!

    Check out my build thread for the pics!

    I let mine dry maybe an hour. I then wrapped it with towels to install so it didnt scrape anything. Put the clamp and took the towels off. Gonna let it sit for a day probably and completely cure.

    So pissed! let my friend practice on my baby (thought it was ok because he practiced on my friends 1000RR and was fine) and goes into 2nd gear while turning and so me and my friend stop him and tell him not to go into gear, brake or give gas while turning. so just as he starts pulling off he gasses it while going into a turn, and he doesn’t know how to lean into a turn of course so he runs into a curb and drops the bike! scratched my engine cover, mirror, plastics a bit and broke my plate holder, bar end, and turning signal.. SMH im so pissed! lucky he didn’t bend the rim!

    I did not ride mine in the rain. So maybe tomorrow I’ll go check out the ROT rally. And Roman that is why no one but me will ever ride my bike.

    I havn’t yet and was on the fence whether i should bother getting money for that or not. i mean he should cover the damages to get the bike in the same shape it was before (almost perfect). Idk a huge flaw in my personality is i can’t be mean to ppl. but I guess i need to put my foot down on this one.

    And that was the last straw. No one is sitting on my bike unless the title is in their name!

    @mactacular ya I know right? and later that same day cop pulled me over and gave me a ticket for having my visor up on my helmet!

    I was rofl with your bike bakuke pic hahaha… did you get the cover yet?

    I put some quick connects on my front blinkers so when I have to remove my fairings I can just unsnap them. Changed my oil and filter. Changed my coolant. And plasti dipped my lower right fairing and when I get my lower left fairing tomorrow I’m gonna plasti dip that one too.

    I fixed the butons on my gauge cluster. I can now set the time and reset my trip counter. Its pretty easy to do but it requires removal of the front cowl to remove. All in all it was time well spent.
    @shawnsay What do you think of that oil? Is it as good as it should be for the price? Also did you remember to burp the system after you changed to coolant?

    @atx600rr yes that oil is awesome. Noticeable increase in power. And yes she is burped. Next is spark plugs and air filter.

    I still need to do my plugs but they are pricey at $60 a set. If I was smarter I would have done them when I had the rad off.
