New F4 RR. A couple of very minor issues

Not to be starting on the wrong foot as all vehicles can use TLC. My brand new F4 is truly amazing, in every way. Does anyone know where I can get the MV accessories in the U.S. without having to wait forever?

Just thought I share some minor things that I've found while still prepping her for her first ride. 1. the battery charge connector cable under the passenger seat for the battery tender have one side of the connector body defective as the red wire will not stay locked in the connector body. These are GM type water pack connectors used throughout the bike. I fixed it myself using industrial adhesive to lock the pin in. 2. fuel tank fairing left side looser than front. Fixed again with 3M trim tape for a tighter fit. 3. Careful putting that back seat back on as the metal tabs can scratch the fairing paint. Get the seat as parallel to the tail as possible while sliding it towards the back to latch. I put 3M paint protection film behind the driver seat on the fairing to protect. 4. the '14 model doesn't come with tank protector pad so I used paint protection film in that area as well until I come across the F4 tank pad.
I also noticed that there is no top radiator guard and have that on order. I really think it is foolish to have a radiator unprotected behind that sticky front tire. I ordered the COX version.
Bike is beautiful and I'm prepping her for a long healthy life.

Danke Danke. I'll get some picks up as soon as I get her out of the garage and onto some pretty scenery, although I can't think of any scenery prettier than the F4 at the moment :^).
