Have your exhaust heat shield bolts fallen out yet??
Watch out for rain. They don't like getting wet.

Ah good, I was wondering if those connectors hanging in the breeze were unique to my machine!
One is a charge lead and the other goes I don't know where, but I suspect it is for a diagnostic. Either way I have covered mine with electrical tape to make sure nothing gets shorted out...

Only in my head...

Looks like someone missed the clutch slave bolt on PDI. BIG mistake! Fork seals should not be leaking and probably were weeping when bike was delivered. Looks like dealer blew through delivery and didn't bother making sure things were right. Not so sure i'd go back there.

And no worries on what looks to be like a missing bolt on the radiator hanger. Its just that...a hanger with a grommet that slides over the hollow peg/pin. Nearly every sportbike hangs their front mount rads this way off the frame.

Edit: Someone else will have to comment on exactly where the connectors go to but you can protect them from moisture by putting dielectric grease on the end. Doesn't hurt to go heavy on the stuff.

Nothing missing, only the left hand side cover oil leak, due to the crankcase machining not being quite correct. Silicone RTV fixed that.

Oh, to keep your undertail bolts from backing out just dab a drop or two of red loctite on the threads of the bolt ends that stick past the back side of the well nuts.
Or if using loctite worries you one can use any old silicon RTV adhesive/sealant. Its easy to remove and will keep the bolts from backing out.
