I'm so excited haven't been able to sleep all week so god help me tonight LOL

Here are the mods I have ready for her:

LED rear indicators

Carbon rear hugger

Carbon instrument covers

Carbon heel guards

Carbon injector covers

Carbon key cover

Venture shield stone chip protector (Full)

Metal impeller fans

Rad protector by FAB designs

Tail tidy

I will post pictures as soon as she's complete. Also if there is anyone in the Dorset area who fancies a ride out in the summer would be great to meet up.

Regards

Mate I completely know how you are feeling. I was in Dallas when I bought my bike which was in California. My brother was the middleman running to the dealership every other day and keeping me posted. It was really really tough but it was like something huge to look forward to Congrats on the purchase! Nice list of mods!

Thanks guys, have you made any mod's that have made a difference. I need a de-cat pipe to help gas flow and with the impellers help keep her cool (as I know is a big issue). I see many people have put PC111's but I'm not Rossi and will hardly be able to ride her to it's full protential as it is. How many here have had a prob with the rad splitting/leaking due to vibes?

Safe riding chaps :0)

Congratulations on your purchase and the mods you chose!

Can't wait to see pictures of your new bike. In 2008 I wanted 6 months for a bike. Ordered it July 1st and took delivery Dec 19th! So I surely relate to your impatience and sleepless nights!

Not long to wait now!

I have done the full titanium arrow swap so that got rid of the mid pipe issue for me. Plus the bike sounds a lot better Also I swapped out the coolant to water wetter for example because i have tracked mine a couple of times and noticeably the bike was performing a lot better with the temps. It gets hot still at times but it does not ever get to the point where it is flashing the temps on the display. I am sure that along with your impeller mod will do wonders for you. Oh yeah not to mention the cat or lack thereof will help you keep your bike cooler.

As for other mods, carbon fiber seems to be the way to go. I recently got my carbon gas tank painted. Still have to pick it up though argh.

Good luck with the new toy.
Fitting a Power Commander will help whether you ride it like you stole it or not, makes the fuelling much smoother if mapped properly.

I forgot to mention the MV race ecu. That gets rid of the 5k rpm flat spot and the bike feels a lot better throughout the revs. I think you still need a PC3 on top of it to smoothen out the on-off fuelling
