Looks good, Nathan! I'll have to come hear how that Leo Vince pipe sounds, mine's a bit too quiet. I'm taking mine to Lindemann Race Suspensions today to get the sag measurements and settings done. I'm planning to start a 12K service on it next week and pull the Fox shocks that came with it and have them rebuilt and set up for me. I guess I need to talk to you and Raffy a bit more about farkeling mine up, too. I think next for me is a Givi top case, and I'll do some lights and such after Christmas.

BTW - do you know how to disable the sidestand kill switch, or where I can get info on how to do it? Not being able to start the thing with the sidestand down is damned annoying!

Nice job Nathan. Leo sure makes a nice pipe. You need to do suspension now. They installed my new Ohlins this week that I had Andy build for me. Can't wait to ride now for sure. If the Ohlins make half as good a difference on the GS as they did on the LT is should be incredible!!!

David, this may be close enough to help you. The F650 has/had the same issue...
