Modifications

Drivetrain
16/40 sprocket combo for better gear ratio's in town traffic and on highway.
Exterior
Fitted SW Motech quick release luggage racks so I can use either the oem Shad 30Ltr side cases or my Givi E41 (40Ltr) cases on tour. Puig Touring tinted screen. Acerbis All Road handguards. SW Motech rear seat plate = easier to throw my leg over and more storage room underneath with charcoal canister removed.

34Ltr top case is light and slim and carries tyre puncture gear and change of gloves/wet pants etc..... can also swallow a summer jacket with armour when locking up for a coffee stop....
Lighting
H4 headlight, LED brake/tail and indicators F&R + LED cornering lamps standard.
Exhaust
MiVV Suono slip-on with db killer re-installed for normal fuel economy & performance...... runs a bit lean without it at low rpm but sure sounded good.
Suspension
Stock WP dynamic damping, with gen 2 software upgrade.
Wheel and Tire
Michelin Road 5
