I am right behind you in respect to the exhaust and startup, just plugging away.
All your body fixings look really good, and I hope I do as well on the exhaust.
I think the white is a good color contrast. If you don't want something quite so bright you might consider something more subdued like a Copper or even a shadow color. Love the way your color came out.
Was a great day.....Had a 100km trip in the 40. The Chittering loop has lots of winding roads and hills and valleys ...it's first official finished drive.......The roar of the 8 stack.....how sweet are those trumpets. banging gears at 6200rpm.....I am really happy with the RF , it has a solid feeling on the road and very point and squirt. Next is some upgrades and a Supersprint or track day.
I'm in Perth West Australia
I don't run filters, I just live with the fact the motor will wear out earlier than normal so I can stare at those trumpets in the rear view mirror......the sacrifices we make.....
