    Rub it in with that tail cowl.... just keep rubbing it in.....

    Bike looks good.. I keep going back and forth on a tire hugger... I like them in flat black much more than the "carbon"

    Welcome and congrats on the bike!. You can spray paint those levers easily too! Also, I have yet to have anyone answer me why, or if an R6 header works any better than than your stock header with cat cut off, a small coupler welder on so a slip on will fit. That's what I did. You can read my post on it. R6 headers need to be bent a little and one one the pipes smashed in a bit to clear the pan.

    I did a lot of things top my 2012, that I bought in the past 3-4 months and documented here. Some you might be interested in. An LED headlight bulb is the best $25 you'll ever spend on your bike. Enjoy it and the forum!

    hadn't had my coffee yet and didn't realize this was an old post

    ...but it has blue levers... :-) LOL.... Bike looks great Tex!

    The tail cowl is like a unicorn part for these bikes it seems! I love the tire hugger. I would have got the black, but got my fake CF one off E-bay from a guy that bought mine by mistake and it didn't fit his bike. Price was too good to pass up. At first the Hydro Dip, or however Puig does it looked really fake, but then I got used to it. Nobody gets their eyes so close that it looks all that bad. Being a Raven there is a lot of black on my bike to start with. Besides it gave me an excuse to buy real CF sliders and bar ends. Too bad the bar ends made my bars buzz on the highway so bad I went back to the stockers. The Yamaha engineers got that stock part right, even though they are ugly!

    My son just paid $200 for a tail cowl on his 2000 SV 650. Another unicorn piece that's nearly impossible to find. What is it with tail cowls?

    Another worthwhile mod is SS brake lines. The difference is night and day from the stock lines...even for just commuting. Rode to work this morning. It was 36 degrees. If it's not raining just bundle up and ride!

    Is this an expensive mod? I have to get new tires soon so the bike will be going to the shop for that and I could get them installed at the same time if the parts and labor doesn't cost too much.

    It is probably the most cost effective mod you can do. Under 200.00 as long as you have a socket/ wrench set already. Its really not bad at all. I had never done any maintenance to brakes other than change them on a car a couple times, and I had the lines changed, new fluid in, and everything buttoned back up in probably less than an hour, and that was taking my time.

    Ron got some custom length lines made from Galfer since he's got raised bars. It looks like yours is lowered with Clip ons? I have the same setup. I just ordered mine from Revzilla and the Pre-cut lengths were fine. In all honesty, I could probably stand to have about an inch shorter. Galfers are a two-line set up on the front, so yours won't "piggy back" from one caliper, then over to the other. the pressure is independent in each line to its respective caliper. Its a simple mod that you can do with no issues. the ONLY thing is you may have to "chase" an air bubble out of the line, but you'll be able to do that no problem. Just watch a couple youtube vids on flushing the lines and changing fluid. You'll be good to go. And if you have any issues, Give one of us a call. We'll walk you through it over the phone. Sometimes you need 3 hands to do it lol

    Seriously, This is a fantastic mod. Even if you only do the front for now, then do the back later, dooo iiiitttttt!!! It makes the bike so much safer/ consistent. Especially with you being out in TX, you wont have to worry about those rubber lines swelling in the heat and giving you an inconsistent feedback as the fluid then heats up.

    ETA - I just checked over my old RZ orders and the current cost online for the same bleed kit i bought:

    Front line: 89.95
    Rear Line: 48.55
    AAP one man bleed kit: 34.99
    Total: 173.49 + cost of Brake fluid(I just used Valvoline Dot3/4 - Seen a few guys use it for track days with no problem)


    2ETA - What tires are you going with?

    If you are not in a hurry for your SS lines, wait for a "buy the front, get the rear for free" sale. Galfer and places like MotoSport and Cycle Gear just had that sale a week or two ago. It will come around again. I got triple black (+$20), both front and rear delivered for $119.40

    Pretty happy with that. As MrFrzZ knows, I also got a really nice free tee shirt! Hahahahaha MrFrzZ, that was rubbing it in a bit, ehh?

    I am installing tomorrow. Can't wait! Very appreciative of the advice I got on this forum to do SS lines and other mods.
