    Installed Renthal Ultra Low Bars, Fenrir bar-end Mirrors, Progrip grips, and an aftermarket windscreen. They don't sell the windscreen in red-and black so I used some spare vinyl wrap to see how I liked it before committing to paint. Am pretty happy with the results. The bars are a bit lower but also angle back more. I think they're more comfortable than the factory bars because the wrist angle is better (for me anyway).

    Won't be able to work on the bike this weekend so I spent some extra time on it over the last few days.  Swapped the 2020+ lower fairing brackets for the 2016-2019 ones so I could test mount the belly pan. The new brackets worked great but the breadbox is still in the way. The fix is to get different exhaust headers before installing the pan. On the plus side, I'm pretty happy with how it looks.

    What belly pan is that?

    It's not marked with any brand name. I got it on eBay a few months ago - will see if I can find the listing.

    The color matched, two-tone windscreen looks great!

    Pulled a roofing nail from my rear tire and got some Road 6s to replace the old Pilot Power 5s.
