Yup, agree.

If I were to do upgrades, it would be in this order:
- Fat bars and Cycra hand guards.
- There is an oke overseas who builds a carbon fibre skid plate that bolts underneath the existing plastic plate. This sounds like a nice neat option.
- Pipe. Just to liven the mid range up a little. Doesn't look like it gets much more poke with a pipe though.
- I'd need to ride it a bit to determine what love the suspension needed. My fat ass would probably overcome the rear shock.
- Then just a Giant loop or similar.

Good to see some okes getting these bikes now. The market is starting to work as it should and driving the prices down to where they should be. Sorry for the lads who bought at 85k though. You'll just have to make the value up in usage.    :thumleft:

I wanted to remove the side plastic panels as Minkyhead did as I reckon they would damage easily but now having seen them in the flesh you would need to cut them in half to achieve that so not an option. The carbon skid plate sounds like an idea. Will tinker tonight and see how everything comes together on the bike. This guy rambles a lot but he does make some points on spending big bucks on new Honda plastics.

Looks good in this light  8) I see the bike uses a paper filter, what has the consensus been - good enough for dust ? Do you clean it or just buy a new filter from Honda ?

Just remove and clean

Of course it gets replaced @ service time.

You may also want to remove the stainless steel backfire screen from the stock filter to allow better airflow but that is your choice.

And they are low so the weight won't be felt much. Also add protection to a degree for the gear and rear brake pedal.

I decided to go ahead with my procurement. Maybe even get it tomorrow if they can pull their fingers out of their asses.

Looking at a ride tomorrow to test it in the dirt lets see where we end up. Honda gave me a full tank  :biggrin:
Rode home in the dark yesterday, like the white light the LED gives.

Found some HRC stickers that comes with bike in the owners manual. Stuck them on the scoot although this bike is 12 Dakar stages away from a rally bike  :biggrin: Been short shifting it in town to around 5000rpm and it was ok then today giving some stick to 6-7000rpm and must say its really fun more than enough oomph for commuting ! Finished a bottle of Merlot so off to bed, looking forward to a ride tomorrow.
