Isn't riding in general dangerous? :lol:


But seriously, it's bad enough getting my (over-the-boot) pant leg caught on the kick starter (yeah, no e-start for me), I wouldn't wanna get caught in the sprocket.

Well, if you decide to use the black wrap (which is kinda grayish-black), there's a silicone spray you're supposed to use on it to seal it... They sell it in black and it makes the wrap a much darker shade of black...

Here it is on my R1...

I like that pipe with the black wrap, looks great.

As for the chain guard and sprocket cover, I think this is the first bike I have owned that has had a chain guard and a sprocket cover. It's never been a problem in the past 20 years, so I ditched them- I like this look better. Can't wait until I get the FMF and cut the top of the airbox out.

Hollywood33, Are the inserts on your paddock stand backwards? Isn't the long part is supposed to be in front of the spool so your bike is less likely to slip when you let it down? That's how mine are.
