Any pictures / comments on installation?

Install was super easy. Just unscrewed the factory bar ends, and install the rhino ones. The arrow mirrors were a little tight to fit in the groves in the bar ends, but just a little bit of force, they went right in and work great now. I don't have any pictures at the moment, but i can take a few and post some up for people to see.

It was the other day, but I decreased and relubed the chain with a dry wax. Also fitted Rizoma Tomok mirrors, to try and resolve the vibration issue.

As my S1000R is not here until 1st July I am just amassing parts for it for when it arrives. Latest purchase is a slip on Akra pipe  :062:

Nice option but brake reservoir on the right needs a bolt though.

They are threaded so hold the reservoir in place. They could be a tad longer, but reservoirs don't weigh a lot and I've never had any problems.

Fitted a Supersprox rear sprocket just for looks :001:

Most of my life, I drank whiskey, rode bikes, and chased women..........the rest of it I just wasted.
