I'm not sure I want leave the exhaust protector on. I'm not sold on the looks and the rearset pegs are fixed and stick out farther than the protector, so maybe it's not necessary.

I've switched some things out from blue to gold because all the gold stuff seems to be the same color and the blue stuff is all over the color chart.

I took off my Rizoma mirrors. Thye work great but I don't like the look. Waiting for someone (SW-Motech or R&G are the best bets) to make mirror spacers for the stock mirrors.

Things ordered, not here yet, include:

Powerbronze Airflow Dark Tint Screen
Brake Master Cylinder Guard
Race Hooks to use as passenger peg mount blanking plates
Pyramid Headlight Covers
Rear Mud Guard
Stripe Kit

Items not yet available to order later:

LUIMOTO seat cover
PUIG Fork Sliders
SW-Motech or R&G Mirror Spacers/Extenders

Dang, Fang, looking good , mang. For fork sliders, I just bought 2 (matching) sets of swingarm spools. A (i think 13 1/2") piece of all-thread and 2 nuts will secure them. The hollow axle makes it easy.

I'm a fan of subtle (rather than overt) bling - the gold fasteners are a nice touch - you don't notice them right away, but they add to the look. Now get rid of that goofy safety ring on the rear sprocket and get some proper brake lines!!

Mr. Spears has some awesome brake lines. They are made to improve your braking power.

I saw those. Great price but they are listed as Recommended for race use only
I bet you could ask him if they would still work for street. He is very smart and does not mind taking the time to answer all your questions! Trust me, I've asked him some dumb stuff and he has never made fun of me.

I think it takes 3-4 weeks. Even though they have a U.S. warehouse, they must not keep stock there.

I'll post a photo once I have it, both before and after I install it so you can see the color clearly

Fang, will you also get some pix showing the height variance and any other changed features (wrap-around at the edges, etc)? Thanx

Hi Fang, where did you get those bolts and what are those rear sliders? Thanks
Here are the bolts (M5s). You'll need 2 sets if you want to do screen AND fairings. I bought black nylon washers at Ace Hardware to replace the translucent white ones that come with these.

Here are the rear sliders

See thread for update

Also, out in the sun it's not really a dark looking tint.

This might be better for you, and it's even cheaper. The first one looks like it's either solid black or a very dark black tint.

Hey Fang! Nice mods so far.

For the Traxxion Shock Sock, what size did you order? '

Also, what made you go with the frame sliders you got compared to Yamaha's frame sliders that they sell on their site?

Thanks!

Shock sock that fits correctly is the 6" one.

I bought a set of the OEM Yamaha frame sliders when I bought the bike. It took almost 3 months to get them from the dealer. Once I had them I decided not to install them.

Problems with them are that they are made from cheap hollow plastic, mount to the fairing ONLY (not to the frame or engine) and don't stick out far enough to do any good.

Thanks Fang!

I ordered the Vegabond Frame Sliders based on the views on the OEM ones.

Too bad too, I liked the look of those OEM sliders, if only it was higher quality/better mounts.

Yes, they do look good on the R3. If they had been made of Delrin, attached to the frame/engine AND stuck out farther (gee, is that all?) I'd have installed them.

You can't go wrong with Vagabond's products!

Cheers!
