Dont forget

Barsliders - saves clutch and brake levers

......................................

questions:

Is there any purpose for fender eliminator besides the way it looks?

Do any of you know of any good windscreens that deflect the wind better than the stock screen? I heard double bubbles work good.

Fender eliminators are pretty much only cosmetic, but in my opinion they are almost a necessity. I just don't like the factory fender.

I've also heard double bubbles are good for wind deflection.

With screens, just check the fit. I've heard quite a few don't fit as well as the original.

If you want to see the Pivot Kit installed, check out my product review in the Product Review Section (oddly enough!). I have a link to the picture of my pivot kit on my bike.

I'm gonna take a picture of it tonight with the LED's lighting up the R6 emblem. Haven't seen it myself yet! Maybe some pictures of these really sweet stickers I got for my bike!
