Thumbs up Thanks!

I just signed up, but before I did, all my requests for farkle advice led me here.

Seems like a great forum!

Welcome to the site. My unsolicited farkle advice is install some SW-Motech engine bars and swing arm spools (~$20 - for crash protection and using rear lift stand). They'll pay for themselves and save you a ton of money and grief when you drop or crash the bike. Also you won't miss the kick stand with a cheap real lift stand that uses the spools on the swing arm to lift the bike.

My bike slid on it's side 50ft from 65kph and I only had a bent handle bar and a small amount of rash on one small plastic side panel. The bike probably would have been a write off without them. You can also drop the bike on it's side with no damage when they are installed.
