Finally Farkled Featherweight

I finally got my bike back from the awesome mechanics here in Silver Spring, MD. They did a lovely job at putting on all the goodies I got for my V and making it into a bike I've been loving for the past 3k miles. Here's my list of mods that have been applied thus far and more to come. I went from luke


Motowerk Lowering Link + Kickstand insert + Slide triple tree - steering is quicker now (but I'd attribute ~80% of that to better tires). Importantly, I can flatfoot now! I could only touch 1 foot before. (5'8" 32 inseam). *NOW* it's a proper city bike.
Motowerk Lowered footpegs + lower brake pedal
Vstream Windscreen + plastic sheet mod to maybe prevent melted dashboard
ROX 2" bar risers
Oxford touring heated grips - simplest way to extend the riding season and excellent in the summer evenings
Crampbuster - best touring mod byfar
Boosterplug - noticeable improvement at lower RPM's (2-3k rpm is now useable)

T-Rex Crash bars with sliders + Fork sliders

RK 114link XR ring chain (gold)

Michelin Road 5 -160/60 120/70 - favorite addition to the bike thus far. The V now feels like a featherweight and is more flickable than my 100lbs lighter KTM390. I now really enjoy this bike




my OEM chain had 4 or 5 frozen links at 10k miles
my valves were in spec at 10k
