20 degrees is 20 degrees. No matter where you live. And riding in 40 degrees sucks too. No grip unless it's at least in the 50s, and even then it's sketchy.

I think I'm just gonna go boring with an MT-03 headlight for now

is someone here still making mounts for them?

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

when people said Duke I'd been thinking the more modern split headlight style Duke... but at the price, it's tempting. Too bad turn signal wires are cut vs just unplugged.

look like aftermarket indicators, just bullet connectors on the wires, might even have been hard wired to loom, considering we making frames, swingarms, bodywork etc re-terminating a wire should be easy peasy

The PO already took care of removing extraneous weight!! Have you had the frame checked for straightness and cracks?

If you want more power out of your S1000 you should absolutely look up Brentuning in Milford, MA. They tune sports cars and s1000ís to some insane power numbers. The owner is an absolute brain and super nice guy. Iíve dealt with them on numerous occassions and always been pleased. They may have a seperate acct on ig - brentuning moto

I was gonna get the light and radiator on Saturday but other stuff (buying a van) got in the way so I still haven't ridden it
