New tires, brakes and I added the Elite wheels over the winter.
First day to ride and try out the Corbin solo saddle.
Everything turned out great! Enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.Thanks to assistance from @TwoWheelin, we installed the Indian Adaptive Headlight with the splitter that enables the headlight halo and fender headdress to both be illuminated. Next we relocated the air shock valve stem. Finally, we installed the Kuryakyn fender strip brake lights. I'm very happy with the results.

I wouldn't strap the can on the right side. My wife said that her foot and leg get really hot, before I removed the cat.Took a few pics. Having made some comments about the gas can on the RM. And a few other pics.
The gas can looks like it can easily sit on the passenger foot board, and secured with bungees or rok straps. This style can will get almost all the gas out of it with the position of the filling port on the tank. it's just a gallon one I got off Amazon. Or sit it on the passenger seat and strap it in. Possibly on the trunk luggage rack. I could get it good and secure there, too. Looks like a good 4 point set up in the 4 inside corners of the rack for a bungee or rok strap. Got lots of rok straps, they work great! The ones I use that are over the passenger seat, I use to put over my half cover, just to help keep it from flapping so much when it's sitting outside when it's really windy.

Just a front view I had it on while I was downloading some "slow ride" footage from my cameras.

And does anyone know what this is? It was wired up on my Honda. I thought a resistor, but I don't know. I pulled it out when I put all LED signals turn signals with an electronic flasher. Never had any issues with them not flashing with the electronic flasher. No wires or anything to plug in to on the open end opposite the end with the wires coming out of it. Just a shrink wrap around whatever it's wrapped around.

Put this new light on just under the bottom of the trunk. Drilled a hole for the little mounting clamps to hold it in place. So it will be easy to take off if the trunk comes off for anything. It's a red low intensity running light. Then brighter intensity with the brake. And you wire up the flowing turn signals that starts on one end of the bar to the other. In these pics, the left signal is on, and it's flowing from the right to the left. Looks like the one on the saddle bag is just a little slow, but it's on in the other pics, it's not a flowing light. I like how bright it is. It also has a white light that the product description says it's a "reserve" and then "reverse" function. I guess you'd have to wire the white light to a switch or some other way to have it on. I don't imagine the white light can be rear facing. It's quite bright. I am impressed with the brightness of this bar. And like the yellow flow.

Getting that wheel out is not bad, wish you didn't have to remove the pipes to do it. Putting the damn thing back in and getting it aligned is a pita if you are ocd about getting that belt straight!
I have had the cat removed. But after, is the foot and leg so hot? I don't think it would get too hot there to cause any issues. The floorboard should help to shield it against any rising heat. But being in motion should help keep the heat down, too.I wouldn't strap the can on the right side. My wife said that her foot and leg get really hot, before I removed the cat.
Who do you guys get to remove the cats? Does it cause any issues for tag renewals?I have had the cat removed. But after, is the foot and leg so hot?
