Had a busy morning. finally broke down and ordered a Low and Mean radiator chin scoop. Been going back and forth due to their high prices but had a moment of weakness and.....
Kinda like Christmas in my garage, big pile of boxes with more on the way!
Got the mustang seat on. Nice quality and really simple install, pretty much remove 2 bolts and replace front mount. Here's a pic with the solo section.
And here's the full on seat.
The wife will be very pleased with her accommodations and I relaly like the look with just the solo seat so everyone's happy.
Here's the tall quick release backrest. Still waiting for the pad to arrive.
The backrest is nice, but pricey. Not sure why Yamaha didn't use some nice chrome button head screws instead of the plain allens but a trip to the hardware store will rectify that.
Added Soupy's lowering links.
That was a bit of a job as the bottom bolt doesn't clear the frame on removal and the top one doesn't clear the brake reservoir(?). A little finagling and I was able to get everything in though I did have to unbolt the shock. I left the links set were they were on arrival and it looks like about 1.5"-2" lower. Really made a difference if you look at where the back fender sits in relation to the tire. Nice pieces and infinately adjustable. here's a few pics of the lowered bike. Yes that is a snow pile in the background! Was pushing 40 today and I was sorely tempted to take a test ride but the roads are just covered with sand and salt.
