Just check you have clearance between the cover and the radiator on the LHS cover (the side without the filler cap). With the plastic covers I had the problem of the lugs, plus the mounting arm of the Evotech guard fouled the cover such that the screws would not seat correctly - but only on the LHS.

I’m thinking of changing my tyres, so also thinking about a front paddock stand for wheel removal. Any recommendations? Several stands mention possibly not fitting bikes with radial brakes...
Or do you just stick a plank across the headers and jack it up?
Does anyone know of a good option for passenger pegs to match the HP rider pegs/foot controls (other than just leaving the stock ones on)? Also have the levers and the akra titanium slip-on. Just got the pegs/foot controls in the mail from Bohling, and just wondering if it’ll look goofy once...

The spec will be as follows;

So my question is...
I have been considering something like the WunderLINQ for a while -
However on the one hand have not felt like spending that much (the great Panzermann (I truly mean it) might have a comment on that),
And on the other hand those on eBay for as low as $15 are shipped from China + seem...
