Ok, so it was more like drilling than poking, but what a great way to spend the evening, making holes in the new bike. Here's one...
Now that's a hole!
R and G sliders. Once again I have much admiration for Stacy and others like her who can post detailed photos and instructions on their modifications. I just don't have the patience for documentation. We used the instructions as a guide, but according to information we found online, you don't have to remove the fairing to install these. Of the several types of sliders we looked at the R and G's sounded like the easiest to install, and we liked how they looked.
Sorry, I don't have a better pic of the windscreen yet. I added a Puig windscreen to the Ninja. Fugly, but it works. I was taking a beating with the stock windscreen and the wind fairly screamed. I still have wind noise (and a little whistle), but it's at a tolerable level now. I'm hoping that I'll stay a little warmer too, time will tell. I'm still looking for the perfect ear plugs. Apparently I have weird ears.
