This bike is seriously a ton of fun on dirt roads. I finally took it out on some and the bike is really kind of awesome there. Rear suspension isn’t great, but if you are standing it isn’t a big deal. The bike tracks great and powers out if wobbly parts really, really well. Loads of fun!

Nice hand guards, Dread! Where did you get those?!
They look good! Jevers
Are they like these with the pop out inserts from PowerMadd?
I had a set on the FZ-09. They fit okay after I reversed the mounts (left for right and right for left) to clear the mirror perches, cables & switchgear.
I later treated them to some carbon fiber wrap. Although cutting and sanding off the raised PowerMadd lettering first was a challenge!

Yep, Eddie those are the ones. I took a little different approach to the mounts. The clutch side went on perfectly. The throttle side was a different story. In order to have everything symmetrical, I cut off half of the mirror perch, yep right down the middle. There were just enough threads left to still hold a plastic cap to cover up the infraction. Yeah, I wasn't real fond of the Power Madd letters either. BTW. Did you ever get to use the card? Jevers

If you are game, try shaving the letters off with a heavy carpet knife blade and then lightly sanding with fine grit to the desired finish. Not a wrap fan? Rustoleum Trim and Bumper Black Paint has a nice finish to it.
Re: The card. Not yet! Have had a terrible week with bad weather and dealing with a $$$$ vandalized 2019 Camry belonging to my girlfriend.
