G'day Fellas, so just wanted to say a quick hello and to say I picked up a brand new 7 only a few days back. I bought it with a full Akropovic Ti system, and am loving it so far. I have had numerous sports/dirt bike over the last 20 years and I have to say this is by far the most fun bike to ride.
Looking forward to pulling bits off it now, let the Garage Build begin! I'll add photos as I go.

Cheers

Tim

Sweet! All these CC's and that Akra system are sure to put a smile on anyone's face. I know a buddy that has a fleet that even Rossi would be impressed by and the XSR impressed him! That ought to say something.

Which parts are you planning to start with?

So I'm really loving the Super 7 look, especially the headlight, rear guard and side panels. I think I'll cut down the standard front fender and do a few other little bits here and there. Gotta leak the money from the 'Minister for War and Finance' slowly though (the wife) so she doesn't see the changes over night! LOL....

Welcome, Tim. Cutting down that front fender is fine if you stick to dry weather riding, not so good in the wet though. Enjoy your farkling!

Welcome to the forums. Definitely can't wait to see how you'll be cutting down the rear fender and if you plan on doing anything to combat the slingback you'll get if you end up in the rain.

So at this stage the cutting of the front fender is only on the drawing board inside my head and in regards to wet weather......unless I'm caught out in it on a ride, this bike wont be seeing a wet road. It's gonna be mostly a weekend cafe coffee sipping, hanging out with the fellas and having the odd blast through the mountains bike. Hahahaha. Riding is the rain is now a luxury I can afford to avoid!

That has been exactly my aim! Welcome!

Unfortunately my first service fell on the only rain day of the week

Following driveshaft/wheel bearing issues on the car i had to ride the wettest week of the past few months as well!
