GREEN is god

I don't understand "modernize" by adding color. Maybe more like a "fresh it up". Modernize would be like adding QS or Launch Control.

Anyway, I'd leave it green. its the best color that noone else but Kawasaki is willing to bet on.

I did have to take the plunger fitting (whatever it's called) and machine it out a tiny bit as it was just a hair to small. The cool thing about these levers is the LCTT (lever cushion traction technology) inserts. It comes with 5 different color inserts. I have the black in for now. For $100 I think I'm gonna be really happy with these and the Spider grips I snagged for $10.

Its definitely a awesome color in person. Lots of pics make it look grayish black unless the lighting is good.

So got home Tuesday night and had no water (main line frozen). So called into work and got to work on the bike some more yesterday while my torpedo heater did it's job.

Moved the battery tender hookup to where I wouldn't have to take the seat cowl off to get to it anymore. Snapped a pic of the WPS battery while I was at it. The thing is super small and weighs almost nothing. Got the new seat cowl in and didn't bother messing with the bolts and speed nuts this time. Smothered everything in plastic epoxy and used plastic push rivets to keep the bracket lined up. Good as new!

Back to new stuff!!! Got the R&G race covers (decal removed) that I snagged for $200 and the OES sliders for $48 installed . Put on my new front Vortex sprocket while I was at it and frame plugs I found at Ace Hardware for $1.56 each.

Came across the hot bodies rear hugger on ebay already paint matched from a gen 5. I wouldn't have paid full price for this thing but considering I got it for $66 shipped I think I got a good deal. Used a little bit of 3M tape to help keep the 2 together and did a tiny bit of trimming with a dremel and they fit together perfectly now.

I have one of those huggers, I suggest you get silicone, to put them together....
dont expect them to last long, they will deteriorate fast and start braking.

where did you get the chassis plugs.?
