I'm hoping that I did good with my research and buying process. The bike has been uncorked and de-smogged, white bothers E2 slip-on, proper jetting, Clarke 4.7G tank(red), fender rack(not sure of brand/model), rear plastic guards powdercoated to match fender rack(I guess these are good for soft saddlebag use too), aftermarket shifter, skid plate and, renthal bars/grips. I honestly won't know for sure until I've ridden it some and put it thru its paces but, one can always hope...

not sure that is powder coat. powder coating(from the best of my knowledge) uses magnetism to help the powder stick to the surface of metal. not that this is important, the important part is you now have one of the best do-it all bikes ever built! they are way fun to continually mod and just have fun with! congrats on your new BIG RED PIG!:applause: :thumbsup:

I guess I didn't describe the guards that I was talking about well. They look similar to saddlebag mounts and cover the rear plastice for protection or to keep soft bags off. The are not flat but, curve to match the body panel contour. These are what are powdercoated...
