    15T front sprocket: mild improvement in 1st gear useability, 6th still a bit tall for my speeds ( never >120kph)

    42T rear: back to ‘Boldor’ specs. A little busy at 110kph but really good everywhere else

    eBay fuel dongle:NOT Rottweiler but similar. Stopped the glowing header/fan coming on a lot.

    Drilled 3 holes in airbox lid after watching Pirate video: not really any difference

    Leo Vince LV-10: this was only $400 delivered ( to Aus). Looks and sounds good. I know LV’s dyno shows a performance REDUCTION, but I feel with the fuelling changes on closed loop ( see above), it is a lot peppier and quicker to rev. The front will come up under throttle and a tiny tug on the bars. It didnt before ther LV.And I leave TC on.

    eBay $15 bar end mirrors: quite a surprise. I can actually see behind me now! The bike looks heaps better too ( I know, I’m superficial ).

    Removed the ‘number plate’: I thought it looked fugly.It looks heaps better now- like a real stealthy beast!

    I wont be doing anything else as I think it’s pretty well perfect now.Total cost $550 AUD

    How tall are you JP? You find the lowered footpegs make much difference?

    About 6’2″, and yes, they made quite a difference.Brake pedal required no adjustment ( it was much better with the lowered pegs), and the shifter required a little bit. And they look good!

    Cool, I’m the same height. Don’t suppose you could please provide a link to the pegs you bought?

    Nope.Loosen the 10mm lock nuts and rotate the rod.It’s in the manual too.

    -$50 eBay knockoff radiator guard. Perfect fit! https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/HOT-Moto-Radiator-Grille-Guard-Cover-For-Husqvarna-Vitpilen-701-2018-2020-LOGO/262913338197?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    No instructions, so I used the evotech ones.again, pretty self explanatory , the guard  goes behind the plastic cowlings
