    Love this forum, and all the ideas!  Just picked up a 2018 Vitpilen 401.  Has black fairings, Akropovic slip on and that’s about it.  Plan on turning it into a fire road/light trail machine, but here it is as it sits.  So far have ordered TKC80’s for front and back (that may have been a little overkill), LED indicators front and back, fender eliminator, and cat delete.

    Looks good.  If you are going to hit the fire roads, might want to look into guards for your radiator and engine case.

    Post some pics when you get the tires mounted.

    Nope that was me posting it, I was ready to give up.  Then I changed my mind and making it happen 🙂

    Ordered a Trex skid plate and rad guard, luckily have a buddy in Houston to ship it to me which was WAY cheaper than having company ship to Canada.

    Rear tire “mounted”. Need to add 2 links to chain it looks like so it clears front.  Only have one stand working for bike so tomorrow the front tires gets done.

    Both tires on!  It’s a tight fit, and can’t wait until the fender eliminator shows up.  Ended up getting a 120 chain thinking the stock one was too short, but then had to take 3 links out, so maybe the stock chain would have been fine.
