No worries my man. One should give his Lady an oil change as often as possible!

Just purchased the scotts stabilizer mounting hardware from scotts themselves (big thanks to Jake for helping me out.) Just got to wait a few days for it to arrive before fitment, now then what else can I buy

Not today, but Sunday: completed the flapper delete, pair removal completed, straightened wiring into front fairing (what a tangled cluster [email protected]#$ from the factory it looks like). The flapper was disabled, and the door was removed, but the actuator was still plumbed up and the servo was still installed. PAIR system was still functioning, so removed the screw that held reed valves in place, used JB weld to plug hose barbs, reinstalled using factory gasket minus reeds, and Removed servo and all plumbing. The bike does not surge at parking lot speeds nearly as bad now, pretty happy! I kinda liked the popping, but don’t miss the little surges that went with it at low rpm. Commentary alert!! Am I the only one that is scared sh&@less of this thing falling over on the side stand. I have seven bikes total, and this one is precariously balanced on the side stand. Worst of the bunch! Man it sits upright, the kickstand is so vertical as to barely make a triangle out of the two wheels and itself, and I honestly cannot park it anywhere other than very nearly perfectly level surfaces. I wish it had a little more angle and stuck out a bit further. I have come out and caught someone sitting on one of my other bikes before. I am terrified some dumba$$ will do that to this one, and lay it over. It seems parts are hard to find to fix if that happened, and my Sato low mounts would be impossible to repair. Just venting, thanks!

Sounds like it's got a lowering link on it.

No lowering link, just a peg leg for a kickstand. It definitely is not lowered. Bought it from a tall guy who left it nearly stock, except for a few minor mods. I love the bike, but the side stand is sketchy.
