I used some extended braided SS brake and clutch lines from Spiegler. I was going to get them from Tabasco but he was having some issues with his supplier at the time.
Hopefully very soon

Went from OEM stock to OEM tall windshield (with extender) and from Anakee 3 to Metzeler Tourance.

I really like those Tourance on the Super Tenere, for me they work very well on the bike and last better that Tourance Next. I found that Next front and the rear in your pic worked particularly well.

I think I'm gonna take off my home-made carbon panels and put the stock plastics back on. Mine look cool and start conversations, but I had an aux light bolt grind a hole in the corner on my ss1k this summer. whatevz. I'll keep them on the shelf or take them to school for the science classes to fiddle with.

I made some backing plates to keep my Nelson Rigg soft bags from wrapping around the Happy Trails luggage rack hard frame. I finished the front and rear edges off with some car door edge guard I had laying around. Before these plates, I was able to clinch the bags down, to where they would not move, but in doing so, I would lose quite a bit of space in the bag. 2 button head bolts on each side that use the same holes for the hard bags, and they are off. I used .040 high strength sheet aluminum. Not too thick, not too thin. The bags feel more solidly mounted now. I run the velcro over straps that go from bag to bag under the passenger seat for some extra security. Looking forward to see how they do next weekend.

Have you tried the screen without the extension? How do you like it? The stocker is just a bit to short for me at 5'10".

Haven’t tried without. I’m 6’3”. Stock with extension was just a bit short for me. Tall (which is 2” taller) with extension is pretty good. The extensions which are a knockoff of the MRA x-creen are about $35 on Amazon, maybe cheaper elsewhere.

New rear tire mounted, got it all put back together and broke in a brand new tire in the rain at night on a 600lb bike lol.

I think you may have pulled your axle too much to the left (shaft side).
Where I have the yellow call-out arrow pointing shows the axle is not flush
with the swing arm indent on top of the pinch bolt. I just had a new rear tire installed
yesterday with a friend and he did the same thing when we put the axle back in and
I immediately noticed it when the bike was on the lift.
If my bike was not tucked away behind my other bike for the week I would go take a pic right now
to better show you but if you really need it for reference I will crawl around tomorrow after work to show you:

Hmm...everything snugged up well, all spacers in place...how would this even be adjusted?

I have the factory service manual and it doesnt call this out...can you elaborate?

Not supposed to be flush! Torque the axle then the pinch bolts. You don't want tension on the swing arm. If yours is flush, I would loosen in all up and do it per the manual.

Just after 54k mile service out for a quick ride earlier I had the oil pressure light come on, I pulled over and the level is fine.

What do you reckon, sensor? engine going to catch fire and explode? ignore and carry on?

Did you do the service yourself? Definitely have the correct amount of oil in? The oil light is oil level low rather than oil pressure warning so all is good. The sight glass is really difficult to use.

If you put an aftermarket “oil pressure warning light” ..... check everything before continuing
