Picked up 2 other modifications today ..
First was the Kawasaki paddock stand bobbins. Unfortunately I can't use the paddock stand I have as the hangers will touch and scratch the swing arm. Looks like i will be buying a fork end paddock stand next. #-o

Second was a pillion seat cover. Blooming expensive but well worth the look. Fitted clear tape where the cover might touch the tail unit so I think pre-armed is better than finding a chatter scratch .. I think it looks great. :)

After a long chat with David we came to the resolution that the carbon oval GP 380mm end can was far too long and too tall.

So ... I now have 2 tri oval carbon 250mm GP end cans.

I think they look jolly nice too 😃

Even Colin may approve of this change .. ;)

Love the seat cover too.

Proper tidy that Dave, really improves the rear end.

OUt of interest, does it come with a centre stand/you know if its an option?

Just went to J&S in Filton and bought a new Motrax rear paddock stand with V supports. My other one has hanging J supports. Unfortunately these would scratch my swing arm on the first use.

Used them for years FD. Never had a problem till now.

The Motrax paddock stand works well and gives me great clearance.
