Whoa. Hope you are doing well now. Wish you a speedy recovery. Take care mate.

P.S. the bike looks amazing with the new windscreen. The stock pipe is back on too as i can see. Any reason why the Leo Vince was ditched?

Awesome cornering in pic 2. Are you still on the stock IRC's or have you switched to something else?

Beautiful snaps there. Btw, don't you think your knee guards aren't secured properly? They shouldn't be flapping around and leaving your knees uncovered like that. You could try wearing them inside your denims. Correct me if i am wrong.

Looks to me like these are the non-bionic type A* knee guards. They have no strap on the top of the knee guard. Best worn inside denims or pants for added safety so they don't move around.

You got that spot on motormania & Adi - The problem was the wrong choice of jeans on that particular day which wouldn't cover the knee guards if i wore them inside..but i make sure they are inside cause they flap around when outside.

Adi - I'm just 6800 odd km on the odo, so the IRC's are doing just fine

Small update. Got myelf a Keiti Fuel tank pad and finally after using my Leo Vince in "Silent Mode" removed the dB killer. She sounds angry even at idle now and my word does she move. I didn't really think the dB killer would hold back that much performance but apparently it did. Goes much harder now and there is a stronger surge as i shift in the powerband. i'm loving it!

Would you be able to post in a video of the same please?
Is this only a slip on or a complete kit? Sorry if this is a noobie question

The Fuel Tank Pad looks very neat.

The CBR is doing good. No issues (touchwood )

The odo stands at 1,8xx. Mainly because of winters & work. Hope to resurrect it with few rides in coming few months.

Please post more pictures
