Re-upholstered seat finished today, 300K's and I am happy, bit of chafing on the inner thighs, but the seat should settle down after 1k or so. If not I will just duck back and have it shaped again.

The seats look great.  👍

I had the same issue with irritation on my inner thighs, I grip the tank with my knees so I had the front section narrowed, it feels great now.

Went back this morning and he adjusted the ride position to the rear for me, and added a bit of height. I am happy now, even done another 350k's to be sure ;)  It was 42 by the bike air temp guage most of the ride and bush fires everywhere in the Border Ranges near home, plus very high wind gusts.

The joys of riding :)

‘Cause, you know, suspension & brakes are the cheap upgrades...  :D 

Sounds like some great stuff you’ve already done!  Trust me here:  High-spec suspension and big-ass brakes will complete the transformation.  Expensive, and worth every penny (my opinion, of course)

I had my 900 GT seat adjusted. A local company put in extra foam to make the seat a bit more flat (now certain parts of my lower body no longer get crushed when doing a lot of stop-and-go type of traffic), They also put in a special gel pad at the middle/back part of the seat. They use soft, medical gel pads. I took it for a short ride and I think it is a big improvement. I'm sitting a bit higher as well, so now my knees are even a bit more relaxed.

I tried the Yamaha comfort seat at the dealer but felt it was not very comfortable at all. The gel parts are way too hard and in fact, I found it less comfy than the OEM seat.

Also, I installed the SW-Motech crash bars today. I think they are a very nice addition to an already beautiful bike.

One question though, has anybody removed the SW-Motech logo plate that are glued to the bars? I really don't like them but I'm afraid if I remove them it will leave a mark.

 Try using a heat gun to take off the logo's.

It sounds more as if you have many farkles with a bike attached as an enhancement!🙄

Heat gun and a plastic razor.  They're awesome for removing anything glued on without damaging the surface.

It was a slow day maintenance-wise, the only thing I accomplished was lubing the clutch and throttle cables.

Huh that's a neat looking applicator.  I should look into that; I think I've lubricated my cables differently every time I've done it for the past 25 years, may as well try something else new!

Mounted this beauty. Brembo Corsa Corta master cylinder. Found the mirror perch that was missing @betoney from the original and it all came together really nice. Reporting on this will be difficult. “Winter is Here”.  Sitting on my new “Bagster” @wordsmith on the center stand in cold garage, brakes feel great.  Seat feels even better. @texscottyd ride safe tomorrow. It’s only 41 here in NY.

@coachluciano - Looks nice, I'm sure the brakes will feel fantastic. 

I wouldn't be able co contain myself, I'd bundle up and go out for a test ride!

You've convinced me to pull my R1 master cylinder out of the drawer and get it installed.
