Great stuff!

Enjoy fitting the new parts, I expect feedback especially about the improvement in brake performance

I never saw the need for a steering damper for our bike through the years but a nice addition anyway!

Have a look at the rake and trail for an er6 and then compare it to a Panigale .... That’s what I did and I quickly realised I should probably get one as I’ve also lowered the front of the bike so it turns better.
The stock brakes were doing the job but you can always improve so why not add something aesthetically better while I’m at it.

I only had a serious tank slapper just once but it was due to weird road surface undulations (I went to check afterwards because I was like wtf was that?) but it's a nice addition anyway especially since you are tinkering with the bike's geometry.

Rear shock is nearly finished just need some seals and bushes.
Waiting on some other brake components front and rear. Rear disk and front ABS ring.
Going for a 250mm rear disk with Nissin rear caliper from a Versys. The front as I said going with 330mm brembo discs just need that ring. Once the brakes are set up and working I’ll measure and buy the braided lines.
Also bought a bar with some rise in it. The drag bar is nice but I don’t like the visual mass that the z1 riser adds to the front of the bike.
More to come

Wont mention the dramas i had to day but bigger brake rotors installed front and back. Z1 master cylinder installed. All bled and working.
Need to get the back shock on now and its functionally finished. Then i can start on the cosmetic side

Enough difference in brake performance to be worth it?
