    Excellent, looking forward to pics. I plan on sending some pics out for my 2019 RS as well. I have a similar list:
    • Evotech tail tidy
    • Evotech rad guards
    • Evotech frame sliders
    • Evotech front and rear axle sliders
    • R&G bar end sliders
    • Rizoma Leggera LEDs
    • Motocomposites carbon tank sides
    • Motocomposites carbon rear light assembly
    No plans on modifying exhaust, let me know how that goes. So far, I'm loving it!

    Nice list sir. How do you find the exhaust note? I’ve only heard mine idle for a brief moment. I’m drilling out the discs because a 5mm hole just can’t be good. I may add bar ends as well. What’s your take on the rear axle sliders? It appears that the non swing arm side doesn’t require a slider, but the other side probably does. Another issue with some rear axle sliders is they don’t have bobbins on both sides to accept a stand, as well as not being able to use the stand that slides into the axle.

    I find the exhaust very nice myself. Some bikes sound anemic without an exhaust modification, but personally I don't see a need for it. I'm curious what you think post drilling. I hear there is a way to retrain the ECU when you do that, but I've not seen it documented in detail. I made the mistake on my last bike and modified the exhaust. After the newness wore off the constant drone of the exhaust aggravated me on longer rides. I like the RS is subtle at low revs and you hear it when you get on it. Perfect for me, but everyone is different, thus the beauty of customization.

    For the rear axle sliders I really like the Evotech, both for function and looks. It's also pretty cheap. It takes literally 2 minutes to install or remove the sliders so whether or not it accepted a stand was inconsequential. I went more for looks since some stands, like the one you're getting, doesn't use the bobbins anyway. You'll have to let me know what you think of that stand as I'm considering getting one myself.

    Thanks for your input I appreciate it. From what I’ve read drilling out the discs has no effect on ECU or low or mid range torque either. It’s supposed to have a deeper grumble at low RPM‘s and at higher rpm’s is unchanged. I will definitely let you know for sure on the exhaust and the stand thanks again.

    Do you have your stand yet? I went ahead and ordered one ahead of your review, fingers crossed it's a good one :)

    Nope, still waiting. You won’t be disappointed, Pitbull stands are top quality. I have one for the Street and it is awesome. With the bike on the stand you can sit on the bike, hell you could jump up and down on it without a worry. Last night I was going to take the chain guard off but couldn’t, as the wheel has to come off and a stand is needed. Did you get the option with both pins? I did.

    Ok, the integrated tail light is on. Went on very easily and works awesome. No more turn signals gives a very clean look as well. Here are a couple of photos and I will try to upload a video if I can.

    yeah, thanks I really like it too. As far as the exhaust goes, it’s just still not quite loud enough :worried:

    Ok, everything but the frame sliders are on. Off to get the right size torques for the install.

    Man, looking good. I need to post some pics of mine now! Love the Rizoma LEDs, they look good!

    Let me know what your tech tells you on the frame sliders. I called the local shop and he said 50 ft-lb so that's what I did.

    Thanks man. :). What is the size of torques bit for the sliders? I thinks it’s a T60. Also what size is the nut behind it? And thanks for the torque setting, I’ll check as well.
