So a few hours of work and the shift lever is fixed and the lower fairing is swapped out. The flush mount signals did not fit, guy sold me wrong kind, so I think I'll keep the stock ones for now and put my money towards other things.
Interestingly, the fairing comes as just a piece of plastic. No decal, no heat foam, nothing. So I had to remove those things from the old plastic. Still deciding on what to do for the "Ninja" decal though, maybe heatgun it off...
Also, when taking apart the lower fairing I found an led strip, LOL. Followed the wires to find that they were just capped off. Previous owner said nothing about LED underglow, so it was interesting surprise. I put some power to the lights to find they are BLUE on a RED bike, and the placement of the strip is directly under the front fairing so it looks dumb not having any other strips, it will be removed, this is not fast & furious.
Hoping to do some cutting on the stock rear fender soon, a DIY fender eliminator so I can save $100+. Going to try different sprocket set up, starting with 15T in front, maybe 44/43 in back. (Need to reduce my R's during highway riding.) And then maybe a yosh slip-on if I decide that I have the money for it.
That should do it for the near future... I will update with pics as I go along and maybe do a guide of the fender eliminate. There are guides out there but I saw none that retain the plate lighting, something I hope to do.
