What do you mean? As far as I know it is the stock part.

Thank you for the kind offer truckdude, looks like MNTHRUX has already completed the project on a 2013 MY.

Looks great MNTHRUX, I know where I'm headed this weekend! Is that the stock finish on the cups? It looks like a brushed finish here, I really like it!

Well done guys, I love this forum!!!

That's the stock finish of the cups I got. They look a little more polished in person then the pic. I do plan on taking a scotch-brite pad to them for more of a brushed aluminum look.

I didn't get to the store last weekend, hoping to this weekend. I have a few things to do to the bike and I'd like to do them at the same time... replace a defective signal, remove the AI system, swap the OE headlamp with a Cibie model and eventually replace the stock gauge bracket and headlight ears.

I'll be sure to post pics when complete!

Blown bulb in the speedo

I see I have a blown blub in my speedo, what sort of job is it to replace the blub.
