Well done @Jon.R . Smart bike. Get a Meerkat X pipe and youíll get the sound from those V&H pipes they should make.

Update your general location in your profile. Motul 7100 and Red Line 15W50 (works with m/c clutches) are better alternatives anyway. Both ester-based. Buy online, eBay, etc...

'09 T-100 Forest Green / New England White, TORs, Intiminators & fork tubes raised 15mm, Chrome Ikon 7610 - SP8 Shocks, Custom Sargent Saddle, OEM Chrome Grab Rail, Conti Road Attack 2 EVO's 110/80VR19 & 150/70VR17, 7" Cibie lens and uprated H4 bulb.

Motul 7100 is excellent. I used BellRay EXS in my Rocket and was surprised at how much smoother it shifted. Iíve heard good things about FUCHS. You canít go wrong with Shell. Pretty much any full synthetic specifically formulated for use with wet clutches would do the job. Personally, I steer away from any brand I havenít heard of or anything that is dirt cheap. Same goes with oil filters. I only use OEM filters. Even K&N have had issues and not worth the cost anyway. If you have to, HiFlo should be an OK fall back.

I tried contacting TTS performance in the UK about purchasing the same fairing but got no response, you may have better luck.

I don't think there is anyone out there with a finished fairing with mounts you can buy.

My fairing is a modified John Cronshaw fairing from Air Tech , however the clip ons are lower than stock.

Are the clip ons the same height as supplied with the OEM fairing?

I tried the low ones with the Triumph kit but I like the taller ones that came on the stocker.

When I put the full fairing I left the taller ones on and just moved them down enough for them to work with the full fairing.
