Nothing to mod for the new battery? Fit right in place of old one? I do notice it seems slow to crank.I installed a new battery yesterday. I went from the Yuasa YTZ12 to the Yuasa YTZ14 and It make quite a difference with cranking. I really think that Yamaha under spec'd the battery for this bike using the YTZ12.
On one hand, I agree. On the other. . . . my YTZ12 is over four years old, and has been killed twice. . . . and still starts the bike every time. . . . albeit on the slow side. My optimate charger is telling me that it's still good. That being said, I also plan to trade up when it finally bites the big one.. . . .

Grounded from flying, everyday I keep going over what else can I do to my bikeD-a-a-a-a-m. . . . not sure that I've ever been that bored before. If that's polished bare metal, you'll want to put some Sharkhide on it. Keeps it shiny.
Sure! Get me a table buffing wheel tho, my arm was about to drop off with all that handpolishingCan you do mine please ?

I don't know the s100. It might be fine. The skid plate is aluminum, so it won't rust. Sharkhide seals it, prevents it from oxidizing, and keeps it shiny. I guess, just Google something similar.. . . . Any alternatives? I was about to just spray some s100 rustproofing . . . .
A friend slid down the highway from well over 60 mph with those Moskos on his Trumph. The bike got totaled but those bags are now on his new Tiger. He loves them.I mounted my Pannier racks that I picked up off this forum a while back. It works, but I don't see how my toolbox is gonna mount just yet. Have to see. At least I can mount my bags, so I'm closer to having if ready for my trip next month!
