If it were me, I'd order another OE bulb. I don't know that it would cause any issues, but there's going to be a large voltage differential between the "regular" bulb, and the LED. I always replace bulbs in pairs anyway.

I honestly didn't even consider that. I did ride the bike yesterday, without issue. Notwithstanding, the OEM bulb wasn't inexpensive. I think in the future I'll look for cheaper aftermarket halogen replacements.

Nice solid base. Are the slots the anchor points, or for the straps to pass through to the anchor points?

Oil and filter changed today. 3500 miles on the old oil motul 7100 going back in. Just starting to lose its bright red colour and no nasty signs of metal filings etc. changed the final drive oil too. Bit more grey this time. Replaced with Motul HD 80/90 this time. Bit of muck stuck to the magnet too.

I put on a T Rex skid plate about a month ago and the sounds that resonate from down there sounded like a B-17 taking flak over Berlin. So I took off the plate and insulated it with some Kilmatt sound damping material. it really makes a huge difference. The picture does not show the finished product. Also I drilled some holes in the front for some air flow. Much better and tomorrow we ride!

I wouldn’t worry about a skid plate blocking air to the engine. After all most engines sit directly behind a hot radiator and do just fine.

I did the same, used 1" wide foam tape. Same stuff you'd use on a truck cap, between it and the bed.

My 640 was brutal for reflected noise, had a roll of this stuff lying around and.... bikes and years later, I still do it to every bike. Cheap and easy.

Oil and filter, Air filter and new iridium plugs. I just changed over to Motul 7100 10-40 removing Castrol 10-40 full synthetic after about 5000 miles. Maybe it's just my hearing, but it seems to be quieter just idling. I was running Amsoil before the Castrol. Found the Motul on special, less than either Amsoil or the Castrol. The rear diff was changed about 2000 miles ago when I did the swing arm/steering head/fork service.

Speaking of Mefo tires, I have a set of used Mefo's (1600 miles) that didn't work for me that I would let go real cheap If someone is interested in picking them up in the Denver area.
