THATS SHUCKS MAN, your bike got stolen !!!! THIS IS also one Of my biggest Fear. especially when i go to work. FUCK !!! man so many Irresposible FUCKER that steal bikes. it's not like everyone get who buy bike with cash upfront, Like me i have to do 0 downpayment, and Finance it, i have to work hard DAy and night for my bikes, and yet SOME ASSHOLES wants to steal it. really pisses me off, i wish there are laws saying that Stealing will be punished by Death sentence, or chop their hands off
be careful when buying parts. Look up installation manuals just make sure it fits your bike. I have rearsets and levers on my bike. The levers were from an 06. The rearsets were suppose to be for 06-08. The rear sets i have have are pp tuning and there is a bracket to relocate the brake reservoir, but the bracket works with the 06 brake reservoir which is attacted to the subframe, the 08 reservoir isn't attached to the subframe so the bracked turned out to be too short. Also on hte shifter side the rod didn't fit through the fairing, turns out that was a little different i had to some dremel. The good thing is that i contacted pp tuning about this and they are sending me updated parts. Basically they updated the parts but haven't updated their website or suppliers. So i would be very mindfull of this when buying 06-07 parts that state they are for 06-08.
I also i couldn't find a good "no cut" option for the 08. I actually bought some for 06-08 and guess what....the don't fit. Once again 06-07 is just enough different than 08 so that the 06-07 no cuts don't fit. So i just went with wood craft cuts. I only cut the left side. I probably should have cut the right side cause it rubs a little, but i figure where it rubs it will scratch the paint but i could cut it also which is the same kind of disfigurement. Also if i go doits not like its gonna crack it, its just nug. Anyway thats my take
Also does anyone know if 06-08 use the same shocks mounting? I wnat to get an ohlins shock but the only used ones are from an 06 or 07.
COngrats on the new bike... I am also interested in the frame sliders. I bought a pair of no-cut sliders on ebay and thye just look like they will cause more problems if I drop the bike then using sliders without little aluminum brackets... I started buying mods before I even reached 200 miles and y can see my sig below for a list.
Get some pics up when you can, I already got a few floating around but can post them up again if requested.

Well I got some mods on the bike (currently @ 300 miles)
Rear peg signal mod (powder coated black), puig double bubble light smoked screen, AVS gold short levers, flushed front signals, stomp grip tank pads, HID kit (I still have to install, I want a 3000K bulb but I have both 6000K).
