Thanks fellas!  Yes the tappet covers are Kury's. They look really cool but fit kind of funny on the bike. I might need to do some modifiications so they fit a bit better.

How so?

The left side cover fit fairly well but the right side is tight and doesnt snug down all the way. I think the bottom edge may need to be trimmed or possibly bent a bit outwards. I read reviews online and some complained about fit while others said they fit perfectly. Not sure what could cause this variance. In my experience, Kuryakyn is usually good quality and I would think their QC would catch any flaws in production.

I doubt anyone else but you would notice. Still looks good.

Doubtful I realize, but any chance the difference is something to do with the caliper?

 I was discussing the tappet covers. Caliper covers fit well.

Picked up my front forks from the dealer at noonhour-replaced my fork seals, will be putting them back on tonight.
My dealer sent in the paper work to have it covered by my extended warranty-we will see if Yamaha picks up the tab :praying:

Got the Avon 240 mounted up this afternoon!!! Good thing too because there wasn't much left of the stock 210 after 7,632 miles.

 :congrats: That's something I need to get around to doing too, but I'm waiting until I get my SAC installed. Or, I might not. Aargh, I'm so conflicted!

I got mine from this site....http://www.bikerbrackets.com

Warning: They come as seperate numbers and you have to line them up yourself. A real PITA! But they look cool.
