I Ride: 1299s Anniversario #160 ; 15R
Track Prep Phase 1

Saturdays plan was to take a morning ride to compare the R to the Anniversario, then strip the fairings to install the clear windscreen, remove the evap canister, and safety wire the exhaust flapper valve and remove its servo.

Unfortunately we witnessed a rider that had been left behind by his group fly off a cliff without his group even missing him. If we hadn't seen this, no one would have known where he was. Bad group riding etiquette that really pisses me off.

So I didn't get home till late and not enough time for the planned work. So what I got done was removal of the bar end mirrors, re-installed factory bar ends, and safety wired the grips. I removed the NRC front signals and replaced them with the DP mirror block offs.
At the rear I removed the NRC turn signals and license plate mounts. I used the DP block off piece that came with the Anniversario to close off the bottom. Unfortunately this was all the time I had available this weekend.

Since I have a spare set of DP rearsets that are missing a couple of parts, my dealer ordered the missing shift rods and brake rod assemblies to complete the kit. This will go on when the parts arrive.

Yeah it's very dark and overfilled. Whatever the factory uses for brake fluid turns black from the exhaust heat it seems. My Anni is doing the same and I'm not a rear brake user.

It's a race weekend so I'll be at the track. Not sure how much time I'll get to work on the bike this weekend.

The electrical connector plugs haven't arrived yet but the Track Tape for the lights did. These are temporary till I decide on the blanking plates or raceglass next.

Can't wait to hear your thoughts after a proper track run!

I've used the track tape and it does look much nicer than any tape. Be careful as it's not as playable as you think and can tear easily. That's was my only complaint with it. It would be better if it was more stretchy.
