A good suspension setting is definitely at the top of the list for mods. I'm going to have to count the clicks to see where Barry set me at but it will keep getting adjusted as the project goes along. Great to. Have a baseline though.

Ryfly you're braver than me. I remove the side fairings first so I don't scratch them while doing the nose fairing.

I never took up the offer to fit to my 2012. Riding with leather or with draggin jeans with 100% kevlar lining the heat has never been a problem for me.

I may remove them when installing the nose fairing. Since the nose slides inside the side fairings, it didn't touch the outsides.

I had 12 Pani When they didn't come with the covers. It wasnt too bad but you do notice the heat.

I ride my R on track now and I am pretty sure I won't feel the difference of heat with leather.

I was more concern with keeping engine cooler. Pani don't like heat. I have to believe that without covers off, heat will dissipate faster.

The only reason the later Panigale have those ugly plastic engine covers is because you guys in the US like to ride around in shorts and got your legs burnt I leave them on there as they seem like a free bit of crash protection but it definitely looks sexier without them.

This is true.

As far as crash protection, if those cover protected that area...your bike is Fooked and nothing is left. Lol
