So today I Mounted the Honda OEM center stand....... took about two hours, but only because I was a little unfamiliar with the layout. used the YouTube help that I found on the site here, tie down strap works perfect if you get it set up right.......This bike should not be without a stand.....It goes up on stand pretty easy, here are the details and what you need

From : https://japan.webike.net
The stand part 08M70MGSJ 10
The accessory center stand stopper 35–2 1–01

The trick:

Glen, bike is looking good. That top screen you put on will likely have to be adjusted. When I put mine on I had to ride a bit and adjust it to the location that suits you. Every one sits different on a bike and it should be able to be adjusted so the wind and bugs go over your helmet and you will still be looking over it. Good luck. Don't know if you have any experience with these so I thought I would but in and give you my experience.

Glen e, looking forward to your input on the Puig setup and what your overall review will be.
Thanks.
I can tell you right now, it made a world of difference. By messing around with it you can get it to go right over your helmet ....very very worthwhile add… I take it off when I’m around town. It’s also light smoke which is no problem to look through.

My bags came today, using camera/instrument pelican cases as I want a thinner bag. Using john’s brackets, i’ll Have $230 in total for this, lockable waterproof, they take a small liner from amzn. These are caseclub.com’s Cc520se bag, no foam included.

Paint protection film:

Applied today, I wear a lot of denim riding pants so this is a must, I’ve used it on my last four or five bikes, once it completely dries in the sun, I would have to show it to you, for you to see it....

From amzn:

Just applied w/ soapy wet technique


Drying and getting clear:


I’ll add a pic here after a day or two in the sun.....

Did you cut the paint protector by hand? I've been wanting to do this since I got the bike. I was hoping somebody would make a kit, but nothing out there yet. How does that 3m stuff look once it's cured?

Yes cut by hand after I made a paper template and drawing on the piece of paper how I wanted it to be , then cleaning it up ,transferring that to a piece of film, and cutting it. Very simple. Don’t be fooled , there are a huge amount of paint films out there that are not invisible. This one is .....that’s why I put the link up there. I’ve been using it for a couple years on other toys of mine and you literally can’t take a picture of it it is so clear a camera will not show it unless you are inches from it. You must be sure that you put it on with a wet application and soap, never touch the adhesive portion of it, use gloves that are already wet so they don’t mark up the film, and the surface has to be absolutely pristine clean with alcohol. Squeegee should have a microfiber edge.

Just finished up wrapping my pelican bags with carbon fiber… waiting for small Honda OEM wing logo for the Moulded square...
