This is exactly what I have on my 15, and where I got it from, but they have others, with and without tint. I didn't think I'd like the tint, and I am pleasantly surprised it does a great job, eliminating glare from direct sunlight, allowing you to still watch for Smokey bear creep up on your six.

I think it's safe to say my Pirelli Supercorsa's are sufficiently 'scrubbed-in' after my mountain ride today. :lol:

They look good and are very similar to the Rizoma Reverse Retros and they are a great price as the Arrows were more than £100 each.

To be totally honest, I DON'T DOUBT the mirrors I got from Alchemy possibly were machined in China, and repackaged by Alchemy.

There was absolutely no "made in zzz" anywhere on the packaging material, or the contents. If so, the same ones can be had from China direct, on eBay for less than half of what I paid.

I see that you had the dealer remove the servo, any issues known with this or simply unplug it? I'll be removing mine this week just making sure there aren't any weird complications I don't know about.

When you get the akra tune do you put in a better intake or leave the stock one in?

When you put a new intake, it will suck much more air vs. stock. Akra map won't ever make use of that, because it was created for a stock one.
So, if you put a new intake, add power commander to change AFR and make use of all additional air.

Simply unplugging the servo will throw a light but the bike should still be ride-able. The dealer has the ability to shut off that sensor via their computer on the '17's.

It does come with a performance air filter, but the problem is not in that.

The biggest problem is that the whole stock air intake system is utter shit.

Have a look at attached photos.ImageImage
