It looks like you have a different windshield. Can't tell which one from the photo.

Did the seller provide the exchanged original parts?

It might be nice having a spare fender or muffler. Since the dealer has them, you might want them. Those are both items that can be damaged easily. Also, it might be nice having the original windshield, since it's also a vulnerable piece and might be more suited to your riding.

I'd consider having the dealer set up the suspension sag while you're sitting on the bike in the service shop. Someone here posted a phone app from Ohlins with procedures to do that.

Many here are happy with changing to 14t countershaft sprocket. It won't run with your blade but help considerably to keep it in the powerband. For the rest, neutral in pretty notchy, the clutch is grabby until you cycle it a couple of times and the mirrors are buzzy at best. I think that covers most of it.

Maybe because they knew weíd get rid of it anyway!

I do think youíll be happier with a better exhaust on her.

@Sin Yes, little hard to tell from the pics, but it looks like the optional OEM touring screen. The standard screen is a bit smaller and has lighter tint.

I've changed out the exhaust systems on most of bikes I've owned, but I didn't on the last two - an MV F3 and this SuperSport. Why? In both cases I like the factory look of the exhaust, if not the catalytic converter itself. You'd best believe the factory designers know more about aesthetics than any Aftermarket exhaust maker and I prefer that appearance. Don't like the converter look? Add a bellypan to cover it up. The only reason I'd like another exhaust is for the weight savings, as it adds little/no power, but it's not worth the $3000 bill for the Akrapovic mid-mount system to me. If you like it, go for it.

Agree the stock exhaust is better than most, but I really like this look.

I like the look of that exhaust better than the Termi low exit, but I'd be concerned about the noise level. It probably has inserts available to keep it quiet, though.

I run with the baffle in but itís still very loud. Itís somewhat of a downside but along with the RB EVO Iím pretty happy with the package. Found someone who recorded the sound
