Deano's 1200S

OK, been busy doing the bling and just had the 1st service done.

There will be some who think it's too much, don't really care

Full Termis system, Rizoma bars, mirrors, end weights, 'Next' tanks, bunch of carbon, tail tidy.

Waiting on Rizoma to make their 'Lux" grips for the ride-by-wire, and a 43 rear sprocket from the Diavel. Also gotta figure how to fit a steering damper with the bar risers. I don't think the Ducati one (when it comes in Nov) will go on.

Looks great. Thats an ass load of carbon fiber man. Looks awesome.

Info in bars (higher)? And screen (fit how you like)?

Like the gold rad guard also (makes me want the silver one to match my std silver forks)

The higher bars are great. Just takes that weight off the wrists at town speeds. Also makes me feel not as cramped on the bike.

The screen is just for show, doesn't do anything useful, and a real pain to fit. Fiddly as, you need a few hours and LOTS of patience. Almost as if the guy who designed it got the measurements off a photo and figured, close enough. And the guy who made the perspex didn't talk to the guy who made the bracket. Mortal enemies as far as I know. It also just covers the top of the dash, doesn't obstruct any of the tacho in Touring mode, but right on the top of it. Don't know about the other instrument panel mode displays.

Really not well thought out at all, but hey, it's Italian and it's all about the looks.

I have just finished putting a 4mm rubber spacer under the top 2 bolts between the perspex and the bracket to push the top further out. Gotta be better, but I don't know how much yet. Why 4mm; that's the thickness of a couple of rubber spacers I had lying around.

I have the screen. IMHO, it actually does quite a bit to block wind from my torso. That bike looks great.

I have the same windscreen and really couldn't get it adjusted perfect. It was misaligned on the right side. You couldn't tell unless you were on the bike. I took it off in 30 mins. My fitting was horrible and my me think this was like buying a eBay knock offproduct.

Beautiful, how do you like the windscreen? How is the vibration on the mirrors?

I had the dealer install mine. There are 2 sets of allen screws that can cause what you're seeing though. The dealer got it all on straight but then I took the whole headlight assembly apart to install LED signals, and I got it crooked to begin with. It took me another hour or so of messing with it to get it straight again.

You aren't the first person I've talked to that said it was a pain to install and didn't fit very well, but since I didn't do the initial install I didn't have to mess with that part.
