Be careful removing the reflectors from the forks....do NOT use anything metal to pry them off unless you want to trash the finish on the tubes. Dribble some solvent, laquier thinner or acetone works well behind the reflector then take a piece of dental floss or mono fishing line and saw through the foam tape. More solvent and some elbow grease will take care of the residual garbage left behind without scratching the tubes.

Progress update

Cleaned

Removed fork reflectors
Removed Air Box (waiting for Air Intake kit)
Removed Crankcase Overflow container and tubes (K&N filter on way)
Removed side panels - I sort of like that look, so I'll run without them for a while.

Installed Oberon Clutch Slave Cylinder
Installed R/R Relocator
Installed PCIII
Installed Carbon Fiber rear chain guard
Put some Sta-bil Marine Ethanol Treatment in the tank - hopefully the bloat will be reduced over time.

Broke rear fuel injector - recommendations / links? Ducati Scottsdale (GoAZ Moto quoted $768.25 for the part, almost had a heart attack - cue TT for the patience recommendation.
Broke Crankcase breather
The plastic on both just sort of crumbled - part of living in AZ.

Pictures attached.

Reflector Removal...

I went with dental floss, but I imagine that fishing line would have been better. Had to use a lot as the floss shredded pretty quickly. Also worked some Goof Off into the stickers with the floss, then when close used a screwdriver wrapped in a cotton rag. Came off with no damage - just a little Goof Off and elbow grease and the forks look great. Thanks bshinn.

BTW it was ~115 in AZ today, so the stickers come off pretty easily - definitely no need for a hair dryer!

Well said! I just closed any work in the Shop. Patio thermometer hit 118 degrees here. 95 in the Shop at 0410 hrs. this morning.

Guess we are paying for the nice July we had huh?

They were $95 for the pair. Any pointers on installation besides using patience 😜

On another note, one of my friends from a soccer team just bought his first moto - a 2010 GSXR600. 125hp. I'm like damn dude, be careful. Crazy IM Not HO.

Pretty much plug & play. The difficult part is getting it all apart, but you found that out already. The nice new soft o-rings should just press in fine. Make sure everything is lined up as is should be and torque it down & move on with your day.
