    To bad you can't buy just one side and I agree wholeheartedly. The Sato shifter is the most direct, short of the GP shifter I have squirreled away, that I have ever had.

    Thank you, I was just admiring your rear pulley with the bright face aluminum edge.
    Show up on time, do your best and don't grumble about the outcome.

    The outer edge of the rear pulley is just a bright silver powder .

    A small update on my build.


    My Corbin leather seat arrived on Saturday and I got around to installing it on Sunday.



    Packed very well.



    Looks pretty sharp to me.



    The hardware for the installation.



    First a look at the OEM stock seat.



    Because of the Free Spirits solo tail there's very little room to squeeze the seat onto the bike so i have to remove the tank skin and take the bolts off the tank so I can fish it around a bit.



    And here she is installed. I haven't had a chance to ride it with the new seat but I will post up my thoughts after I've spend a few hours in the saddle. (pun intended)









    Thanks for reading.

    I should mention that I had Corbin "nose" the front of the seat. If you look at the view looking down on it, you can see where they tapered it a tad as the OEM seat was digging a little into my thighs.

    Virginian,

    I think I may have been the first to install the TM Rearsets - some tips for you:

    1. You will have to trim the pulley cover slightly to keep it from touching:

    TM 1.jpg

    2. They mount a little wider than necessary - I trimmed about 3/8" from the mounting bolts/spacers and was able to bring them in - depends on clearance with the Termi pipe (which I also have)

    TM 3.jpg

    3. I couldn't get the brake lever adjusted down far enough to my liking - finally ordered a second one ($80) and had the rear tab cut and re-welded to lower the adjustment, a PITA.

    TM 2.jpg

    4. Finally, the only disappointment with these are that TM uses a very thin nylon bushing for the brake/shifter pivot points, and they don't sell them separately so be careful with those, maybe lubricate with appropriate stuff

    Good Luck...
