No worries. I was thinking the same thing. 1500 miles might actually end up being 500...ish. Pretty sure there isn't much to worry about.

yeah, i'm leaning toward 500...it's what i'm used to anyway. altho, honestly, i've already broken almost every one of the break-in guidelines anyway
this thing is really just way too much fun on the highway and the winding roads
not so much fun when it's wet, tho...i fishtailed about a foot to either side in the h3 tunnel yesterday, and was spinning my tires like crazy trying to get up to the garage at the end of the night

Let me guess... H3 tunnel... Windows down... Downshift... Hard on the gas listening to the exhaust...

I have done that on my bike too many times. It's just so tempting.

I'm stock now but haven't given up the dream yet. My (future) track coach thinks the car's voltage isn't great enough to create enough arc to ignite the HIDs.

Ofer is a solid vendor, he is always straight up.

tramtwo posted this on the go
Ofer did a 10 minute bench test before sending to me. But not on a 2013 config. When I installed the lights first, I too tested BEFORE reassembling stuff. But after more rains here the one light started to fog up. And the flicker that started today is just new. It's an odd case that has to be setup to properly negatively test per my video description.

Mud Guards

Does anyone know the part numbers for the ZL1 type mud guards?
Are they for the rear only or the rear and the front?

These are for the rear fenders - they don't make OEM for front.

I got them at partstaxi.com - 61.65 shipped. They were running a sale back in November '12.

There is a DIY for fronts :

Install the rear diffuser then. Those would be the first two mods I'd do (Rockers and ZL1 diffuser)

Nah... The front makes the ZL1. Sides skirts and rear diffuser are too subtle IMO. No one will make a wannabe reference. Most wont notice the rear diffuser.

I'm with you, man. I'm not sure I want the rockers w/o the diffuser. It's like something is missing.

Actually, I'm contemplating clear bra'ing my lower quarters. Thoughts?
