Ordered a replacement rear brake line, because yea...it was too tight as someone stated and broke the banjo bolt off the rear caliper. So I've got a longer line and some other goodies coming next week.
Techspec offered to send me another set of tank pads so I'll give them another try. As most have stated, I too really like the extra grip. I just hope they don't slide off again. I can't say enough good things about their customer service though! Robbie was awesome via email.

A large flat-blade screwdriver stuck diagonally into a 3/8" drive socket worked nicely. I also had to run to the interweb to convert Nm to ft-lbs, since my torque wrench doesn't have a Nm scale.
Out with the old (the two are exactly the same length, just a bad perspective on the photo):
And in with the new:
Next up, the forks. I've also got Motrax turnsignals and dubtec2's FE waiting to go on.
The original Motorcycle Picture Game was lots of fun but I think it's time for a reboot, so let's set the rules straight from the beginning and go get some pictures.

Anyways the bike was dropped on the left side stationary and once I picked it...
