I swapped out the lock for the one off my original bag so they are keyed the same again.
The Color Right matched paint came this week so after the wife and I do some shopping I will set out to make the rest of the scratches disappear. It's a good day even if I am missing the I Hop ride ;)

Well today saw an oil change and final drive lube change. If I get ambitious I will get the rear tire changed to a used DUnlop Q3 to match the front and finish out the season. I really like this bike.

Don't jump on me for an oil thread, just interesting.
Changed oil after 5K easy miles, mostly freeway. Note: this oil change I used a Kawasaki oil filter and even after 5k the oil looked much better than my other oil changes and usually would do at 3-4K. The oil still had a slight "golden appearance".  Been using K&N 303s? that I got a deal on long time ago. I use Rotella T6 oil, have on my bikes since 2003. Really noticeable difference in the oil this change. Could the Kawasaki filter be much better?
