As the title says, I was finally able to get out for a short ride today (it was 36 deg at the house), the first since I installed the new rear pulley and the batwing fairing. I have to say the difference in gear ratio with both pulleys swapped was a nice improvement. There was definitely a difference in the low end but the trade off was worth it as is seems much happier at freeway speed. As for the batwing, it was different. I have always ridden naked bike and am used to having to fight the wind. The fairing does a nice job of keeping the wind off the chest, but I think I underestimated the windshield height. Sitting in the garage, I thought the 6.5" spoiler would work, but in all actuality the 9" is probably better equipped for moving the wind over the helmet. I think the the time being I will stick with the shorter shield and maybe swap it out for something taller this summer. Really looking forward to logging some miles this year.
