    Very nice, is you tank de-badged?

    I would not buy the honda oil or filters, Honda contracts both out so they are nothing special. Many use purolator 1, walmart brand (my favorite) or other filters. As for oil you just need to get the NON energy conserving oil, or sysnthetic (Rotella, Amsal etc) you will save $ and not effect the bike at all.

    Very Nice.

    I'd change out the rear end oil as well at some point of this period of break in.
    Do when set up for it, at end of hard ride to get fluid as warm as possible.
    Never done cold, as trash will settle out and stay behind.

    I can show image of end result filtered thru coffee filter, and no reason to keep regrinding normal wear trash.
    I also added extra high power magnet to boost the drain bolt to capture any metal.
    There is one on end of bolt inside, so make sure it gets wiped clean.
    If the plug gets wiped off regularly, and oil is clean, the bearings will only last longer.

    Rear ends regardless machine gets the same treatment.

    Doug,

    His and others who have the N model came without the tank emblems in raised plastic....they are decals underneath the clearcoat so same image, just more subtle.


    I'm not going gray, I'm going chrome

    The only factory emblems on my 07 are the small ones on the side covers.
    No decals anywhere. Just the pin striping down the center of tank & fenders.

    All I have is the tribal design on the rear fender, tank, and front fender. I do not have the 1800 logo on my tank at all.

    Also got some Kuryakyn highway pegs that mount to the bottom of the floorboards.

    Yes it was.
    The 2013's were rolling in so I got my 2012 as a leftover. They gave me $10,300 for my 1800n and dropped the retail on the SG to $19,000. Threw in the cruise control package, 4 point quick detach hardware, sissy bar, 1000 mile and 5000 mile service is included, and let my wife pick out $500 worth of clothes.

    I had to jump...
