    Default Slowly Starting

    to add some farkles to my F3 now that I have finally sold my ST.
    I have the Akrapovic that fits the RT Triple, it has a nice deep tone, will try to get a video of it.
    Just added the Blade Rims. And I have added the Xcreen Tourer to my Blue Ridge Screen, a big improvement.
    Next is some trials of stripes or designs, I was thinking a Matt Grey GT Stripe
    on the Bonnet and changing the shiney blades on the rims to the same colour.
    Hoping to get this done before my partner and I head to the South Island for 10 days and approx 3000kms
    of touring. And I now have a Cyclops CGX2 Camera ready to mount on the front, so hopefully will get some great
    pics to share.

    Didn't know the Akrapovic for the RT would fit the F3.

    How much modification was required, if any?

    Looks nice BTW.
    Just another crappy day in Paradise....Aloha!

    Thanks, not much at all, just adjust the small heat shield on the muffler close to the frame, just a small bend of the mounting bracket

    Default Blade rims on the F3

    I didn't know the blade rims fit the F3 -- and man they look sharp! my 2015 catalog only lists them for the other Spyders. I guess I'll have to get a 2016 catalog. Did you have to do anything special for the F3?

    Thanks, pretty much if the rims are 15 inch they probably fit the F3. And nothing special at all just fit like any other rim
