Can't change the screen in the oil bag because it hits the cat. converter when you try to remove it, so you have to loosen the bolts that hold the bag and tilt it so as to clear the cat. The morrors, will viribrate and come loose in the stalks, and there is no adjustment in the back of the mirrors to take up the loose mirror , like on my H.D. mirrors. But they will give you a new one and , so far, it hasn't come loose. Only one came loose, but it can happen. The seat has little tits to keep it of the frame and to act as a bumper, but they come out and will not give them to you , they want to replace the entire seat, what asses! The tits cost 10 cents, the seat it 700, go figure. I took the tits from a bmw K12rs and made them fit, my dealer gave them to me. Can't read the coolent level, because the bag isn't the right color, and you must add food die to the coolent to make it dark so you can see it in the bag. Must jack up the settings on the front and back to ride it hard, like a sport bike, long range is great for comfort, and I have owned them all, the best sport touring bike on the market, but Yam. is being out the 1300, and Honda missed it with there new 800, not enought power, and a little heavey. No race pipes yet , got to have them custom made, it will suck but will gain 8 or10 hp, and the sould will be worth it. I am buying a R or the new Tuono, as soon as I can. The Tuono I think is going to be great, but only 30 coming to US. Hope this helps, but got to go, will look at this sight again. Thanks for the reply.
