I like it. Keeps most of the wind of my chest, still get air on the shoulders and head. But I didnt want a big bulky windshield.

Looking good. I think real break in isn't until about 5-10k km.

I was some what amazed at one point riding and feeling "I've never really felt the bike has run so well" at around 11,000 to 12,000 KM's. So that real, true break-in process continues as long as you are consistent in the way you drive her and then can have such an epiphany yourself. I think I'm at 22,000+ now? But you really become a major part of the containing machine shop process as you rack on the miles or Km's.

It would be interesting to hear from some of the early adapter efi guys (2014 and up) to see if they are starting to feel a good break-in/run-in difference yet since its basically the same engine with the efi slapped-on. I would think it would be the same. Ya just gotta get there.
Who has the most efi bike milage?

Great photos. Rig looks right at home in the first photo. The final drive uses do little oil it isn't a bad thing to change it out every oil change too.
