Helibar risers, buell pegs, GI Pro, Yosh Slipons, Rick Mayer Seat, ZG ST Shield, powerlet outlet, Ram stem mount Gps mount, Sw Motech plx mounts with givi V35 cases, chaser Harper Tail Bag.  This setup gives me all day comfort with 150 to 200 lbs less weight and 50 more  hp than the luxury sport touring bikes like the ST, FJR, Rt.

Very nice setup!! I really like the balance out back with the dual exhausts. The Concourse exhaust frightens me!

Great setup, and very sharp bike. It looks like Santa came early, or you have been hiding receipts from the spouse!

I used to have the V35s on another bike.  They're great bags.

            motordog, How do you like the Rick Mayer seat? Is it any higher or lower then stock? I bought blue 07 a few weeks back just in time to put it in the garage before the snow hit. I'm hoping to do some sport touring on mine also but want to ride it some before I start changing bars and seat etc. I can't quite flat foot both feet so I don't want to make it any higher, an inch lower would be great. Thanks

Thats the best looking 14 I have seen yet. I have never been crazy about the look of the 14's front but it appears that the ZG touring screen you are using really helps the look of it alot IMO.

Maybe I will have to put the 14 back on the "someday" list after all.

Looks good - I'm still getting mine together. I'm going to go with the Corbin bags instead of the Givi's but man they're expensive. Here's a picture of it so far.

Why would you leave the SW brackets on when they're so super-cool and easy to remove? Thumbsup

Motordog,

I noticed you've got Yosh pipes on there with a centerstand.  Did the Yoshi's midpipe come with the little centerstand bumper bracket, or did you have to have it cut off your stock pipes and rewelded to the Yosh?

I wouldn't mind getting aftermarket cans for mine but I don't want to have to deal with cutting and welding.

not to derail a good thread Smile but as good as the zx14 looks in blue and black, I saw the 08 in silver yesterday.

oh my. Inlove

that color makes it look like the sophisticated gentleman's 186mph transportation.  less blue in it than the silver on the concours14. makes the bike look smaller-which is a good thing- at least to me..

me likey.

gotta save my pennies and maybe sell my old connie..

nice looking bike.  

Get those hard bags color-matched to the rest of the bike and it will look super cool.

I have seen one with the Corbin bags.  They look very nice, but be advised the Corbins have a funky shape inside.  You lose a lot of cargo space.

I bought the 2008 ZX-14 in Atomic Silver. Inlove

Farkles so far include: fender eliminator, heli-bars, Sporttech silver-chrome windshield and the Kawasaki touring windshield, Whistler radar detector, headlight modulator, brakelight modulator and race raillz.

I have a fully farkled up FJR for my touring duties including GPS, satellite radio, ipod, radar detector, GIVI top case, modulators, blah, blah, blah. Bigsmile

I like your cases on your ZX14. I'm not sure about the windshield. Nice pic.

As soon as the weather clears, I'm heading to Rich's for a modified seat like my FJR.
