The following parts were ordered for Do- It-Yourself Installation: Windshield-plastic only-DONE ($137); New chrome cover for the brake reservoir...DONE ($17)they sent me two of them; Engine guard waiting for installation ($137). Ordered from South Seattle Yamaha and was overall very impressed. Parts were discounted about 20-25% and ordered on Monday arrived 100% complete on Friday! Can't beat that.
Thumb took the biggest hit and it's back to about 80-85% operating capability.
LAST AND FINAL ITEM ON THE REPAIR AND UPGRADE
The engine guard is installed, and the final item: the upgrade to the Tall Sissy Bar is installed as well. Turns out all it took was removing 4 bolts and out popped the old one and in slid the new one. There is barely enough room to get at the bolts but a member on Road Star Riders gave me a detailed answer on how to do it. Took less than 45 minutes and everything was back to better than before.
