Finally have all the bits to get this build started .

Pulled the suspenders and they are off to George to do his magic on them.
While they are away I am going to be removing the following:
AIS
SAS
O2 Sensors
Install aux wiring harness for the aux lights and heated grips (I dont like the KTM ones they are just too damn fat)
Black Dog Skid Plate
Aftermarket Can to lose some weight
Touratech rear luggage rack
Topcase

This has way more wiring in it than my last KTM (a 990) ever did

That's a new Bike, and you have to spend all this $$$$$$$$$ to fix it? Dame Austrian

Gorgeous bike !!  I’ve had quite a few come through class and go home with broken windscreens. You may want to preemptively start shopping for something smaller and less “shatterey” to bolt on. 
Man that bike is a dream on the road though! Holy cow is it fun.

Not to fix it, to make it better suited to meet my particular needs/wants.

Looks like a fun project. Interested to hear what it sounds like with the new exhaust. What manufacturer is it? Mine is still completely stock going in for its first service once I can schedule it.

Yes riding it tomorrow to get rear wheel sensor swapped out

😡

Apparently they are directional when you install them and its counter intuitive to what you might think.
The long side goes in the direction of rotation.
