I would check the solo seat cowl. Mine did not fit at all. I had to shim the front posts .140 " to even get it to slip on at the front. Then when I got it to fit, the yellow number plate grapics (they are just stickers), don't line up with the yellow graphics on the tail section. My tank has abrasions in the clear coat as it came out of the crate, and my dealer has had the replacement tank on order for over a month and a half now. There were other fit and finish issues with the bike that I am taking care of myself. Kind of pisses you off when you pay $18k for a bike, and they can't take some care when assembling it! And with the issue of getting parts, (Tank and stickers), I am now reminded of one of the primary reasons I got rid of my 96 Ducati. Be prepared to wait (a LONG TIME) for parts.

I had the same issue with the solo seat cowl on my Racing as 008man reported, otherwise the bike was perfect.
As always with any motorcycle I buy, I checked everything myself especially the safety related items like suspension, brakes, wheels, head bearings and controls.
I don't trust anybody when it comes to my bike, especially when I plan on ridding it at high speeds at the track.
I may be paranoid and I didn't find anything wrong, but for me there's no other way.

Yeah, kinda prepared myself for the parts availability issue b4 i bought the bike.. Got my dealer to fit the rear seat cowl for me and it did seem to go in pretty easily.. not sure bout the graohics lining up though :confused: Will prob go check later.
Think its neccessary to re-torque all the bolts myself? From what i've been reading, seems that they come loose pretty easily.. Have asked the dealer to do so, but u know dealers...... ;)
Spot-on on the price though.. Paid S$40,000 for mine.. Sheeesh.. they had better get it right!
