Speaking of levers, make sure that the hollow in the clutch handle where the clutch cable is fixed is well lubed. The round plug at end of cable must be able to rotate slightly as you pull the clutch lever in. If it’s dry there you will snap the cable over time.

A friend of mine have a Speed Triple R which I've tried for a bike swap ride. These bikes are incredibly crisp and precise. Two different bikes with different personalities. Good choice.

Yeah I was going to compliment on the garage full of personal activities.. Everything from excellent autoX, street hooligan, highway sleeper and a nicely organized shop to house them all.. You my friend have done it right.

Which aftermarket levers did you choose? I have looked, but not pulled the trigger yet. I would like mine much closer to the grip for 1-2 finger usage, and top class fit and finish.

I got these from MC Motoparts on ebay but I did not get the short ones, I got the regular size but they still have the same bend. They are built well compared to some $200 ones I've seen, of course the more expensive ones are nicer but these are good enough for me. They shipped them pretty quick from Hong Kong, I had them within a week, maybe less. I think on ebay all of the ones you see are made by the same factory, just different exporters. They fit well and have a great finish.

This. And make sure both feet of the stand are touching the ground when you start.

Two updates - with all your help I figured out the center stand deal....I was trying to lift the bike vs really stand on the center stand pad.

On the brake lever - lets just say I'm a dummy and it is just fine. Or I should look more closely at the adjuster knob ....
