Rear cut

The triple is having its rear end cut. It's less radical than it sounds as only the undertray is being cut. It's a dual purpose modification. As explained earlier, the first desired effect is to make the street-to-track transformation easier. But the operation comes with a second noticeable effect which is weight loss.

The new plate support is from Republique Racing and is incredibly light. You can hardly feel its presence in your hand. The finish is good as well. This kind of plate support - the "stage 2" - had previously been proven on the R1100S before, so I bought knowing what to expect.
