The F4 and F4i had mounting provisions for a center stand (and some models came with them from the factory in some markets). Might want to look and see if you can just buy a factory center stand and install it. Way easier and more convenient than a bike stand and spools. Definitely one feature my Bandit had that I miss (and can't be installed on the Ninja).
But center stands look weird on a sport bike.
Anyways, first day of commuting in the bag! Only had to do a bit of lane splitting on the highway. It wasn't too bad, except my headphones came out partially while riding back and the wind noise became ridiculous. The highway I take is empty enough that I never feel that I'm going to get in someone's way or get hit.
The gas issue came up again. About 80 miles into this tank, the reserve indicator popped up, and it started flashing all 4 bars (extremely low) at 100 miles. I kept riding and got home at about 115 miles and opened the tank lid and peeked inside. There's still a good amount of gas left in the tank. I'm not sure why it keeps on yelling at me so early. I'd expect to get at least 150 miles before getting the reserve indicator, considering most of my riding is on the freeway. I might have to do more research. Other than that, and a visor full of dead bugs, it was a blast. Saved time and got to leave when I wanted at work.
Anywho, I also stopped by Cycle Gear because my HJC's visor was about to snap off (it actually did in the store). The guy was nice enough to install two new screws into the visor holder thingy and I was good to go. I did try on a Shoei RF1200 though. God damn that thing is NICE. It's so light and I hear it's extremely quiet. Unfortunately, in the colorway I want, it's pretty expensive ($530 before tax). I mainly went there for an AGV K3 helmet because AGV makes some awesome colorways and it's priced reasonably, but when I put it on, it was pressing pretty hard against my forehead and temples even though the cheeks were pretty loose. Guess I can't wear an AGV then.
