Added Risers and got rid of the ugly sting ray attachment. Went for a short ride really like Murphs risers so far, will see on a long ride ride tomorrow. too dang hot today. I used the Motodynamic kit for the fender. It is not a direct fit for the 2014 N1K missing the two screw holes and the wiring is a different color. I also reversed the brackets so the blinkers are tucked in tighter. I felt that I had to put the bolts in from the bottom which is backwards from how it was.

I would like to thank those that posted because it has made doing these mods much easier. I added the 16 tooth factory front sprocket that I read about in another post. Now there is a reason to shift. I always felt like I could skip a gear on every shift now much better also less engine braking ( I actually like some engine braking because Im old school). I used the haul master spool lift from Harbor freight, i found it to be sturdy when matched up with Keiti mini spools that I also read about on this forum (8mm for the 2014) It fit good and did not rub swing arm. The sprocket and Murph risers have made this bike a joy to ride all I need now is a seat from Mr Eds moto which I will do this fall. I love this bike for what it is. People try and make it a sport bike or a tourer which it is neither. If I wanted a Concours or a sport bike I would buy one. I find the ride thrilling enough for a 49 year old guy who has been riding since he was 15 and comfortable for my abused body (except seat). I have probably owned 20 differant street bikes and can say this is the most fun bike I have ever owned I currently own a VTX1800 and the bike I sold before buying the ninja was a ZRX1200R the Ninja feels light faster and brakes way better. Plus it looks fast just sitting :) Thanks for all the posts so my mods could go so smoothly
