Plus 1. I put polisport and factoryeffex on mine. The plastics were great. The effex’s quality is awesome but slightly smaller in size compared to factory.

So that's an 08'!  Hope you do know that they came out with a black edition with ghost flames from the factory.  I think there were only like 800 bikes released in black.  I have one.  Very sexy.  Currently mine is getting a full rebuild on the engine with 208 hrs.  It will be a new bike when done.  Adding in a Stage II hotcam as well after I found .001 play in the cam bearing.  That's where it all started at checking the valves... While waiting on the new cam I decided to change piston and rings and then down to the connecting arm and found play on axis.  So now I've got the case split and a new bottom end kit on the way.   It always starts small and harmless doesn't it?  Then you are into a full bore rebuild.

Try using a strap wrench or putting a copper penny in between the gears on the rear of the clutch basket to hold it.

Doing a bottom end is a therapeutic experience.   Mine is ready to put the case halves together.  I took that day off from the bottom yesterday and honed the cyl and lapped the stainless valves.  I put in a HotRods crank.  Still shopping for a piston but will likely go with OEM.
