Well I removed the awful black and white checkered tank protector that was installed and replaced with a tank protector from the tank slapper...




Danmoto clip ons have been ordered in black. Now I need some comfy grips, exhaust, and I'm set for quite a while

Congrats man. I had a similar story. Except about 3 years and 2007 SV650s. You'll see that a lot of members here are former (or current) SV riders. You're going to love the Daytona. Go find the What Do You Need thread to get good prices from Rider's Discount. Lot's of good stuff.

Damn tank slapper is almost invisible. I think I strained my eyes trying to see it.lol The flush mounts really made the bike look cleaner. Congrat, and good luck with the mods.

Thanks again guys! Scorpio i900 with a proximity sensor will be here this week.
Once I get my car back up and running I think I'll send the pegs and what not to get powder coated satin black. I'm really trying to get the focus on the paint and frame. Forks will probably get vinyl wrapped. Any recommendations on on heat shield for the seat and "trunk"? I've got header wrap for the exhaust.

If you ride fast enough, there's no need for that.

Not much you can do for the heat since most of it is coming from the engine not the exhaust. Some people have said wrap has helped a little, but I am not sure how much difference it is really going to make for your seat, the passenger seat may see a big difference, but you yourself (unless you ride on back) probably wont feel much.
