    There are no differences...there are no US or EU versions... USD - upside down (inverted forks)

    Scorp: same reason here...to match the clutch side... really bad idea

    I am leaving for vacations on Wednesday with my gf - almost two weeks in Greece, away from my bikes:( I will have to rent at least some scooter there:D The worst thing is, it costs so much, I could buy all remaining parts from my list:cussing::laugh::D

    Another cowl modelling...I really hate this procedure. I'll have to buy or make some home polystyrene cutter. Anyway I'm decided to pay for custom made ALU cowl. I'll also make some battery box and move it under the swingarm due to the weight balance and cowl size.

    New headlamp and POD filters are on the way to daddy. I assume these pods will have inner lip.:doh: Does anyone know the source of good PODs (without the lip) in EU? I don't wanna red K&Ns. Also black/grey crankcase filter would be great.

    You can use the stock H-pipe with those pods that way you can hook up the breather hose. It will work just fine.

    I have the same pod filters and tried them directly on my carbs,no good there was blockage from the lip.Another thing is theres no foam to protect dirt from getting in the carbs.I cut of the 1st inch off the rubber hpipe then mounted them on after using some more foam inside.They work ok for now.But upgrading to something better is on my todo list.

    I run the cheap pods with lips. no issues whatsoever. Just don't push them to the very end when tightening to carbs.
