I know I can help you get that thing running perfectly. It takes a bit of work, call me at 253-761-2222 and we can talk. I sold my S as I can't ride anymore, but I'm happy to help you as these things can run so much better.
Noticed in those excellent photos you posted today that you've had a variety of different windshields on your S, including a laminar lip. I've been contemplating buying a Cee Bailey's +4" for my S, but have wondered a bit about the laminar lip...your opinion? I'm 6'2", though with a bit of a long trunk so probably shaped a bit like a 6'4" guy, stock shield is somewhat okay, but that wind blast on the long rides to Nevada/etc it would be nice to swap out the stocker for something a little more protective....
