Good deal. Glad I got in early enough, then. We should still have another three or fours years worth of content on this thread. ;D

I took the wheel/tire into the Yamaha guys in town first thing this morning and it was ready by lunch.  Got it home and had to super clean everything at the bikes ass end.  I installed new rear caliper pads and bolted it back together before bedtime.

I'm going to give it a shot at repairing the fairings.  The PO had dropped the bike and cracked the left side pretty good.  The only damage on the right is the turn signal mount area.  I'm going to use old abs plastic and acetone to make an abs glue paste and a heat gun, soldering iron, superglue etc..   to try and make decent repairs.  I may resort to some resin, we'll see.
