Wow! You'd think a hardened military veteran of 21 years wouldn't get all emotional reading those comments, but you have me tearing up over here @panchobullet ! (Having said that, it was the Air Force, not the Marines, so that could explain it, LoL!)
 
Seriously though, it has been an absolute pleasure to have made such an impact on your experience in getting Dark-Y set up just how you want. Your passion and love for motorcycles is magnetic!
 
I'm honored you chose us for all your FZ-07 needs, and can't wait to see how Dark-Y comes together!
 
:)

P.S.  I didn't forget about your "special request."  I have something in mind to make it even better, but it'll take some time to do :)

LOL @bellissimoto hey now, Paulie -- being in the USAF doesn't make us soft, it makes us smart. When my buddies were cleaning sand out of their gear in the desert, I was sitting in an air conditioned room behind a computer in northern Italy :)

Right!  All my Army and Marine buddies used to get mad at me when we would deploy.  I'm like, "Have fun playing in the mud, sleeping 6 to tent fellas...I'll be in my 5 star hotel suite if ya need me." 
:P

LOL! @bellissimoto & @so1102 you guys cracked me up with the "army" jokes! :P
 
@sorkyah The sizes are different. One is 41T in steel/aluminium (black/gold one) that I'll use mainly for street ride and trips and to get a little more top end speed. The other one is 45T in steel (black) that I'll use mainly for track days and to get faster acceleration which is also the reason I got two chains so I can have one chain according to each option and avoid adding/removing links when swapping them.

We did just get a new batch of stickers, and sometimes they stick together.  Either that, or my shipping guy just went nutz, lol.
 
Either way, I'll sort you out @sorkyah , don't worry :)

Here are the pics for UPDATE 2!
 
Lit battery fits perfect. I placed it with the terminals facing to the right and used a couple of the spacers under it and fits like a glove!

Left rearset (took of the OEM shift shoe protector and put it into the Gilles one). 
 
[attachment id=1883" thumbnail="1]
 
Note: It fits perfectly with the Annitori QS Pro + 90mm shift rod. This side was a really effortless install.
 
 
Right rearset:
 
[attachment id=1882" thumbnail="1]
 
Note: This side required more work than the other due break connectios but nothing crazy complex. Just be cautious and patient.
 
 
Right side wide shot:

I left the standard setting in both for now but I'll be changing it once I get and install the Woodcraft clip-ons & bars. Keep you all posted fellas!

Update 3:
 
So as one image can say more than words so let's start with the picture of the items I got from @bellissimoto in as part of package 2:
 
[attachment id=2190" thumbnail="1]
 
What you can see in the picture is the following:
- Gilles AXB Chain Adjuster Black
- Gilles Pivot Covers Gold
- World Wide Bearing Ceramic Bearing Kit
 
520 Conversion Kit 1:
- Vortex Steel Front Sprocket 16T
- EK 3D 520 Chain Black/Gold
- SuperSprox Stealth Rear Sprocket 41T Gold
 
520 Conversion Kit 2:
- EK MVXZ 520 Chain Black (race track only)
- Vortex Steel Rear Sprocket 45T (race track only)
 
- Sticket, key chains, T-Shirt
 
All off them are really great products and I really love them all! About the conversion kit I'm really happy with it and the "only" but I have is about the 41T rear sprocket as it's kinda more "lazy" of what I expected so I'll be getting a 42T soon. More pics shortly!

I feel like I'm living vicariously through you right now. Whenever you post a pic of a new part, I feel like I just got a new part also. Then I walk out to my bike and see the parts aren't there and I realize I was just dreaming.

Paypal credit is both a blessing and a curse..
goodies for bike on one hand... have to pay it off at 12% interest on the other
 
Let me know how you like your bearings...
i havent gotten to ride mine much yet

Well at least I'm not using Paypal credit anyway... As i'm not in the US (remember that I live in Chile) basically I use Paypal linked to my Visa card... they charge to my international account there than is later fully charged into my national account the following month. So whatever I get today I have to pay it fully in 30 or 60 days (depending if I pay the international bill or wait for the next month to be automatically charged into my national one).... Oh and add overseas shipping and custom fees :-P 
Now for the bearings it-self... I do feel bike runs a little smoother but since I also changed the gearing it's hard to say for sure how well it is. But at least the "free wheel" spin test was awesome... bad on me that I didnt recorded it but just to give you and idea I'd say that stock bearing will let the wheel freely run for about 10 full spins... with the new bearings it will do 40-50... and just knowing that I'm really really happy... :-)
