    Getting the new Tdubs settled in

    Here's a pic of the girls in the driveway the day after we got them.
    A bit shiny and new, but we will get some of that shiny off shortly.

    Have ordered cycle racks, power mad hand guards, Jimbo shields, handlebar risers and skid plates.
    Will add pics as the bits arrive.

    How are they running? I had to adjust my clutch and it needs to be on choke for a good 8 min to really be better. I think the idle is slightly low on my 2014.

    Beauty - next weekend the weather should be good enough to get out for a tear and likely your Jimbo shields will be on and your hand gaurds too.

    Ah, telling them apart?
    That is quite a problem, but have ordered different coloured windscreens and hand guards, that should help. I don't want to look like twins, so will figure out a few more customizations.
    I am wondering about getting my skid plate anodized and coloured.

    They seem to be running fine fandango. I haven't noticed any clutch slipping. Mine does seem a smidge low on the idle, but want to live with it for a bit before I mess with anything mechanical.

    My idle only seems low when it's still warming up after shutting the choke off, after riding it for a bit though and it gets fully warmed up the idle is much better... If after riding around I'm at a light for a fair amount of time I'll notice the idle drop down some more... But it's working fine so far

    This is normal, I wouldn't worry about it. A cold engine, friction and resistance until the oil is warmed up and the motor can move more freely.

    I'd save my money for an aftermarket skid plate. You can get them in colors also. Skid Plate
