K is an abbreviation for 1,000 - commonly used these days

Just to confuse you further, M is the Roman numeral for 1,000.

Class dismissed.
I'm fully aware of what K stands for it's also an abbreviation of kilometer now maybe you learned something :138:

k = thousand.
So your saying 35 thousand miles -- hard to believe-- not 35 thousand kilometers- even at 35,000 kilometers that would 21,000 miles -- very impressive-

As long as the fan works and the radiator is not blocked it would be very hard to over heat this bike

This is one of those rare bikes that a center stand can be fitted why not take advantage of that and fit one-and as a bonus it goes wherever you go :016:

Hi all just out of curiosity i did a check on the part numbers as someone else did here and yes they are different ....... so is the price . For a 2015 base for the peg (the part that fits into the carrier } alone is 63.90 for a 2019 model it is 23.90 no wonder they fitted these as a replacement . Probably charged the insurance company for a 2015 set that is 80.00 a set difference and that isnt the whole peg .
This is a good example of  one of those where you live things-in the USA the 2015 peg base is $10.32-- 2019 $16.80-- go figure-. converting to AU dollars it would be 2015 -13.60  --2019- 22.13---

Thanks for your concern motorboy.
Based on youtube videos and tire repair kits on the market, I assumed that 3 could at least be sufficient to take me to the next petrol station and there adjust tire pressure. They're cheap so I'll add 1 or 2 more for peace of mind.
I carry five and feel good about that choice-in years pass I had one fail and one that the gas escaped without going into the tire so the odds are good by carrying five

Since I don't do off road, I just need some tools to repair a flat tire or screw some loose bolt or mirror that eventually may happen, so I can get to my destination. More than that and I call my insurance company to tow the bike to a dealer shop.
I have combined them with the factory tools on a Ikea pouch (so no rattling) and discarded the original one, plus I had a small first aid kit that I didn't took pictures of.

Nice choice-you might want to add a few more CO2 cartridges because I don't think three will inflate a rear tire
