Greetings & Salutations!!!

Wow, that's awesome paint job!

I like using 16t sprocket in front for freeway cruising. Much more relaxed.
Stock fork seals work fine. Just did mine last month.

Welcome. Factory seals are great but if you want to save a little money "All Balls Racing" sells seals as well. I used them on my CBR and 1k miles later and 2 trackdays it's still good. Enjoy your bike you'll get a lot out of it.

Welcome Tyler...
I have a 2012 250R and love it
I would keep with the stock shocks and just rebuild them myself much cheaper that way.
that is a very pretty paint job on your bike ! I love the metal flake !
but get you some sliders on it before you lay it down and scratch it all up as you'll never be able to match that paint !
I have a 16 tooth sprocket on front and a 43 tooth sprocket on the rear
and I could cruse at 70~75mph all day if my butt could handle it ! LOL
I did have to work on the chain cover in the front to get clearance though...
I just took a hack saw blade and cut the part that was touching off....
(technically I clamped the chain cover in the vice between 2 wood blocks and cut off the half moon protrusion with a reciprocating saw, it went pirty fast, and then bolted right up. no more shift shift and shift before going 30mph either... that's silly !
Its too late when you've gone too far !
