I finally got the first round of installs done on my Honda NM4/Vultus/NC700JD. (Different names for the same bike).

In this picture you can see the Case I kept from my Silverwing.  
Ordered a Black top for it. Originally it was wine color to match my 2003SW
Had the rack powder coated and transferred it to this top. Matte black. Looks awesome.
You can also see the Honda optional windshield that is higher than stock.

A closer look at the case install shows an aftermarket rack from Japan that was much sturdier than the Honda version.

From the back, you can see the yellow (front) and red (rear) reflectors have been changed to LEDs.
Also added the Admore lighting to the GIVI box.  The license plate frame was saved from the Silverwing too.
Its a signal dynamics frame that has upper/lower red brake lights and yellow turn signals.

Other items brought over from the Swing were the turn signal beeper and the Stebel nautilus horn.
I've also installed the Honda Factory heated grips. and the JoeFlorida Light kit.
Notice this bike has a left hand lever even though it has a DCT transmission?
That's because I had the right side foot brake moved to a left side hand brake like on our Silverwings.

Still to be added:
Morikami Slip on Muffler.
Center stand (adapting from an NC700)
Tire pressure monitor
Battery Monitor
Fork lights
Possibly a dedicated GPS.

Really feels good to be on 2 wheels again.

Nice looking bike except for the front wings. If those wings were turned around to create a fairing with storage, then you'd have something Smile.

Actually there are little storage compartments in each wing.
A slightly smaller area by volume than the silverwing dash but in a weird shape.

Dan,

It looks great. How do you like it so far? I think it is a cool looking bike.

Jeff, I love the bike.
Now that I don't have to use the key to put the backrest up and down,
its much easier to get on and off of.

There is some inconvenience with the way the gas gage blinks when it needs a refill.
I always have over a gallon of gas left when that happens, which is at least 60 miles.
I think it comes on way too early.

Now that I have a top case I have a place to store my gear when I get to the mall.
I can fit my helmet and my riding jacket in the case.

Everywhere I go I get compliments on it.

So many people tell me it looks like something out of Batman, that I got a custom plate
(Hint: Enlarge the 3rd picture) Cool

Before I had the top case I even felt comfortable with a passenger.
I don't know if a passenger will fit between me and the top case anymore. Haven't tried.

On the Silverwing I was innovating new accessories.
Fortunately there are others that have innovated what to me are the most important mods
and posted tutorials.

First was a way to not use the key to move the backrest up and down.

Second was the adding of a center stand.  
The bike has the place for it on the frame. But it isn't a stock item for some reason.

Third was moving the right foot brake to the left hand brake.
Oddly enough they used brake controls from a Silverwing to do this.
Now the bike feels more familiar.

My performance motorcycle shop where I get my work done suggested adding a turbo,
but I reminded him that he discouraged me from adding one to the Silverwing because
there was no kit for it and it would be trial and error. When I reminded him this bike
would have the same problem, he looked sad. LOL

I'm spending enough to outfit this bike with the important toys. I don't need to spend
another few grand on trial and error.

Right now the only downside is that I can't get him to put in a real cruise control.
He is afraid of the liability.

Until that expensive outfit mccruise.com in Australia puts out a kit for it I'm kinda outta
luck on that.

What do you think about this muffler slip on?

Dan it's good to see you're quickly making your new bike "yours". I'm sure you're happy to be back in the saddle again. I've always liked vehicles(cars or bikes)that many others think are "odd". Twisted Evil Usually it's the "odd" that is a big part of what I like about it. It looks you're going to need to allow extra time on most rides for answering questions about your bike, it sure looks good.  
I like looks of the muffler, but do you know how it sounds?  Wink    
Do the reflectors that have been changed to LEDs still reflect if the LEDs are off?

As much as can be expected.  These are often used for tail lights and turn signals on busses.
