Whew...actually works out for the best.  My bike has been returned to the dealer...I'm without a bike right now.  Know anyone selling a low mileage 2016 2017 VFR1200X DCT?

Finally found the bike and bought it today.  It is up in Wisconsin and will be here in a little bit!  Super excited. Needs a new seat as the previous owner trimmed the foam.  Any suggestions are welcome.  If anyone in the USA is selling a seat I'd be interested in hearing from you.

Sorry, One more thing.  The case has a little scuff on it.  Does anyone have any experience in refinishing the cases?  I am somewhat proficient with prep, prime, and spraying.

Congratulations on finally getting a CT.

If you can't live with the seat perhaps just buy a mobility cushion then cut the foam to suit you (cheaper than a seat for now)

As for the case scuff, depending on the depth (I can't enlarge the photo enough) T cut, or the polish autoglym sell to refresh headlamps.

Personally a few battle scars dont worry me as I'm terrible for clonking the cases with my boots or scratching the colour coded ones in the lock up when stored.

Happy riding

Thanks, Viffer.  I agree that it looks like it's going to need a bit of filler. Do you, or others, know the paint code for the panniers, or where they can be found I guess is a more accurate question.

I've found a new OEM seat.  300 bucks shipped.  Seems pretty reasonable. Again, I am open to suggestions or advice.
