Looks good man
Yes its vacuum, had it a while(never got round to fitting it to my 1050). Would struggle to hide the wiring for the lights around the tank so two birds with one stone and all that.Not sure you would need to remove tank as it's a bit off a pain in the arse for either as there are acc1 and acc2 under the seat for the scottoiler and in the light for the auxiliary lights

Often it's just the back wheel and chain that look dirty (plus the fly splats all over the front).
For my 990 (with no centre stand) I can't be arsed to set up the ABBA stand just for a chain & rear wheel clean, and I don't trust my shitty paddock stand as I've almost dropped it once on that... so I decided to make up this swing arm lift kit...

Simple to do..
Lock the front brake with re-usable cable ties.

Side stand in a chock that I "milled out" on my pillar drill. Had fun doing that, felt like a proper machinist.. sort of..
That stopped the bike sliding across the floor when I lifted it from the other side.

Finally a prop under the swing arm made to size to allow the tyre to clear, with a bit of old wet suit to protect the paint work. Just lift the rear against the side stand and then give that a kick inwards to take up the slack.

It's quick to do & surprisingly stable.
Can then clean the rim and give the chain and good oiling and towel down to leave it looking clean and shiny.
I'm ready now for a bit of ride tomorrow, off to Bude because the Mrs wants to ride there.
