I'm hoping to buy tech/service manuals when they are available---or whenever someone uploads them for free :D but to answer your Q---no.
I didn't even know frame sliders were available yet, but I did buy the graves fender eliminator and am having a custom seat made. I saw you posting in another thread about maintenance and I'm with you on doing everything on my own. I did everything but suspension/brake work on my previous bikes, but that's just because I don't have the space to do such work.

Did you already do your 600 mile service?

I'm planning to do everything but brake, and valve work. On my last bike I let the dealer do everything but oil changes. This time around I feel like I don't feel compelled to ride every second of my life so I'm making time to work on my bike. I'm still not at 600 yet are you?

Sorry to bump an older thread - was searching for torque specs for the rear axle. 137 ft/lbs seems really high - roughly 50% more than any other axle I've worked on [80-90lbs]. I have seen in the past where service manuals were printed incorrectly... I was hoping an experienced mechanic might chime in and confirm it's 137ft/lb for the rear axle?
