You just made his xmas.

Everything you ordered you should be able to bolt on yourself with simple hand tools. Plus it gives you a chance to get to know bike. My only real suggestion would be to not do the hot toppers unless this is just a show bike. If you plan on riding it, they will rust your bolt heads out. Also why did you get the Rizoma forward control kit and toe pegs?

i only got the rizoma forward control kit because i thought it was a replacement from the stocks. so, for the look?
and copy on the hot toppers. i wont use em. i just got em for the look but if theyre gonna damage the bike, i won't.

and yeah, after i placed the order... he sent a long email and we had a phone chat.. he said he hadn't had that large of an order all at once before. i found that bizarre!

Hot toppers look amazing, but they trap moisture inside and quickly rut the both heads away. Fine for a show bike that doesnt really see the elements.

Both the rizoma forward control kit and the flat end diamond pegs are pretty much the exact same thing. You can only install one or the other.

Install time wont be bad, you can probably have it all together in 2 weeks since it is all prepainted.

-Front Fender - (4 bolts) 10 minutes
-Gladiator Grill Headlight w/ braket (2 bolts and wiring) - 30 minutes
-49mm Fork Boots - (4 bolts for tripple trees, 4 bolts for calipers) You will also need a motorcycle jack for this job - 2 hours
-SUPERBRACE FORK STABILIZER - Install after fork boots - 1 hour
-Flat End Billet Grips - Pretty simple, use the step by step instructions in the Service Manual - 1 hour
-LED "Wrap Around" Turn Signals (install after fort boots and superbrace) - 1 hour-Complete Hot Toppers Kit - Ask him to credit you back for this - 0 hours
-SGR Custom Airbox Covers - (Just need to relocate gage 1 bolt to remove the cluster, 4 bolts to get the gage out of the holder) - 1 hour
-LED Sidemount - Just do this when you install the air ride - 30 min for wiring
-LED TURN SIGNAL & BRAKE STRIPS (not sure why you have this since you didnt do a custom rear fender)
-Rizoma Forward Controls (2 clips and 4 bolts) - 1 hour
-Flat End Diamond Pegs (same thing as above, pick one and return the other)
-Rizoma Handlebars w/ Clamshell - (wont need the clamshell, 2 bolts to replace handbars plus controls) - 2 hours
-Precision Cut Grills - (2 bolts) - 30 min
-Metzler Tires (Have to take these to get mounted and balanced)
-Vrod #14 Wheels (Watch the videos) - 4 hours
Also you will still need to buy replacement bearings to install new wheels
-CFR Slip-on Exhaust - 1 hour
-Power Commander V - Install with turbo
-Trask Turbo - All depends on your skills plan a full weekend.

Really? Doesn't sound that bad for now, are you doing all installs? The hardest part will be probably the turbo and getting it dialed. How many miles does the bike have?

no, im gonna take it in and have it all done and pick it up when its done. maybe as the smaller parts come in i will do some add ons, but none of the major work. i wouldnt want to screw anything up.

You still will need some more stuff. Tools (if you dont have tons of allen drivers), motorcycle jack, wheel bearings, tire install and balance, someone to tune your bike on a dyno, oil & brake fluid, locktite (maybe another 1k all combined)

I would say you can easily install every single thing with basic hand tools except the turbo kit.

It is called a streetfighter or euro rear fender. There are a couple different companies that make them, No Limit Customs is the most well known (and most expensive).

That particular one is from R&R

Here is one very similar
