With Thanks to Adam P, I confirmed with V&H both in e-mail, and on the phone that this Fuel-Pak FP3 "66005" does indeed work with the Roadster, and there are maps for it.
OMG! A product that actually does what's promised! 15 minutes form opening the box, to having my ECM re-flashed with the canned map for an all stock setup. (Other maps are already available as well, and the gentleman I talked to from V&H said more are on the way). In the 98'/98'F heat/humidity, the factory map had the bike running rough, especially at lower rpm's. The FP-3 re-flash smoothed out all the bumps with just a little rough spot at 68-69mph in 5th. The advanced learning/adjust features should let me correct that as soon as I make the time. I'm not sure it does much for the top-end speed, but it's sure nicer to ride from taking off from a stop, through just over legal speeds.
Yeah, it's pricey, and I don't know how other brand/models work, but I sure like how my Roadster rides now.

I've had these for over a year now so here's my observations:
They're a bit small, especially if you have long fingers. I got an XL, even though I size out to an L. I can definitely feel some of the seams in the fingers from time to time and they're a bit tight and scratchy. The leather in the palm creases & bunches up in the heat. I'm not sure how much longer they'll hold up before cracking. Next year may be it. The dye is quickly coming off the back of the hand, It's almost a light grey on the back side and 'IF" I were to buy these again I'd get all black as the dye runs, darkening the grey fabric. They don't flow a lot of air but are a bit chilly for me under 65'F though. In mid summer I went back to my older Cortech GX air's. The touch pads work. They're a decent GO-TO glove, For the price, I'm not excited about recommending them, and I'll be looking for something else.

I'm just now thinking of retiring these, as the seams are just now starting to split & fray a bit. I got the XL's because the fingers, for me, were a bit short, thought that left me with palms a bit large. Worked out ok while riding though as my palms press out. They flow ALOT of air, more than the Rev-It Strikers I bought last year, but they're not quite as comfortable. The fabric is a bit scratchier, and I can feel some seams. The gauntlet is just long enough to keep my wrists covered from sunburn. They were a great hot weather glove for the money. I'm a little less enthusiastic about them after this years price increase though. Maybe one more year of use? ;)

My inseam is 36" from crotch to floor, and my waist size (34"), so J.R. was about the only choice in my size anyway. (Large/Tall)
I'm a full time motorcyclist, and bought these in the Autumn of 2013, and while they're not big on features, they've held up well, and show no real signs of wear yet. They're too hot for me in anything over 80'F, and with the water proof liner in that drops to about 70'F. I have no issues with the comfort, and don't find them bulkiy, though they're not slim either. I've had no poblems fitting them over street clothes, and they cinch down enough for wearing over Under/Armor or skivvies. The back cinch tabs are a bit flimsy, and found it best to adjust them first before fastening the front. (I think they'll tear otherwise.) The Leg zippers constantly catch on the seam flaps and can be a pain when zipping the full length. I haven't had any issues with leaks, but if it's really going to pour, even n January, it's generally too warm for me to wear these. They could use some reflective material, but overall I think they're solid for the price.

I'm writing this to help others with longer hands & fitting. These gloves were suggested to me as having longer fingers than other brands. By Held's size chart my hand measured >9", a size 9. From my wrist to the tip of my middle finger is 8". To make sure my fingers would fit, size 10 was recommended.
Gloves arrived, and I tried gloves on. The palm area was WAY too big, the thumb was fine, but all the fingers were too short. Gloves are going back. Next up...Ladies gloves!!?? (no pink) ;)

Now that April's here, and I'm storing the coat away...
Height <6ft
chest: 40"
waist: 33"
arms: 24" shoulder to wrist
Bought the Med.
Fills the bill for a lightweight, (really light!), water proof winter coat. It's the first one I found that cinches down to a svelte enough cut, and still has sleeves long for for my arms.
The double zipper is a nice feature but it's finicky to get fastened.
I have to wait till I'm situated on the bike to properly fasten the neck, which has a really short tab, or it pops open when I move around
I did stay dry in a couple nasty downpours, but the caveats with the mid liner is that:
1: Keep the sleeves OUSIDE your gloves as they will fill with water.
2: You'll find out very shortly if your pants crotch leaks as a puddle of water will form there soon enough if you sit upright.
The pockets could be a bit larger, but Meh..
Small vents only to the mid liner. I'm not sure how or if they work, as I never pulled the thermal or used them.
I'm happy with it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

 AXO Freedom GT WP Boots
AXO Freedom GT WP Boots
AXO Freedom GT WP Boots The Freedom GT Waterproof Touring boot is a unique blend of modern materials, construction and design with a time tested fit, function and attention to detail. The Freedom GT utilizes a PU coated synthetic outer construction, which resists breaking down, deformation and thickness irregularities found in a natural material. The unique closure system is achieved by using the new BOA TECHNOLOGY ratcheting spool and stainless steel lace. The center lacing floats over the padded and supportive tongue. Synthetic stretch panels flex and wrap the instep, heel and upper calf areas perfectly. Durable suede leather panels cover the medial side of the Freedom GT guarding the boot and the bike from wear and abrasion. The shin, heel cap and calf panel use a pressure molded PU plate offering support and safety against impacts. The shin plate and instep use a full coverage hook and loop closure to seal the front from wind and weather. A soft rubber gaiter is utilized over the shin plate to seal the front of the boot against the leg or pant. Laid over the top of the instep and toe box, the shifter pad is thick enough to reduce irritation yet allows complete dexterity when shifting. AXO's own injection molded sole is aggressive enough to grip while walking yet glides on the foot pegs when riding. The plastic mid sole and sole offer the correct amount of support reducing fatigue and guarding the bottom of the foot while riding. Mesh lining and internal padding wrap your foot in comfort. Reflective inserts are placed in the rear of the boot for safety.

I was happy when I received them. The BOA lacing is a great idea. The boots form fittingly tighten equally whether pants are tucked in or not. I found the foot bed to be about med width erring to the slightly wide side. The toe box is thick, and i would want to adjust my shifter, 'IF' I kept them. It's a great design, poorly executed on an inferior quality boot. The boots, left/right, were not made the same. I'm attaching the pic I sent to ZLA to show the issues that made me send them back after 2 weeks of pain from the lower wire on the left boot biting into the tongue and the top of my foot. You can also see that the tongue is not designed like the boots shown on site. Kudos to ZLA for a fast warranty return. It's a shame, because if these were made correctly, I would have loved to have kept them. FYI- They're actually made in China.

Kaoko Throttle Lock Ducati 748/ 848/ 916/ 996/ 998/ 999/ 1098/ 1198/ Monster 1100 S EVO/ Multistrada S/ Streetfigther S/ Scrambler The Kaoko Cruise Control is perfect for anyone looking to reduce fatigue and strain on your hand and wrist during long distance highway riding. Each Throttle Lock consists of a simple, ingenious and robustly designed friction nut that is integrated with a special Kaoko bar end weight. The Kaoko bar end weight is closely matched in appearance and weight to the Original Equipment Manufacturer's (OEM) bar end weight. The Friction Nut has a left-hand thread. It must be adjusted so that it makes light contact with the rubber throttle sleeve. The Grub Screw is set to provide the necessary resistance on the friction nut. This may be adjusted periodically to take up wear. To Engage: Twist the throttle and friction nut simultaneously with your right hand. This action tightens the nut and provides sufficient friction to set throttle to the desired position. The friction nut is designed that the rider may still open and close the throttle. To Disengage: Roll off the throttle while gripping the friction nut. The throttle should open and snap closed freely. Type A: Compatible with or without OEM handguards. Type B: Compatible with Barkbusters BLG12 and BLG13 Handguards Type C: Compatible with Monster 696 models with CRG bar end mirrors Features: Easy to operate, even with heavy winter gloves High quality, compact and durable design Super smooth action Takes less than 5 minutes to install Very little maintenance is required Less wear and tear on throttle cables and grips Better MPG Inlcudes matching left bar end

Bought this for my Multistrada just before a trip through the Ozarks...It's easy enough to install, easier than getting the OEM bar ends off.
Be advised! On the back of the instruction sheet,the company offers no warranty.
I'll start with nit picks: I think the price is...maybe fair, but for some reason, the paint on the bar weight for the left side is bubblng up, and off. For the money I think it should be anodized or something and not just a spray-painted finish.
Performance thus far:
As long as your flat ground, it's great! You can relax your throttle grip and, (not reccomendly), do some Cycle-Yoga! I can put my muscles back in somewhat relaxed working order. One feature that's nice is that it has a set screw so you can apjly just enough pressure to keep the throttle from snapping closed and yet still work it, an in between off/and full on. Since it's a throttle jammer, of course you will slow down going up-hill, and speed up going downhill; so it's useless in real hills/mountains.

Smoke shield:
It is harder and takes me longer, because of the dark tint, to line up and replace the shield as I can't really see all the pins and such. It's dark enough that I don't need my sunglasses. It slows down the sun from heating my helmet up when it's in the face. Without needing shades, I can enjoy full periphery vision.
