On the first day, I lost two screws. The tiny screws that hold on the plexyglass window will vibrate out if you don't LokTite them. Don't trust Rizoma to have secured them for you. And don't over tighten them either, or the plexiglass will crack. Yes, both happened to me. Oh, Rizoma will happily sell you kit consisting of a replacement window and screws for $$$$. Imagine that.

But yea, I think it looks cool and rather unique. I only wish there were some aftermarket anodized pulleys available. Another idea to make it look badazz is just do away with the entire cover and let the internals be viewed unobstructed! (Not my idea, I saw it in a magazine and it looked great!)

Was it easy to install, or did you have to take a lot of parts off? I think this may be my next up grade.

It is rather simple to install, but you have to have the correct angle on the piece.

You will have to remove:

Ignition Switch Cover
Tank
Undertank Panels
OEM cover (obviously)
Right Side Fairings

After that is done, stand at the back of the bike and slide it in at an angle. It will go in with no issues. Re-tighten the screws, and presto!

Wowzers. Thats a lot of parts you are removing. I am trying to get away from strictly cosmetic upgrades. I need at least one performance upgrade associated with a modification in order to justify it to myself. Granted that improved performance may often be a stretch of the imagination but it does need to be there...in theory.

So that brings me to my follow up question: is there any improved performance/function that can be gained by adding a Rizoma clear timing belt cover?

No, it is strictly cosmetic on this one. But it sure is sexy to see your gears spinning along side your clutch. (assuming you have an open clutch cover)
