i have 3000 miles on my RS, and it's still easier to get to neutral
from second. i can sometimes do it from first, but not always.

that givi kit is for a topbox, not for side cases, but yes it fits an
RS (since the top rack is the same on both bikes. for givi sidecases
you can order a (recently developed) wire-frame rack from givi (it's
on their website), or you can get adapters that allow you to put on a
wingrack from NZ:
i couldn't find any other options when i was looking, nor could i
find racks for the RS from hepco-becker or krauser.

the pipe on the RS cannot be lowered. at least, i've not heard
of anyone doing it -- i'd imagine it would need a bunch of parts
from an ST to do so.

it's not hard to put on -- haven't taken mine off. once it's on,
i'd suspect that the convenience of having it will preclude any
thoughts of removing it. :-) (that being said, it would probably
come off in 20 minutes. it's stretching the spring that's the hard
part with centerstands.)
