Re: Aftermarket exhaust pipes for the 1290

That system looks good - very ducati like and looks like good pipework especially where it twists back through the swingarm. I also like the reduction in pipe diameter around the top y joint for back pressure. Is this now a production item? Unfortunately the cops in my area would have you off the r...

Rokform is the best phone mount hands down, no other brand comes close.

Re: 2015 Still In Crate - Should I Buy?

I bought a left over 2015 five months ago and I have had 2 or 3 minor problems with the bike but for some reason I love this bike more than any bike I have ever owned, Including my RSV4 which I thought was my dream bike. I can't get enough of it :P

Re: Fork seal leaking at 2700 miles WTF

Has anyone had a problem with a fork seal leak on the SDR? The dealer told me it was not covered under warranty, it's brand new! They said it was normal wear and tear, the bike has 2700 miles on it! WTF Did you try something like trying a "seal mate"? Or the edge of credit card, or your license? So...

Re: Fork seal gone

I first noticed there was a little oil around 2000 miles then it began to drip on my garage floor at about 2600 miles.

Re: Fork seal gone

^^ You could also have some grit or crud caught in the seal, I've heard of guys using a thin feeler gage to to clean them out, you remove the dust seal cover, and insert the thin feeler gage between the tube and the seal and move around the fork tube with a pulling or moving down motion, you will l...

Re: Fork seal gone

Re: Bunny Ears no more CRG\Rhino Moto

I have the CRG Arrows with CRG bar ends and the levers touch the mirror mounts, those rhino ends would fix that problem, where did you get them?

Re: Supercorsa SP vs SC vs Rossa Corsa

I have ran 3 sets of Super Corsas and 2 sets of Rosso Corsas, I like the Rosso's better on the track and street, the SC's are more expensive and ware out faster, I can push the Rosso's just as hard and get more life out of them. I will stay with the Rosso Corsas.
