I'm running the new Sport Attack 3's and really impressed with them, very predictable on damp roads and even better in the dry.

Re: Oil recommendations for 2016

I've changed to the Motul's KTM specfic oil on recommendation of a very knowable mechanic and found it better than Motorex. Normally I'd just say stick with Motorex but I'll be using Motul from now on as it better in my opinion also.

Re: 990 Power Commander 5 & Tune ECU custom maps

Just changed to the #20 tune after fitting the procycle.us airfilter kit and supporting parts, really impressed it how well it sorts the fuelling, the 2nd gear power wheelies aren't bad either. If anyone is looking for a airfilter kit then I can recommend procycle.us kit as its really good and blood...
