Re: 40 T rear sprocket

I definitely wouldn't put a 42 tooth on, you will loose all the feel of the torque from this engine, you won't feel the drive from this motor pushing big gears, plus your chain won't reach. its also why i didn't put a 1 tooth smaller sprocket on the front, which equals about a 3 tooth change on the ...

Re: Quick shifter not working

When i first brought my GT the quick shifter didn't work, it was turned on in the menu setting, so at 1000K service they reset the parameters its works in, and its been brilliant since.

Re: New 2016 SDGT

The seat is very comfortable Twisty, and a good shape, the screen works well, I'm happy with mine, no fine buffeting like on the multistrada factory screens. Once you get your bike you will be able overtime make assessments on to small changes you might want to make, but out of the box, the bike is ...

Re: Different front brake pads?

I find them really good Allan, i also fitted them on my EX 1290R, and i have them on my multistrada. they are Vesrah VD9031RJL, they are factory pads for GSXR1000, and the HP4 BMW. Thanks Dave. These seem well suited to what I'm looking for and I just ordered some :D They are a very high quality pa...

Re: Change of suspension

I was out riding in front with 2 Panigale 1299Ss today, it was a bloody fast ride keeping ahead of them, (i had the radar detector, so they didn't want to pass me) i push the bike hard, i was in Sport power, and Sport with luggage SUS setting, the bike is still soft, it takes a few hits that go righ...

Re: 40 T rear sprocket

it shouldn't effect the warrantee, its really easy to fit, i got my black steel 40 tooth sprocket of eBay. its smooths out the gear changes, makes 6th more useable, 120Km plus, you do use a little more gas, but because 6th is useable it helps. took me 15-20 mins to fit, mine went on easy, the more K...

Re: New 2016 SDGT

Ive fitted a rear 40T sprocket. and i like it, seems to help the quick shifter smooth out. The GT corners bloody well for a tourer, its so easy to remove any chicken strips, 4500Ks on these roadtec 01s, very happy with them, especially the front.

Re: New 2016 SDGT

14500Kms on mine so far, and no problems what so ever, some have found the suspension harsh, and not working as it should, mines ok, it took about 5000Kms to free up, but I'm happy with it now. the forks seem to take a bit bed in, they weep for a few 1000Ks, other than that, theres nothing to report...

Re: It quit...but did refire!

You got to learn to pull the clutch in. :D probably just one of those odd glitches you get from time to time. The V4 Tuono Factories suffered from this, and needed a remap to solve it.

Re: Thoughts on new tires

I was running the factory recommended pressures, 36 PSI front and 42 PSI rear. The rear was wearing normally. I would have tossed on some Angel GT’s, as I’d read that others said it had transformed the handling and made it feel more nimble. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro Pressures seem right....

Re: My new GT!

@Aussie Dave - get well soon! It's definitely the Dongle - I pulled mine off to test. I find the suspension to be really good - better than my '14 SDR, and certainly more comfortable than the Tuono Factory I had a little while ago. I find it precise enough for me, while being comfortable overall - ...

Nice picture of a great bike... Cheltenham? Ive got one about 100 miles north of me... yours looks a lot more interesting :)
The Cheltenham pup in the back ground is an oldie but a goodie, and they have a lock up car shed where you can put your bikes for an over night stay.
