Re: Best. Wheelie. Ever. (Followed by the worst)

It was beautiful: a right turn off the green light, the rear slid out a touch under hard throttle, and then it grabbed and the front wheel came up. I wasn't even vertical after the turn, yet... MTC is still on so it all sorted itself out, but I was still pretty happy with my effort. :twisted: Not l...

Thank you! That's very useful. Let me repeat the tests with Metzler. Fry has a very good one, (if its the one with hose and bleeder valve). Yes, its the one with the hose and bleeder. Love being able to over inflate slightly and then bleed off an exact amount to get where I need to be. I'm glad I r...

Bonkers Shake Down Run Complete

I feel like sharing a ride report from my 75 Mile Shakedown run last night. The fucking bike finally blew me away; it finally is living up to the hype. I’m now at a point with this where I couldn’t ask for anything better, it’s fucking mental. Last night I was at the point where all of the parts I h...

I had read somewhere that the Evotech Sump Guard ould not work with aftermarket full exhaust systems.
