Re: brisbane area & beyond - day after termorras termorra

Ahaaa.......my Optus prepaid usb has decided to connect to the infernal net... :shock: Shit, this has been a pain on top of other pains for the last 3 weeks.......but it seems to have fixed itself, after I've run every wizard and blundered around every setting i could think of......and phoned the lo...

Re: New Superduke GT owner experiences.

Cheers NZDave...... was wondering why you were more quiet than usual (though my USB infernal net connection has been un-cooperative since 23 oct.......latest advice from Optus tech was that all 6 towers in my locality were 'under mtce'.... :lol: ....??? ;) ). Anyway, it just started working 10mins a...

Re: My new GT!

Hmmm, my 2017 GT doesn't have that....... must be the Dongle that adds that extra line...... so ow's it go in race damping? Isit fully stiff and hard or does it have good compliant damping? I have had mine in 1+lgge almost from new and used comfort when it was really fresh (other settings were just ...

Re: Puig windscreens for SuperDuke GT in US?

Cheers Mick, the taller screen is probably not that big a deal unless you have brutally cold or wet weather to slosh around in. I put my oem clear screen back on for the Aussie summer...... the tinted Puig deflects air at my forehead (I'm about 5' 9.5") in the lowest position - that creates some 'no...

Re: My new GT!

Welcome to the crew....... the GT gets better and better as the miles tick by too! Mine was only starting to scrub in after about 3k kms.....getting better after 7k kms, and now at 10k kms it is fully settled with nice compliant suspension (on street), ...... and all of it's 150rwhp available... :D ...

Re: Cleaning Dust Boots

Yep, they take a bit to carefully pry them away from the fork, but once they begin to move they will pull down by hand. I spray some cleaner/lube into the boot and work it up and down......prob should use my fork seal cleaner tool :lol: but this clears the gunk and I wipe the mess of the fork tube a...

Re: New Superduke GT owner experiences.

Oh gawd, so that's ow it feels when u it '60'..... :shock: Well, maybe not.......it's just that on my click over date I happened to be flattened by lower back pain (no, not from the Gt.....) and other weird feelings that might also be connected to that back stabbing pain. Anyway, first ride yesterda...

Re: Difficulty finding neutral

Well-l-l-l-l..... it does get better, but even with 10k kms on mine I don't get neutral every time - but I just rock it a bit or clutch it a couple of cm's and out it slips. It's a Euro twin so it's probably never going to be as slick as a Jap gearbox (though I can clunk my CBR1100xx's cogs if I'm n...

Re: Heated seats / Fuel 95 RON ? .. or some benefit from BP Ultimate 98 (Australia)

Cheers Mark, I'm assuming the cyclops LED is a replacement bulb unit.......I tried some of that type on my lovely red Caponord1200 and discovered that they are worse than oem halogens because the reflector lens is not designed for their focal length centres...... well that's my theory anyway, but at...

Still, it looks good even if it is a tad bigger than the actual headlight....... I'm happy with it ;) It w...

G'day MarkLH...... from humid and showery Brisbane (it must be a weekend..overcast..threatening... :( ). I mostly use 95 - Shell or Caltex...... when I've had to use BP98 (country QLD seems to be BP territory) I've had the feeling that the GT likes 95 better.......but that may be down to what is add...
