My sentiments exactly. I had a close call, and am thankful that it ended safely. I'm not racing. That is what i needed to realize.

Re: total loss

If you have the cash go new. The initial rush is over, and I bet you can find a deal. MSPR plus tax or less is my guess.

Re: traction control, How do you feel that it's kicking in? I have it set in Road mode, same as ABS. I'm pretty sure I pushed the bike enough for cause the skid of rear, but never really felt any intervention. Am I misunderstanding it? If you have the track pack you can play with traction control. ...

My rule of thumb is two rears to a single front, as far as wear.

Re: 2017 SDR Mods (Beast 2.0) - What have you done?

I am helping a friend sell a bike, and it will need a battery. I will put mine in his bike, and planned on getting a Shori, but the charger included sounds sweet.

Pikes Peak! They are racing Sunday, and KTM is making a real effort (factory support) with the SDR. This is the 1290s chance to prove it is "Ready to race". A road bike racing on a badass road. You can stream it live this year. Click the link. http://www.ppihc.com/updates/2017/06/22/cant-b...

Re: What to expect now, PCV and Stage 4 Intake Installed

Load the best map you can find, probably from Chris at Rottweiler. After that I would find a good shop with dyno experiance, and have them clean it up for "your" bike. With all you have put into the bike a custom tune is worth it.

Re: Hard 2017 sdr test

Maybe more resistance from the steering damper? I don't see it being an issue unless you are riding at a track pace.

This all hinges on if the track was clean.

Re: RSV4 guy thinking about joining your team

If I had a April dealer less then 8 hours away from where I am moving I would either keep my RSV4 or switch to a Tuono Factory for sure I never loved motor as much as I love the V4 but not having dealer support closer makes me think about jumping ship. If you dig the bike, and it isn't having probl...
