1290 S crap brakes

Apologies if this has been done before.

Anyone upgraded brakes/pads on their 'S' or 'R' 1290? 2017 bike. Very poor brakes indeed! They work fine but the lever pull required is definitely not one finger!

Cheers.

I'm using one temporarily until my warranty replacement arrives. Cant see one of these for the 990SMT?? Same as Superduke? I've fitted these and they look ...

Re: Buy barely used 990 smt "barn find"

HI I recently bought a low mileage bike. I've just spent over £100 on replacing the engine and other bolts. They corrode and ruin the look of the bike. It had been bought Jan 13 and sat in a damp-ish garage. So there are garages and garages if you get me. The bike? I just can't believe how great the...

Re: Akrapovic for 2012 990 SMT

I've contacted him. 650 Euros for the pair. Quite a bit cheaper, but he has said the pipes are only 400mm long....Factory silencers are 550mm long from the screw on plate bolted to rear of silencer. This would make the exhausts look 15cm shorter!! That would look odd I think. Can anyone confirm what...

I've contacted him. Let's see. But Akra's looks better, marginally, I think.

Re: Rekluse autoclutch

I'm going to wish you hadn't told me about this :-( I've fitted two of these, one to an exc-f350 (a joy to have and use on a powerful off-road bike) and currently one on my Freeride 350, which suits the bike and the technical trails i like riding. It performs faultlessly. Off-road, when you need to ...
