Re: Hold on 2017 SDR release?

& your 100% sure your TC is off? The bike has to be running in order to take it off. When I 1st demo-ed mine the owner keyed the bike on. Hit the button to take the TC off then he started the bike. Not being familiar with the dash myself I assumed the TC was still off. I was disappointed. Thinking, ...

Re: Geez, I've had no "teething problems"......

GT is a fantastic bike to ride , but if you say you have got no problems either you are lying or you are the luckiest person in the entire world. so far I have some warranty jobs, some quality mistake jobs from my dealer. at 5000 miles, my battery is dead, the had a throttle problem, throttle bodie...

Re: Dealer Activating LED Accessories?

^^^ A guess a resistor is like a choke, & a diode is like a check valve. & yes I have wrecked a Multi meter. I don't recall the arse being blown out :) Ill try & make sence out of the rest later. I was quite surprised the SDR didn't need one of the resistors they sent. They are huge. http://i.imgur....

Re: Dealer Activating LED Accessories?

See, your very knowledgable on this. That makes sense. Possibly why the owner had the resistors on the Rizamos,, I don't know? Old mate wasn't 100% wrong talking about impedance and resistance, because we all know you can't measure the resistance of a diode, right? ^^ Funny. I sure don't. But you c...

Re: supension setup question

Gimlets #s are different then what mine were B4 I put the Cart kit in. Close though. I had my compression side set to 6 clicks from fully closed. I was trying to keep the front forks from bottoming when braking. As I said earlier. I don't think my compression side of my fork worked. I wish I would h...

Re: Confused about exhaust options

^^ Thx
That's kinda what I had in mind. Longer tho with small holes 1/8 at the end working up to 1/2 holes near the tip of the exhaust. Its worth a try.
This one wasn't shipped with a insert. The one that is suppose to go in the mid pipe. Did you try running yours with the insert & DB killer?

Re: supension setup question

Im not your weight. And I installed the Andreani cartridge kit. Experiment. Close the rebound a few clicks on the fork & shock. Having said that. When I removed my forks I did the pogo stick test B4 I installed the Andreani's. The compression side of the fork had no difference that I could feel from...

Re: Dealer Activating LED Accessories?

Also thought the info on Dealer activation made sense. How so? Makes none at all to me, even if there is some bullshit reg that says it needs to "comply"... I was agreeing with U. Taking my bike in to have a dealer activate my flashers would have blown me away. I avoid the dealership if possible. I...

Re: Any reliable SD-GT's out there?

Excuse me for my ignorance on the GT. But I have to ask a question on the suspension. Can U not fine tune the settings? Cant the compression & rebound be fine tuned in each setting? I like the way I can adjust the C/R on the old Multi with the Ohlins. Can even electronically set the rear pre-load. H...

Re: Jumping the Gun

^^ I scrapped some of the paint off. It says Molson Canadian ;) Ya I suppose. A friend warned me of the same. Still snow, sand & gravel on these roads. I wont get to test the heat factor for another month, unfortunately. They are well made, but no better then the Akra or Arrows ive had on other bike...

Re: Confused about exhaust options

^^ I do have a couple sound clips from my phone. I did a B4 & after. Its hard to tell the difference from the video sound. But I guarantee its LOUD. The mid pipe was suppose to be shipped with a insert in the Link pipe. I am assuming the insert is like a baffle & would have reduced the noise. There ...

Re: Hold on 2017 SDR release?

Glad to see it hasn't been just me. I said f it and got a 2016 "used" with 240 miles for $15,800 and used all the extra money to get goods. My local dealership quoted me $19,800 for the 2017 but I decided I was better off being a bit more financially sensible. So I got the 16 orange and white. Bodi...

Re: Confused about exhaust options

Well. I received the AR Hi-Slung exhaust late today. Just installed it. B4 I installed it I weighed the Akra & Arrow Cat delete with DB killer, Just over 9lbs. The AR with DB killer installed was ruffly 4 lbs lighter. Sadly this pipe is too loud. Even with the DB killer. I do like the look of it tho...

Re: Dealer Activating LED Accessories?

Well, this was a interesting read while I had my morning tea. I thought the FAIRY lights comment was funny. Also thought the info on Dealer activation made sense. Ive never had to use a resistor on any bikes. But I see where the original owner of my Multi added some on the Fairy lights he installed....

Re: Confused about exhaust options

If I had to do it again I would definitely be tempted by this.

Especially if there is no gain(except for weight loss) by removing the CAT.

Re: feedback on Rapid Bike?

I had one on a 2007 998 monster. You don't hear much about them anymore.
Easy install, just like the rest of them. Figuring out the rest was a PITA. Im sure they have improved from 10 yrs ago.
Why not use Dynojet ?

Got the bike and still not sure what to do. Tried it without the stock pipe and seemed ok in the canyons but a bunch louder pulling out my garage and putting around my neighborhood, way louder than I thought it would be. Problem is I want more power!!! :shock: I already have a rotty airbox in trans...
