Re: New owner

What is there to know? It's badass, and demands respect.

How does it compare to the Ducati?

Re: Replacement handlebars

I use a Protaper "CR Mid" bend from their Contour line, and am pleased. I believe the hight is about the same with less sweep. Give them a call, the guy I talked to was helpful. Make sure that the bar has enough room for the controls before the diameter increases. As far a width, they feel natural t...

Re: headlight adjuster screw

It is just plastic, and I cross threaded mine. Had to get a new one, all good.

Re: 2017 Super Duke Race Prep

Nice to see you and the bike getting on so well. I am interested in your plans for the suspension. I have a 17 and find the fork a bit soft in tight stuff. If I do it I want to add preload.

Re: Help me pick next mod

Fwiw, you may want to look into handle bars. I have a 17, and the sweep was giving me carpal tunnel after a 200 mile ride. Went with a traditional dirtbike bend, and can't be happier. Leans me slightly forward, but no real weigh on my shoulders. I can take my hands off the bars without having to gri...

Re: Petrol octane booster!

I don't think it is necessary if the engine has stock compression. Octane stops the fuel charge from igniting prematurely. The higher the pressure/ compression the higher the octane is needed. I have read (no personal experience) that low compression engines can suffer from high octane fuel. The cha...

Re: Being an Adolescent

It always amazes me when someone talks ridiculous about bikes to me. Easy to spot a bull shitter. Than I wonder how many times in life the rolls has been reversed. 😳 I've talked shit more than I'd like to admit. Lol.

As much as I like my bike sometimes I wish I went black.

Re: Dyno Tuned\Upgrades

Thanks Fry. At this point I am thinking OFT. My reason is I have a solid mechanic and don't have a good relationship with my local dealer. The OFT should give my guy the freedom to do all the stuff dealer previously had a monopoly on. Now I just need to talk him into tuning with the OFT compared to ...
