When the snow has gone, I'll get the bike out, take a couple of pictures and post.
I'd appreciate it.

Re: arrow mid pipe (cat)

The cat is an obstruction. You will have more potential for power without it. I am going to be doing a Rotweiler intake, decat mid pipe with the stock can. I am short on funds, and hope it will keep the dbs down. My buddy is going to build a map for me. If someone does the same mods the map should w...

Re: Second motorcycle to contrast the 1290?

if I could find a deal on a Monster 1200R that may have been my second choice to the SDR Said no one ever lol. VMAX if you’re short - maybe Tuono if you’re short(ish) - perhaps Nothing compares to the 2017/18 SDR or is remotely more fun to ride. Maybe some kind of blown bagger, but that’d just be m...

Re: Second motorcycle to contrast the 1290?

Lol, I like the 1200R. It isn't my first choice, but was in the top 3. Tuono Factory was the other. To be honest all my shopping was only done to reinforce my decision for the SDR. I went to a Yamaha dealer and told him I wanted the KTM, and to give me a deal on an FZ10 to talk me out of it. He said...

Re: Second motorcycle to contrast the 1290?

Go ahead and buy the tuono, you know you want it, it stole the show this year in every shootout and I think the Italians have figured out how to get more than 20 mpg out of that motor! personally still reading to many problems over on that site tho they seem to get better every year. I like the Tuo...

Re: Full Akro vs. Akro Slip-on and Arrow mid pipe

Check out these bags. Don't know how they interact with an Akrapovic, but they tick all of my boxes. If I buy saddlebags this is what I'll do.

It also does a good job of redirecting the wind blast from your stomach to around your helmet with no buffeting. Definitely keeps you from fighting against the blast which can get tiring.

How tall are you?

Re: Puig windscreen

Huh, I thought it was pretty good. The bike looks better without it, but of the options I liked this one the most. I will only be using it for extended rides, mounting is only two bolts.

Re: Slip Adjustment

If the tc is enabled and you are in track mode you have the option of 1-9. 1 being the least intrusive. When you are looking at the main screen (speedo/tach etc) push the ip and down arrows. You can adjust the slip on the fly.
