Ride the GT. Your m8 will be smiling down at you and he would appreciate it .👍

Im defiantly taking the GT, I've just finished washing it, will give it a polish tomorrow before the funeral. My mate that just died has a 690R SM, a 990 Super duke, and 2 weeks back he brought himself an 821 Ducati hypo motard. Even tho he was terminally ill, he had confidence he would get better, sadly he never got out of the hospice, and never got to ride his Ducati. Going to be a very sad day, i did a lot of track days with him, and we rode the forgotten highway on our motards many times, and had lunch and a beer at the Wanga pub. enjoy your bikes guys, you just never know whats around the corner in life.

I’ve never reved it out in top gear seen 142mph and it was still pulling like a train. I changed the front sprocket before I removed the cat, but did notice an improvement in low rev running after cat was removed.
If you check gearing commander it’s not much diff from 16front 38 rear than 17front 40 rear so not as much as 3 teeth on the back.
The bike will now pull along at 60 mph plus in top gear without judder and even 45mph in 5th gear .
30 mph through towns in 4th all without judder.
I may try the 17 on the front again with the decat done but I think all round it’s easier to drive now as is.
I’ve just ordered o2 removal kit from eBay not rotty as I’m a cheapskate😂😂 so will see if it’s any different.
I’m going to leave the sas kit for moment with just the canister removed.
Probably won’t get much more use this year as winters coming fast but I’ve managed 5k miles since may so all in all been a good year.
I had a chuckle to myself said I wouldn’t tinker or mod the gt after I spent a fortune doing so on my smt but this forum just causes you to do things😜

I think I may try the sprocket too. I hear you regarding the mods! I said I wasn't going to modify my GT. Yeah right! People seem to swear by rotty, so I'm going with them.

The sprocket seems a popular choice

I put a rotty style filter on my smt but to do it right you need a power commander and custom map!
On the gt I can’t get my head around how this works when you change from sport to street etc, if the map is Dyno tuned for sport it can’t be right on street ? Am I missing something?
I had 2 maps on my smt with a switch to change but that’s too much on the gt.

Wish the factory would come out with a map for the GT like they did for the 1290R, that map made huge difference to the R, it turned Sport into an angry child.

Idk, if you turn off traction control on the gt it gets pretty hairy...

Showed me some maps of 1290sdr with akro made 159bhp these are rwhp figures thought these would be putting out more? My main reason to do this was for peace of mind that it wasn’t too lean. Looking at the af ratio it slightly lean from 3600 to 5700 but nothing to worry about.
