    Tires and pressures...

    It was your recommendation that got me to them, we talked about a while ago :) Trying to avoid going to the ABM high job, but will see how the Gilles do for my old wrists, need something...

    Tires and pressures...

    Interesting stuff Max, I also have been running the stock recommended pressures of 33-36psi, and always feel the bike is harsh on our bumpy pothole and rippled roads, though there are a lot worse out there, and mostly blame the stock suspension, but maybe some of it is the true pressures as you...

    Timing Chain Tension Noise

    gzo, how do you find that pipe.? Is it much louder than the stock.? I quite like the look of the stock one, but it would be nice to let out some of the tunes I know are in there :)

    Timing Chain Tension Noise

    I'm in the middle of the pirate racing video, He does a good job of the theory on this engine, and the size, hight and bore of 105mm goes a long way with the heat expansion, helps to understand what's going on, and why... Which exhaust pipe did you go with.? maybe I missed that...

    Timing Chain Tension Noise

    gzo, great result there, good on you for digging deeper and finding a solution, I find it incredible that these motors are so mechanical noisy, after being around for many many years, and much development, most of the time I ride with earplugs, so don't hear the music below, but the other day I...

    I think I'm too tall for this bike

    I agree your all black bulky jacket makes you look big on the bike, I'm 6ft tall, and had a 400 Ninja Kawasaki for a town bike, I felt big on that, and when I changed her out for my 701, a bit more bulk size on the bike was part of my reasoning, however if it makes you feel comfortable, just get...

    Super Cheap (Rainy Day) Project

    I'm thinking China knock off, but hey for that money its worth a play :D Keen to let out some more sounds on my 701, but not sure what to go with yet, I'm a big fan of Akrapovic, but the Vit one is big, and nearly $2,000 in my country, so don't think I will go there.

    701 ABS or Supermoto Modes

    Vintage Veloce, ok so I tried this, and yes, it seemed to turn off the abs, I was able to do back wheel skids on/with the brake, so far only tried it one time for a short run to the gas station, shall get to play more in the next few days, so now wondering if this disables the front abs also...

    Tire changes...

    MAX, That looks a great setup, now you got me thinking I NEED ONE LOL... I hate giving unmarked/undamaged wheels to the dealer and crossing my fingers they will come back in a similar state, and in a former life, I was a car tyre shop manager and fitter, an super fussy/ocd with it... Thanks for...

    Ride Pictures!

    Nice you finally got to ride again, I feel for those parked up for months on end while there is snow and very cold... I like the look of your SC exhaust, how are you finding it, and is it a rear can only or a full system.?
