With the bike numpty not the wife:rolling:

p.s. I hate her she had the neighbor keep me talking about the bike as she ran and got togged up, she jumped on the bike and pissed off for a run

Dont know that this bike sharing is gonna work:doh:


Things ive noted already in 50 miles riding

The handling is sublime alone or with pillion but the missus says its harsh for her on pillion

The induction noise is mesmerising and sounds like a ferrari at full tilt

She goes over that easy im down to 10mm chicken strips already

5000 revs is teasing me as the induction noise starts there

The indicator switch is well fiddly and im finding it hard to switch off

The indicator dash light is so damn small im having trouble seeing it so a led mod to the top of the dash cowl is needed

The dash looks fantastic in the dark

I need a gear indicator [had this on my gsxr750 and really miss it]

The throttle action is a bit on and off although not as harsh as the 1130 i tried I will need to look at ways of easing this.[anybody know how?] Keep getting the feeling im throwing the wife off the back.

She came with a 190 rear section tyre and she does not fit in my homemade bike stand, so more joinery tomorrow

:ele: :ele: :ele: :ele: :ele: :

Congratulations there and i suppose i should send two Honourary Tees . When are the leathers being changed to suit the new scheme ?. Glad to see its been well liked and already your looking at its little foibles . Didnt it come taxed by the supplying dealer as your disc looks empty (no i'm not a policeman just noticed it looked empty)

Tuneboy and some tuning will help.

Although the 1130 ones I've been riding haven't been all that bad. At least when compared to, say, KTM Supermoto R, which I test rode recently. Much worse in that respect.
Check the chain tension, too, at some point. With the missus sitting on the bike.

:clap: Congrats Dynamo on the new CR. :clap:
Try taking up all (or most of it) the free play on the twist grip,throttle cables. I found this to help mine when I first got it. Also remapped and that also helped. Another thing is you get used to it and then hardly notice it. Same with the turn signal switch.
