Re: Trackday preparation

Looking good, nice to read about your adventure.

Hopefully we make better choices as we get older - leading to less broken parts :lol:

I know it is not a race, but if the gear change is a big problem, maybe reverse the linkage so one up 5 down.

Re: Pandora's box - Kr1s

Thanks, its getting there. It's not fully finished yet.

I took the fuel cap off and checked it - works fine so maybe I was low on petrol instead.

I have G650 single, thankfully it has no fuel problems - very efficient bikes.

Re: First Impressions

Hi all Phil Would you believe I was watching that last night! I would have given 100 thumbs up but I don't have an account. Your one goes very well, and was well ridden without going bananas - I am only doing short "unofficial" shake down tests at the min, to see what falls off. Seems to go similar ...

Re: First Impressions

Some new words for me there Jan, not many Wallaroos here :P Soes = RGV? Agree on the character of the bike, I think maybe the weight is higher and we sit higher on the RGV leading to the stoppie - and maybe the sharper handling. KISS does not apply to the RGV - bit of a nightmare to do anything on, ...

Comparing it to TDR 250 and RGV vj21L with 22 barrels and pv's and TZR 3ma Early days and the bike is not finished or fettled yet.

Re: new to KR1-S

My opinion for what it's worth (nothing)

Keep your Aprilia.

The KR is nice, but it is an older design chassis, and without being kicked off the forum they have "straightforward engineering"

Park them beside each other and be amazed at the difference in build and design.

Re: Bodgers

Another one, RGV this time Fuel pipe used as a gear shift rubber. This one I think I like, much better than the usual insulating tape and alot better than nothing. http://i1001.photobucket.com/albums/af139/yamfan/DSC00726_zpsmmv9eyij.jpg Not so cool, http://i1001.photobucket.com/albums/af139/yamfan/...
