what matt said. is less power than the last bit more light and flick able, so easy to move about.

it went in for some work today, and got a message saying the looms been hacked, but lee has fixed it and neutral light on and all sorted. Smile so not all bad

just need a front lambda sensor as its not reading, but might blank them as its apparently an upgrade.

but get it back tomorrow, ill give it a proper run Smile

They truly are awesome bikes, If i didn't have all the issues with my 950SM i would of kept it. Bags of poke, torque that never seems to fade etc. Now get some cans! thumbs

got it back, felt slow at first, put some fresh fuel in gave it a mile and went like shit of a shovel so i think it was old fuel, handles so well. only down side is i was over taking everything at 12mph lol, think the speedo sensor is playing up. but easy bolt on fix and common on the ktms

was gutted mike went to max it and it said 12mph was like dammit,

definatly doesnt have the top end power of the tuono, but the power is more useable, can still pull like a train from 30 in 6th where as tuono would need to be dropped in the gears. it is definatly flickable like a 600 but still has the power where you want it.

did keep hitting the limiter though as doesn't rev for so long lol.

crying out for a quick shifter!

quick shifter just means you will hit the limiter quicker, put a smaller sprocket on the bag to change the gearing slightly.

this has plenty of torque dick, pulls in higher gears well. tuono had more in the statistics, but this kind of handles it better.

and no i like it bouncing up the revs so quick Wink
