STUFF TO KNOW

Performance Bikes (UK) - - CHEAP THRILLS -

HESD

Elec­tronic steer­ing damper is non-ad­justable and doesn’t suit ev­ery­one. It’s pos­si­ble to re­move it and re­place with an ad­justable part, but you will need a plug-in by­pass mod­ule or a flash to avoid an en­gine man­age­ment light.

CHARG­ING

Sta­tors get hot and both­ered, reg/recs blow as a re­sult (or in­de­pen­dently). A re­wound, up-specced sta­tor and su­pe­rior af­ter­mar­ket reg/rec is the cure.

2006 MODEL

More midrange, sharper ge­om­e­try, larger brake discs, 3kg lighter and shorter gear­ing. If you have an 04 bike, low­ered gear­ing, a lighter can and fit­ting the larger discs with caliper spac­ers would achieve the same.
