Loving the bike, I have an F800R at the moment. I want a year under my belt before changing but I am torn between a S1000R or a Truimph ST for my next one. First world problems lol!

Although the duke Supersport is also looking tempting with the additional wind protection hmmmm

Enjoy the bike

Cheers!

It is a great bike to be fair!! (I am going to say that!!) all the power of the supers, with the midrange power where it really counts it is a true naked street hooligan bike!! With the suspension from the HP4, frame, engine, brakes from the RR it is a great combo, cornering speed is amazing you can carry so much speed and still keep pushing it.

In it’s class you have the MT-10 also, but for me I had a Yamaha before and fancied a change of make.

Couple of more little mods done

Bar ends just to add a little more weight on the bars also some protection for the bars and exhaust hanger and plate for the rear foot peg, just leaves it a cleaner finish on the rear end. Next is levers (on order at the mo!!) and then pretty much done for me, get the run in done and filter will be changed out to let it breath a little more.

New levers arrived today and fitted. I like the short levers as they suit my riding style using one/two fingers.

I went Pazzo Racing cuey!

With the clutch lever they have to work the cruise control and quickshift mircoswitches and they are very delicate, you bend one of the metal fins and you are in trouble, you have to remove the peg from the standard lever and add it to the aftermarket lever, So they do have to be bang on with measurements.

I have heard good and bad with the Chinese levers, some have said they get a good set and others have said they are slightly off, the casting. Last three bikes I have had Pazzo’s and they are second to none in quality. Still a fraction of the price of the Giles and HP4 folding levers, BM want about £320-£350 for the HP levers.

Tried to stay with some good aftermarket parts when replacing, some might be abit more then other companies but had them in the past or had good reviews from lots of people and I don’t mind spending out abit more.

Wunderlich - BMW sell Wunderlich parts themselves
Evotech - used a lot before and found them well made with tidy and guards
GB Racing covers - regarded as good quality parts from the BSB racing teams using them
Pazzo - used before and never fail on quality

sounds good.... I've got Strada 7 on the MT.... looking at new ones for the RC over the winter... not sure what way I'm going to go...

got a few Chinesium parts coming for the Harley, so I'll see how good the quality is and decide from there...
