Mailed my ECU to 2WheelDyno today. Flashing is on sale and they're forum supporters, so that's cool too.

Parked her up, whilst I wait for some film and ceramic coating for paint protection. Note there are TWO RSes in these photos...

Is that a street or speed triple? The speed triple had been quite appealing as well. It's slightly bigger in ergonomics than the street triple and i could fit on it quite comfortably.

Street Triple RS. One of the best motorcycles I have ever ridden. It's been to every single track in the South Island and held its head high.



Having said that, I will be tuning into the reveal of the new Speed Triple 1200 in 9 days. I'm hoping it has gone on a diet, gained power and they've increased the fuel tank capacity back to the same size as the Streetie i.e. 17 Litres.  :440:

Finally installed the 16 tooth front sprocket.  What a pain to get the 15 off   :138:  The difference in 1st and 2nd gear is amazing, and at 4,000 in 6th I am now going 70mph instead of 66.  The bike should have come from the factory with the 16

My wife and 2 daughters chipped in to get me the OEM heated grips for my birthday this coming weekend, so I did the recommended prep work. It's a bit of a mission, seat, side covers, tank, airbox and headlight all removed, and dug out the electrical supply connector from under the L/H side cover. Had an issue with the airbox, but I'll post that under another topic.





Glad I didn't have to pay a dealer/mechanic to do the job. But maybe they know some shortcuts.
