Get a 1290 Superduke like I did. Nice v-twin that makes gobs of power, is fairly light, and also handles well. Rocket=tank. 48 = great look but everything else not very good.

Exactly my feeling. The only track day I did on my GSXR-1000 was so much easier than on my RC51. Lighter bike, more power, less shifting. I ended up selling the Gixxer and keeping the RC, though...

I put the Acerbis 5.3 on my 14 EXC 500. It fit fine. Only glitch is the back of the tank does not match up perfectly with the new 14 bodywork. Just a visual thing. The 5.3 comes with a new fuel out...

The stock end can on the 1290 is straight through, so a slip on does nothing performance wise.

I have also noticed that there are not a ton of posts lately about the 1290. Could be because not that many were actually sold. Who knows. My local KTM dealer has always has a least one 1290 on the...

I bought the 500 and have no regrets. I end up riding some highway to get to the dirt so the 500 works better for that.

I rode a friend's 600 during a track day and they are great for that. On the street they have no torque and need to be revved a lot to get power. Nothing inherently wrong with that, but I prefer a...

Sometimes the small rubber o-ring seal on the quick disconnect can leak under pressure. Turn the ignition on and check that connection for leaks. Also could be an injector stuck open.
