Im curious as to why your curious but hopefully this info is of some use to you

Oh I'm on the same bike, with the stock throttle setup, and I can get the bike into a right old tiz in first and second gear (fairly easily). Obviously the throttle cam makes all the difference as has been suggested 'everywhere'.

Working on a new video recording setup on my KTM 950. Here is test #2. I am not posting this to YouTube due to the drop in quality (also, I race cars and hit triple digit speeds several times). Sadly, my old laptop can't really handle the video editing, so the the transitions are junk. Video is a normal DivX file playable by VLC and many others.

WFO.... love it!

You've got excellent clutch control! I really appreciate you posting this, it was a valuable point of view. Seems like the balance point is juuuuuuuust higher than I've been going. Cool!

Thanks. I didn't really hit my balance point. The balance point likes to change depending on if I have full tanks or not and it screws me up. It's much easier to hit on empty tanks. And it's a lot higher up then you think.

Yup... always the case! How about some info on your camera setup?

I was not happy with any of the off the shelf helmet camera systems, so I rolled my own.



It lets me properly mic the bike so I can avoid the wind noise, it's power off the bike, and records to a USB thumb drive. With an 8GB thumb drive I can record for about 8 hours. It all fits nicely into my tank bag.
Now I need to get a faster computer for my post-production work.
