sd parts

i bought it with the fender done already,but i think its a tail tidy ?,the eliminators are already in with the akra map.I have ordered a 40t sprocket,gold chain,carbon rear fender,bar risers,and i found the part number for the r tail section and my dealer said its available,but its about 700.00 !.i hope to find a carbon front fender but the ktm one is way too expensive.then hand guards,and frame sliders,i think that should do it

Just swapped my oranges for some anthracite grey, the stealth color.

I like the anthracite Dukes. Mine (which is on order) will be orange.
Here's a pic from www.superduke.net of a nice anthracite edition.
The Carbon Leos look good!

So I rode the SD to work today. It was such a clear, sunny day I couldn't resist. Let me tell you, I495 in January is one cold ride but it was worth it to do something enjoyable when you have to work on a Saturday. Along the way is one of the twistier roads in the area (aka Georgetown Pike on the VA side of the Potomac). The SD handles so well it almost makes it boring. With the SD you feel like like the speed limit should be a posted 70MPH instead of 45MPH. Not much else to say. Sorry for the rambling. Just thinking of Spring and how much fun riding the Super Duke will be when it's not so cold outside.

Right now I'm trying to decide on which exhaust system to go with for the SD. I like the look of the Akra Evo's and the durability of Ti but the price of the carbon Yoshimuras is a lot easier to justify. Believe it or not I have a significant other that loves riding the SD with me. The one complaint she's had is the heat rising off of the exhaust. I've heard carbon is the coolest running exhaust you can get but I'm wondering if it's enough of a difference to choose it over Ti?

Thanks,

Sean

To tell you the truth, riding here, living here in general, isn't all you might expect. The roads are in horrible condition and there are only a few that are really worth riding on. The most fun, i.e. twistiest ones, are generally through residential areas so you are taking pretty significant risks any time you open it up while there. Over all, I am looking forward to leaving here in a few months.

Where are you in NoVa Sean?

Hey DarkWing, just in case you haven't met him yet, the guy who started this thread, Bald Kirk, sold his SD to move to Hawaii, just in case you guys haven't bumped into one another yet.

He said the same thing about the roads as you did, said a DRZ SM would be the ideal ticket for Hawaiin riding.

FMF woes

Any of you guys with the leo or FMF having issues with the rear wheel rubbing?

Another buddy broke his from constant rear wheel bashes. The akros sit a little wider and don't have any clearance issue on mine that I can tell.
