Absolutely

Do you have a steering damper installed?, and did you change your suspension.
Thanks for your interest. I do have a steering damper on my Dommi outfit (behind) but have yet to find one for the AT. Rear shock is standard although I've fitted a Fournales Air shock to the Dommi and it's been so good that I'm now saving for one for the AT too. Front end will be first though, as it's really sagging and in need of uprated springs .I was planning on Hagon springs but I'm open to recommendations ?

Screws

Guys, does anyone know where to get the blue anodized screws that go in the front for holding the windscreen. I had one vibrate out on the last trip.

I found the last set of anodized well-nuts at Cycle Gear in N. Cal. Built for the GSXR crowd but will still work on the ATs. Made in the UK, I think

rich mixture

Hey guys, I like ride my AT hard and usually blip the throttle when dropping gears before entering a bend. I tend to notice that i'm getting "carb farts" little explosions which sound like they are coming from my airbox. could this be due to a rich mixture?? could the "carb farts" be due to high revs of a V engine?? am i gonna F$%K my baby up?

you could try a carb sync or you might check the carb membranes(only if you have a very high fuel consumption )
