Let's hope not. Otherwise you're not doing it right.

Welcome Falcon

Congrats on the new bike. Picked mine up last week in white.

Waiting on my Altrider crash bars and skidplate to arrive as well. I actually went with Altrider as that is what Pluric uses, and all the cute girls say he knows what to mount.

Throwing caution to the wind I ride on terrible dirt and big, looooose gravel while wearing my Elvis cape. Have now bent in my shift lever twice from zero MPH drops, so I carry a hammer with me now to bend it back out...otherwise you travel home in first gear.

Ok, have any of you folks tried adding octane to see what, if anything, that would change?

ECUnleashe Gen 2 Re-flash

Got the ECU back from ECUnleashed and installed on the bike.

Damn.

Butt dyno tells me that the bike pulls really hard.

Very happy with the Gen 2 re-flash.
