Damn.

Butt dyno tells me that the bike pulls really hard.

Very happy with the Gen 2 re-flash.
Now I'll be biased when I get mine back.

Already getting shit over in the Utard thread how I didn't have bike to ride this last weekend.
I thought a KLR ass whooping would make them blush to much.

They said if I had a BMW or a Katoom I would be riding. All I could say was my son
borrowed my trailer to pick up some dry wall. This recent posted photo came in very handy.

Well, I got the piston back in, it was easy once I pushed it so far out that it popped out and shot brake fluid all over my lap and tools. Oh yeah, that's also the bad news...one bent C clamp handle and two bent fender washers later... Thanks for the tips.

Thanks
I got the Altrider Crash bars and the Altrider top rack and I am very happy with them. They have really good service; they answered all my questions promptly prior to making my decision.

Fortunately I have not had to "test" the crash bars.

I ride around in TC1 and Touring mode. No engine mods, no nothing has been done to my bike besides panniers skidplate, and lower pegs for the pillion. I love my bike the way it is.

I'm with you I love my bike the way it is

It sputtered and stalled off idle all the way to Prudhoe Bay

Had the best of time and didn't need no clutch mod

These guys are sounding more and more like the BMW guys, always looking for some farkles to improve the bike but at least the BMW guys have a reason to try to improve


No I will sit back and wait for the fireworks

Yes.

I was happy with the Gen 1 re-flash so I was hesitant to have the Gen 2 re-flash done. Glad I did.

Can I get you some more milk for your toast?

Just kidding around. Everyone has a different style of riding and expectation of their bike.
If I was that power hungry I would be on a different brand. I just want what I have to run as
well as possible without sacrificing dependability.

Haven't you read all the posts? It runs perfectly just the way it is.

Anyone who believes differently is just whinin'.


Just look at Ray's dyno chart. A more linear torque delivery has never been seen.

Oh, and uhhh, that flat spot between 1800 and 2500...it's all in your head.

Yes, unfathomably different syle and expectations I have no use for T mode other than in stop-n-go traffic or a parking lot. The difference in 2nd gear acceleration is cavernous. Maybe some day when I 'grow up,' and maybe stop drinking so much coffee.

Got what? All I see is a big blue bike in the way. Is it the white picket fence?
