TCS must be Off, at 120+ there is allready substantial rearwheel slip, at 160 the difference between front and rear is about 20 km/h, at 200, the beckwheel rubs off abusive amounts of rubber, and my inkling is the TCS throttles a bit down, like it does when riding in loose sand...

Don't forget that my speedometer is off by about 10kmph, at 200kmph maybe more. I ride at an average of 140kmph, 200kmph is plenty fast for me, plenty fast. BTW Yamaha does make crotch rockets too, just in case you want to break the 300kmph barrier

(sorry for the hijack)

And i'm disrupting it now too, yes i know...
Hi R3B ... the process is very simple ... over a thin layer of fiberglass mat in the mould you apply the carbon mat with the appropiate catalyst and then the lacquer ... maybe some other secret ingredients kept by the artist painter ...

I think the comment from Rema was meant for you

Ask this question in the general thread - you'll stand a better chance of getting answer AND you won't clutter this thread with general conversation...

SS braided brake and clutch hose lines

Does someone know if a known brand of stainless steel braided hose lines is making them for the XT1200Z? ... couldn't find one in UK such as Hel or Goodrich ... any help is accepted.

Any updates on service manual sources? I'm looking for a legitimate manual and am willing to pay full price. The only reference to a service manual in this thread is to the bootleg copy at XT660.com. I don't like paying people for something they've copied illegally regardless of price...and it's pretty clear they're making a profit.

Thanks.
