and if it isnt set right it will change your chassi dynamics and make it feel like your front end is light,and not planted,,,,just say'n.
I put in the appropriate super plush rear spring a few weeks ago. Sag is in a good place...

exhaust questions

Does anyone know if the fmf ti q4 exhaust really needs repacking?
The instructions say every 20 hours. That seems really low, more like for a 2-stroke.

Is the high-temp silicone really needed? If so, which one? There so many.

I searched the exhaust thread, no dice...

Ack! Sorry for the questions...picking the bike up today !!

Why are you posting on here at 11. The dealership opened at nine...

I can guarantee that I will be scratching on the front door of the dealership at 9:55 on Wedensday...

And why have you not posted any pics yet.

I did not like the 606 on the front at all really. On, or off road. Off road it wants to pull the bars out of my hands at the slightest hint of a rut. On road they felt squirelly, once it broke in I could tolerate it.

The 606 has been good for me, but I run a Scotts damper.

Oh man you're calling me out!
Well, I had real life stuff to do....forced family fun..Easter weekend...glad I have a smart phone to pass the time.
Now for my true religion (j/k .... ...well, kinda) ..here it is!



So first impressions from a former GS rider:
The hydraulic clutch is like butter. OMG!
Brakes are great. Crushed my nuts.
Nice power. Got up to 90mph quick.
Nice gearing for the dirt, coming from my GS.
Love the ergos sitting and standing! I don't need risers. Nice wide footpegs.
Vibrates more than my GS. Hard to see in the mirrors. I knew this already when I bought the bike.
Light, confidence inspiring in the dirt (well in my backyard and some construction site).
Fun! I had a smile on the whole time.
This is my tallest and lightest bike. It fits me fine.
Lots of nice, small things that make this bike something other than a parts bin special. Wave rotors, for example.
I'm going to love this bike!

Something I learned from the dealer: better to wait until after the break-in to change out the filter and exhaust.

Ok Kirkster....now you're up!!!

Can't wait to go drop mine in the mud...
