    Beter do a 1 tooth larger front sprocket, for longevity. Lesser turns for same amount of speed.

    ... and cheaper too. :) But that might change the ratio too much.

    +1/17th (guessing) is more than e.g. -2/42th.

    Agreed on the chain wear.

    Won't fit. Clearance is too tight.

    Did any of you mounted fog laps on the new SA S? I know that there's cornering, but still :)

    Btw @Pippen, have you found acc1 and acc2? I want to mount some fog lamps and I think I need to make the connection on acc2 :| allowing me to shut down the lamps as soon as the engine is turned off

    So Pippen, what is the highest speed you have achieved with the bike and how is the stability at high speed?

    Ooo, this is fun, still a bit cold and a lot of sand on the roads so you got to be careful out there...

    As a cnc programmer/machinist one of the small things that makes me smile is the handlebar mounts and hanguard links which have been machined from solid and hard anodized and not cut from some mass manufactured length of extrusion with a couple of holes and spotfaces machined into them, quality and detail.
    lovely.

    I still want to know if KTM has fixed the "Miles Remaining" value, i.e. if it's properly converted from km to miles now. Is miles an option for units in the SAS? Can someone check with a full tank how many miles are remaining if so?

    Did 230 km/h for a moment, but thats not the end of the line in any-means. Stability is good, no problems accure (just as with the Superduke). Also did just over 200 km/h with passenger without any concerns.

    Was there a issue? Miles is a option on the SAS. 390 km remaining with full tank, but that should be approximately 240 miles?? The numbers are rounded, thats for sure.

    No, because I didn't search for them again. To busy with working and sleaping and riding the thing. :D

    Did make a vid of my first ride on my restored 1973 Honda CB350F with a GoPro chestmount. Get some cool (but a bit slow) footage out of it.
    Shall try to make the same sort of video with the SAS this weekend and post it here.

    I highlighted this in an earlier message. Having filled up the tank 3 times , I've found it pretty accurate . c 5mpg difference in 220 mile range. Av fuel consumption showing at c46mpg (IMP) . Calculated it to be 44.8mpg on one tank.
