    there is a connector behind the headlight, where you must connect the grips - the menu will then automatically pick up the grips and provide 4 settings (Off, Minimum, Medium, Maximum)

    I wonder if the grips have anything special in them, or if it would be possible to plug an aftermarket grip heater in and get the same response.

    No I don't think so - each grip is 10.7 Ohm and they are connected in parlel, so the bike sees about 5.5 Ohm and I'm assuming then supplies the grips with different voltages depending on the heat setting

    the daytona's have 2 settings
    start (very warm) and normal (warm)
    had them on my other 950
    good stuff
    but what do you eave out since no need for the controls of the daytona grips if you connect them to the menu...

    I've always taken mine off the center stand before getting on..


    - Something I WONT miss from the BMW.. :D


    It will provide some vibes but in a good way.. ;)

    Go for the wings, I cannot comment on how much I love this exhaust, With no baffle in its louder than any other bike I've pulled up next too
    The heat issue unfortunately isn't fixed by the exhaust, It doesn't bother me too much though it only gets warm when stopped at lights/intersections..
    The video doesnt do it justice on how loud it is.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWYWVJMhon4

    Maybe his mrs is fat? LOL.. I'm a good 95kg and my mrs is 50kg and over jumps and everything the suspenion was fine with no bottoming out..(except the whinging for not warning her ;) ) I can tell you the suspension is 1000% better than any BMW

    Could be worse...we could be in Norway ;)



    *( I think it was Norway that pays the most for KTM's that I have seen...I could be wrong!)

    Discounted pricing? Promotion? I saw 4 of them at the same price OTD give or take a couple hundred euros.
