    It's a bit louder than i'd like bit sounds good. I'll probably get a noise reduction Dbkiller.

    I'm thinking about upgrading to a bigger bike, i've done some 300+Km trips and find the gearing a bit short. But then the bike is so light an nice arround town, so i'll probably just get a 15t front sprocket

    My thoughts exactly! Did you encounter the 15T sprocket? I can only find one, from PBR.

    P.S.: Bem vindo! Portugal, caralho! :D

    Any leads on finding a 15T front sprocket? - - Just found one on motosport.com made by Sunstar... Apparently #36115 - Amazon carries...

    I'm just wondering if I should be searching for a 2019 model without ABS, since the sprocket change isn't recommended for ABS models?

    Last Update: I recalled a post I saw previously about sprocket replacement to reduce noise. They recommended JTF1321 and JTR1224 with DID gold chain.

    For me it doesn't make sense the ABS/sprocket thing.

    The ABS reads wheel speed from the sensor/ring combo at the wheel. I guess it does not uses the vehicle speed info form the gearbox speed sensor.

    Anyone with access to a wiring diagram can confirm my theory please?

    By the way, the PBR reps at the United States of America is Drive systems:
    https://www.drivesystemsusa.com/
    Maybe you can get the 15T PBR sprocket from them.

    The ABS unit has 2 connections to the ECM and the gearbox VSS also talks to the ECM. The ABS can generate an incorrect tire size error code. One way of doing that might be to compare VSS data and wheel speed sensor data. If the ABS unit is not seeing the data its expecting to see I suppose its possible ABS function could be compromised.

    Hey everyone, quick question. Got any recommendations for a quality tail bag that will fit a full face helmet? The videos I watched on tailbag reviews didn’t say at all which ones will fit a helmet, and I don’t want to end up with something that won’t be big enough.
    Thanks.

    I have a Nelson Rigg Commuter touring. Full extended it fits easily a full face helmet.
    I also use it to put my stuff to go to work every day.

    Would buy again the Nelson Rigg.

    They are some cheap short levers from Rezo. They work well, are adjustable and stable. I have small hands

    Be advised that the seat is a bit smaller that the base of the tailpack, but not an issue at least for me.
    Let me see if I can take a picture of it on the bike.

    Yeah, that passenger seat is kinda small. I’m good with it though.

    Sounds very good, just like a supermot, but be aware, you don't have boot's protection on the pipe (i burnt my shoes a little, and it's smelled very bad everytime, i had to brush it)

    I had been running my shock at full stiff on the advice of my long experienced neighbor, I weigh 193.

    Just for trial and error purposes, I backed it off two clicks. What a difference, it is now set correctly. I am able to lean the bike so much more aggressively and it holds the line so much better.

    There is a big curve near home that has perfectly smooth asphalt. I notice how well the bike sticks on this curve but not so much on the bumpy pavement in the canyons. The light bulb finally lit.

    I guess my neighbor would say it now has too much sag but it works and I'm leaving it that way. Advice is nice but thinking for ones self is nicer.

    I'm far from a beginner but it's the first time I've owned a bike where there is so many curves.
