    ebrew, Have you gotten a chance to ride the bike after the Termi install? I'm very curious about your impressions.
    It's been my experience that a full system can make a big difference in the character of a bike. But, I've been reading quite a bit and have come across a couple of bad reviews of the Termi (bad fueling and mufflers coming apart).
    I'd rather get the Akrapovic but the Termi will ensure my warranty. I used to not worry about warranty but with a bike this expensive it sure adds piece of mind.

    I have no complaints about the system as of now
    It’s no akro for sure in quality but it’s not bad. I did call a few people about the system ( boulder Motorsports specifically ) and the guy I really trust told me they have come a long way.
    I really did look at the rapid bike akro set up very hard but just did this at the end

    I will ride the bike for a few years and on to the next I’m sure :) so ...........

    It does sound nice and not too loud, it does pop a bit on decel

    Did it make a difference in the performance? or just the sound?
    Are the can shaped bumps in the tubing cats?

    I ride regularly with someone with a 2018 Pikes Peak without termi, I have a 2019 with termi, between our 2 bikes, its 100% clear the fuel mapping on the termi is better. His bike nearly shakes apart at low RPMs in what seems like a poor fuel mapping.

    Performance, its not noticeable, 14 lbs weight reduction and no cats, there is definitely some increase, but given the bike is stock @ 158hp, its hard to feel a 2-5% dump in HP IMHO

    First track day on the pikes peak went well. Rear tail light came out easy, 4 bolts and 1 connection. Fuse for headlight no problem but I couldnt figure a solution for the front turn signals other than lots of tape. 0923191730b~2.jpg 0923191101_HDR.jpg 0923191730_HDR.jpg

    Well, I've had my 1260S Touring for just over a week. I just absolutely love this bike!
    I've gone on 2 two hundred miles rides I've been to VERY tight mountain curves (no chicken strips).
    Getting the full exhaust put on Wednesday!

    Two more track days along with the speed triple RS.

    Multi holds its own even on a smaller track. The turn in is so fast on this bike, it's just so easy to ride for its size! 1014191023.jpg 1016191942a.jpg 1016191944.jpg FB_IMG_1571049404847.jpg

    I don't see anything different except BNG. Am I missing something?

    BNG and comes standard with a couple additional accessories vs the 1260S (Electronic Fuel Cap and aux lights from what i understand).

    aside from changing the forward angle what else about the seat? Soft? Firm? Cut out center for your junk?
    The seat is about the only thing I don't like about this bike.
