Well she'll be home tomorrow afternoon so I'll see then. The fairing have been trimmed back. Semi sleeper as I need the rack cos use it as a daily vehicle haha. Already widened, lot lower than standard. Low profile tires etc. Which I need to get balanced now she a bit more lively. Therein lies the problem finding someone who can balance quad tires locally :-\

Mental note, let revs drop a bit.... Don't shift like it's a 250cc anymore haha. Pulled my arms out there sockets. Power progression 3rd and upwards is so smooth but still pulls like a train. Whole new way of riding with an engine that thinks below 3000rpm is pointless and argues with ya........ Them brakes don't have have a kick too. Few little tweaks to personalise it but yeah. Holy cow. She's frisky lol

Just a short one, you get the idea. Not quite at clutch ripping comfort level with her just yet.

Looking good. I’m still trying to get used to the power range and not letting it rev too high as the back wheels just spin up and if it happens mid corner I end up drifting. So much fun just need to get used to it.

Yup, normal riding it don't like under 3k but even when I'm feeling silly I shift at maybe 6k, peak power isn't until 7k lol. Lot to learn and change. Haven't had a huge issue with drifting or spinning up, repositioned my throttle hand, use to have it so full throttle was a natural position. Now I do more of a straight wrist at idle. Doing the engines first service today, just hit 700 miles overall
