  1. I know this was beaten to death for the 02-09 group. Haven't seen much for the gen 8 bikes. I want the racing unit for multiple reasons. Obviously, more go juice would be great. Biggest reason there. I have an ixil exhaust and did flapper / snorkel, so I realize that I killed mid-range, but gained ear porn. Maybe I can get back a little bit of oomph that I lost. But also, though I despise hitting the TC button every time I turn the bike on, the dash now looks funny to me without the light on. But anywho, I wonder what dimsport uses to control TC. I've occasionally been able to lift the front now, but I'm not a wheelie guy and would eff up my forks or more, if I tried to do that. I ride 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year, even during lockdown lol. So this is a worthy investment for me. Anyone have insight on gen 8 peculiarities? Install, map suggestions, etc. I'll have to borrow the wife's laptop to hook up in the garage, but the nagging will be worth it.
  2. I have been bleeding mine more often than other bikes because of this as well. I also can touch the bar with the lever, but it does stop me so I can't complain. I switched to EBC HH pads to help a little, but it's still not there.
  3. Surprised noone has mentioned ixil. I think it's the sexiest. Sounds yummy too. Not as muscley as a delk, but damn nice, without baffles.
  4. I've been told stompgrips at the best for grip. But that they'll eat into your jeans if you're motgatt. The hydroturf works fine for me though. I am debating making them longer, because I only contact basically at my knee caps.
  5. Here she is so far. Finally got the trunk mounted. I had to fabricate considerable risers in order to leave the grab bars on, but it's not bad, I think. Uses the passenger seat key to remove, and I spliced in led strips to add running, brake and turn signals. It uses a 5 pin trailer connector. Night photos coming.
  6. Looks like someone intentionally ripped the bar out. Everything is fixable. I'd find the spacing, then look for a similar u bolt, with some flange nuts. You'll have to unstaple the cover and remove the foam. But with glue and a staple gun, it can be good as new, or better!
  7. Still new here, and browsing the archives. I don't see much love for hydro turf. To me, it's the cat's meow. I bought a roll a while ago and made a bunch for daytonas, as that was my bike of choice at the time. Moving up into the world of comfortable bikes, I still risk scratching the tank, and enjoy squeezing with my knees. So, these aren't perfect, but they'll do. If I can ever get my hands on a decently priced seat, I'll most likely chop off the useless front wings and add a little bit o grip.
