Tuesday morning, Feb 2nd, was overtaken by an MT-09 with black tank holster. About 7.30am on the SLE near TPE heading towards Kranji.

 

Cheers dude - I was on the MT-09 (going slow - only 12 points to go then nooooooo more driving license).

Oh dear.

Terrible news.

Could anyone of us riding a bike.

RIP, so sad for their family.

 

At midday I rode past a traffic accident on Admiralty Road West, the cops closed a lane as a bicycle was badly mangled under a truck. Loads of cops but no sign of the rider but it didn't look good at all.

Have got my Maxton NR4 Rear Shock fitted, set the sag to about 10mm as per Maxton's advice. Haven't felt the need to alter the damping settings (set at the workshop in the UK).

 

What a difference, the rear feels much more planted to the road and has raised the rear as its not squatting as when when I get on (I am almost 100 kilo). Quite a lot firmer, in a different world of damping compared to the stock item The feedback through the tyre is great. No more bouncy, bouncy.

 

Looks very cool too!

This morning I had the bike in for service at Yamaha and the remapping of the ECU.

 

After picking it up and riding home, about 10km, my thoughts:-

 

Launching from a stand still. Oh, I don;t like this. launching from the lights the power which instantly kicked in has now been tamed. Giving it a flatter feeling to before.

Pick up at low revs once on the way after a slow launch. Great improvement in the corners, now able to to drive off the throttle alone without having to slip the clutch.

Power delivery once on the move and accelerating hard. Seems to have more of a kick now, this maybe the need to feed in more throttle at the launch to get moving as quick as before. Then the revs rise quite quickly after 4k and off she goes like a good un.

Cruising in higher gears but closed to 15% throttle opening. Definite improvement here, nowhere near as much snatch as before, so this is welcome.

The bike doesn't feel to have lost any power but the launch from stand still has suffered, guess I will just have to used it to and open the throttle more.

 

Done 6k on the bike now. Tyres are now Michelin Pilot power 3 (the OE bridgestone rear got a big gash in it).

 

All going well and still a bit of a mad bike. Thanks Yamaha!

 

By the way, saw the new R1 in the showroom today, really small and compact, looks awesome. Going on what I have read in Fast Bikes Mag on the launch test ride, it appears Yamaha have a winner here.

This then inspired me to ride home via Mah Pte and started drooling over a V4 Tuono, Street Triple R, Speed Triple R, Aprilia RSV4,

 

Quite a nice day all in all.

I think I saw your bike at the FI machine... :)

 

Sent in mine for the 1st service... great to hear that remapping helped with the snatchy throttle

 

I went for another route though... ordered Kev's O2 fix and will share finding when delivered

anybody want to share what they did to help the suspension?

 

stock settings are horrible, soft and wobbly front end, but so far I've added preload (front +1.5 turns, rear+1 click), and rebound damping (front +2 clicks, rear +1 click), and it's much improved, but not completely satisfactory.

 

Going to add more preload and damping. 76 kilo rider (fully suited) + rear box.

 

What have others done?

Me abt 85 with gear

 

Current setting:

 

Front - 3.5 lines visible... rebound 0.5 turns out from full

Rear - 6 out of 7... rebound 0.5 turns out from full

 

Still fine-tuning it... this setting @ corner a bit choppy at the tail... maybe will go back to 5 out of 7

 

I tried 3 lines visible in the front 1 day... front became too light

 

Had mine since Feb.. still getting used to it
