My speedo reads about 10% high, so if you are increasing wheel speed for any given engine speed, I.e. fitting a smaller rear sprocket, you do have a margin to work with and might even end up with a more accurate speedo.
I get it. I just think the OEM guards look a bit crap, and don’t work either. I think my bike looks better with no hand guards, but if I have to have them for riding in cooler weather, and I am a bit of a wimp, I’d rather have a set that work.
I wouldn’t ignore the front, but a spring change and new oil is cheap and good enough for me. I have a hyperpro rear shock and fork springs and it transforms my 2017 Tracer. It’s no perfect and fork cartridges and an Nitron or Ohlins shock would be better though twice the price. I can live...
Glad your mod worked. I’ve tried wearing cycling shorts, and a pair of undershorts supposedly designed specifically for motorbikes and neither worked. It’s kind of strange but I can be out cycling for 4hrs and not get a sore arse, whereas 2hrs is enough on the Tracer. Maybe I should graft a...
I replaced mine with Allen screws. I carry a key in case I ever need to adjust the screen. Also fitted Nyloc nuts on the end of the screws so that I’m less likely to screw them right out if I adjust the screen.
Mine is the same. When I changed the gearing on a previous bike I fitted a Yellow Box correction device, it was wired into the sensor circuit. Google might help you.
Personally I just live with the error and adjust the speed in my head.
Bought my Tracer for similar reasons, the GS was just getting heavier every year, or was I skipping the necessary gym sessions. 😉. I also thought about a KTM but I’ve had one before, nuff said. It’s a learning experience, even more than Ducati ownership.
I know you prefer not China but there seems to be lot of steering damper mounts for the MT09 at low prices from China. I’ve bought a couple of accessories: sidestand foot and screen extension, from Chinese ebayers and the quality has been good and value outstanding. I’d give it a go, anythin...
That sound like something that could affect any bike, though I’ve never heard of it before. There must be something wrong with either the pads or the callipers? Out of tolerance? Worn pad backing, or has someone filed the pads thinking that they were too tight?
