In neutral, after the 30 min ride home and stuck in city traffic the idle gradually edges up to 3,000 as things get warmer and warmer. If I press the gear change down enough for the neutral light to o ...

Seems the Futura's front end is the same spec as TDM850 and a few Gazers of the same era. Doesn't seem to change the price though. Black Shadow seems to have retired - and no money for OEM discs. Anyo ...

So tempted to propose a Falco - Futura swap... bit then I tweaked my back yesterday and remember how my (long stolen) Falco used to feel. In the end I out the bars on top of the headstock and "ju ...

Nice one - those HID lights look amazing. And what's the music?

That's IAMX.

I do need to rewrap the lens... in fact the whole bike needs a wrap after multiple drops have left it cracked and sc ...

I removed my Falco's datatool when having problems - "It's the alarm" being the perceived wisdom of the crowd so out it came.

Report back when you have it working - it'll be good to confirm that it gives the same output profile as the old one (before it failed).

I tested them all with water fresh from the kettle - even th ...

The Futura is the most sensitive bike ever to front tyre pressures. Just a few psi makes the difference between confident tooling and unpredictably falling into corners and the steering feeling like t ...
