The prevalence of going upstairs for something then wondering: "what the fuck have I come up here for...?" is increasing...

Interesting - I found my MPG improved quite noticeably when I fitted one of Ed's chips. But it was tailored for my unbalanced exhaust system (i.e. no balance pipes), so that may have had an effect.

I could recommend Ed's (Forza Italia) or Gabro's chippery to anyone. Both are excellent and massively improve the bike, in my opinion.

I think a lot of it is down to how the engine in question was run in. Treat them gently and running-in won't be anywhere near complete before the first service, at which time super protective fully sy ...

With the Duke it's really important to regularly check oil levels - in fact after every ride. For a start some engines tend to use oil at a rate that won't be familiar to Falco owners, plus they only ...

I remember trying to rush a job (stripping the front calipers on the VFR) and not using the correct tool for the job. Long story short, I wound up having to drill out one of the Allen bolts that hold ...

Well done that man! This forum is definitely starting to turn a bit orange round the edges... Before you get started you will need to make a couple of specific KTM mods - two holes drilled in your cr ...

Hi, yes, it's been a while. I'm pretty sure I bought the Givi rack you were selling quite a long time ago. It's still doing excellent service. Hope you are well and will be interested to see what you ...

Today I was screwing my courage up into a little ball, and doing the valve clearances on the Falco. Two out of the eight clearances were marginally tight (both on inlet valves) - 0.11mm as opposed to ...

The 4-pad setup is certainly superior in terms of feel and requiring less effort.

As DR said the standard setup is sufficient but if I prefer the extra feel in tricky conditions or on crap roads.
