      First impressions are that the bike is much more comfy than the SP, you are closer to the bars and without rearsets have more leg room.

      Ride is, well plush in comparison with the SP, just don't feel the bumps that used to jar me. Will need to tweak with the suspension a bit especially for the track.

      From what i have read the front sag is around 40mm and it may require a spacer to bring it down to 30 mm. But i read somewhere when they were talking about suspension that if you are happy with the turn in on the factory sag just leave it, suppose that does make sense, but i will still play with it anyway! Front spring is a 0.9 kg so with my mass may need to go to a 1 or 1.05 kg springs.

      The power of the thing is intoxicating though and so so linear, no kick in the pants at 7g's but it just builds and builds.

      I have had to adjust my riding style completely as it turns so quickly. when i turn at the same point as the sp i nearly either go into the ditch or into oncoming traffic.Looks like the mass centilisation works.

      It feels so light as well.

      Gear box is a bit clunky at the moment and brakes will bed in. It has the new BT014 tyres as well and is the first one in Perth with them, 0404 build plate!

      I'll use my new found img skills again!

                No i had it sprayed black as i did not like the look of the silver lowers, the Americans get an all black model as a standard colour.
