    You don't think that perhaps the lack of weight at the front could be the cause of the pushing? When I had the Hypermotard I found that it would do the same thing when riding "enthusiastically". I found that I could entice her through the corners by leaning forward (rather than sitting up like a kite catching all of the wind). Could always run a test by raising the back/lowering the front? But there are compromises to consider. Have fun setting her up Barfy, that's the fun part.
    I live with fear everyday, but sometimes, she lets me race!

        Just do it. Seriously, if you look up the standing rules of PSB it goes something like this.

        1. Dont be a dick
        2. Desmo is allowed to be a dick (sometimes)
        3. Buy the one with the most Duke
        4. Dont ask about fixing the search function.
        etc etc..

              Yeah, Todd showed me his development bike and dyno runs. The difference is pretty incredible, it's definitely on my list

                As a general rule, the better it felt when you said it, the more trouble it's going to get you into.

                  We have lost touch now, but I used to know Tony Macaulay, the guy who co-wrote "Build Me up Buttercup" and many other hit songs in the 60s. His royalty cheques used to make me want to cry! Very talented guy, but a [email protected]$rking awful driver. He was a menace behind the wheel of a car. I used to see him regularly driving around Brighton with his hazards on.

                        I can vouch for Morgs being not only a real person, but a genuine one too.

                              For once in my life I've made a plan and I'm following through (cos that's what Brian Boitano'd do)

                              Just ordered front and rear suspension, got enough change out of a thousand Euro to order a beer.

                              And that tail piece I like is under $100 delivered, so even if it doesn't fit as planned I won't be too upset.

                              I've been riding around for a week with the M bars on, and love the riding position. More weight forward helps the handling and also means I can take more weight on my legs, meaning the rock hard seat is less of a pain in the arse. Tonight I'm taking them back off to get powder coated black.

                              I even managed to find time for a studio shoot (before I changed the bars).
















                              So once the suspension is done, and a couple of cosmetic bits, it'll be where I'm happy with it. Brakes are fine, everything else works as expected. The only change looming on the horizon is the intake kit from Patto's to do silly things to the torque.

                                More progress...

                                Suspension is on, and has made an incredible difference. It still needs some adjustment, it's a little too firm currently.

                                The bars are ready for collection from the powder coaters.
                                I have new levers and grips to go on, but still am searching for mirrors. I want something that mounts to 7/8" bars via clamps, low rise and kinda funky/retro looking. Of course I fell in love with Rizoma, but can't bring myself to spend $400+ for a pair.

                                Did a test fit of the tail piece. It gives the look I want, just need to figure out how to modify and fit it so it mounts to the existing seat and retains the ability to remove the seat/tail as one piece.

                                After that... not too much more needs to be done. But if I find a relocation kit for the instrument cluster, that would be next on the list.
