Nice to know that it can keep up with the 675 in the twisty bits, did you leave the suspension stock?. What were you impressions of the suspension> I found I needed to stiffen the rebound to make it less bouncy.

yes at the moment the suspension is stock and it does need doing badly , have tried to find someone local to me who does it but nobody within about 100 miles,mine did feel rather bouncy when your pushing hard or rough roads, dont want to fiddle with it myself as i could make it worse lol

Do the suspension yourself pal- you can always go back to the standard settings- just change one thing at a time-loads of instructions on the net etc etc. Its not a black art, however many may say it is.

just go a few clicks at a time. it's REAL easy, and everything is explained in the manual
