Vinyl with benefit of Corbin Comfort. Also not as "sticky" as Saddleman. Does change the riding posture a bit as seat is a bit higher - so legs are a bit straighter. I rolled my handlebars closer to the seat and now really like the comfort, control and looks. Taking it on an 800 mile ride mid August - will get a good feel for it then.

Just ordered my corbin with the optional backrest upholstered in the carbon fiber vinyl. Costs an arm and a leg to purchase and ship to Australia but you can't put a price on comfort. What number did you set your bars to? Was thinking of adjusting mine also.

Got the air box mod done last night and honestly was expecting some kind of change in intake noise, oh well. Noticed that the intake stacks are all same height (about 67mm and 58mm in diameter) and a bit sloppy installation with a couple of the ports slightly turned to the side. Also, I found that the center part of the filter was more dirty than the rest of the surface - due to being directly inline with the hole in the restriction(?) plate. Hopefully it will get some even wear now after the plate removal.

Anyway, the ECU flash that I got done last week is awesome!! It is like riding a different bike - so smooth throttle response and so easy to hold it through turns. Pair valve is disabled, but I can still hear a slight gurgle on deceleration and I like it. Its worth getting the throttle response corrected as it makes the bike so enjoyable to ride.

Glad to hear you improved the throttle. Did you do the Dano flash or another tuner?

Was also hoping for more induction noise with the plate removed. Sounds like it's still worth doing.

I returned the 750's rear shock to stock again. The bottom 10mm self locking nut feature is worn, needing replacement. though the top one is fine.
The shim's just proved the compression stock is far too harsh, but the spring is fine more or less on settings 1 -4.

Found that a lambswool single seat cover in the cupboard from my long gone T955 Triumph Daytona that with a stretch fits the seat of the 750.
Bit tight against the tank centre area, so I hope the paint will be OK. It makes the ride height feel a fair bit higher.
Test ride tomorrow, and the tyre pressure set to 36 from 42 PSI. I didn't feel any benefit to this when new, but after 1400 km who knows ?

Sounds like the 750 suffers the same rear shock woes as the 1000.
I guess for the money we can't expect ohlins, for that you pay $10k more.
I'm sure there are some decent options for the 750 out there.
