If I may ask what do you weigh?
Did you decat your bike?
Dint you find with R on that the bash plate made the bike a lot lower to ground?

I weigh 90kg (kaalgat :biggrin:)
Yes the belly is slightly lower but the advantages of having a super strong bash plate is more important to me.
I did not decat the bike but I did go one tooth smaller on the front sprocket.

. I dont think there is so much power in decat and if you ask me when you decat or pipe do rapid bike to help with fueling they say it makes a big diff....with decat you loose lots of power at the bottom and mid thats were the sprocket comes in again
