errr, there's a difference between aftermarket parts, and bling for the sake of bling  :thumleft:

it's only as much of a money pit as you make it!

The Dad and I did the alternative route today, i put the 15t sprocket on the front, very  nice! Runs easily up to 135km/h, and when doing more technical stuff I put the 14t on...then it out drags pretty much any bike....... :D

The S and E uses different ways to mount the tank. The E has two bolts that screws into the frame and on the S it just slides over two mounting points. E tank can be modified to fit a S but the other way round is much more difficult. Rather buy an Acerbis for the E, very good tank with two taps.

Precisely  :thumleft:

If you let it idle and wait for it to warm up it takes quite some time. Start it and get going immediately. If you run it like that it warms up within 2 or 3 blocks.

5min ???

WTF

its not a ossewa ???

i get on my bike - i start it and then put on my earplugs, helmet and gloves - then i go

so idle for maybe 30sec before i get going

the trick is not getting it to operating temp before you start riding - its riding it till it reaches operating temp before you start riding like a d00s
