I probably have already lol
I guess it would be interesting to hear your bike next to mine. I doubt I shall resist the temptation for fitting cans too long.
Ive had a couple of TRX 850s in the past... they sounded awsome !
Greatly miss the paniers on my ST1050, so I kinda think a top box will be my first thing.
Dont want the trouble of having to have a dyno jet fitted ect so will need to know if race cans will make the bike run too lean, first !

Yes it’s a bit thirsty but not as bad as I thought. I did 240 miles on Sunday. It cost exactly £40. From brimmed tank to brimmed tank on return. I think that =30 mpg. In comparison, my st1050 used £35 for same trip. So an extra £5 over 240 miles.... don’t seem 2 bad :)
Ridden mostly around 5 6 7000 rpm. The biggest difference was having to make two extra fuel stops on the VTR because of the stupid small tank. :D

Sorry chaps it's down to the forum rules, as below:-

11. Due to abuse of the Sales and Wants section by some previous new members, it is now mandatory that you have 50 posts before you are allowed to post in that section of the forum. Anybody trying to get around this by posting sales in the wrong place will have their posts deleted, try it a second time and their account will be deleted automatically. No questions asked. Also, posting trivial posts just to reach the 50 will also result in your account being deleted.

The 50 post count applies to sending PM's (Private Messages) as well having full access to the "Sales and Wants" section..

The full forum rules are shown in this link:- https://www.vtr1000.org/phpBB3/viewtopi ... =2&t=19054
That link is near the top of the "Welcome Inn" section for anyone to see,

Chris.
