    Rego expires on the 28th, so I was OK.
    black unmarked beemer K1600 or 1800, big tourer thing, but in a police black jacket and white shoei with blue iridium visor.
    Now its pink slipped (inspected), so I can pay rego on line, and I am legal. Ish.

    Who wants to buy an MT09?

    Why for you have the loop in the exhaust going to the can?

    Longer pipe, more top end, apparently. It also seems to quieten it down a bit. Considering its open, its pretty civilised until you really rev it.
    It's also partly a "fuck you I'm a streetfighter" kinda deal.
    Its an MT09 pipe, so I already had the can and the loop the loop.
    On the MT09 and MT07, the loop takes up the space of the cat converter. I don't think it will affect clearance, but time will tell.

    "fuck you I'm a streetfighter"

    Yeah I'm with Rod, if you had just said that it would have been the perfect answer.

    I like that the exhaust gases have a moment of acceleration then decel then accelerate again causing a scavenging effect which makes it work like a 2 stroke, so it has a power band. you can talk the dickheads something to that effect anyway haha

    I had been having problems with the rapidbike module not reading the RPMs properly.
    Turns out that when you dont properly plug in the crank position sensor harness, the RB doesn't sense the crank position properly, so doesn't pick up revs properly.
    Spoke to the aus distributor (Quicklap performance) who passed me on to RB Australia. Gilles from RB Australia called me yesterday at about 4pm, and sent the instructions (or resent, I've had the RB for 8 months or so), and I noticed I had plugged it in wrong.

    Texted him the good news at 930pm last night, and said respond when he is back at work. He texted straight back anyway.
    And Kevin from Quicklap called this morning to let me know RB would contact me, which they already had.
    Rapid bike customer service is brilliant.

    And compared to the stock ECU map that the bike had been using, it is fucking smooth, and will only get smoother as it writes its own map to match the coil on plug steup, filter and pipe, and short and super short velocity stacks I have. Plus anything else I change.

    If you have an injected bike, rapidbike is the future. They made the VFR800 harness based off a group buy on a vfr forum. I cant wait for NFR.

    I wholeheartedly agree, every interaction I've had with rapidbike has been fantastic. Not only that but their product is absolutely tip top. Can't recommend them enough!

    Went for a quick ride with my bro th her this morning. We swapped bikes for a bit, my vfr and his tuono. I'll have to change the loop the loop link pipe as my brother dragged it going through a couple of corners, but he is 20kgs heavier.

    Which part hits? The bit nearest the tyre edge?

    No, its the outside edge at the bottom of the loop.
    I've spoken to an exhaust place in surry hills (city) who can make me a link pipe for a couple hundred bucks. They do MC exhausts as well as cars, and they said I can drop it off tomorrow and leave it for a couple days, so weds morning, and pick up Thursday afternoon. I'll have ground clearance this weekend.

    Well, he has also lent me his tuono for a month before, so I cant complain.
    I am lighter, and hang off more. He is heavier, and moves less, so leans the bike more. And he is good enough to feel it touch down a couple times and back off. I always thought it may be a problem, but hoped it wasn't. Oh well.
