  1. The new Suzuki was delivered this morning and I'm pleasantly surprised how small and light it is.
    Fugly though!

  2. Was looking again at one the other day...as much as I'd love and R1 or a Panigale of a RSV4, gixer fits me perfectly: others don't.

  5. Must be unusual for them to deliver a bike to someone who is not whooping with joy.

    Enjoy.

  9. I was almost sad when it arrived! I'm hoping to do a few running in miles on it tomorrow.

  10. I've booked Portimao in April so that will probably be it's first outing on track. I've done a few little bits today like removing the rear foot pegs and fitting the Yoshi exhaust hanger and refitted the clear screen.

    I have some suspension settings from the Simon Crafar videos but will ride it standard for the first couple of sessions then make the changes so that I can feel the difference.

  13. Nice! I like the looks and sound of the Yoshi exhaust. How come you switched back to the clear screen? Is it taller/shorter or just looks?
    I'm heading down to Nelly's today around lunchtime to pick up a few bits, let me know if you're riding out today close by to there!
     
  14. I look through the screen on the straights on track so I need a clear screen with having a dark visor.
    Let me know a rough ETA for Nelly's and I'll meet you there.

  16. Would you get rid of the abs??
     
  17. You don't have to remove the ABS unit as it's a faff but defo get it blanked! and run a cylinder to caliper hose set up!

  18. More than likely in the future but I'm going to run everything as standard first time out then make the improvements I feel are needed.
    I like developing my bikes over a few outings I find I learn more that way.

  19. Just had my first run out on the black pig and I think it could be a wolf in black pig clothing as I was pleasantly surprised at how well it goes!

    Met up with Sonic and Nelly for a chat which was worth the trip out.

  20. You can just turn the ABs off, can’t you? I’d be doing that while it’s in warranty tbh, may be replace pads and m/c (don’t the boxers come braids red lines already?)
