Need to ask him what magic he can do (if it’s worth doing) on a 990 as I’m sure it could do with feeling a bit better
Google BN Race Science
No idea, hopefully not the same fate as C&A
Yes, very much worth it, and plenty of adjustment too, good stuff that WP.
Cool thanks all…
Martin what’s c&a?
B, C&A, never mind.
I have B’s details. Find me on FB and give me your number I will pass it to him.
I could be your brother, whereisb.
I’ve done quite a few adventure bikes and 990’s. Lots of improvements to be had.
To be fair, I say that about almost every bike, but it’s the truth.
Your test ride after will confirm;)
Martin - have you brought your coat yet?
Cheers B will give you a call sometime next week (nivag text me your number)
Going for a… uhm… test ride today… to see if I can work out what I need to tell you it’s doing well and what not. (at least that’s what I’m telling the missus)
Goos idea to test ride so you get to know your bike. Don’t worry if you can’t explain its quirks but some things to look out for are:
Is it stable under braking, accelerating and cornering on entry and exit. ( The 990 does tend to weave and wallow a bit. )
Is it comfortable. (Highly likely and at the expense of better performance)
Does it steer (understeer/oversteer) also hold a line mid and exit of corners or are you having to wrestle it.
Not always easy to answer these questions but I’ll do that for you;)
If he takes his ruck sack when he goes on a ‘test’ ride, say goodbye for about an hour…especially if he has his lunch with him
An hour! If I take my back pack I’ll be off for a few days!
