Lard
« on: Friday, 09 April 2021, 01:54 am »
Just gathering trinkets for my currently standard 07FE. As a lover of clot inducing food stuffs and beer I’m pretty sure personal weight loss is not going to be a factor in improving the bikes performance. Not sure if anyone has logged the difference in potential bolt on gains but I will log them if interested. Currently coming in is carbon mudguard, rearsets, chain cover, slip-on can, mirrors and more. The other half is over the moon  :grin: not mentioned the dymags, yikes.

Rearsets on a standard 1400 Stavros 😳 What else are you changing to accommodate those?

Get a set if yoshi cams and a better exhaust system(yoshi's and akroprovic's are much lighter than standard)
It'll pull anything then.
35-40% more power everywhere .
only a slightly modified gsx1400
oh and a standard one too

I see this is currently in "Forum Guides" so I'll move it across to General Bike Chat

I remember Lucky13 putting rearsets on a 14, he found them more comfy as he was a lanky sod.

When i had my Bandit 12 i got some rearset plates which moved the pegs back about an inch and up about the same. I found them really comfy. I'm a lanky sod too :grin:

Just want to try the rearsets for position really. For me it’s always seemed a quite natural riding stance. However let’s see what the knees say.

Just waiting on delivery of a Yoshi can Seth and will be exploring cams in good time.  :grin: for now I’m super happy with how it is in standard trim so no real rush, just can’t believe I’d overlooked such a great bike.
