Juiced

[QUOTE=The_Precious_Juice;25671245]I was thinking about the first gen TA.
XL650v

Try thinking a little bit harder (or with less juice, Juice?)

The first gen TA wasn't an XL650.

Congrats!

Congratulations on your new bike!

I hope it's everything you expected, and I can't wait to hear all about the 2015 mods (and especially any mods to the airbox / airfilter!)

RoundOz,

I knew about the higher spring rates (thanks for the confirmation, though) but I just wonder if KTM will be adding a few other updates too.

I know what most of us think KTM might...

If you really love Honda or Ducati, you can buy a red bike; but you don't have to.

If you live, eat, and breathe Yamaha road racers, you can buy a blue (or blue and white) bike.

Thank you for your feedback, IB1.

So, am I right in reading from your reply that between 4k and 7k vibration is not a problem on your bike? If so, that's great as it would imply that this was a...

Thanks for the response, Fubar.

Any Others Experience HF Vibration?

I agree that the gearbox may improve, though some don't (my Tiger's gear-change [caused by a crappy clutch] is still awful after 23k).

Anyway, even if it didn't improve on the GS, I could live...
