None of them were stock on the gen ones, they were all single pipe. A bunch of makes had dual aftermarkets though. The tigs are absolutely, oops-i-just-set-off-your-car-alarm ridiculous. In a good way.

Hi Guys Stange that Harley thing

Realize something the other day The Harley's better around town and for those mellow moods ( and they are cool) and the Touno is like a caged animal but is fun wheelieing from the lights but get that baby on the open road and throw in some corners and it sure sings
Touno motor feels like a Harley on steroids ( how many Harley's can lift there wheel on the throttle only, at 145kph ( 90mph)
But Harley is more controllable ( full throttle starts all the way up 5500rpm shift point ) at which point the Tuono would lift its wheel and play the Hoon and never make it to the rev limiter without flipping over backwards , 8000 about all I can get without having to shift to stop flip over (at near full throttle of course)

shim check cost?

have wanted one of these for a few years and did tons of research. even bid on a few but missed out and this thread has me considering again.

there's one on ebay that looks pretty good, and the advert says the $700 valve adjust has been completed. $700? wow, hope that includes a bit more than checking the shims. can any one confirm cost in either time or cash for the req'd valve shim check? also, how often is this done. because of the substantial HP made, figured i wouldn't notice the HP/T sag seen on the charts, and maybe could forgive the notable depreciation seen. still want one.

valve clearance is done about every 10k miles. most times they don't need adjustments.

Welcome , perhaps you may be able to help me , my Tuono has a fault and I cant fix it.
When I turn the throttle to full at 100 kph ( 60mph ) in second gear the front wheel comes of the ground is there something wrong with the throttle or is it the wheel

I am waiting for the RSV4 Tuono. The recommended valve adjustment very 12000 miles blows my mind! Relatively low maintenance compared to most.
