I'm not going to outride anyone,😂 I was only responding to another comment about the Triumph being a collection of crap parts. It seems to me you would t have to touch anything on it.

Its second hand info from reading reviews, but I've read a lot about poor low speed fueling, poor front brake feel, etc. I don't really want to drop another grand for a Coober unit and new brake...

Opinions Please

Will be picking up a new bike soon, it's between the Duke 790 and a leftover MT09. The Duke seems to be better equipped, but the Yamaha is about $4500 cheaper. Is the Duke worth the extra bucks? I...

If you have already done the cam, exhaust, and airbox mods, you can just get a dyno tune, because there's really not a lot more you're going to do to this motor. I went with the autotune, and the...

I had a 400S, great bike, but the top speed was about 70. If it wasn't for all the fun I had on that bike, I never would have considered the Duke.

I'm pretty sure you can customize the ignition map with the PCV, I used autotune do the fueling on mine. I have no idea where to start with the ignition, it would all just be trial and error.

Beautiful exhausts, but their prices are outrageous. I think the duke exhaust was about 25% the cost of the bike. I'm happy with the Yoshi and I have money left to buy gas and tires.

You might want to try it with it in first, it sounds pretty pretty good (and loud) like that, it would probably be too loud with it removed.

Don't do it oldtimer, unfortunately, it seems like all bikes these days need a little fine tuning. One day of wrenching, and a couple of bucks, will turn your duke from an unpolished turd, into a...
