I fit the Ergo Seats but didn’t notice much difference. They look nice! I was hoping to get rid of that wedgie feeling as the seat slope makes you slide forward while the grippy material holds your pants back. Why don’t bikes ever come with flat seats? The seat is a little taller, maybe I can pull the cover off and remove some of the slope.

Went out on Mrs bigtree’s 690 on Monday, had a blast over the Crow road with my mate, got to agree with you this bike is a hoot. 👌🏻

FFS will you all STOP riding and telling me they're great !!!!

I want to try out SPORT mode and it's rained every minute of every day... Well, it's not raining now, but the roads are still horrible here so no chance of me going out.

Yeah tell me what it’s like as I might still invest in it but going by Monday’s ride I’m not sure if it needs it. 😜🤣🤣🤣

Since the high beam is terrible and I do most of my riding in the dark (morning and evening commute) through an empty, winding forest road, I made some changes. First, I added a fairly nice Nineo LED bulb. this made everything brighter and whiter. However, the high beam still is just a spot of light hovering above the road which leaves the road in front of me and the edges of the road dark. I was trying to think of ways to keep the low beam on when the high beam is switched on. Unfortunately, the LED driver electronics can probably only handle/allow one at a time. I ended up making a simple bracket and installing a 18W Kawell 6" LED flood light bar. The light bar is about as bright as the LED bulb and is wired to come on with the high beam. I haven't tested this at night yet (in a couple hours) but it seems to be an improvement.

Leo Vice decat ,airbox mod andFuel dongle.
sure opens up a whole bunch of fun.
I haven’t yet looked into this. I just purchased a decat pipe to make oil changes easier but might want to richen up the mixture if it seems lean after the pipe change. So it’s a noticeable change when paired with the airbox cover?
