Wow! What a difference.
Well I've had my sp1 for about 7 weeks now and have been finding it difficult to ride. The roll on throttle was really jerky and the gearing made it hard to ride on tight roads.I was ALMOST starting to believe I had made a silly choice for my first bike. Other riders were subtly hinting along those lines with comments like, " you bought a superbike for your first bike".
Well now it's a different story. Whilst doing a full service I also changed the gearing to 15/42 and installed new Cush drive rubbers. It's now like a new bike and sooo much easier to ride. The gearing has taken away the unpredictable throttle response down low and the Cush rubbers have taken away the backlash between acel and decel.
The only disappointment out of the whole exercise was realising I didn't have a screwdriver long enough to remove the last screw in the air box to replace the FPR and investigate why there is some oil between the cyclinders. My guess is it's something to do with the oil catch bottle. It doesn't appear to be coming from either head cover.
Ps, are there some handy hits on removing/ refitting the tail section. Call me retarded but I found it difficult. Especially refitting it.
