At last after 5 months of waiting prospects seem good enough to prep the bike for a new season. Put the battery in and added some air to the tires. That's about it. The bike started, of course, immediate. Didn't take it out for a spin though. Waiting for some more sun :)
Due to illness the start of the motorcycling season had to be postponed. Today I did the first 100km of this year. The weather was very good, so the roads were very busy. Not much fun...
Seems to be a slow starting season this year due to some minor surgery (gal bladder removal) and recovery period.
Yesterday the ECU of the SX has been flashed, fuel cut disabled and max rpm increased with 500rpm. The bike gained 13hp (182 -> 195), more should be possible when the catalytic converter would be removed. The increase in max rpm should make it possible to do, in theory, 310kmh. I'm gonna test that asap... :)
As a loaner I got a Honda NC750X. Ugly bike, but I guess a perfect commuter with very low fuel usage and a comfortable seating position.
Nice weather today so I took the SX to Germany. On my topspeed-test-road (A77/57) I opened the throttle and tuck behind the screen. Quite effortless the SX sprinted to the 303kmh. With some more free road maybe a little bit more was in it, but for now I'm satisfied :)
