I saw the wrong side of 140 last ride I went on. Very naughty, but such a rush.

On a private road, right?

Here's a better pic of the chain and sprockets. Well pleased with the power delivery now.

Ooh, very pretty. I really wish I wasn't sorting boring house stuff so I could get the bike finished off instead. I had to put new tyres on it for its MOT and they're just itching to be used.

I'm now running a full Brembo kit on the front. Calipers plus pads and Serie ORO 320mm discs. Changed my brake line set up too, running two lines off the MC direct to each caliper.

Got a set of Gilles VCR fully adjustable rearsets arriving tomorrow, expecting these to improve my BP no end, plus they look sweet and have race shift option.

How do you find the Brembo setup? I changed my GSXR to a Brembo master cylinder and it made a massive difference.

The brakes are very good now, no fade or judder when hot which is what I had on the stock discs before.

MC on the shopping list as well as a quickshifter, if my bonus comes in next week!

Here's hoping. Brembo MC and adjustable lever make a big difference.

Fitted a set of Gilles VCR's yesterday, fully adjustable rearsets. The transformation in body position was great, seating position so much better for knees/thighs on tank, plus the GP shift is quality, love it although have to think about it at times as it's still unfamiliar and unusual!

Looking at getting a Translogic QS next.

Bike going on dyno tomorrow to check it's not got any issues.

Nice. 

Is it standard exhaust or full system? Well worth a remap if the latter.
