Hello All!

Postby battleshaft » Mon Mar 27, 2017 9:50 am

Hello!

Recently bought my 2011 Superduke, based in the South West, UK.

Love the bike, the torque is addictive! Just had new Pilot Powers. Few things on the mods list that I'll be doing - ASV Levers, Evotech tail tidy (that standard thing is horrible!), LED indicators, maybe SAS block and usual airbox mods.

She seems to have a front brake issue though... grabbing is evident at low speed gradual stops, as if there's a warped disc. It's a low mileage bike so that might not be the case. Will have a good look at everything over the next few days, give it all a good clean up etc to eliminate sticky buttons, seized pistons, dodgey pads etc.

I ride most of the year, most weathers and can't wait to do some track days on the SD.

I look forward to using the forum :D

Welcome :)
Mine is similar but not bad enough to worry about yet. It only had 21,000km on it when I got it. But under heavy front braking its not smooth.. it definitely has uneven feedback.
Its not an unknown issue from what I've seen written.
2010 SD, Rottweiler intake / SAS removal, Akrapovic slipons, ergo seat, Scott's oil filter, factory alarm, SDR levers, Shorai (LiFePO4) battery, oem 16T / KTM Supersprox 40T, RK GB525GXW chain, Michelin Pilot Road 4 rear / Pilot Power 3 front.

I wouldn't waste my time and money going to Combe; in addition to the draconian noise limits it's merely a very bumpy triangle with three right handers and a few chicanes thrown in to spoil the flow. In addition to the sonic and topographical limitations, track time is limited to ten minutes per hour, with a compulsory out-lap behind an instructor each session... My least favourite UK circuit. I prefer to drive 200 miles to Cadwell than 45 to Combe. 'Nuff said.

Cheers Bic - I like the look of your monoblocks! Maybe an addition for the future.
