The NEW Mille's are V4s.The old ones, are 60 degree Rotax twins. The V4R is a ridiculous beast. 100 arrives in 2nd and before the end of the on ramp. With throttle left over.Hmmm....i though Mille's were V4's....guess I need to get better educated.
My former co-worker Alex accompanied me on his CBR600RR to Montauk Point Lighthouse on the eastern most tip of Long Island. After a total of 172 miles today, the 800 felt like another bike, near a VFR like, sport tourer) This latest version of tweaks to the adjustable clip-ons has totally transitioned it in terms of comfort. As I had reverted back to factory spec.....I'm gonna work back and lower the front end just a hair (I'm still on my tiptoes) via raising fork tubes in triples, thinking 10-12mm. I'll then have the compromised sidestand shortened a bit via a certified pro welder at my former job. I believe that will then complete and personalize my comfort/lowering tweaks to best as I can get them. An aside....the 800 Ducati seat is actually more comfortable than my new CBR650 Honda rock hard example. Huh? What?Which bike? I think the 800, with underlying motives.
A: a comfort test of the current bar/rise configuration in a long ride scenario (around 150 mile)
B: I'm just under service mark of 6,000 mi, I'd like to reach that, to then commence with a valve clearance check (to include MBP collet install) while weather finally agrees. An FI tweak or 2 as well. This quirky Eye-talion Marelli FI new to me, learning my limitations.
