welcome up! Don't be scared of the high revs during break in, she needs to seal those rings proper so give 'er a lil, even princesses need a bit of abuse now and then ;) You going to remap your 390 now that you've got the Akra, PC's are great we've got a thread going already...

Awesome that you got the Akrapovic exhaust. Those are in high demand right now. It'd be great to see some pictures of your bike with the new exhaust installed on it. Sounds like you're pretty happy with everything. Any complaints?

the guys in the workshop basically told me that the computer learns its self so when ever you put a engine mod eg exhaust or air filter, to just turn it on and let it idle for a few minutes without touching the throttle and it sorts everything out. turn it off it saves it. start her up and away you go.. im thinking of getting a powertronic chip tho. a bit more researching first.

i am very happy.. only complaint is i kind of wish i had a bit more of a windbreak to hide behind on the highway.. but that was expected. if it really bothered me i would still be driving my subaru. ow and i only just realised that i was missing the front scoop on the bottom of the engine! rode out to the dealers and they put one straight on for me tho.
so all in all pretty happy. ill take a photo today and put it up tonight for you.

The PM didn't work and i suddenly have something with the family on Sunday morning... Will be hard to squeeze a riding session this weekend. And the weather is not cooperating today.
