Sato Rearset on my BiPosto

My bike went on a diet this afternoon. I removed the darn ugly biposto triangles. Installation of the Sato's was fairly straight forward.

I apologize for the poor quality cell phone pics.

What do you think of the Satos? I really like the look/thought of them, but am afraid they would keep my feet too far forward.

I like them alot so far. Even in the lowest setting they are definitely a little more forward and higher than the stock on the biposto. Which is taking a little getting used to. I only took a short ride yesterday to test them out, but I about to take a 3 hour ride this afternoon so I will see how I like the new riding position.

I have been riding with my new Sato rearset for the past two weeks and must say that I really like the riding position better than the stock Biposto footpegs. It took a while to get used to their higher position, but now that I am accustomed to placing my feet higher to get on the foot pegs, I find it very comfortable. I feel I can really clamp my knees onto the tank better and the riding position with the legs higher feels better when aggressively taking turns.:D

And what do you think about Ohlins DU707 ?

Even though I think the Du707 shocks are great, I really think that the stock shocks on the Biposto were very good too.

The biggest improvement to the suspension, other than having the suspension tuned by a professional, was upgrading the crappy stock front forks.

Phase 1 (of many)

I figured its about time that I posted my SP1000, after creeping on all of yours for the last few years. There's a before pic in there, along with a few "in progress" items. The summary is as follows: 749 forks, 998 brakes, custom headlight brackets, custom instrument cluster bracket, YSS RGL rear, NCR Titanium 2-1-2, Carrozzeria wheels, PakBikes FLEDA, and lots of swearing.

Hope the Swearing was not because of the FLEDA :D

Nope! The FLEDA was the easiest thing ever, huge kudos for a true "bolt on" kit. The swearing was all down to those NCR pipes. Any word on that lovely Wasp 2-1 under-mounted exhaust coming back?

The 2-1 is available from TERMI
We can get
headers, Can, Stainless hanger and Hardware
All that is needed is the Airbox cover ad Flash the ECU
For the Airbox either one of the MWR works very nicely

WASP is not doing his 2-1 as far as I know to date
Cheers
Email me for pricing

Le$$ = Mod$



Never topping 210F. Decided to clean-up the front. If she stays <250F, the cooler won't be coming back.

When my cooler blew on a road trip
I ran the bike without a cooler for a couple of weeks waiting for a replacement
I did not notice any real difference in temps. Maybe a 10 degree change when in traffic but on the open road no difference what so ever
