    I will look fir the post for u as itís all listed if memory serves me correct .
    Purchase the Rapidbike racing from Performance Parts via Liam . Infact Alex on here had a forum deal going so check in with him if itís still live if not I can have word for you.
    Can u fit it urself ? If so u donít need dyno as itís auto adaption fixes it self to ur bike andxafter 200 Mile would of taken any issues away.
    I donít know anybody in Northern Ireland however a lad on here from cork may , Corkgsxr his user name , great lad whom one of the first to go the rb route so will advise u Iím sure. He did have the evo module and we worked out the racing module is a lot better as it maps the ignition and the jets.
    The base map fitted in all Rapidbike for the s1000rr 2017 I actually had built so can verify itís great straight out the box.
    Size of plate ... 8x3.

    DDC on track is fine. Correct weight of springs is the key to any suspension system working well.

    cheers stephen
    Nice bike Stephen. You sure it's real? In the photo it looks about 4 inches long.

    On which subject, I got a second motorbike for Xmas. It definitely isn't a model, the pound coin is just a fancy manhole cover...

    Look at the akropovic Megaphone exhaust and agree with all the previous threads . If you are a light rider less than 81kg then perhaps suspension setup might be worth doing. I would also suggest new sidelight bulbs and get the dealer to fit as the standard ones are a bit yellow and can be a pig to change. Plus some wheel decals that ath yor bike can be found on ebay
