    Had my Tracer since February. Just had my first rear tyre change and picked up my Yamaha panniers yesterday. 2500 miles is not a lot for a rear but i have been riding like a hooligan with the traction control turned off. Its early days but i am impressed with the panniers so far. Rode 70 mile of windy motorway with them on and didn't feel any turbulence.

    Has anyone on here added a tail tidy yet? interested in seeing what the other options would look like.

    Also has anyone looked into re-flashing the ECU to remove the speed limiter. I don't get over 140MPH that often but it still annoys me.

    • What tyre did you put on the rear ?

    • Thought it was only the us model that was restricted?

    • Waiting for the evotech tail tidy to be available, to match evotech crash bungs, spindles front and rear and rad guard. Pricy kit but very nicely made. Looked at the r&g tt but the instructions mentioned that you had to superglue a bit on? Wtf?

    • Looks like some kind of ecu and abs link up. Restrictor on mph / kph in 6th or 5th and 6th.

    • Getting the R&G fitted at first service ... the super glue is for the R&G shroud for the licence plate light thats all :)

    • I have replaced the standard rear with a Road smart 2. I believe its the same tread pattern as the Dunlop Sportmax D222 that was on there but I'm told that the compound is a bit harder so should last a bit longer(we shall see!).

    • My bike is Restricted by the ECU to 139/140MPH in 5th and 6th gear. If i ride it flat out it will hit that not long after changing up into 5th(tested on private roads of course!!).The engine has got the potential for a lot more.

    • I'm looking in to this. I have a bike dyno and from the information I have gleamed if you disconnect the rear abs sensor tiu get full rpm but power is reduced, a kind of get you home mode 75bhp.

    • Cheers Stephen Tyler. keep me posted.
