Problems / Resolutions: Only problem so far was finding an appropriate tune after installing the Preds, ARK, and doing the SAI/O2 removal. I tried several of the free maps available (4 in all) before purchasing Tune #11 from TTP, which works fantastic. Much thanks to PieMan.
Owner Review: I have wanted a Thruxton ever since I started riding, but wanted to get some seat time/experience under my belt before taking the plunge on a scoot this nice. I was not dissappointed. This bike is a blast to ride, handles great (especially after swapping the Metzlers for PR3's), and has plenty of power for my riding abilities and comfort zone. Man, the sound of those Preds...freaking awesome! I am thankful that I lowered the seat height (reduced padding) since I am short; I think I would have had issues while stopped on the wet Okinawa roads with the stock seat height (very slippery). If I had one complaint, it would be the second gear on my bike. My second gear is very touchy and sensitive to any type of throttle manipulation, which causes me to feather the clutch much more than I am used to in that gear. Maybe that is just me, though, and I am either imagining things or just need to work on improving my riding style so that it isn't an issue. Not that big of a deal, IMO. All in all, owning this bike has been a dream and I would recommend it to anyone! Cheers!
