Finest. Engine. Ever. (On a bike).

Shut it Alzo........
They do sound sublime...especially after a Decat.  :moto:


I like the Remus system.  Problem with just a decat is that the stock silencer is a tube so it makes them bloody noisy.

Seeing as I work for Telefónica now I thought I'd better stay corporate!

Can't say I like the looks of them but I do like the noise, I'm sure you'll have a blast on it

Yeah it was Decat bike with standard Can I heard...it sounded lovely...but was a tad anti social.

Exactly.  I'd like to do it, but with an aftermarket can with some silencing/db killer.  I like loud bikes myself but I'm old now and realise not everyone does!

Very nice DW.... rode one last summer through the Alps (after watching it embarrass o load of sports bikes) lovely bike and the engine is very very sweet indeed!

Good work DW! The look of those are growing on me!

So when does 'on the way' turn in to 'on the drive'?

First week of May probably.  On order from Yamaha and arrives off the boat on 27th April, so as soon as they can get it to the dealer and unwrap it.

Did you test ride one then DeeDub?

How did it go (other than well considering the outcome)?
Significantly faster than you.....

David W

Nah, never with all that test ride nonsense  :moto:
Not heard a bad word and sitting on one making brum brum noises, while pinging the front brake was enough....

David W

Getting impatient waiting for the bugger now!
