Howdy from the wind swept furnace called Texas

Hey everyone, I just a acquired a slightly used 2016 V1K. I am looking forward to the forum and learning more about our bike. The suspension is excellent for an OEM unit. The 43mm Kayaba fork
with 5.9 inches travel and rear shock just eat up just about everything thrown at it.

I look forward to many sMiles.

Welcome, and congrats on the newly used machine.

It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.

Jo'

I have enjoyed viewing your customization process on your bike. I am also opting for a Terry's aftermarket like seat now. Right now, the AirHawk seat cushion works really well.

The fuel mapping and throttle crispness on the V1K is excellent.
