...........as far as I know.

Owning two (K2 & K5) sportbikes this bike is a real beast to me and the heels caps on my boots are showing considerably wear already. I need to adjust myself to lower cornering speeds for sure.

I used to have a Yamaha 1100 Dragstar, but the 109 is light years better in every aspect.

The engine is dream and I feel it handles pretty well too.
The way the bike surges forward on full throttle in 2nd is awesome.

I feel I have to "reach" a little to get to the clutch lever, but I guess the handle bar mod would help here?

Throttle response is a little snatchy in lower gears, but already have the JSD to fix that.................or will it?

All in all I really dig the bike so far.

If now the aftermarket brands could come about with a decent (don't like the OEM Suzuki & Corbin option too much) passenger backrest for my girlfriend we will both be happy. Other than that no other mods this year, but I do see some exhausts coming next year.

Here are a few pics..........and discard the helmet cause this is definately a "full face helmet bike" to me.

Welcome!

Did you remove the reflectors? or are they not needed there?

I think that the US and Canada are the only places that require them ;)

I've seen people say the JSD mod improved the snatchy throttle response, but it's not really designed to do that. It just advances the timing. However over time, my throttle response has smoothed out some.

I agree, it seems like mine has smoothed out a bit too.

I agree..shouldn't make any difference..but (like yourself and Ruben) while I was riding tonight I thought it wasn't as noticeable as when new.....I honestly think it is just us getting used to it and getting a better 'feel' for the bike. I put a Throttle Boss on and it helped a bit too!

Actually the pics is from Koje Island, located just west of Pusan. I work at Daewoo shipyard on the Island.

I'll keep that bar in mind if I ever head up to Osan.

Cheers
