    HELP!

    I need a DB Killer for my exhaust.
    My Triumph Street Triple R (2010) is fitted with a Arrow 3:1.
    The dimensions of my exhaust is 33mm.

    Tried looking on ebay, but not sure what fits.
    To put on the original exhaust, I need a center lift. Can't get the exhaust pipe down along with spring when it's carrying its own weight.

    Some pictures
      Spoiler:



    Why is it called earth, when it is mostly water???

    Alternatively get a front lift of some type to swap exhausts. (I assume you already have a rear stand?) I have one of the triple tree types.

    Or you could raise the front up using the old ratcheting cargo straps method. Basically just get some ratcheting straps and loop them through the bike frame, then over your garage rafters. Ratchet away and up she goes.

    Went and had a second look at a 2001 Ducati Monster 900 that was involved in a crash. 90% sure I am going to pick it up for a Cafe Racer project.

    There is no structural damage, infact I'm not even sure why it was written off but I'm not familiar with the road laws in Japan since that is where the guy imported it from. So going to pick it up then hack it to pieces and build it into what I want. Going to save a ton of money as well getting a complete bike since a lot of parts are there.

    Went on a bike trip last week.

    Rode back at 6,000ft in 3-4c @ 130kph.

    Makes for colder than -5c with windchill. Then it rained. I have never been so cold. Took three hours to warm up. Awful.

    I did otherwise have a nice ride.

    Couple pictures for the thread because fuck you why not.

    Don't you live in Canada? Son, you haven't been acquainted with the cold before you've camped outside in -40c

    Anyway, nice pictures

    Just dropped inside the door from a trip to Oslo. That place is a madhouse, traffic was horrible. Things change from month to month, roadworks and diversions everywhere and one way street fuckery gallore.

    Calm down Tande P. I don't think replacing the population with Tjøndera instead, would make it into a ballerina of traffic perfection.

    Yeah but where I am it's mostly warm. Coldest we see is -20 for like, maybe a few days. Most the time -10. +40 in summer.

    Moto GP is really interesting this year

    The GP coverage on BT sports makes it almost impossible to watch any other motorcycle racing coverage

    I'm enjoying it too, but am lately finding Moto2 more enjoyable. Sam Lowes is from the county I live in

    'Spy shots' of the 2017 Super Duke.

    Looks slightly different but I'm more excited about the electronics package update - If it comes with the same stuff as on the 1290 Superduke GT, it'll have a quickshifter and cruise control. Much excite. I think I'll keep the Triple for this season and sell it/trade it in come next year.

    What's the real difference between a quick shifter and an automatic transmission?
    Actually an '06.

    You still have to downshift normally, but you can keep the throttle open and kick gears on the way up.

    An automatic transmission, typically, reacts much slower and will shift down for you.

    You could consider it semi-automatic upshifts, or tiptronic or something. Except the throttle can be in any position, rather than 'having to' roll off to shift up.

    It's a fun piece. And on a 1290 SuperDouche it'll insist the front wheel stays up :P
