Could be a loads of borrocks tho...just something in the biking world. Roll on the summer aye...I'm sure you will enjoy and good luck with your ACU
I think Mart below is correct - all i know thus far (having owned the bike for a matter of days!) is that in the Motorrad pack and folder that came with bike there is a red plug that you connect by removing the seat and fix into ECU and this essentially takes ALL of the electronic aids OFF - its called "Slick Mode" which i can only assume relates to the use of slick tyres as opposed to road tyres?? Funnily enough ive never ridden a bike on track with slicks but ive just ordered my first set plus a set of tyre warmers in readiness for the season ahead!! Either way, i cant shed any more light on your question but i think i will take one step at a time and see how i get on!! Keep you posted!! And thanks for your comments - appreciated.

Again thank you fella - and im also totally with you about the headlights - in fact i still dont like the nose cone and cant wait to fit race fairing and be rid of the lights altogether - but its probably the only ugly thing on the whole bike!!
