I happen to have 1098 forks on my 848, they are upgraded with Ohlins cartridges and have been swapped to two different 848's I've had, so I'm used to seeing the difference.

I wasn't sure about it, I am the 3rd owner as far as I know. The guy I bought it from said the original owner might have done a few track days and that was the reason for some of the upgrades to it.
I know that in the winter I'll pull the shock & the forks off to have them re-sprung for my body weight. the new ecu( microtech) & mapping should happen in the next couple of months, just waiting for my friends at the shop to get a little break during the racing season.

I meant no disrespect, the bike is beautiful.

And the difference in the forks is pretty much nothing anyone could ever notice.

When you get the suspension all set up, you're gonna love it.

Good luck, it's a great machine for sure!

Thanks I already really enjoy it, but the ex-racer in me knows it needs a little tune up

finally got a chance to take the bike for a little ride today figured out 2 things for sure:
1... the shifter position was way wrong, & I had to fix that cause I was missing gears because it was too high
2.... I'm going to do a gearing change soon, it's stock right now, & playing with that gear calculator site from another thread I read I'm going 2 up in the rear.
On the plus side I was able to get the daily 100 in, LOL. & i was finally able to clutch the thing up in 2nd

okay got a question, just to make sure the wheel speed sensor pick up is on the rear wheel by the brake so If i change the gearing it wont affect the speedo like it did on all the jap bikes I'v had in the past right?, been searching the forums and that is what I can come up with. thanks for the info in advance.

Its in the bracket near the brake as you said. I’m not sure if gearing will affect it or tire size for that matter. But I think the stock Speedo is reading faster than actual anyways.

Thanks Tchase.... yeah since it's there the tire size will affect it, I'm just used to work on suzuki's with the pick up on the front sprocket, I was just making sure. kinda been blowing up the search button when I'm home, lol

with my Job, I really don't have a lot of time off, so I order stuff on line, well this last one was a little messed up...any way, on e of the things I Ordered was some High-Flo filters to change the oil and have some on hand for future changes, they accidentaly sent me the wrong ones, they sent me the K&n ones.... I didn't think much of it, so.... drained the oil, pulled the gauze filter for cleaning, and whoever put the oil filter on put it on way too tight I basically had to crush it to get the thing off. Still fine at this point, letting all the old crap drain, looking around the engine to see if thre is anything else that needs attention, and so on.... pull the K&N filter out of the box, put a bit of oil in it and put it on right, well...wrong, it doesn't fit the bike. spend the next 1.5 emailing and finally talking to the company, about this thing not fitting, and finally agreeing on getting me the ones I actually order coming, which is fine..... anyways its sitting waiting on the oil filter and can't be ridden, only plus side is that it's raining today & i have to leave for work in a few hrs.
last week installed a new throttle tube, awesome difference, and play with a few gearing changes, stock, 14/38, and 15/41..... looks like the 15/41 is going to win out for the street, had way too much fun "testing", lol
also didn't know that those parking lights were not working so I have some more bulbs on the way, looking at hopefully getting a new ecu this week if it works out. Wife has been hinting that the kids are getting me a gopro for Fathers day so I'll be able to recorde all the fun I'm having on my dream bike

Oil filter on, finally...... now I can ride.
going to change tire l8r this summer and can't decide between the rosso 2, or the rosso3. and the angel is in there but I've been told that I might not like the grip. anyone tried both of them?
Back in the day I always used dunlops before trying diablos for the first time on the busa, back in '06. which was about the same time the team made the switch. and of coarse I'e been out of the game for a while now, (crash in late '07)( 1st bike since then). price point not really a factor, I ride the street with this thing, if/when I take it to the track I'll get new rims and put some slicks or super corsa's on it.

original plan was to do a full superbike build from ducShop, but I just couldn't justify spending the money with all the other things I have going on in my life right now. I still will be doing the Microtec ecu from them soon, so it can really get tuned but with my crazy work schedule I don't get to ride as often as I would like, I still might put hc pistals in it l8r, but I don't know yet.....
I did add:
silicone rad hoses, new air filter, new chain, gearing now 15/41, cleaned up wiring harness, led headlights, did the Battery cable upgrade (diy), clutch basket
Going to:
new brake pads in the front, change the rear brake line ( it's 2 inches too short), and put new tires on it; I don't trust them are skidding at 100mph when the old motor blew
