Took the 1098 up the spur yesterday, it was unbelievable, like riding on a rail. I cant wait to get kms up so I can give it heaps. I went up around 7 a couple of times and it boogies up there. There seems to be a flat spot where they ask for it to be run in ( 5 - 6.5) theres a dip in the power curve to, right where the noise test is done. I'm hoping the new ecu with the slip ons smooth it out a bit. I'm stoked, this bike exceeds all my expectations so far.
