Hi all,

How about a thread specifically for the 950 Supermoto in all of its forms?

Without trawling the web / forum posts there doesn't seem to be a good source of info for tuning, modifications, bling etc specifically for this bike/engine.

The idea behind this thread is to provide a source of information for anyone interested in the bike.

This should answer the majority of the questions of new owners and those looking to modify / tune.

With my limited information I thought I would start with this in the hope you lot would add to it.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CHANGE/ADD TO IT AS YOU SEE FIT – SIMPLY COPY THE FIRST PAGE AND ADD YOUR BIT

THE LAST PAGE OF THE THREAD SHOULD ALWAYS BE THE MOST UP TO DATE PAGE.

Try keep it tidy!

That link still works. What's the age of a thread got to do with anything anyway? Should I be starting fresh threads about old bikes?
