Full Akra from 2015 Superduke on to 2019

Hi all. I've just ordered a new 2019 Superduke to replace my 2015 as I'm hoping to do another 4 years on one! I am trying to swap as much as I can across with the dealers agreements. The full Akra system is leaving me a little confused though. I don't have the original exhaust for mine so what I nee...

Clutch Refresh - to fix slipping

Hi all, My 2015 Superduke has had a slipping clutch since I got it. It was awful at first - basically slipping every time under full throttle from 7000rpm in 3rd - 6th. I took a little off the lever pin, put the Superduke GT springs in, put a second set of shims in and changed to fresh Motorex. This...

Re: New 1290 Superduke owner - slipping clutch. Best fix?

Cheers - I just ordered 3 of the shims so they should be here next week. I'm going to bleed it and also do an oil change I think. Just try and get all bases covered!
Here's hoping :)

New 1290 Superduke owner - slipping clutch. Best fix?

Howdie - I picked up a 2015 1290 Superduke from the UK there about a month ago. I had it shipped over here to Ireland as there are no used bikes here at all. The dealer kindly wouldn't take any money off and included a warranty that I could never use being in a different country, but that's another ...

Re: HELP: Mirror adjustment nightmare!

Got the fecking things after grabbing 2 long spanners and swinging. The two adjuster bolts don't look the best now so thankfully can be hidden with rubber cover!

HELP: Mirror adjustment nightmare!

Hi, I just purchased a sweet 2015 Superduke from the UK (although slipping clutch in 4th and 5th to be sorted!) and have gone about trying to remove the Evotech mirror extenders as they are shit. The extenders themselves were bet into place and took a rubber mallet and some bashing to remove the bol...
