      That looks familiar - except mine has broken on the chain side. I'm waiting to hear if it's covered by warranty or not. If not, some carbon fibre will be in my future.

      eBay!

      I just bought one off eBay when I had my 848 SBK. Fits the Streetfighter 848 perfectly. Mine doesn't have the extra teeth that the Corse one does, but slippage hasn't been a problem. Forget what I...

      Streetfighter 848 - Country Dreaming video

      http://youtu.be/NYB-OZ9RstM

      I'd be surprised, too. I think tak_one's on the money. If the price is good, it's definitely worth a look - and a test ride!;)

      I thought they were fair - but then, owning a SF848, I would say that... I guess the "best" question depends on how you define best. Best super sports? No. Best adventure? No. Best Duke ever? For...

      My SF 848 also has surging at low throttle, but I've never ridden the SFS to compare, so I can't tell you if it's an improvement or not. My commute is quite open - very little stop start traffic, if...

      Definitely. I'm finding I'm much...
