I thought your bikes were going on eBay this weekend? For real, you spent $60,000 on 2 1199's + thousands more in upgrades and you complain about $350 for a sprocket/chain upgrade? I can't quite figure you out.

Learn how to ride.

There is nothing wrong with the stock gearing.

correction they give you a discount a a POS sprocket that is over priced to begin with to bring it inline with the price of a real sprocket and quick change carrier

Yes you have to pay its an option not a recall

That is a good question. I would bet that it will remain exclusive to the R.

its because he spent 60k on bikes and still has to upgrade to get the proper performance out of it. thats why he complains. much like me. i complain when things go wrong BECAUSE of the premium i paid to get THIS BIKE. If i bought a R1 and things went wrong id say ok i only paid 13k its expected. Instead i pay 25- 30 k and things go wrong that is a problem

new members are still in the kool aid phase Phil. give them time. melted fairing, non working signal and horn, fogging dash, oil leak, dealing with the stealerships, and dealing with ducati NA. soon enough they will be complaining too.

one other thing which is over looked. white Pani rides his bike EVERYDAY. maybe when commenters on here put on a few miles they might run into problems. i know i have ridden to VA from NYC on my bike a few times point is if you are not riding the bike you wont have problems
