-- while i'm at it......is anyone familiar with a model year 2000 996 that suddenly lost its speedo and tach - a new rectifier did not cure the problem, and fuses seem to be in order - a buddy of mine is now replacing all fuses just to cover that base (should have done it before buying the rectifier, but "who knew"

well these are the words of a guy in the UK i know that does know a bit on RS engines and how to build a racing bike on the SL :

" i don't inderstand how they even dared to build an engine like that and even give warranty on it. It's a 2012 RS engine. they really must be counting on it that most of the them will not be ridden hard."

The difference with the R is inherently really stunning. the SL in road trim ( plate attached) with 9L of fuel in it was measured at 164 kgs. thats is 10Kg lighter than mine also full carbon ansd magnesium.. and with 190 rear wheel BHP on tap without touching it flying through the range on less pistonrings and a lighter crank...

from the spec sheet, the review reads spot on ...
Yup, Martin is the owner of DG. He sold me my 1199, and I've seen him on track.

Eh, I considered that route. For some such as myself having multiple bikes is more impractical than putting a limited edition race bike on the street (in addition to the track).

Given the constraints of only one bike, with a relatively unbounded budget, what would you choose?

to put the discussion on the 'cost'/'value' on the SL to rest.. id think i can say i went down the other route.. as faaaaaar as i could and still going...

let me reassure all who bought an SL : it an incredible amount of bang for the buck you're getting... i am at 164-167kg empty now.... with not 1 piece of plastic left. dropping another 4-6kgs will cost about 9-11K... and my warranty is long gone...

thank god nothing will be able to compete with the joy of seeing it develop and grow and talking to the people who developed it with us... but moneywise : that SL is a bargain...
Thanks from Phl and CaliDuc

If I had 60K to blow then yes I would take a sl no doubt. But since I work my ass off and still don't make enough money for what I do I'll have to budget my money. Honestly I am perfectly content with my "S" model at the moment...it is perfect...it really is. Best bike I have ever had. I'm sure the SL is better and more lust inspiring...but if I had 60K to dump on bikes...I would still rather take 2 or 3 vs one.....

HP4, pani r, F3 800, New superduke, multistrada....shit there are so many bikes I would love to ride...why stick to one? Again assuming one is on a budget as I am.
Thanks from CaliDuc

That was my approach and consideration as well . At my point it would be selling my R and one of my classic bikes .
I decided to keep my R buy a KTM 1290 Super Duke .

Don't know Jarel. His last track bike was an R, so I'd think he can give a pretty good comparison.
