I'm on my second TRX. Say no more! The old girl really benefits from a BMC Air Filter (their part number 598-08) which produced four horsepower more than stock to over 86hp at the rear wheel with a set of Staintunes with their baffles removed. Fitting Yamaha blue spot calipers and a 19RCS Brembo master cylinder with braided lines sorts the braking, and as mentioned above, dropping the legs through the triple clamps by up to 25mm when fitted with a 120/70 front tyre sharpens up the steering and gives better grip and compliance through bumpy bends. A further improvement is to fit Racetech Gold Valve emulators and revalve the standard shock. Best gearing is 17/41 for road use.
