I'm glad you got it sorted, Breto. I remember reading the complaints about the rough running of the FTR on the international forum. I had a 2016 Scout and they sometimes had some fuelling problems that led to surging when slowing down, a real safety danger when coming to an intersection.. The FTR sounded like a few steps up the fault ladder from the Scout. It's a great looking bike and if I was still the young bloke I once was, the FTR might be on my wish list.
There's a lot of us with PVCX/PV3 tuners and a good tune really sorts the bike. I put one on the Scout and when I sold that and got a Springfield it was the first thing I did to the bike. Running it through the logging/flashing process makes the motor run really smoothly. And +1 for the Conti Road Attack 3s. I've had them on my Kawasaki for a few years. The first time I rode them out of the tyre shop and swooped around a bend in the street I could tell they were something special. It's like my brain is glued to the road with those tyres. We've got a few of us turning up at Byron Bay in October, and at least one couple coming down from Qld to meet up. Are you able to make it? It would be good to have new faces - and the FTR and Bobber among the big tourers.
