That last post may have sounded stupid. I realize the displacement increase doesnt always equate to a bigger motor in physical weight and dimensions (I.e. the new triumph bonneville T120) but when I sat on a Audace a few weeks ago I swear that engine was wider and bigger than the GRiSO 1200. Placebo effect? Maybe...

No it's not a sad transplant. It's a proper, embiggened, 1200. We leave the lies and bullshit to other 'Tuners'

Wider & taller cause of the fake toaster top valve covers. Myself, I could not ride something that huge unless just for a test after service.

In farmboy talk, it's a 7 bottom GRiSO!!

Well, the first map is done. I could be perfectly satisfied with it if I wasn't me. I will now go into anal mode and tweak it to within a gnat's pube of perfection.

Have the cops realised yet, or haven't they seen it? Or do they say, "oh that, that's just Beetle testing his new toy"?

Mark,
Now that you've had the 1400 for a while and mapped it, how about a bit of a summary of how it stacks up against the 1200 (pros and cons)?

Pros:
More torque. A. Lot. More.
Smoother. Crank balance is better.
Bragging rights.

Cons:
Uses more fuel. Not really a surprise.

I would add that cracking the throttle open at speed will get you to a greater speed with extra ebullience. It's not that the 1200 lacks, it just the 1400 is more. It's hard to describe.

Thing is Matt I think you'll be so amazed by how a well mapped, not fucked, GRiSO runs you won't worry about a 1400 for a bit.... Twisted Evil
