Hello from the uk

Hi all,

Ive just joined this forum due to owning a K6 1000 GT vstrom for the past 6 months, Im from southern UK and ive owned plenty of bikes over the years but this is My first adventure bike and this forum seems to be the place to be if you own a vstrom.

My K6 has the usual upgrades that makes this bike a better bike to be on, Stainless silencers, foam filter, lowered front end , raised rear end, forkbrace, goodrich brake lines , tall screen.
over all its quite a beast..

As ive read on here that they seem to suffer from a bad spot in the rev range between 3000 and 4000 rpm and my K6 is no different and to honest its quite frustrating because when im cruising around the countryside this is where the the revs seem to be the most.

I have just fitted a powercommander III USB in order to cure this problem but im unsure what map to upload. Would any be willing to let me try there maps in order to get the best result from the PC3 .. ?

Thanks in advance.....

Kwackboy...

Hi there,

To be honest we have just had a great summer... Autumn arrived the very first day of September.. and yes, its raining...

A bit of rain never puts me off... hoping to try some of these great PCIII maps that have been uploaded on here... fingers crossed...
