Funny you should mention that.
Its weird, the gearbox is different and although the sprockets are the same as the 950 it feels totally different.
Feels like a close ratio box and you find yourself hitting the rev limiter way too quickly and easily.
First gear feels taller.
Im supposed to be taking it easy as its still running in :shifty:

So far all good, Im slowly getting over the loss of the 950, what a great bike!

The 990 gearbox is extremely smooth. One the bikes great attributes.
They must have stole the design from Honda. :lol:
