    On the topic of rear brake power, I like to use off-road spec pads in the rear brake for better modulation. The power is still more than enough, but it's more progressive and so easier to control the rate of application in particular.

    On the Shiver, I'll be trying a slightly larger master cylinder next, to see what that does. Obviously it'll provide less hydraulic advantage, which I'll appreciate on track and in the wet, but I'm more interested in (and less sure of) what it will do to the modulation aspect...

    Me neither, the guy on the back was Greg Murphy who raced V8 cars in Australia, he won a few Bathurst races also. On that particular day KTM dropped him off a brand new 1290R to ride on the track and take home, i think he still has it.
