I have had my Yamaha XSR700 (aluminum color) for about a month here in Manhattan and have about 400 miles on it. Upgraded the exhaust to Akropovic Ti and flashed the ECU with a PCV (it’s part #22-078 ), and installed a few obligatory sliders and guards. She sounds much better and I suppose power curve is a bit smoother. Love it so far, esp. riding over bridges up high. She gets me in / out of traffic quick even though no lane splitting / filtering here. Her svelte figure still scoots me through. Looking to learning and engaging with other owners of this “sports heritage” bike.
