What spring rate did you go with? I have heard different number for what the stiffness of the stock coil is. I have heard 8.3 and 8.8. In the case of the former, I would go with about a 9.0 and in...

Just googled stock chain on Africa Twin and everything says a 525 is stock. I also can clearly see 525 on the chain on my 2017.

Agreed.

I took a quick tour to the Canadian Rockies and felt my 2017 AT was more comfortable than my R1200GS. Truth be told I'd rather have an R1200RT to go with the AT than the GS but I won't...

I think the 2017 white/blue/red or red/black/white are the best looking variants. The only options I wish my 2017 had were the supposedly less likely to corrode spokes and cruise control. But I...

How stiff is the rear coil on a 2017 AT?

I can probably live with the soft front end on my bike but really think I need a stiffer setup in the rear. I would say a rear coil that is 10% to 15% stiffer than stock which will likely require a...

2017 AT - Turn off ABS=yes, Turn off TC = No
