Best of luck to anyone planning to ride the MT01 in India - the dampers will require extensive resetting before they can be used on anything other than smoooooooth tarmac, so I hope Yamaha have done something about it.

First change on the MT-01 should be a good set of filters - original air filters (dont) suck big time. And if anyone needs Power Commander remaps (for both MT01 and R1) let me know and I will have my dealer ship them across.
