    We had the opportunity through Darren James to work with Trevor up at Flexi-glass on new bodywork for the FZ07 and MT07. The quality of the kit is amazing. The tank is molded off the FZ07 stock tank and uses the stock mounting locations without the flex or need for additional bracing of other kits on the market. Utilizing the current ZX10R wind screen. Bodywork is 2.0”narrower to avoid dragging and clearanced to avoid the exhaust in the lower. The mounting kit will be built by Robem and available on the website. Flexi-glass is proudly made in Canada with premium products. Cost estimated $800 upper, lower, tail, tank cover and fender plus shipping.

    We've been busier than a one legged man in an ass kicking contest but wanted to respond to Matt's post. I can't say enough about using these great forum vendors as resources instead of the cut rate cheesey hacks on eBay or Amazon to help with your projects. The level of support is second to none. I got daily texts and phone calls checking on progress, help problem solving, trouble shooting and technical advice that is simply non existent with the chinese/online/sell it cheaper crap dealers. These folks spend countless hours and dollars to develop and test their products, technique's and knowledge to give the rest of us what we seek. We, in turn, need to support them and not the peddlers of cheap knock offs and copies who forsake you as soon as your creditcard clears. I guarantee you'll never receive a phone call from China to trouble shoot your issue at 0530 trackside on a Sunday like from these guys! Blue Line Racing

    Been having fun. this bike is very trail capable. Beat this thru the muddy trails at 6000 ft above Boise in the rain and it took everything I gave it and keep wanting to go faster. This was up in Stanley, Idaho at the trailhead

    MotoAmerica TwinsCup Road America Round 2 Race Report Round number 2 seemed promising having already turned laps with the previous two-race weekend last month and set up notes still fresh in our minds. Darren James once again was incapacitated for travel with the border travel restrictions we would have to make due once again with a full Suzuki effort. The bikes had recently spent some time on the dyno and were looking healthy for round #2 in the land of cheese and brats. Velocity Calibrations had freshly serviced the forks for both Jackson and Toby after the first round with Toby wanting to make some adjustments we couldn’t accommodate during round one. First Practice saw pace much slower than previous race pace as to be expected with the cooler weather at 09:10 around the 4-mile course but in line with the pace of other riders on course, time for lunch. With looming rain and weather looking clear the rest of the weekend we mounted rain tires while debating the merit of Q1 being able to provide any transferable data to Q2 or the race. The consensus was to put the warmers on the slicks and come in partway through Q1 if rain approached vs burning tire stickers and leaving us to run a scrub in either Q2 or the race with only 3 tire stickers left for the weekend. Q1 saw the riders increasing lap times versus the morning practice, with few riders improving much if at all. With environmental conditions deteriorating we retired to Parc fermé hoping drier conditions would allow the riders to push times in tomorrow’s Q2. Q2 was hotter with the pace being pushed quicker and quicker with Kaleb and Rocco leading a charge during the session. When the dust had settled the riders had put in a respectable effort qualifying with Jackson Blackmon on the front row in #3 position, Toby Khamsouk on row three in #7 position and the Doctor himself Carl Price on row five in the #14 position for the 10:20 race on Sunday. Race time on Sunday for the twins was the first race of the day. Prepared for a scorching pace based on the flier put in by Rocco in qualifying the riders took to the grid with eight laps to contest in the Wisconsin sun. All riders got away with a clean start with Jackson slotting into 3rd and Toby in 5th going into turn 1 at the start of the race. Jackson had a misstep halfway through the race that left him on the sideline and eventually in the pits with the rest of the team to watch the remainder of the race with the team to cheer on Toby and Carl. Toby in the mix with 5 riders vying for the final position on the podium with 4 riders driving to the finish out of the last turn with Toby crossing in 6th position. Carl not to be outdone by his younger teammates bested his personal best by almost 2 seconds completed the race in the 12th position. Congratulations to all the twinscup competitors and we will be back on the bikes in the Georgia heat at the end of July before you know it.

    So we're in the game with both bikes at Road America. After P1 and Q1 today Shawn sits in 9th, Tony in 12th, not bad. Tomorrow is Q2 and we'll have to dig deep to defend or move up on the grid. We're right in the middle of @Spatt 's crew of 3 filthy fast Suzuki's. Best racing story ever happens near the end of Q1. Shawn is working hard to gain a spot or two on an iffy track and low sides outta T3 in front of a big cheering crowd. He pops up but the controls are damaged so can't continue and takes a bow for the appreciative fans. While Shawn is waiting for the crash truck to pick him up a guy and his wife ask for a photo to which he dutifully obliges. Helmet off, best pro pose, big smile, arm around the gentleman's wife and while her husband snaps the pic she says to him, "Why not grab the titties, you earned it". The whole crowd roars as the husband throws Shawn an ice cold PBR for his effort. Gotta luv racing.

    Small update, cylinder head just about finished, intake cam back from being reground, hope to be able to be able to check valve to piston clearance soon and then get the head skimmed to increase compression a little. Adapted a car engine stand to take the MT07 engine to make working on it a little easier.

    These showed up the other day to help us control heat. Better materials and greater capacity than stock radiators. Also gonna be testing a new carbon fiber tank cover. It has a different shape and will hopefully offer better ergonomics, a better tuck and better aero. Shawn and I playing with one of only 10 ever Britten's at Road America for the heritage cup. Holy Grail of racing. Once in a lifetime to see on track getting beat on. This one has a long, storied pedigree. "One of the most famous racebikes in the world will be there on track, and that’s Bob Robbins’ Britten V1000. I actually wrote a story for the MotoAmerica Website last year about the Britten and when Michael Barnes, Andrew Stroud, and others raced one at Daytona. So that’s really cool that Bob will have his Britten at Road America. The fans will love that. Yeah, we’re really excited. It kind of surprised even me. My father tells stories of going to Daytona the first year the Britten was there, and he describes the bike being out on the track and 50 men standing in a circle just dead silent, creeping inches at a time in a circle so that they could all get a full panoramic view. Nobody could get enough of it. What an extraordinary machine and an amazing opportunity to have it on track with us. It takes so much effort to ride and preserve the bike because there are little to no spare parts for it. So, we’re really honored that Bob Robbins will have it out there. I’ll also have my personal race bike, which is a blue-and-white Suzuki GS1000 Wes Cooley replica. There will be some Kawasaki KZ1000’s and some GPz’s, too. A couple of Matchless G50’s. It’ll be an eclectic group of vintage racebikes, for sure."

    I picked up a new 2019 Yamaha R3 late last fall. This is my street bike. My FZ-07 is now a dedicated track bike. I'm keeping the R3 motor, and intake all stock. I added an Akrapovic GP slip-on. Adding a slip on, while leaving the stock CAT on does nothing for performance. Essentially, my R3 is stock for all practical purposes. I'm pretty active on the R3 forum as well. I kept seeing posts about the excessive engine braking on the R3. I didn't think it was all that bad? I mean, it's a little 321cc parallel twin... How much engine baking could it really produce??? I thought: "Maybe I don't know, what I don't know"??? I was right- I didn't.... I went to the 2WDW website, and they where having a COVID-19 discount on ECU flashing for $249. That was the cheapest I've ever seen it. They did a great job on my FZ-07 flash, so I thought I'd pull the trigger. I gave them all the details of my bike, and was clear that I obviously wasn't chasing HP, but wanted it to do everything "better". They turned it around in a week door-to-door, which is amazing to me. I reinstalled the ECU, and everything worked as it should. I just took it for a ride this morning for the first time since the flash. I knew within the first block, that I had a different bike! It did everything better, just as I had hoped!!!! The lack of engine braking was a drastic change. I had no idea how much engine braking a little 321cc motor could produce!!! It was instantly an easier bike to ride. Granted, it wasn't a difficult bike to ride to begin with, but the flash helped dramatically. I roll off the throttle now, and it just glides effortlessly into gradually slowing down. Very seamless, effortless, and just plain FUN!!! I know people are always gonna ask "is it faster now?"- Honestly, I don't think so. That wasn't my end goal at all. When I got on the throttle hard this morning, it felt the same as it did before the flash- no better, no worse.... What I gained was a bike that runs smoother, and easier to ride. I'm happy with my choice, and it was definitely worth the money. I posted this on this site because the R3 has the EXACT same motor as the MT-03. I know a lot of people are looking at the MT-03. It's a very fun, smooth, high-reving little package. You can really wined it up on the street, and be pretty darn close to being "legal" -

    As an aside, the first thing I did upon moving here was to buy a 2019 Kawasaki Z400 ABS. I later bought a house on the island of Bohol and am currently finishing up a garage renewal for my shop. No more damn winters hehe. Oh yeah, today July 4th is my birthday....76 years young and still ride like the wind.

    Fwiw the lap record for class is 1:26.382 by Jackson Blackmon on a SV650 last year. You say you are in the intermediate group. This is generally the biggest group and rolls at a lickety split pace and usually requires a track review by instructor to get into. Point being your pace is good, swimming with like speed fish. What's more important is that you measure your success or pace from within and not against any published standard. If you are unhappy with your current pace despite making diligent efforts to improve, then perhaps you've plateaued and it's time to shake things up. Most trackday providers offer some sort of track riding instruction. It may simply be free video analysis by a trailing control rider or paid one on one instruction with a local hot shoe. Perhaps reading a track book by someone like Keith Code or similar, or an all day track school that includes both on track sessions coupled with classroom discussion and analysis. I've done all of these at one time or another and found them all to have value. Some of the most fun I've had was hooking up with a similar paced rider and enlisting the help of an professional for small group instruction. It was great to learn close quarter riding at speed, use of the draft, relaxing in traffic, spacial awareness and probably most important; just being able to ask the miriad of questions I had. Of course there is always the big schools like California Superbike School and Yamaha Championship Riders School among others offered at tracks across the country. You're a novice in the intermediate group. Have fun, learn, pick up the pace, or don't, you're doing fine. I've noticed that basic Intermediate Group riding pace at various tracks is roughly 10-20 seconds over race pace, and somewhere 0-10 seconds over race pace for Advanced Group.

    Nice start. I always say when it comes to parts that could make the difference between life and death, like signals, buy quality once. Youve gotta be seen by the innumerable dummies out there by any and all means. Ive been very impressed with Rizoma overall. Enjoy that new ride!

    The track photographer finally published her photos from June 14. This was a local track day, so I'm still going pretty slow getting everything dialed in. By the end of the day I was feeling really good, and back to my usual (still slow) pace from last year on my Ninja 650. Here are the action shots I promised: This will be the end of the thread. Thanks everyone for all the feedback, and the advice along the way. It was a fun build, and I definitely could not have done it without all the help from everyone on this forum. I've been creeping and reading for years before I made the decision and bought my FZ-07 with the intent to build it into a race bike. Now I actually get to race this thing. First race is on July 5, on a track I've never ridden before. I can't wait!

    Frame sliders are in. The only thing I have left is my Vortex levers. I think I'm going to pull the trigger on the TST hyper pack, and find a nice LED headlight to replace the stock one, and call it a finished. For now, anyways. My new dash should be in this week, so I think I'm going to be back to a 0 mile bike. Lol I've put at least 400 miles on the bike since I bought it, so if I ever sell it, here it is on the interwebs for someone to find it. She's dirty, but here are 2 pictures to show you what everyone else sees. Yes, the Two Brothers decal is missing, and I have one coming. I've been riding the piss out of it the last week, and this week I'm on vacation and it's supposed to rain all day tomorrow and most of Wednesday, I'll be doing the first service this week myself.

    It's not quite that simple. These split, timing and scoring data sheets take a while to decipher. As far as pure top speed goes, there are many variables that effect it. Weather, temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, placement of the radar gun, time of day varies. Keep in mind it's seldom placed at the fastest point of the track, usually near the middle/end of hot pit lane and the bike's are still accelerating beyond the gun. The other thing is that as a class you're looking at finite or slowly climbing horse power numbers as a function of the rules and motor size limitations. The real changes come in the ability to get the machine/rider around the track faster through other means. Corner speed, rider aides, improvements in technology, electronics, suspension, handling, braking and hardware help us lower the lap times even tho trap speeds appear stagnant. If you look at the overall race time, then lap times you see trends more clearly. For instance; In 2018 the overall winning Twins Cup time was roughly 20:50 with a best lap of 2:34. In 2019 it was 20:19 with a best lap of 2:30. In 2020 it's now 19:50 with a 2:27! That's finishing the entire race in a full minute less time and running 7 seconds per lap faster. Holy crap. The developement of these bikes in this class has been incredible. We've set a new class lap record every year. It also helps that the rules have remained somewhat unchanged. Having said all this I think at some point we'll see diminishing returns as time moves forward. Since this was a new class with a liberal rules package we were able to make great strides in a short time. These begin as entry level street bikes remember so they are never going to threaten other classes too much, lol. Giddy up.

    I have already ordered and received: K&N air filter Two Brothers Typhoon full exhaust Vortex levers Tail tidy with some inexpensive LED turn signals Frame sliders Front axle sliders Rear axle sliders (I may exchange these for axle spools for a stand) Dobek fuel controller should be in this week. This is the first bike I'ver ever added aftermarket goodies to, so I'm kind of excited.

    I did the Matris cartridge system. It was about $600, but you can get decent results for a lot less money with the right springs and oil. I replaced the rear shock first (with a Nitron R1) and was amazed how much better it made the front end feel. The stock shock is the weakest part of the suspension, which is not what I thought before I upgraded. I was certain the forks were the main problem. If I was doing it again and being sensible with the spending I would replace the shock and do new springs and oil in the forks. You would get 90% of what I have for half the money. Hopefully you can find someone that is making a race bike who will sell you their old forks. I know there are some guys on the forum that have done the R1 or R6 swap so there must be some stock forks around that someone would be willing to part with.

    Honestly I think you have to give the OP credit for knowing what they were doing. After all, they had to loosen all those adjustments to take off the lever and then readjust after the modification. There has to be a fraction of free play in the lever and he wasn't satisfied with the extent of the trave as it was stock. He came up with a good way to gain travel while maintaining the proper free play. I give them credit for the thought process. If he is happy with the modification and possibly has given others some thought, more power to them.

    Update, We got a new motor swapped into V2. Motor makes better power when the cams are installed properly, we tested it both ways to be sure . Shawn was quickly up to speed and laying waste to the lightweight grid. We also got some valuable wet track time on Saturday. A couple showers helped get our rain setup dialed in and let Shawn get some much needed seat time on rain tires. I got new forks put on my bike which resident scrawny quick kid Daniel helped get dialed in in Tony's absence. Very pleased with where we're at for next weekend at Road America. We also put new tripples and linkage in Shawn's original AP bike to bring it inline with the other 2 as far as handling. I've just completed the turn around on the bikes and am loading up for another bite at Road America as I type this. Giddyup

    I have had my FZ-07 for a little over three years now. This is my first bike and I have loved it since the day I got it. I did the basic mods like blinkers, integrated back lights, tidy kit, and new mirrors right away. Since the day I got the bike I have contemplated getting an exhaust. I have read review after review and listened to too many sound clips over these years. I kept putting it off. I just felt like I couldn't warrant spending the money on it, felt like it wasn't needed. This is mostly because I kept looking at the best exhausts (which were very expensive). As well as assuming it's going to be so hard to install a new one. Once I got my stimulus check I finally told myself it's time. Better now then never. So I finally decided on the Akra ti and getting a flash ecu tune kit. Definitely a pricey combo, but I figured I waited so long, I'm going to do it right. The installation was no where as hard as I thought it would be. I am not very savvy with these sort of things, but you follow a youtube video or two and you're good to go. The only hard part was taking the baffle out, which was not a fun experience. Akra Ti Thoughts: Now I can't speak for the other exhausts, since I've only heard the Akra ti in person but this thing is amazing. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. This was like a brand new bike. The sound that comes out is so mean. I do have the baffle out, and didn't test it with it in so I cant speak for that. The videos really don't do it justice. This exhaust in addition with putting a new mapping through the ecu flash changed the bike. I really feel like I'm riding a different bike, and keep finding excuses to go out and ride it. It is loud, but I don't think I'll have any issues with people unless I'm really an asshole about it. I'm writing this out because I'm sure people are like me and keep researching and contemplating if they should get one. I've seen people say that the exhaust is one of the first mods you should get. I now understand and wish I didn't wait 3 years to experience this. JUST DO IT! Old Shitty Lookin Exhaust: New Sexy Exhaust: Bonus Pics: 1st pic wheels just nice and cleaned. Second pic literally 1 second after they've been cleaned. These damn yellow wheels lol, love em but they kill me with how easy they get dirty.

    Haha, flex tape is so sticky if it ever flops back on itself you can never get it apart, holy fk does it stick. We got the 12" white fix anything the homeowner can screw up size. Only thing the wind can peel off now is at the chassis level. Stay tuned for next week's catastrophe post, lol. Not bad looking on the outside but the inside is all torn open as well. Problem is when the weight is on the hitch the goose neck flexes. Tears everything loose. It's fine when on the jacks. That's why this company went out of business, they built junk. This one was allegedly fixed after product liability suit but is still junk. Oh well shower and air works. ☺

    More junk from the trunk, almost 30 years ago today... I think I paid $175 for MotoGP @ COTA a couple years ago. Good times. I ain't been right for some time... AMA Superbike ran here beginning in 1982. Wayne Rainey won the inaugural event and in 1986 & 87. Kinda gone full circle. My father (M.A. Mortenson Const) actually disassembled and hauled the bleachers, now on the front straight of BIR, up from Metropolitan Stadium when it was torn down to be replaced by the Metrodome in 1982. Now that's gone too, to make room for the new Vikings Stadium, haha. This is the Central Roadracing Association's 50 year anniversary all at this track. We are one of the oldest non profit race clubs still in operation. Sorry for the trip down memory lane.

    Had a great weekend of track riding up in the great white north this past weekend. Managed to get the bike out for 2 full track days. This was supposed to be the clubs first weekend of races, but with COVID19 and government restrictions, the call was made to cancel the event, because "competitive events" were still not allowed, but "instructional events" were okay. Government makes the rules, we just have to jump through the hoops. Oh well. Despite a really dodgy forecast, the weather was absolutely perfect. Saturday I was really getting a feel for the bike, and towards the end of the day as I started to find my groove, I was noticing some scary headshake coming out of the chicane before the front straight. I spoke to the local suspension guru, and he had a look at my sag numbers. He removed some preload from the rear, and the next day the problem was completely gone. He figures that the Ohlins shock I bought setup for my weight and bike was setup assuming I still had the stock linkage components. With the dog bone link I bought from Andy Palmer, it raised the rear, and reduced squat, but that meant my preload was too stiff, and causing the front to lift under hard acceleration. It makes perfect sense when he explains it, but I swear suspension tuning is black magic. I'm just waiting for the photographers to post their pictures from the weekend, and then I'm going to buy a bunch and I'll share them with you guys.

    IIRC It's a pretty wide range of weights for each due to the preload adjustability and yours would be the 200-250lb range, easy. Plus if you go through @bellissimotoyou can just tell Paul your weight and he will relay to k-tech and they'll select it for you. Talk to them. Not sure which k-tech shocks you're looking at but for the razer line they are the same. For what its worth I absolutely love my R-lite.

    It's been a while since my last update so thought I should join back in. with my setup I've gone with having the internals upgraded, which the engine is currently on the work bench and having the following done: Corrillo rods, headstuds, PSI valve springs, custom made high flow fuel rail, bigger injectors and HD clutch springs. Unfortunately I won't be able to provide any photos of the build as I'm not undertaking the work myself. Once the bike is up and running I will try to get some Dyno footage and maybe a couple of review videos online. In all having forced induction on this engine makes for a fun little bike to ride. Hope to update you soon... Fingers crossed before summer has come and gone

    Mount kit looks like this: The fairing stay clamp allows you to remove the front stay without having to disturb the fairing placement and declutters the cockpit with the damper under the stay. Angle is different than the Catalyst/AP or Sharkskinz. The side mounts are similar to others on the market but the length changes slightly. Plugs are 3D printer and will upload the files on Thingiverse later so replacements are extremely cheap for the end users. Made in Ohio by FabFreddy who works for us and is bring true motorsports quality fabrication to the lwt class with parts like the subframes and brackets on our bikes.

    I get to spend 13 of the next 19 days at various race tracks either racing, wrenching or like today corner working. Along with the ubiquitous Scions, Civics, BRZs and Miata's are 2 beautiful McLarens and a Lotus. Mama mia. Here's my view from T3 at Brainerd International Raceway. What sounds better, a 5.0 Ford GT with Borla exhaust or a twin turbo Porsche? In other news we blew a motor at Blackhawk Farms where Shawn was putting the spurs to his new bike with one of my old motors in it. He was having a good weekend too, crashed outta 1st when a lapper went down in front of him on the last lap spreading parts under him, finished 2 hard fought battles in 2nd, then pulled off outta 1st when the motor let go. Oh well. Good thing I have his motor ready to go in this coming weekend, and now I know what I can expect for longevity, lol. In other, really good news; wife says we're in the market for a track day car. Woot!

    Update: My 2020 MT-03 now has 1,200 miles on it. After I've been riding a particular motorcycle for a while, it starts to leave an impression on me and I begin to think of it in a certain way. The way I think of this MT-03 is that it a sleeper. That is, it's not much to look at with it's so-so styling, but the feel of the handling and great performance of the engine belie it's looks. I feel that I actually got more than I bargained for with this bike.

    Shorter pipes usually produce more torque, apposed to longer pipes producing more HP. I have a Akra -Ti . It's short and has a lot of torque with the flash. I ride street and some trackdays on a tight course.Perfect for me. If you racing then the motor already makes enough torque, so your looking for that little bit more HP. All comes down to- Yeah you guessed it.......... so many variants., depending on what you need/want/scenario. I ordering a Hordpower air box tomorrow.

    UPDATE #5 UPDATE #7 (June 19th) I was waiting on tracking numbers from Europe before I posted another update to the original thread, but because I've had people PMing me asking, I figured I'd post the status of things as they sit now: Gilles: We have received about 70% of our Gilles order, but still waiting on the rest to come. MWR: It is supposed to be shipping next week to us. Rapid Bike (for those who also ordered these): Expected to be here in the US by Jul 1st. I understand everyone's frustration. COVID-19 has really hit Europe hard. Most of these manufacturers are operating at 50% capacity, and the workers in place have to main a 1.5 meter distance from each other. I think the lead times are highlighted more with certain group buys, because the structure of a group buy, and the reason I'm able to do these incredible prices means I have to have a minimum amount of people to make it cost effective to offer in the first place - which sometimes means longer lead times because we have to wait until the minimum amount of people commit, and then when I do place the order, its usually in giant quantities that take the manufacturers longer to produce. This, combined with the global COVID-19 situation has made it frustrating for many. I understand all to well. I personally have some parts on order for myself but when they arrive I'm actually going to use them to fulfill customer orders since I can't ride my Tenere until Oct due to a recent surgery. At these incredible prices, there isn't enough margin to ship items as they arrive, so we wait until everything is here for a customer, and ship all at once. I really appreciate everyone's patience with all of this, and hope the wait times don't tarnish your experience or actual service you are getting from BellissiMoto, as we are also waiting for all these products as well. As soon as I have more info I'll pass it on. With all I wrote above, it looks like we should be able to start fulfilling everyone's order in about two weeks Please hang in there everyone, it'll be worth the wait!

    When forks are bolted together your spring rate will be average of 2, in this case .925. Mixing springs is how you get rate that is not available to buy. Springs come in .05 steps.

    I loved my Exige S it was painful to drive on the street but hysterical handling and the supercharger whine with it directly behind you made ear plugs a must. Funny we were just talking about engines the other day. Sorry the bad luck followed you. I’m sure it’s a simple fix.

    Asymmetric designs just look neat and it’s the side with the airbox opening. The tubes are done but the connection to the airbox I have to scan and create for Trevor at Flexiglass.

    2020 Yamaha Team Blue - I got this in April, choosing between the Z650 or this, but chose the MT-07 cause of the "cool" factor of the crossplane engine. Planning on having this as my go to long term bike so decided to dump some money on upgrades right away Cosmetic/Protection ASV Levers ColorClusterZ LCD Flip Gilles Tooling Passenger Sport Pegs (not yet installed) LED Switchback DRLs MRA Screen (not yet installed) Techspech Grips TST Taillight + Tailtidy Wometech Crash Bundle Set Engine 2DWD ECU Flash FTECU ECU Harness FTECU ActiveTune (not yet installed) Yoshimura Exhaust || Baffle In Suspension/Handling Gilles Tooling Rearset Upcoming Upgrades CP 13:1 Drop In Pistons E85 Tune (don't try to persuade me otherwise please, I know what I'm doing) Nitron Rear Shock (still deciding which one) Nitron TVT Cartridge Speigler Brake Lines Yamaha Radiator Guards I'll try to get some pictures up soon, right now I only have cellphone pictures. Also got a second pass of the custom DRLs, now just need to make a 3D print and install an LED strip on the sides where the Yamaha logo is.

    Ok, so this has gotten kinda outta hand what with the other bike build and all this research nonsense and experimentation and all. To keep fresh and competitive I've decided to respring my JRi rear shock and add the extra Robem linkage I 'accidentally' ended up with to the ass end of my bike. Then to compliment that I've horse traded/flipped/traded some parts to end up with another set of Ktech 20ids forks sprung for Tony. The Andriani's are now retired and relegated to spares duty. They've been awesome but the time has come. A little tweaking under the hood and we'll see what happens. And to update the Leo Vince moto gp can, the packing is already blown outta it but it continues to hang together. It's no louder at full power yet hides away neatly. It doesn't hurt fueling or throttle response and makes the same power as the Yosh can. We'll call this a win as it's less than half the price plus it looks wicked cool!
This leaderboard is set to Denver/GMT-06:00
