I went for a ride last night. Approximately 50 deg F outside. I have about 1,350 miles on the clock. My bike has never brought up the front end when accelerating in first.. partly because I am 225lbs..

Last night I was on deserted roads outside of town.. If anyone knows the area, its baseline/watt area. Pretty much accelerating from a stop front end came up at around 10k.. = me :eek5 I was a little shocked because I guess the bike wasnt broken in all the way or something because it didnt to that before.. and didnt think a 600 would bring me up like that. I tried it again on the way home this time ready for it.. and it powered up again.

Just though I would share since I dont ride too much and tend to keep it on 2 wheels..

I actually rolled a wheelie which was fricken awesome because I can do clutch ups but I didn't think my 6 had enough to crank up the front end. First gear brought her up all the way and ride for prolly 6 secs then put her back down. and I honestly wasn't even trying to do wheelies, I was running some back roads.

Yeah, it definitely gets your heart going huh...


Now, just imagine being 140lbs (me) with a ported and cammed head and stock gearing...front end wants to lift in 3rd gear at 14k...2nd gear I have to regulate not to get it to come all the way up...

What does something like this cost? And what was the gain?
