I had a GP Mk2 19x20 before my RCS Corsa Corta and I loved it, but the brakes are pretty much either on or off. Advanced users only.

When switching masters, you always need to make sure you're...

The Nissin calipers have good power, they just drag a lot and rebuild kits are expensive. R6/R1 calipers are cheap to rebuild.

I doubt you'd notice much of a difference swapping masters. If you're...

1. You need to at least check the cam chain at 40k. I'd give it a 50% chance that it needs to be replaced. It will definitely need to be replaced at 60k.

2. Our bikes use 7.48mm diameter shims....

Racing oil is for racing, meant to be changed after every race weekend. 7100 is great stuff (it's what I use for racing) and will hold up to anything you can throw at it on the street.

You need 2013+ Daytona or Street Triple wheels, unless you want to modify an older wheel. Your best bet is to look for a used set or buy aftermarket.

An engine swap seems much more difficult than fitting gen 2 fairings to a gen 3. The 3's tank & tail are fine, just gotta fix that hideous face.

They're the only thing keeping the pads in if you have an R. It's fine to leave them off of Nissin calipers.

Any tuner worth his salt can use TuneECU, but the import time for a map is so long, it would take 10 times longer than if they were to use a Power Commander.

You should get a custom tune, but the...

FYI if it's missing the exhaust hanger bracket, they're probably 06-12 rear sets. They'll still fit a 13+ with a 71111701B bracket.

You can hook up the pump to the bike and "test" the fuel pump in TuneECU or DealerTool. That should run it long enough to get all the gas out. It's probably not the greatest thing for the pump to run...

The stock spring on an 06-08 shock is meant for a rider that's ridiculously heavy. Almost like it was intended for 2-up riding only. A new spring should only cost about $110 and will make a big...

You can't (or shouldn't) un-flare a rivet. A new master costs about $10. If a shop did it, have them do it right. If you did it, don't press it so tight.

First off, great writing. Do you write for a living?
