I have TC on my GSX-S 750 and it...

Consistency pays off. Qualify good, keep a good pace during the race, it all adds up.


There are several ways they could score it, but I like the current system where a rider doesn't only have to...

Just pull on the base of it, that will put pressure on the middle screw thing and then you can unscrew it. I like them better than the big plastic ones on Suzukis, you never know when one of those...

If the zip tie is higher than that you're still off on your suspension settings; you don't want it to bottom out but you want to use the suspension travel.




Also, how fast are you riding?...

Weird, that explains why the Daytona felt so natural coming from a GSXR-750; but both feel like geared GSXR 600 (I know, flame suit on).


But that graph also makes it pretty evident why I loathe...

13+ Daytona 675, odometer rollback.

I came across an ad for a 2013 Daytona 675, it's very cheap and the bike condition kind of matches the price. Has been lowsided and looks like it was left out in the sun for a while, the windshield...

7amp hr battery means it can supply 7 amps at 12 volts during 1 hour; 7 x 12 = 84W for an hour.


0.00131mA x 12V = 0.01572W draw; if the battery can do 84W for an hour it can do 0.01572W for...
