For that kind of use I'd go with Michelin Road 5s. The Q3 are fantastic, but short lived, and if you're not pushing it there is no point in going with that kind of tire. The Road 5 is surprisingly...

When its on the side stand the oil will collect to the left side of the bike, where the stator is. Parts like the exhaust will cool much faster than the engine, and even parts of the engine will cool...

What do you mean by "the flywheel is behind the engine case"? The flywheel is on the left side of the bike and can easily be removed after taking the stator cover off. The other end of the shift...

Agreed. I've been riding daily for the last 20 years, giving another go at gp shift at a trackday was not a very good idea and I paid the price. I'm not going to quit street riding, so when I...

I don't like GP shift because I'm not used to it. Back in January I highsided at the track and I believe it was because of GP shift... Shifting is automatic, I don't think about it anymore, I just...

I'd have done the same thing with the hoses, I hate "hacking" my bikes; the correct part must be used. But there are some things I wouldn't think about twice, like that snap ring or fork seals; same...

Sport touring tires are more capable than people give them credit for. Here is my Versys rear tire, Road 4, last year at Deals Gap:

I have 3 bikes with ABS and over 100,000 miles on all three combined, not a single ABS sensor fault.




Now one of them is going to fail, I know it. Just bad luck dude.

I wouldn't bother with it. I can't recall a single time where I needed it on my D675R, GSXR 600 and GSXR 750, street or track; of course all of them were stock.


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...

In 2011 I got a 2003 XJR1300 that had less than 10 miles on the clock. Dude bought it new in 2005, rode it a couple times around the block and parked it in his garage under a cover. When I got it the...

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...
