Been parting out a few of the spares yet on the rocks of what to do with the main bike itself; thing will blow your mind on the track though!

Point: I purchased these bikes with the understanding that they need A-LOT of maintenance and have the capacity to provided that attention. I have many spares for everything on these motors and will be keeping them for as long as I have these bikes; I know they won't last and replace parts before they fail! Yes, I ride the bejesus out of these and that does play a factor; yet just firing up a built motor is starting the stopwatch till the next rebuild. And those are not cheap!

What many people who build their engines fail to consider is what effects that additional power will do to their engines and how you are only shortening the life of the components such as the cases and the head itself. What is the point of a built motor on the street? {Aside from loads of fun!}
Yeah, it was an absolute beast. I sold it because I am actually faster around the track on an 07 GSXR 750 with a stock motor. While it was great fun and tons of grins to be on a bike like that, I simply had to step back and realize my skills were not improving at all on that monster. Though I did get my racing license while riding it in the rain on slicks with the traction control turned off! Sad though, I'll likely never own another bike as dialed in as that one was.

Well, you might have the opportunity soon as I might be selling one of mine. Though take to heart everything that has been posted in this thread thus far; buying the bike is the cheapest aspect!

Huh. Well, since I already have some mild headwork and JE's in my engine, I *do* need to update the suspension over the winter. Is that an Ohlins TTX rer shock calling my name?

Charlie, We don't want tuna with good taste. We want tuna that tastes good, smells good and puts out.
