Adjective+noun. A mastery of english language allows you to understand this.
Hairpin throttle
Hairpin trigger
Get it?
Hairpin:


Is your throttle tube fabricated of bobby pins?

Hair trigger: "Responding to the slightest provocation or stimulation: a hair-trigger temper; a hair-trigger reaction."

Or, in this case, a hair trigger throttle. Nice try though, and thanks for playing. Consolation prizes are available on the way out.

That being said, the CBR is an easy bike to wheelie with all its midrange.
Don't get me wrong. I'm sure plenty of people wheelie them just fine. But I've seen some threads on zx-10r.net about them being harder to wheelie than other bikes. For me it was, that's all I can say. And no doubt the midrange is a factor in this. It just never felt like it wanted to let me wheelie it without a fight. Good for the track no doubt. And it was certainly a track oriented bike.

-1 +2 does get some crazy front end lift. I'll change from -1 +1 to-1+2 if i plan on hanging with the wheelie freaks for the day. Truth be told stock gearing is near perfect for everyday riding. -1 is nice though.

My point exactly, -1 +2 turns these bikes into f@ckin missiles around town. No need for MORE hp. Stock gearing imo is just right. Gear spacing also perfect. Posted before how my buds are amazed how I leave on them.
