No, no, no Andrew....Stop it......please.

I'm broke man, new rear shock and ECU under way, another radiator, new fork cartridges, brake disc, and then you start this.

Obviously I covet the mag stuff like all of the others but the one I would like to try (but probably not own) would be the CF wheels. The ultralights were a big difference at intermediate speeds but they still carry a lot of mass at the rim. It would be interesting to see how the CF ones felt with their considerably lower MoI.

Randrew...you are a sick man. :stickpoke

Joe, the longer swing arm promotes traction and anti-wheelie properties. Turn-in is affected by front rake and trail (and tire profiles) and adjusted via ride height at the rear and fork tube height in the front (or, on SBK machines, eccentric steering stem frame inserts and swing arm pivots).

But you already knew that. :f4:

Brian....I have to agree....those bikes are laughable, and yet that is the rage here in the USA. :silly:

My favorites are the Hayabusas with mile long swing arms and 350 section rear tires...then they take off one front brake rotor and caliper. :jsm:

I just don't get it. :confused:

Assuming right Andrew, I would like one of each in my perfect dream world, I'll skip on the carbon one for now :), I did like that carbon covered one but it's purely bling and nothing to do with performance.

I'm surprised you haven't got one of those carbon headlights yet :stickpoke

I would love a couple of those Ally fuel tanks, the carbon one I have is illegal for racing, so I'll put in on #2 bike and just do track days with that, when I get round to re-building her.
