I really need a good tire i think that is my prob. Here is a pic from power braking to 3k and letting off 117tf blackies prolly would have been longer but i almost took out a Jeep liberty. Traction seems to be a problem. Remember i have an auto with a 3200 stall. I wish i would have went with a 3800.

    A wheelie shows no skill for a bike. Yes they impress those that know nothing but thats it. Its quite amazing how simple they are and when you have that power of the supersports you can flip it up anytime. Also once you find the 'balance point' you can ride a wheelie all day long at any speeds. Not difficult.

    But straight line racing and riding aint nothing. New bikes are unbelievably stable.

    Now if you see a guy in full leathers and the leather on the knees are scratched to hell........be aware!!!!!!!!

    Yeah i am no expert in bikes. I know alittle about them. When i went to omaha to visit my uncle this kid was going 60 hanging on the side of the bike draging his feet and that was impressive. It is kinda hard to explain unless i could show a pic but dont have one. I really wonder if that kid ever lost it. I juest never got into the bike seen i liked my muscle cars and that was it.

    Very nice indeed. Sounds like you got a great set-up and a pretty damn good deal to boot! I've also dealt with the people at RPM. Nice guys.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the LS7 doesn't like high boost due to the thickness of the cylinder walls.

    Got the corsa here are a few pics not the greatest but you get the idea. I recommend byunspeed to everyone. They price match and free shipping on orders over $100. This only took 3 days to get to my door. Cant wait to get my Melrose headers next.

    Good choice Clint, I'm sure you'll be pleased with the end results of the headers and exhaust system. Make sure you remember to have them lower her when you take it in to have the exhaust done.
