If Jessie Jame's had a ZX12R I'd ride with him.

Drum roll please........................




OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!


WD-- i had 17/47 ( now 16/47 )


ND-- NOT ONCE!!!!!!


READ ---- 3rd gear power Wheelies!!!!! ( with my big ass * 230 lbs* leaning forward, No let off then hit it. Just get her to 5500 and whack it. )

1ST gear is NUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ( i have yet to get her to full open before she tacks out )
2DN gear pulls like 1ST used too!!!!
3RD Pucker up cause you're on a rocket ship!!!!!

Well need less to say i bet you can guess how 4-6 goes.
This combo doesn't move the wheel back very far maybe 1/8 of a in. So wheel base isn't a problem.

On to the cons. Cruising dose get a bit buzzy ( 4500 ) And the muzzy problems have been amplified, The dip at 2500 is worse and on off throttle response in the upper range needs to be addressed. Cause on/off above 7k isn't nice. And im sure my gass mileage has gone down but it hasn't been very noticeable i got about 120 out of a full tank. And of course my speedo is even worse, An even 10 mph off.

This mod has completely changed the whole character of the bike for the good.

All in all for 30 bucks ( for 2dn day air ) This has to be the best mod i have done to her.

Im going back out tonight so i'll list the victims later


Baaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaa

P.S. I would not recommend this mod to a light rider. Even with my 230lbs butt on her it get's nuts real fast.

Also WD,ND i took alex on 41 today!!! She did great. And she had alot of fun. lmfao She said " i can see how you guys could have alot of fun on this road"

Lmao IF SHE ONLY KNEW!!!!!!!!!!!

Question: Is it alot like going to the 17t? Or is it REALLY that noticable? I mean , I did feel a change, but not one that
made me tell someone to be careful, but w/ your quote above
I am second guessing my plan to go down to 16t. And add in possible NOS? that may not be a safe combo. ????

But, you have my attention now...

Going from 17/47 to 16/47 yes its a big change. As it stands now ( it may change ) 16/47 + NOS in my oppinion isent a good thing with a stock swing arm. Maybe if you only spray in 4-6 maybe. Depending on how hard the nos hits.


18/46=2.55 ( stock for thoes that dont know )
17/47=2.76
16/47=2.93
16/48=3.00 Hmmmmmmmm????????

I was in your backyard yesterday too and didn't call. We did 41 and a bunch of others down in SE OH. We went through Chillicothe and through those scary-ass hilly roads!!! We did about 325 miles but I'll have to look at the map to see exactly were we went. Looks like it's time for some new rubber in the front.

Sorry WD we were not planing to do 41 we took 52E ( boring!!!!). And we stoped where me you and Nd stoped that one time ( by the river ). And i kinda talked her in to it. We only took it up to 35 then we headed west. 35 is kinda boring as well but it would be perrrrrrrfect for some high speed runs. Verry long straght's, good pavement.

I found a road yesterday it's 32 mile's long with brand new pavement, new yellow line's and all. Maybe about 40 driveway's along the entire length, And no intersection's, And it run's on the edge of three county's, Too far for county cop's to run very often. Gobb's of 15 mph to 30 mph turn's and no off camber turn's.

I ran it 4 time's got to the point I was lifting the front wheel off every corner before upright.<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/happy.gif ALT=":D">
