thats about it. if you want real power, open her up! if you want to feel more powerful, you can always gear it down and drop it

Welcome, D2R!! :thumbup::thumbup:

What almost_les said, but also: What kind of "performance" are you looking for??

Top Speed
  • Weight Reduction
  • Regearing
  • Lowering
  • Bear Stacks
Twisties/Handling
  • Weight Reduction
  • Suspension Set up
  • Tires - 190 or 180 rear, 60 profile front

Drag Racing

  • Weight Reduction
  • Extended Swingarm
  • Regearing
  • Lowering links
  • Strapping Front End
The list goes on&on!! I'm not ANY kind of expert on the subject, but these ideas are the first ones that come to mind... :thumbup::thumbup:

Really, dyno tune (the new PC5), Kleen Air Removal, and Lighter rims will help a bunch.

One might deduce from this internet conversation that one or more of you may be conspiring to exceed posted speed limits.

might as well add some vtec while you're at it.
Man, this is funny as hell....LOL

For real, the 12 is fast bone stock. All you really have to do is experience the constant wheelies thru the 1st 3 gears on the dragstrip. You'll never really care about trying to make it faster. (Of course, you know I'm lying, right?)

Best improvement most guys could do, would be sign up for some track days...

If you think more power will make ya faster, you should see what actually learning how to ride can do.

+1 its very humbling watching some old guy on a rattley old 250cc two stroke tear your ass up on a small track with no straights to catch up.

Who cares about the track! Been there done that. Unless you can afford to travel the world, the same old track is like being in jail. It gets boring. It is fun in the beginning, and everyone should experience it. But it is not the end all and be all.
