Prowess Pink. Send your money to Hanlon brothers in Bel Plaine, Minnesota. They'll throw in a free t-shirt with every order.

The difference in weight is attributed to the 55 gallon drum of oil that you must bungy to the pillion pad.

The calculator supplied w/ MacOS X has all of these conversions and many more. Another small but interesting reason to switch to a proper computing platform...

Wrecks, don't worry, there are plenty of gixxers and FLXHWSKTWHATEVERS for the stylistically and culturally challenged/stunted.

Early this year they said that the pipe is really short and that all bikes would do this if they also had short pipes. So, I think what happens is that the rich mixture gets dumped into the header on closing throttle and is ignited from the spark plug on one of the exhaust openings as the mixture moves to the end of the pipe. Apparently the pipe is so short the gas exiting the pipe is ignited from the engine.

Nice, very nice. In fact more worthy of press than the Petro bike me thinks... Love the exhaust, now that's fresh styling!

to get from Nm to lb/ft multiply nm by .737 to get lbft. to get from kw to hp multply the following



kw * 1.360 *.9863 = hp



each kw = 1.360 ps



each ps= .9863hp
