When was the last time one of KR's bikes that "go beyond performance" podiumed, or even finished a race? You'd be better off sticking a shotgun down your Z-REX's can and opening up the baffles a bit than wasting money on this has-been's crap.

why all the hate for KR? as far as i am concerned the guy is a legend ..kr jnr isnt so bad either....i saw jezza mcwilliams on the proton and thought those guys were onto something but just didnt have the the big budget ...

so he releases a lame tie in for squids but why is that any different from any loud piped...fuelling messed up poseur bike ..if it keeps him in funds for his race teams then the end justified the means in my book...

most any mod made to a bike seems to be just about looks ..cruiser or sportsbike ; at least his stuff might actually have performace gains bearing in mind his experience ...the only call is the usual one ..most street riders dont need gains

I expressed no hate for KR. Just making fun of the hype.

The real money is not made selling hand made beautiful works of art made of titanium to sport bike riders. Nope. It is made selling simple chromed straight pipes to brain dead loud pipes save lives me too Harley riders. Pity KR's legend does not apply to that crowd.
