Default YES!

The page loads perfectly now! Great job figuring this out guys. I'm truely impressed that you: 1. Read all (or most) of these posts 2. Promtly looked into the problem 3. Didn't give up easily.

So many other places would have simply said: "Oh well" or "It's not our fault".



My opinion of MO was already high and now it's that much higher. On behalf of myself and those who had the problem but didn't post: Thank You Very Much!!

Default Re: 2003 600 Shootout: Is 636cc Cheating?

Well I guess your smarter than kawasaki because,they built last years 636 and people hated the extra power. So they decided to build the new bike 636cc,so they can continue their sales disaster?

Perhaps the difference is that Suzuki, unlike Honda, don't have a stick up their collective ass.

Honda of course has the right to try to dictate all the terms, if they can get away with it.



Not too many years ago there was a group of American auto makers who thought the same thing. All got into serious trouble.



One even went bankrupt and needed the US Govt to bail out their sorry @$$es. That one is now owned by the Germans and is no longer an American auto company.



Today these companies are considered to be amongst the worst in the world, putting out the worst products you can buy.



I doubt that will happen to Honda because Honda's management is not as rock stupid as the management of Ford, GM and Chrysler were.



But arrogance will cause them a load of problems, if in fact they are as arrogant as they seem in this instance.

Jesus, now I know how longride feels. Again, please point out where I said that people hated the extra power of the Kawasaki, or where I said it was a sales "disaster".

Is this the last new article MO will ever post? The whole allure of an online mag is to get information way ahead of the print mags. But, if no actual information gets posted (or very little) then what's the point?



Lack of content = death



At one time I was gonna contribute to MO...now I'm not bothering to renew.

Default Still stupid I see

Again, just so you understand. YOUR 600 makes less than 70 horsepower under 9000 rpm. IN CAPS THIS TIME: YOUR 600 MAKES LESS THAN 70 HORSEPOWER UNDER 9000 RPM!



DO I HAVE TO SAY THAT AGAIN?

DO YOU UNDERSTAND THIS CONCEPT?

ARE YOU REALLY THAT STUPID?



Under 9000 rpm the Buell wins in horsepower and torque.

IN CAPS: UNDER 9000 RPM THE BUELL WINS IN HORSEPOWER AND TORQUE.



DO I HAVE TO SAY THAT AGAIN?

DO YOU UNDERSTAND THIS CONCEPT?

ARE YOU REALLY THAT STUPID?



So, if you can refute the above then show me the proof. I can compare dyno charts and so can you. Show me where ANY 600 makes more power under 9 grand than a Buell Firebolt. Post the numbers here. I will bet you any amount of money you can't do it. Next, if it doesn't make more power under that, and you never rev to 9 grand then how will you beat it? It's really hard to believe you even ride. I think somehow your brain doesn't function correctly. Are you really that big of an idiot, that you cannot grasp a simple concept? You claim to be an engineer, but somehow fail to grasp a concept as simple as where a 600 makes power and where the V-Twin does. I bet I have ridden more 600's and farther than you have. Want to take that bet also. Bet your brains on that one so you won't lose much. What an a$$hole you are.
