70 HP at the crank, I think. And about 500 lbs. Once underway, the feeling of portliness disappears.

He's never ridden a naked standard so he wouldn't know. His entire repertoire of motorcycling is one ZX600 Ninja. He'd have to rev it over 7000 RPM to get any benefit from the fairing in the first place. So he may as well ride a naked standard after all.



Still, he is an expert on the subject.. or any subject. Just ask.

Fully adjustable suspension is great on the street, if you carry a passenger or luggage from time to time. -Sean

I have two bikes with the Hayes HFX 9 brakes. They are quite possibly the worst disc brakes I've ever tried on a bike.



There is a company called Hope that makes 2, 4 and 6 piston monoblock calipers coupled with floating rotors for Downhill and Freeride bikes. They seem to be the current state of the art for MB brakes. When the cash is good, I intend to upgrade at least one of the bikes to the 6-piston HOPE setup in the front and 4-piston in the rear. -Sean

Or if you weigh as much as I do, somewhere in the range of 220-230 lbs.

Default Exhaust gasses through the frame

I think Confederate does it throught the swingarm, though it pretty much amounts to a straight pipe.

And what's wrong with everyone riding Japanese 750 fours?



Most of the parts/repair places would be out of business, but is that a bad thing?



You can freeze 'em to the sidewalk, submerge them in a lagoon, set 'em on fire, etc...and they'll still start and run. And keep running.



Long live the Japanese in-line 4! Down with V-twins! Or any twin for that matter. The Olsen Twins being on top of that list.



I propose a new insight group be formed: MSAT, translated to Mad Squids Against Twins.

Default Re: tell Kawi you want it

I e mailed Kawi off their web site to bring it to the USA back in Dec. The write ups in the UK mags had me ready to lay $ down. If enough of you e-mail them, possibly it will show up here. Since then I bought a Buell Lightning XB9S and am thrilled I did. Sorry Kawi you snooze you lose.
