Looks to me that the young lad at the bottom is leaning against the bike that should have made the shootout.

I leared how to adjust the primary and now for me it's no maintenance 'cept for the stuff I can't adjust (like the TPS).



Eveything else (Cables, fork oil, brake pads etc) is comsumable so it's just like a jap bike in that respect.



Picture a giant minibike with a 984cc Briggs. But you know that already...

All the reviews and spec sheets say the 919 rear shock is adjustable for preload only. I bought a fresh from the crate (a few tenths of a mile) 2006 919 and there is a rebound adjuster on the lower right side of the rear shock.

I can't decide which one I like. Send me one of each and I'll get back to you in a year.

Damn that Z1000 and FZ1 look sexy. That said, I have a hankerin' for a Guzzi Griso or Buell Ulysses... for more torque than HP pleasure.

Default Are We Missing Something?

How would an SV650 be considered "Open Class"? Of course, you might be thinking it's an SV1000S, but that bike ahs clip-ons and too much fairing to be a Standard in our book.

The Buell transmission is different, but completely acceptable.
