Your missing page 3, or it seems like your missing page 3. Almost no info about the day at the track, if were going to live vicariously through you guys you gotta give a little more about riding the bikes.

" he went crazy and installed ceramic wheel bearings ($395), and a host of titanium bits including sprocket studs, nuts, and lock washers. Why all the trick lightweight bits? “I don’t know. They sounded good at the time, so I bought them,”

Please have Mr. Ko contact me immediately regarding an incredible high-tech fuel-saving device he can install on his fleet of cars, trucks, and motorcycles.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Perhaps the dyno results would have been better with a HHO rather than pump gas.

Confused
 
What a waste of money. The dyno read is worse than a stock CBR 1000 and I am betting that head to head on the track the blade would toast both of them as well. They may look great getting a latte but thats about it. PS: Spending $1800 for ECU reflash and $$$ for a full system to lose 2hp

Not a total waste. Less weight and arguably better sound.

I'm sure some answer will surface for the loss of power.

Also the dyno results don't tell the whole story I'm sure.

Did I mention the high-tech fuel saving system is made of titanium and carbon-fiber? It is.

Any Space-Age Ceramics or Automated Nanobots powered by Miniaturized Ultra-Capacitors in there anyplace?

We all need friends like Mr. Ko...

I predict V-Four engines will become the dominant powerplant on sportbikes.

Because it's 1984.
