People think you need big power, bullshit! I had a detuned ZX-10R and still didn’t use all the power. My Pikes motor made 15 less hp than my short circuit motor and felt faster. We made a motor that started pulling at way lower rpm and had a very smooth delivery. We ran a normal Kawasaki kit ECU with a very mild TC setting: I like the bike to spin but not go into a cloud of smoke. Don’t get me started on TC settings! You still see MotoGP guys highsiding!
