Just added a '00 to the stable. Need some info, read the FAQ but these are still questions. Does anyone use a standard master link and what is your experience? I am in central Alabama and have no desire to push this beast because of a clip coming off. The bike has 13/52 gearing and the front looks real tight around the countershaft sproket...was thinking about 14/52 instead...thoughts. The bike has racetech springs front .49g and rear 11.0, I weight 220 plus 10 for gear, any thoughts? Have ridden, and have raced, but not for quite a few years Called Barnums, got the machine.....is Honda the only place to get the HRC exhaust tip? Greasing the front steering bearings today and am checking all bolts! The foot peg was OK but the kickstarter was way loose! Great group!
