ran my bike at US41 today..

[email protected] was my best..

bike is bone stock, with stock gearing. the only mod is a 1/6th turn throttle, and disabling the flapper valves in the intake and exhaust.

Very respectable time, especially on a bike with such a short wheelbase.

How much extra downforce did the flapper removal create?

And i just ordered the part to regain the top end. basically american honda changed the hp peak from 13.2k to 10.2k to pass EPA noise standard.
