Update:

Really don't like the screen. It pushes the airflow up the middle of my helmet, and while the flow is smooth its also much higher velocity. There's a lot of pressure which makes riding...

Agreed. You can pull the entire front clip off as one piece. No need to separate the two side fairing pieces from the front fairing/headlight assy.

It's actually pretty easy if you don't try to...

This happens on the car forums I'm a part of too, and for good reason.

Yes, you could throw money at a 250 and make a little bit of power, but honestly it's stupid. There are minimal (almost...

Made this a while ago, but never took pics.


Used a macally dual port (1A each) USB adapter, which I pulled apart, added leads, and potted with epoxy. Picked this one because it comes apart with...

An installation I did a while ago. Never took pictures, but now I have some.

Used generic grip heaters. Used a novel switch position that I like.

nicecycle.com

Shipped about four days after ordering. They get bad reviews consistently for their fairing kits, but good reviews for customer service. Just fair warning.

Not necessarily true. Consider a car with a very large turbocharger. Reduce weight significantly and you might not load the car enough to spool the turbo, reducing the available power.

Actually, to add:

By reducing weight you're also reducing load. Reducing load could actually reduce power (since the power output is a function of load as much as anything else). It's conceivable...

Considering the bike is being held back primarily by drag at that point I doubt you'd see a significant difference, actually. I mean, shedding weight is of course a really good idea, but I don't...

Ayup.

For example, I don't understand why people are worried about "pulling" 6th gear. You don't run a dragrace in 6th. You've got five other perfectly acceptable gears for when you're not just...

It's a 250 four stroke single, who gives a **** about acceleration?

+1 is awesome for reduced buzzing on the highway. +1/-2 if you don't ride in the mountains.

Longer gearing makes the bike...

Delineating purely by displacement is stupid. The CBR500 is *nothing* like a 600 SS.

Are you saying an old 600cc shadow is a crappy learners bike? :rolleyes:

The 500r is a commuter. It's got...

I suspect a lot of you guys are mistaking the poor tip-in and tip-out of the fuel injection system for driveline lash.

There shouldn't be much, if any, slop in a cush drive, but I don't think a...

Use some actual lubricant and it will last longer.

I use WD-40 to clean it out and follow it up with some chain lube or oil, depending on what I've got. Anything will work, pretty much. I use...

There are no problems that could be caused by higher octane fuel other than a lighter wallet.

You need to use *at least* the recommended octane. Higher is pointless, lower is bad.
