From what I have seen, we should tell EVERY person who comes to this site with his newly acquired RC TO CHANGE THE GEARING IMMEDIATELY before he starts bitching about everything.

It makes you wonder why Honda put the bike out like that. Maybe it was to claim a big top end speed. It's really hideous with the stock set up.

I'm having the 15/42 put on tomorrow - in BLUE sprocket and chain. Can't wait to feel the difference over stock.

Is there some place where I can calculate different gear ratios? It would be fun...

suspension question

I've asked this in other threads, but I think they get buried. I'm starting mods now on the bike, but don't like how the suspension works. I guess I will mess around with the settings and see what...

The 'seat of the pants' change from stock to Moris is really noticable. I did not expect that. It is not subtle at all. And the sound is really the best. Sounds like a beautiful 999 going up the...
