Props man!!
mine still hasn't came in but I got to see one at IMS.

And the guy with the Ice wheelie is a local and a super cool dude. He's a bike fanatic and has been flying over to england yearly to compete for the world fastest wheelie for the past few years.

The ZX10 that Jason Farrell set the record on is Cecil's bike.

Thanks guys.

Now all we need are some 50-60 degree days.

Power delivery is so sensitive I wouldn't dare taking this to Jennings this winter. I need at least 1000 street miles on the thing before I bank it over in any type of corner.

The exhaust canister weighs just under 19lbs.

According to reports, removing the CAT doesn't give you any more horsepower. Brock tuned an H2 with a slip-on and got 250hp with pump gas, an ECU flash, and a PCV.

I think with the same setup I can get close to 260hp if I have a map made with VP Motorsport 109 (unleaded/Oxygenated - safe for a CAT). A full system with headers will get me the last 15 horsepower and be in the ballpark of 275hp. If I don't flash the bike and I still mod the exhaust and create a custom map I think I can realistically hit 220HP at the wheel with race fuel.

Regarding the exhaust, I can order the exhaust now but whenever I make a major purchase I like to let some time pass in between before I start spending money again. So I think I'm going to just break in the bike and get comfortable on it before I start modding it. This thing is a BEAR to control while leaned over. Crack that throttle at your peril. You have to stand the bike up first before getting back on that gas. Otherwise you best be at maintenance throttle.


The other thing is that I bought an extended warranty for $1,500 for a total of 5 years but if I flash the ECU I void the warranty. Grrrrrrrr So I'm kind of annoyed about that because I wanted to go to the Ohio Mile and try to join the 200mph club this year.

Flash it back to stock if any warranty claim is needed?

Yes, I think what I am going to do is buy a spare ECU that will be flashed along with a full system. So if down the road if I ever want to go back to stock I will be able to with no issues.

^ That is a great plan.
I thinking they can tell if it's been flashed.
