no i didnt drill the holes in the box cover....it showed up like that. not so fond of it..throttle response is kinda off, im blaming the cover....might try and jet it a bit more or adjust the acc pump, or jsut look for another cover.

gotta find some pro-bends that have the little slider thingy...the bark busters came with it. easy enough.

i will say this bike stops better than anything i have ever ridden. hard on the brakes it easily lifts the rear wheel, pending on body postition the bike tries to come around.

wheelies ok, doesnt lift like before in 2-3-4th, but had a 54t rear on 18" wheel, need some gearing change...granter said possibly go down in the front?? sometihng like 3 up for one down??

waiting for oil cooler, adds a quart so i can go roughly 1k miles on a change,
while apart for cooler ill throw trailtech flywheel and stator at it...

win.

My last ride I finally broke one of the turn signals all the way. I was going to take it into work to fix with the CORRECT tools but got carried away at home.

*still had one replacement from you without the connectors that i'm going to use.

I ended up ordering 2 from Customled.com. I was a little worried because they wanted Paypal so I set up an account and used it for the first time. Ended up fucking up. They were cool about it and fixed my mistakes. Also shipped me 4 instead of 2. Nice company!

theres been talk of it....and SO many people saying it would never happen.

i honestly appreciate it. sheds some light for some.
especially for the fact that from the sounds of it are going to go after all manufacturers

Basically brand new, 2000 miles, fresh avon distanzia tires, fmf q4 exhaust, power commander, drc edge taillight kit, led blinkers front and rear, moose racing roll chart, acerbis handguards. AIS removed, air box mod/flapper removed. An absolute blast to ride on the street. A complete steal at this price with all of these mods done within the last two months. Test rides with cash in hand only. IF THIS AD IS STILL POSTED THEN THE BIKE IS STILL AVAILABLE. I will take down the ad the minute I have sold the bike. The only trade I would even consider is a 2006 or newer Aprilia Tuono but absolutely nothing else. Please email or call 320-224-2973. Serious inquiries ONLY. Price is firm. Come and get it.

yes. thats how it works. ecc is an entity all of its own. as far as ecc is concerned there is no world outside the confines of the vbulletin software which runs it. what happens on ecc stays on ecc and what happens outside ecc doesn't exists.
