well not hating on you, but the reason you dont see a lot of ppl doing it is cause it serves no purpose for a road bike other than aesthetics ("LOOKS" for the dumb crowd).

If it did, you'd prolly see a lot more of them on the street instead of mostly just the drag strip

Yeah, you were right to put your flame suit on.
It might not be to someone's taste, but it. Its not their bike.

I doubt you see too many 300s at the drag strip. Doesnt seem like you would gain a speed or traction advantage, but who knows?

If I had to venture a guess as to why you dont see many, I would say its a combination of them not being at the peak of their popularity as well as their probably not being a local shop "pushing" kits. I would reckon if a local/small shop built a reputation as being good with installing 300/330 kits then maybe youd see more around.
Just a guess.

missed his point.

he isnt saying people doing things for looks only is for dumb peeps

He is saying that the word that "LOOKS" is the dumb person replacement "word" for "asthetics"

I think this was a mis-communication. I think he pimpdaub was saying "dumb" in reference to folks who wouldnt understand the word "aesthetics."

i think many ppl don't ride 300s because of the stress it put on the bike. a 240 kit looks almost as nice, and it isn't so hard on the bike...plus i wouldn't put a big wheel kit on a 600, but to each their own. i have thought abt putting a 240 on the 10, but i won't until i get a second bike to put around on...

True that, but what hit me first was: 600? 300 tire? then I was like.. well, ok. Im sure that rear tire doesnt help its acceleration any. Looks aight tho. Im just a fan of clean/simple mods to an oem looking bike tho. Not hating.
