A nightmare until you got it tuned in perfect, then its cheating lol. I will agree with you on it being a hand clutch as soon as I get one. If I can ride it back to the truck...must be a hand clutch.

Yep, even kills the motor if you hold the front brake and throw the lever, gotta be a hand clutch . And that bottle hanging on the swingarm is for the airshifter . When are you gonna have your bike together?

A guy at work on a 14 was talking bout racing. He said I had to take out the bottle under the hump. He didnt even notice the 2.5 lb bottle in the swing arm. I said deal.
