No, that's actually pretty and done well. Harsh critic on busa and big kawasakis. And not just saying....that looks good.

Meh I'm working on getting it up in 2nd. Thinking going down in the front and up out back. This bike is blustery at 140 plus. Don't even like it at 155. Feels like a space ship compared to the SV. Be a while before I pass anyone doing wheelies on 610 lol!

If they're offended, they need to get the sand out of their vaginas. Seriously. No matter - you're entitled to your own opinion. We all have them and they all will offend somebody at one time or another. True story.

I love it over my SV. The suspension is not quite as stiff as I'd like though. Fit is good (6ft 180). Brakes are good but she nose dives way worse than the SV. Power is nuts. I've just done air box mod and chopped the an by 5". On nearly new tires I've indicated 155mph so far, with more to go, just gets hairy at 140 or so with the wind. It will wheelie all day in 1st.

The one downside that I'm currently conquering is the famous vibrating front plastic at 5000-8000rpm. It's BAD. You can hear it with helmet on through at least 4th gear. They did not make enough anchor points, the whole gauge pod sits in a loose rubber housing and there's no obvious place where I can tie all the pieces in and stop the buzz. Probably just going to remove the plastics, fasten as best I can and start filling the voids with an expanding foam then shave to fit/look right. Shouldn't be able to see it from the exterior when I'm done and hopefully it will just look factory-ish when I'm done.

Ill have the power commander, pipe and ceramic coated exhaust system in the next few weeks. Have a thread chronicling that. Should have some top end then and smooth out a little on the low end. Expecting it to come up it second much better then. Thinking about dropping in the front and adding in the rear for a little more pull. Ill keep you posted!
