I took a rock in the radiator over there. It sprayed the front rotors and I couldn't stop. Luckily I didnt have to. One more good turn and I would have been done.

If I knew there was that much gravel, I would have slowed down. Road pilot 3's really stick to the road, and throw rocks like a shotgun.

I blame the Z-BOMB.
Or maybe karma from your camera messing up my 600.

Since I have it all apart, I am going to do some upgrades to gain more HP
I am going to flash my ECU (should I shave first?)
Then I am going to cut a few wires
Then I will block off my smog system
Also drill holes in the air box and air filter ( mo air=mo powa)
Then I will put a few z bombs
And maybe a PC 6 for additional fine tuning

These mods will give me an easy 25 HP gain (I got this from a very reliable source and its on a forum too)

And also some blue coolant and purple oil. = 6 HP gain

Now I know how those gp bikes make that HP. The secrete is out mofoos
