Experience: 10+ years
Trackdays: 10+

79 XS650
08 EX250R (race)
14 MSX125
88 YSR (race)

The SV is set to about 2500. A V-twin is already know for a lot of engine braking. Since there is no slipper, it helps reduce wheel hop when downshifting / heavy braking.

Works a treat for me since I'm not much of a "blipper"
