Help with a little frustration?

so ive been wondering this for some time now. why, oh why do these bad manufacturers put out bikes with such engine issues such as a surge here and a lack of ____ range there and heavy steering and this problem and that problem? why would they knowingly approve these bikes for the showroom? i mean these are smart guys building these bikes and im sure they could overcome such issues. any answers out there?

epa regulations. That is the cause of surging and crappy mid range.

if they built a perfect machine....how will they sell replacement parts? how will shops sell their replacement parts? and if such a perfect machine was built....i think it would cost more than $10,000

plus i believe these manufacturers are in kahootz with the "BIG" aftermarket companies.

most liter bikes are not perfect and still cost 10,000. i agree with the aftermarket thing tho.


and im not asking why not perfect, im just asking why not better.

Production bikes are setup for street riding. For example, there's usually a flat spot in the powerband to allow for smoothness at cruising RPM/speed.

just like when you were a kid...

..all peices sold seperatly. throw on your full system, upgraded air filter, and go from there.

tires, dampers, shocks, forks, brakes, rearsets...

theres a million things you can buy to make your bike just how you want it. i sell em all for a living.

IMO, bikes are overpowered off the showroom floor. im all in favor of easy to un-install goveners and such. make it so the newbies arent looping it as soon as they ride out of the dealer parking lot.

riders with a little experiance and know how can easily do some mods, pull some off, put some on, and get rediculous amounts of power.

its not like new riders need it all anyways.

It would be easier if the companies made some euro bikes available here like the vfr400 and such. way cooler small cc bikes over there.
