Cycle Stop Racing : they have old flipping bikes out front (all customers) and the race bike they built out of an old 82' 1100 ... only did 9 seconds in the quarter with wheelier bars and all that,

old man is nice, they're just pricey and need to get updated real fast,

i'd go them for nuts and bolts, but no parts or service..

Well thank you Chris for giving me a used front tire in great shape, and helping me take off the front wheel and finding me a place to unmount my old tire and mount the new one (cost 10 dollars)

I found out my bike is running rich cause of the power commander (bogging down low and bad gas mileage)...

My bike was actually running lean down low ..

The local shop I flamed (i react quickly) wasn't even open today, but I caught him at the store doing some extra work on a customers bike and asked him to help me with my PC, and he comes out, starts my bike, listens, pushes a couple buttons on the PC .. and now it's running with more power, it's not bogging, and he did it for free ......

well guess there is more to that store than just expensive tire mounting

it's not bogging down at all, and It feels alot more smooth all throughout the powerband, instead of power just snapping on after it bogs down, it comes on smoothly, actually improved my starting from a dead stop, cause the bike wasn't trying to die from it being lean....


might even get better gas mileage, but i'm still gonna take it up to Motorcycles Unlimited to get a real test and tune w/ map ... this is just a good experience with this local shop (literally across the street from me) figured i'd report it

what is wrong with X-it??? I took my bike there once, they are alright, they did the work I wanted them to do... but I probably won't go there again as the per hour charge there is higher than the dealer charge...
