add some race fuel to the scenario....take a whiff of the smell along with the sound of the pipe.....and you will fall in love all over again. (if you've never smelled a bike running with race fuel....try it sometime, smells goooood )

Well, as of now I am addicted to nitro methane (r/c fuel) just smells so good. I'll try it when I get a chance to purchase some or after I wake up

I heard there is a way to mix r/c fuel with gas. A true fuel additive. I had done a research on it like 2 years ago but, never got to deep into it was to high off the fuel j/k (about the research)lol

are you mapped to run U4? i hope so.....or prepare for the engine carnage! U4 is oxygenated (sp?) fuel....basically a small shot of nitrous the whole time...which makes your bike run lean if not properly mapped for it.

it sure is. bout to get it remapped tho for the new exhaust and air filter. made 174 bone stock on u4. on the current tune by the previous owner. the bike is an ex-racebike, hence all the trick bits on it.

Hey guy and gals I decided to try out the 180 on the rear and I have to say it makes the bike feel a lot different. It feels more nimble and quick. It feels like it wants to go where you want it to. I decided to tell a friend who had a 190 on his rear about my experience and he wanted to see if it was just me, so he put a 180 on his rear and he just called me and told me that he also had experienced the same thing better maneuverability and a feeling of less friction from the tires.

That's what I've heard from the busa knee draggers on other forums... I'm not prone to alot of heavy cornering so I'll stick with my oversize for the time being...

the kat has a 155 I think and that thing feels like a ten speed compared to the busa.... weight is close to the same
