Re: No wonder I'm so slow....

BTW... the big problem is that my bike is still mapped for my Yosh system but I had to put the stock back on after my crash last year.

I had my bike dyno'd at 94.8 in Sept 2003 with just the Yosh and no PCIII... So I bet when it was mapped properly to the Yosh pipe I had around 96hp or so. I guess I have my excuse for sucking out now, haha.

Re: No wonder I'm so slow....

what kind of dyno? could be a chance that the readings are actually lower than what you posted because of the dyno used :eh:

Re: No wonder I'm so slow....

It's sarcasm Tim... I'm just trying to find a scapegoat as to why I seem to have hit a brickwall and can't drop below a 2:05. right:

pin the throttle down and never let goooo!* :biggthumpup: :laughing6:

Next time you come out of turn 3 you can make a quick left through the esses and come right up to the horseshoe... You may even be able to beat Ty's record that way.

As long as you don't push yourself you should be fine. Speed comes with time bro... give yourself a few trackdays and then start concentrating on your lap times.

ROFL, whenever he does make it out to a trackday I'm sure he will start to see things differently. Some of the guys out there are crazy fast.
