I liked that lil ZRX too. Give that Yoshi pipe to a less fortunate Suzuki boy though, and that 12R will be nice and sexy.

Yep, the Rex has been a great bike, but I'm greedy and want more power Upgrading the bike made more sense to me than going with the big bore kit on the Rex. In the past, I never really though I could deal with the seating position on sport bikes, but last month, when I was able to ride Johns R6 for a day around the hill country, I was pretty surprised to find that a more agressive seating position didnt bother me as much as I thought it would. So it's all John's fault that the ZRX is getting replaced

Thanks - I'm not much for wheelies though. I like to keep that front tire on the ground

The 12 seems pretty smooth in the corners and easy to hold a line, but it feels heavier to pitch around and seems to have slower steering than the Rex, even though they are close to the same weight. Of course the Rex has Racetech/ohlins/scotts w/ flipped ecentrics (sp?) and setup for my weight - so it aint exactly stock suspended, like the 12 is. I'll definetly work in some suspension upgrades to the 12 down the road...

The Yoshi can will probably be cut down about 5 inches (I like to hear the exhaust). Anyone who wants the end that gets sliced off, is more than welcome to it
