Of course they say that.

GoMotocoaching is just as good as the three day California superbike school.


20mm kits are an OEM upgrade. They are not near full carts.

But for the cost they are good upgrades.

They are not the gas cartridges, but they are a complete cartridge kit. http://www.traxxion.com/ak-20axxioncartridgekit.aspx

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

I got a great deal on my 20mm kit. Did I NEED it? probably not, but I wanted the extra confidence. The bike does feel a LOT better than it did last year, but I doubt the valves did it all by themselves. Having the rear shock revalved definitely helped a LOT with tire wear, but the front end I contribute to raising the front end as well as the valve kit, but mostly from raising the front end.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

Got all all the new shit in, neat and tidy, plug-n-play. Kicker speakers sound much better with the new touchscreen, even without an amp.





Hehehe





Now I can watch the classics on the way to the track lol

You suck at both, how the hell were you leading anyway? You know they say an engine runs it's best right before it blows. Maybe it was "I'm about to die" horsepower

I don't suck at both, just BP. My starts have gotten much better ever since the start of this year. I took Chris' advice and started getting much better launches ever since.

You know you could have just said, hey thanks for signing me up for a front row grid spot first thing in the morning there sparky

If I have not yet properly expressed my thanks for that, then

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3



Making a small leap here, I listed both my bikes for sale. Try to get the word out some. Think those prices are reasonable? I need to sell both so I can get some cash to race either light weight or ultra lights next year.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

Are you hoping that if the average speed of the whole grid is slower you'll be more competitive?

And think what prices are reasonable?

Track bike $3500 with all spares

FS: 2002 GSXR 600 track bike

Street bike $3500

FS: 2002 GSXR Telefonica Movistar

I'm expecting people to try to talk me down, so you shoot a little higher. Prices are negotiable and so are the spares included. Lots of room to work.

I think these are some great prices for what you're getting.It would be better though if you were selling it in Spring time instead IMO.

Slightly NSFW, but I watched it here.
