  1. 17/18 GSX-R1000R - Are they really notorious for tank slappers/wobbles/head shakes?

    2017 GSX-R1000
    Here's a good explaination from Dave Moss... I think he's a good guy to listen to. I think he knows his stuff. :)

    My technique is/should be the same as everyone who rides.... I don't try to man handle the bike with the steering inputs. I don't mess with the geometry of the bike/suspension without knowing what I'm affecting. One of the best things you can do is ride the bike with the best coordination you...

    I have the '17 R model and have had it in every type of acceleration configuration on and off the track... wheelying out of a corner and coming down on the front wheel on the brakes into corners.... no tank slap or wobble ever, yet.

    I've been seeing this trailer sitting in a lot for house trailers for about 2-3 weeks now.. do you have one stolen? This area has no motorcycle buisnesses or motorcycle events.....
  6. Beautiful

    That is a beautiful bike! I'd be afraid to ride it for what it was made for, for that price though!

    Haven't been to the track in a little over 5 years... But I'm about ready to hit it again.. BUT.. I think I'll put a few more miles on the ODO before I go.. LOL Got the Brembo 19 RCS master installed and Spiegler brake lines... much better! Just got my Michelin Power RS tires today... It's...

    I do have a heating and cooling system for the scope itself to keep it thermally stable. You'd be surprised how much temperatures even 2 degrees will affect focus and boundary layer air turbulence on the surface of the mirrors. The CCD chip I keep cooled to -30C to decrease the thermal noise...

    Today I just finished up another project... I usually do galaxies, but I also do nebulae.... This one is the Wizard nebula in Narrow Band colors... The filters only let through a narrow band of the light spectrum within 3 nm of the doubly ionized Oxygen frequency (OIII) and the Ionized Sulfur...

    Thanks and glad you like it... As for ET activity.. nope, never seen any of it. Although, if you look at any of the galaxies I posted, I truly believe that in each galaxy, there are countless planets with basic and advanced life on them. The odds are just to much in their favor.

    This one is a really impressive image.. This is the Arp 1656 galaxy cluster. There are hundreds of galaxies in this one image which is about the same size in the sky as the full moon... This cluster actually has over 1000 galaxies in it and is about 336 million light years away.. Keep in...

    Yeah, no kidding, it's an expensive hobby... I have around 100K in it now...

    This one is an interesting galaxy.. This is M33 or the Triangulum galaxy. It's pretty close to us so you can actually see some stars in it as well as a plethora of nebulae inside it. This is more detail than you can get on about any other galaxy in the sky.. The size of this object in the sky...

    This one is called the Crescent nebula.. it's the remnants of a supernova explosion long ago... https://www.astrobin.com/full/294909/0/ Here is a link to most of my astrophotos on a website called Astrobin. https://www.astrobin.com/users/Aircrftr/

    It's so freaking hot here in Oklahoma that riding has basically been zero. The other hobby I've been doing for a long time is Astrophotohraphy. I thought since there isn't much action on the bike front, I'd share some of my astro stuff with you all... I have a 10'X20' observatory with a...

    I've flown all kinds of airplanes from general aviation to commercial airliners... but put an RC in my hands and it's time for instantaneous kinetic disassembly.....
  18. Growing up sucks

    Track Days
    Myself, I'm 57 now and just getting back into it after a 5 year hiatus. When I retired from my career in 2013 I decided that I was getting too old to do this, not to mention the physical risk when paying for your own insurance.. But like many here, I've been riding all my life and couldn't...
  19. Extra loud noise - look at the video

    2017 GSX-R1000
    Not if adjusted per the manual. That valve is to help with power at high RPM when it opens up. It should stay closed at low to mid range RPM's. SO... if you over adjust it to be more open, then the low and mid range power will suffer.
  20. Looking for a good suspension setup guy in Tulsa

    Southwest
    I've been out of it for about 5 years now and just got a new bike. There used to be a good setup guy who worked at K&N who done a great job when I met him at Hallette.... I don't even remember his name. Anyone know of a setup guy who knows his stuff?
