....because turbo Zx10R's aren't looney enough...... let's add ice. Ya'll lost yer got damn mind.

...in a good way, though. :)

EDIT: Quick question for you though: how do the gen 4/5 transmissions stand up to 400+ hp levels? Are there upgraded parts involved there as well?

Attack life... it's going to kill you anyway.

Dude, that's perfectly reasonable on pavement, let alone ice. It takes me weeks worth of riding to acclimate to 8+psi boost levels if I haven't done it for a year or two.... even riding 'normal' bikes every day of the year. Just about every datalog review sounds something like,

Q: "Why'd you short shift the first couple gears? I thought you said you run it to 13K?"
A: "Because, snake brain.Try again next run."

Obvious upgrades are the clutch components, but as far as gears, forks, internals... all stock. Clutch pull on that thing is a workout haha. Feel like I can crush a brick in my left hand now just after an hour on that bike.

Impressive... Gives me hope for running a bigger snail on mine one day, though Dean mentioned that over 400ish hp on a Gen 2 and he started having transmission problems. It's amazing what you can get used to spring wise, though.... I think I have 50lb springs in my gen 2 stock basket/pack and it's held 14psi more than a few times. I too have no problem opening salsa jars with my left hand. :)
