What did you have done at KWS? I'm on their list to for early March. I'll have Mike install a thinner head gasket, degree the cams, tune it, and maybe some chassis work by swapping the steering offset....maybe a few more things depending on available cash. How long was your bike there?

Sorry, havenít checked in from the track in a couple days. Looking to get suspension done here at the track.

Mike installed my kit harness and ecu, dyno tuned a race fuel and pump map, and also did all of his zx10 guru goodies like master relo, reg relo, tank mod.

At 200hp+ on pump, my lack of talent and old age doesnít deserve a kit gasket and cam timing. Youíll be happy with Mikeís work if you havenít had that experience yet. He did all my stuff on a Friday and I was home with the bike that night. I would guess the motor work would take another day.

The race fuel map he did outshines my present race bike by a 100hp. Yours will no doubt be tearing up the asphalt with that build. Highly recommend KWS
Cheers

Do those race fairings have cutouts for headlights?

The more you learn, the more you realize how little you know.

No, donít see too many night races myself. And for mine, Iím not sure if the plug is still there on a race kit harness, Maybe

DrippinWet did send me some vinyl ones to stick on. Might save the paint from some stone chips.

Thermosman was nice enough to mount rear shock on Saturday. Thought it was a bigger job than it was. Rolled it to him with bodywork, seat, and tank off, then he had it in in a few hours.

Gettin there.

Saw that I didnít really answer your question. There is a definite impression outline of headlights, but no cutout or perforations to remove any part of the body work.
