N00B with a Titanium 05'

Just bought it about 6 weeks ago, and love it so far. Previously had everything from a 2-stroke RZ350, R6, CBR 954, and RC51. Been riding for about 9 years now, and always loving every minute of it!

another Ti 10 gotta love it and I wish mine were as clean as yours! Few tips...always search for stuff before you post it will save people barking on you and almost all stuff has been covered and cut down that pipe...I think it would look better with it shorter!

Florida has a poor job market! :headshake

Welcome bud, nice looking 1st gen ya got there......any plans on putting a steering damper on her anytime soon? it's a good idea if you do any hard riding at all cause they like to shake their head alot at speed!!!!! I had a leo on mine when i first got it and loved the look and sound, would still have it on there if i hadn't run across a great deal on a full system.

I like the Leo....more so now that i cut it down 4.25"! Didn't plan on a steering dampener just yet, but i will give it some thought. It's been pretty stable so far, but it did get a little hairy on one road that had some pretty quick transitions in elevation. I'm working on getting some new levers and rear tire now, and then i will look into the dampener. Do you suggest any specific brand?

I have a scotts but gpr makes good dampers too, the ohlins units off the 2nd gen will also work on our bikes BUT you have to get a fork tube bracket to hold the eyelet on the damper but the gas tank bracket will mount up fine i believe.i've heard mixed reviews on that stock ohlins though so maybe look or ask around if you decide to go that route. IF you're trying to save a little cash then shoot me a PM and i'll send you a link to some levers like the crg's or pazzo's BUT they're about a third of the price!!!
