Greetings all you Kwackers. I just purchased a spanking new '14R abs 10 days ago here in Southern California. This 4,000 rpm break-in is a pain in the arse! Stupid cagers tail gate me on the freeway even though I'm in the slow lane.
I plan on keeping this bad boy pretty much stock, for at least 9 months before I upgrade anything (other than tires of course). If I do, make changes, it'll be suspension upgrade 1st, maybe clutch/brake levers 2nd and braided brake lines 3rd. Yeah, I'm actually gonna leave the stock pipe on and leave the engine/ electrics alone. Plastics and drilled bolts application before I do a track day.
I almost bought the S1kRR, but couldn't agree on a $$$. Also heard about some of their electrical issues so sayonara to that choice. I've never owned a liter bike (sport bike), but I still have and am keeping my KTM990S. Also had the 600r (sold) and my ZX-7 (still have). So, obviously the 7 is underpowered (94 hp's), I decided to bump to a liter bike.
So, track day school awaits. I also have to lose some weight before I stuff my fat behind in my old suit.
I do like researching all of the good info on this site. But just one thing...dayum you gotta really crouch to ride this scoot.
