Placed the orders today ... I want to make something to play with on test and tune days but not so extreme to ruin it as a street bike, and it has to be legal, and I want to keep it all easily reversible. Turbo/nitrous are not happening.
Starting off with a stock bike, as far as performance goes, steering damper and PCIIIusb and 4 short velocity stacks, and the secondary butterflies are out, are the only things not bog standard.
Rider weighs too much (100 kg / 220 lbs)
quick shifter for the Power Commander
bolt on swingarm extensions (What should I set it to)
longer brake line
17/45 gearing with longer chain
lowering links (What should I set this to? Has to remain streetable ... an ill handling pig is not acceptable)
front strap kit
Already figured out how much the forks can be slid up in the triples before the bump stop potentially becomes the bottom of the upper fairing. I do not want that to happen. Looks like it can be lowered only about 10mm from stock height - no more. (remember ... has to remain streetable and safe) I'll do the rest with the strap so that it has acceptable bump travel for street.
Working on getting clearance to the rear fender - was all stock - found out that the steel bracket for the license plate has the same hole spacing as the stock license plate light, so I'm making use of that ... signals are staying and the license plate is going to remain lit and it's even going to have all of the required DOT marked reflectors, I don't want any excuses for the piggies to take it off the road.
Haven't decided if or what I'm going to do with the exhaust yet ... this has to remain a legal bike and around here that's starting to mean SAE J2825, the stock exhaust passes but with not much margin. Slip-on with the servo valve in the header staying there may be OK.
suggestions welcome ...
