You mean righthanders.


If you want the breakdown on fuel management systems, take some time to read this thread.
For a walk through on pulling FI Codes, check out this thread.
Questions about Flashed ECUs vs. Fuel Controllers? Try this one.
Got a Z-Fi TC System? Read This to get an idea of how it works.
Here's a link to some Kawasaki Service Manuals that I've got hosted for everyone's use.
And please check out my blog for more sage advice and technical ramblings.
Some basics about braking here.

I have still got 10-15mm on both sides on my new Pilot Road 2. I have hit the cs limit on my commute - there are some good corners but they are blind - value my life too much to take them any faster. Driveways and potential traffic queue issues. Have some reasonable twisties not far away going to hit it on the next warm Saturday.

My old tires were crap. But my new ones feel great. I have only rode them for about 6 miles, but I should be able to get a couple good days of riding in next week. Strips should be minimal after that. Its raining today, the day after I get the new tires on. This sucks

if your knee sliders aren't sliding, you're going to have chicken strips.

Setp one: Obtain 5-8 squares of clean, dry toilet paper.
Setp two: some prefer to neatly fold while others prefer the "wad" technique, but you need to condense the squares into a thicker unit of TP.

...do I really need to continue?
