With the porting and large carbs, the bike doesn't need big jetting changes over the course of the day. Engine pulls from 6000rpms up to 11000rpms. Really starts to pull strong around 7000rpms.

Great bike, strong engine, handles well. I'm moving on to other bikes, and need to sell this one. It's not the prettiest bike, and doesn't have the best paint in the paddock. But who cares about that crap. This is a fast bike.

$2800 for the bike alone
$3500 for the bike with all the spares


(the rest as links for you low bandwidth people...)

Some of the spares:

I've won a few trophies with it...
