That guy. Another forum I'm on actually gives you a warring that you're about to bump an old thread.

But back on topic. My old '90 Ninja 1000b made 140hp at the rear.

Bike lost to mechanical stupidness. Anyone got a bike they wanna sell?

Given the inverse square laws I can't believe these engine modifications give that much more speed. The take exponentially more power to go geometrically faster. An edge in racing perhaps, but only so.
