Well I yanked out the entire battery, that silenced it. No idea how it's wired so trying to measure voltages around the bike is a bit tricky. It doesn't arm itself as long as the ignition is on but the battery is pretty tiny so the HIDs drain it fairly quick.

So, I changed the plugs tonight and put the bike back together... Fuck me what a job, took me two hours to get all the fairings on and aligned, the airbox is a right bitch to get in place and the jubilee clips that holds it to the throttle bodies are damn near impossible to get tightened properly but I eventually triumphed (pun intended) and got it out... Key in, anti-theft deactivation, starter button.......and it fired up on the first try! Just as I suspected, the plugs were just at the end of their life albeit at a very inconvenient moment.

Or was it?

Cause now that I`ve ridden the bike I can tell that after spending an awesome night with my dear friends till 3am, a bad night sleep and driving the van home for nearly five hours I would not have enjoyed the first ride as I did now. The ride through town was pure murder as this is a road tamed WSBK racer so the riding position is quite... racey? is that a word? race-ish, you get the point, low bars high butt high footpegs, that kinda deal... But when I got it at speed, whooo boy I tell ya, this chick does NOT want to go slow! The only word I can think of to describe the handling characteristics is sublime. I was riding through some corners that I have been struggling to get through holding 80km/h with the Daytona banking hard, this thing just effortlessly coasts through them like "was there a corner there cus I didn`t see it" with 110km on the clock! The "hump" at the tank sits nicely between your nuts and your guts letting you closer to the front than you would be otherwise able to, but if you want to go all out fetus position hugging the tank U gotta move your ass back or else the edge will drill into your stomach but I found the bike is more or less built for my sized rider so I don`t really see a point in crouching cause I`m already straight-arming it and still having to look slightly upwards while being completely covered by the windshield so there`s really no need to get any lower. I bet I won`t be doing any mile munching with this one but as things are I rarely have a chance to even throw a leg over so that`ll suit me fine, once the kids are a bit older I`ll have a second think about those grand tourers.

And now if you will, some Italian pornographics:









Oh and the pics were taken at the stroke of midnight to the minute. That`s more or less how dark it gets here in the summer (peak of darkness is around 2am so it gets a little darker for like 30mins before the sun starts climbing up again)

Oh and one more thing. The brakes, fuck me this thing damn nearly ejected me over the bars at the first crossroads! Four barrel brembos on all three spots makes this thing stop on a dime! I really got to re-learn how to brake as with the Daytona you had to grab a handful to get it to slow down as with this thing I can one-finger brake and still make the nose dive!

Does anyone have any experience on gear displays? This bike appears to be fitted with one but it seems to be somehow faulty as when in neutral it "spins the roulette" in the display and when in gear it's always at 4th. It doesn't say in the display what brand it is so can't search for a manual but there isn't any buttons anywhere in the shift linksge so it has to get the data electronically from the gearbox/ecu?

My guess would be Gipro. It calculates the gear using the speed and rev info.

Everything fits everything, just a matter of wits and will. Had to sacrifice the Austin Racing link pipe because the joint between the header-linkpipe is one of those over/under spring tensioned ones so it's super fussy about both the pipe diameter and wall thickness. Took me a whole stack of dremel discs to get the mesh pipe cut. I do have the fiber discs as well but take a wild guess have I lost the twist-click chuck...again. that's the third one...



Little cutting a bit of welding and that's that. Cut the old back leg off as the old front leg happened to be the perfect length for the back one here. Had to come in cause the kids are being lil bastards again, hoping to finish later today.

Small piece of regular exhaust pipe inside the slotted part to seal it and give it strength when I clamp down on it from the outside.





Yea OK it`s big but it`s this or no ride at all... Besides it`s roughly the same size as the original, just swept up a bit more. Sure made the bike shut up!

Just came back from a test ride. The looks may be debateable but the bike starts better, pulls better, has more torque and most of all sounds a HELLUVA lot better with this can than the Austin! Man it just doesn't stop to amaze me how this bike takes corners so effortlessly as if I'm riding 20-30km/h slower than I actually am. Gonna get rid of my license easy if I'm not careful! And GOTS to get this thing on a race track some day!

I'd be pretty surprised if anyone noticed that exhaust as not OEM. It fits well, and even if it's a bazooka it looks decent to me.

What's it look like under the pretty skirts? Could you fighter one of these? You know, if you had to.
