I have the stock 45 cause I went up to 48 and got some Moose Racing rotors. The last step is $19.00 worth of bolts that I hope to get this week.

The rotors are a stock replacement but look different.
I wanted to know if there was a performance difference as well?
Is one style of rotor better than the other?
E1 - bike looks sharp. Kind of shit time of year to ride.

Looks like it has a more soild construction and more pad contact patch. I know a lot of the race guys put a berringer setup on and that thing has no holes in it at all. I never dealt with any moose products honestly but it seems to be a pretty large brand. Try it out, no? Also looks like its the same size as the stock rotor so that means no caliper relocation bracket to deal with. Mostly what Ive seen for sumo set-ups is a larger rotor with the caliper bracket.

Recently made a run with 14/48 outside of Ridgway, CO, (about 7800ft) GPS verified 94mph and still gaining before I had to slow for a turn. Didn't want to look down at stock speedo for indicated speed, but i would assume it was close to what Zubar had mentioned in previous post of 103mph. I haven't bothered to balance my wheels so that was an interesting ride.

It is actually an OGIO flight vest.. although I have a camelbak bladder in it because the stock ogio bladder sucks.

I like it because of all the pockets in the front.. lets me balance my carry load back to front (and easy camera access )

Here you can see the upper front pockets


..and here the lower


The downside to it (especially with you being in texas) is the heat it can hold in (although the sides and the shoulder straps are mesh).
In all of these photos I have a full Leatt armor suit on under my jacket/jersey.

On the bike I am running Wolfman Daytrippers and a small rollie bag on the tail. I also have two primus fuel bottles that clip in if I need them.

The rollie bag has my rain jacket and rain gloves.

The daytripper bags are awesome - I have a front and rear tube, pump, full tool kit, tow strap, full size 14" tire irons, quick steel, etc etc - and they are only half full (they have cinch straps to secure the extra space). I never even notice them being there no matter how extreme the terrain. I highly recommend them.

Mine is 96mph at 5K ft in the stock setting with 75 less lbs and the FI hose leaking bad due to a bad o-ring.

the other two guys got them for there for the trip I was a bit hesitant. I prefer to stay lean and have done well doing that plus I was afraid of them getting in the way or flopping around too much. i think Ill ditch the waist bag and get one of these for the tools and fuel.

Pauls stuff is the best. I am thinking having paul send me one and trying to adapt my lighting to it. probably will end up being a fall project . I dont want to take that one before the trip.

Nice view

Don't know how strict the laws are where you are but I've solved bending issue by copying and laminating the plate. Works very well.

I used to do that too.. but then I had it explained to me that a police officer who was pissed and looking to wreck my day could get me in a lot more trouble for a "forged plate" than a bent plate.

At one point I rode around for 6 months with a plate snapped in half and had the other half in my tank bag. When I finally got pulled over for it I pulled out the other half and said "it just happened!" and he let me go
