Serious question: What advantage does all this have over the stock system ?

Aside from SS spokes (which did not work for me when over-loaded).
Since the onset of the Super Ten born in 2010 I have been following all the forums looking for upgrades or mods to make our bikes better. One of them was your change of spokes and some reworking of the protections, but for serious mods I followed Greg (Wasp) and his bike transformation from a dull stock to a powerful machine including the excellent work of Woody's Wheelworks making a 21/18 wheel system with our regular hubs.
Why 21/18 'a la KTM' because as you know we have more options in off-road tyres but the main reason is better handling on all type of roads. Higher ground clearance is a plus also. Your speedo will almost be correct measuring speed.
What I really need now is a fuel efficient map to load in my PCV. Any help?
Cheers,
Roberto

and with some beautiful ladies that also ride bikes on a BBQ on Johnny Moto's place saying farewell to Trevor and Ken

Hey! I don't mind you following, it's this jumping ahead of me I have a problem with.


Nice. I'm not too worried. You don't call it the 'Black Pearl' for nothing.

You're very good. Do you mind contacting my deceased dad and ask him where he hid the money?
