Interesting. I'll have a look to see how he might have done that. I see some screws on the side (?) where normally there aren't any. As I said, was planning to just ditch the little cowling piece, it looks like the stand tucks in pretty well...

I had one briefly.



It was the fastest bike in Vegas, but it sucked off road so I dumped it at the pawn shop.

Nitrous? I don't see a turbo exhaust on there...

How many links does that chain have, about 400?

Now you're onto something. I'll be at Glamis on T-Day, if I rolled that thing up to competition hill with a paddle the crowd would go crazy!

The bike is gone and I don't know where it ended up.

Just did a weekend escape to Palm Springs, only direction in which it seemed it "might" be somewhat warm. Ooooohhhhhh.... I REALLY like this bike!

Yes. It came with the Helibars, Buell footpegs and a taller Zero Gravity windscreen when I bought it last April. I added the EBC rotors and HH pads. It stops now.

HH Pads and Braided lines on mineHeli Bars, DBScreen, GSXR Pegs, Gel Seat (Comfy). Bike has minor performance mods, Yoshi RS3 Slip Ons, K&N, Small Box Mod and degree'd cams, 170Hp/110Tq. Bazzazz Performance Designs box is next. May end up doing a better exhaust as well but I am thinking real hard about leaving my 99 alone and finding a project Busa to do as a street fighter/turbo machine.

I keep thinking about some performance modifications. Then, I ride the damn thing and wonder really? why?

Just happen to have one for sale. A '99 Copper/Silver one, with a Hahn turbo and water injection.

Excellent condition. Wouldn't consider selling it but I've developed a bone marrow problem.

Man thats Pretty. And subtle, You can barely see the turbo. ECS tuned? What are the numbers on it and just out of curiosity what are you asking?
