Ill give you $2 per cc, your choice of scoot... You'll get some much needed space.

TerrorTech makes a bracket to do that. It's on the list. Not planning on getting too crazy with muddy riding, though, but riding with you guys, you never know. :eek:

Weather sucks, football is driving me crazy

So what to do, why hell just mount a new Michelin Anakee II on the rear of the Super Tenere. Only had 4 beers prior damn shaft drive is so easy. Let me grab another beer.....



BTW logged 8k out of the Anakee II I took off. Can't say my footpegs and kickstand faired that good from the outrageous lean angle these tires allow the big pig to lay down.

DE-CAT done !!

Not super easy but I beat the cat!

Cat dropped and the killer visible


Nice and clean bolt up once I got that header pipe shaved a little


Finished look, it sounds great! That Yosh pipe is nice. Bike FI is about the same but I got plans to have the ecu tuned so it's going to get a whole lot more power. 130 hp at rear plus I'm hoping.



Just need some tires to mount and I could ride. That'll happen Thursday, holidays are killing me.

It looks the same, so no pics, but 15T sprocket is on the Tiger. Can't wait to try it out tomorrow...

He ain't sure yet with no test ride

Beginners luck may have saved him this go around



Next question I'll be asking is "what's that puppy ginning rpm wise at 70 mph"


And will it wheelie.

In 6th gear: (speedometer dash reading)

70MPH = 5300RPM

78MPH = 6000RPM

Guestimates taken on Spillway and for illustrative purposes only.

And to answer your question, Roy: YES!

Yea seen it, numbers are not to bad. That's in line with what a 750 Suzuki typically sees -1 up front. -1 is equal to 300 more rpm give or take a few.

Y'all should have tried the air at least once and maybe luck would have been on your side. Splitting the cases ain't hard
