    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:1drink 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.:wink:

    Not super easy but I beat the cat!

    Nice and clean bolt up once I got that header pipe shaved a little
    [​IMG]

    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...

    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! :D

    ROY, Did you see my sprocket test run report above?

    I almost staged a pic of DQ holding the air gun with 5 extensions hooked up to the sprocket nut for a joke. .. :D

    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 :lol3

    I saw JeffRides with a new (to him) bike today... But I guess he doesn't like to get online and brag about his new bikes like the rest of us... :lol3

    Ohlins 30 mil up front. This is jewelry in my world.

    JRi rear shock, this is a super nice quality piece. Extremely light.

    The bodywork is done and ready to have decals, numbers and product stickers added. Klrcaptain and Hybrid10 did an outstanding job on it.

    About 8 more weeks I'll shake her down at Talladega GP. I still have things to do, remove antifreeze, bleed front brakes one more time, add some DOT race Michelins, lose a few pounds and tone up the old body. This big 1000 is a handful at track speed.
