    May be time to quiet the bike down a bit.

    So I have a Kerker exhaust on the bike and I absolutely love it! The sound is awesome and it's loud! Problem is my dad REALLY dislikes how loud it is and some of my neighbors aren't too fond of it either. So are there any mufflers that keep that same lovely sound and just tone it down...

    It's possible I've lost my mind a bit, but the Vmax is on Craigslist...

    http://syracuse.craigslist.org/mcy/2488498497.html I'm still not quite sure how I've ended up at this conclusion in my mind, but the VMax might be moving on. It's really a combination of a few things. Work at home starting for me next month will eliminate my 60 mile round trip commute. This...

    COPRUNNER's computer bit the dust!

    Got a call from Timmy this evening, there was a total power outage in his town today....everything went down! Somehow the thing cooked his computer so he'll be out of commission for a few days. I'm fairly certain it's an NSA conspiracy but he says no.....there's No Such Agency! :confused2:

    A bit of a head scratcher

    The bike has been running rough after a rejet and a bowl level adjustment so we tried to do a sync. Upon putting that morgan carbtune on it we notices no vacuum reading out of carb # 2. You had to goose it to 3K to get it to read anything. We cracked the airbox and noticed that the diaphram was...
