Owners if the original 2007 build 8V's are huge, virile, collosi of men who stride through the riff-raff of lesser owners oozing their masculinity and priapic excess and......

It is also the perfect space to conceal a pair of unblemished and unsoiled goat leggings but we won't continue with that theme for fear of upsetting some of our more...'Delicate' contributors...........

Some of this rocks could end up in the cylinder, thus taking up space and reducing the swept volume, causing a performance loss. Tsk, tsk!

Well. Yes, yes I did! Very Happy

Actually the later clutches are I think a tad heavier but in all honesty apart from in circumstances like a track bike like yours a combination of higher compression ratio, different, closer, gearing and more overall torque mean that for most ordinary users the chasing of the eternally lighter flywheel has become a bit of a furphy.

I know that my bits of shit, both of which run 2012 motive units. Spin up just fine. What weirds me out is how the Turdio I can ignore the clutch pretty much both up and down the box! My G8 will punish me, especially on down changes if I fuck it up!

Why? I have absolutely no idea!

If you pull the clutch lever for more than a few seconds, you don't get the famous KLOONK (brick in a bucket of water) when you select first gear at the lights ... most of the time.

Wait, my neighbor's friend's daughter dates a biker who said that putting rocks in the cylinder increases compression and therefore, power (though it also increases the risk of engine knock).

Because you'll be bouncing off the rev-limiter from all the extra power? Best thing is, you can wash them too.

Think of all the tens of dollars saved on air filters

I used my K&N to filter the sun during the last eclipse.
