You would be surprised of the clearance actually. I'm not a club racer or anything, but I don't have chicken strips either. The Clip ons really help get me off the bike in the corners.

Vortex 52mm Clipons
Leo Vince single 06 GSXR Can, chopped and gutted stock midpipe with relocated O2 sensor. Engine light went off after about 20 min of riding.

Need to be tuned cause there is a big flat spot half way through the revs. But it sure does sound mean!

Hey beat,
Where abouts in Ptld. are you? I'm outside of Oregon City. I'm always looking for riding buddies. Shoot me off a PM offline if you want.

I just put on the M4 in carbon. It runs OK with the stock tune, but I'm gonna try the TOR tune as soon as I can get over to the shop. Do you deal with Cascade or Ptld.MC? Cascade folks are great. I wouldn't deal with anyone else.

Looks like your looking for a new plate hanger and hugger just like I am.

Sup!

I live in Vancouver and work downtown. If your looking for more peeps to ride with you might want to check out

sportbike site
Some goof balls on there, but I've actually met some cool people there.

I got my bike at Portland Moto, but I don't really deal with anyone.

So are you running a PowerComander?

Beat,
I'm pretty picky about who I ride with too. There's too many 'squids' out there. The small group I ride with are very experienced, professional and quite fast. We're careful just where and when we wick it up.

I still have the stock tune and no PC or TB. I need to get the factory TOR tune in it and see how it works. I'm not wanting to spring for another $300.+. It looks like both our exhaust systems should flow about the same and would probably respond to whatever tune about the same. I'll let you know how mine runs when I get it re-tuned, or if you get something done first, let me know.

Sounds like we ride about the same. I'll keep ya posted on my Tripple progress.
I have some buddies that meet up on every other Friday night at Kellies Olympian, usually ride there and just eat nightime breakfast, and look at everyones bikes. I'll shoot you a PM next time I go.
