I scraped today 3 times and have gotten slow wheelies down a lot better. On the 3rd scrape I tried to park it but my hand slipped off the clutch so the bike shot out and crashed. Well it was alot of fun and its nice to make progress again.
I have a crash cage which took the all of the fall, it broke a bolt and bent a bolt on it but saved the frame, cases, and rear sets from braking. I only have a little 4-6 inch scratch on the front left fairing around where the blinker would be. I will take some pics, but it will be next weekend beore I can take them.
Yeah the cage is from them. Its pretty good, the only draw backs are you have to relocate the overflow bottle and you have to cut holes in your fairings. I just got rid of the overflow bottle all together. When your doing 12's do you have your bike idled up? I couldnt get them until I idled the bike up pretty high,(have no gauges so dont know rpm) and would clutch it up and then because of the idle I was just using the rear brake only.
I have extended sliders that I had to move the overflow too. I actually just cut up my left fairing a little and slid it forward. I can stil 12 fine with the idle low but its a lot smoother with my idle up. For no throttle hand I have it at about 6000.
