Armour Bodies Bodywork: The fitment is excellent and they look great. The bike was getting a lot of attention while everyone was setting up. The combo of the body work and the paint job made it the best looking bike there.
Öhlins suspension: Handling was quick and accurate. You can place the bike where ever you wanted to and it’s easy to pick your line though any corner. Always felt controlled and inspired confidence. This is easily the biggest “experience enhancement” tool, it just makes everything better. Thanks again Joe!
Graves titanium exhaust: This one does it all. Lowers the weight, increases the power and puts people on the pit wall talking about awesome it sounds. Love it.
Bazzaz Unit with the works: The power, oh the power! For me this was less about maximum power output and more about how smooth and consistent it was. The bike has awesome mid range with a smooth increase in power all the way to redline. Made managing the rear end traction easy no matter where you were in the rev range. The extra power made passing easy and let me be a little more friendly to people by passing on the straight rather than edge by them mid corner. The quick shifter works very well, clean and crisp.
Ballistic 8 cell battery: More weight savings. I’ve had no issues with this, even after the winter break the 8 cell works just fine. I’m blaming the light weight battery for all the power wheelies in my 2nd session 🙂
Woodcraft Rear Sets: Great feel on the pegs with a solid lock in and lots of traction. They put your feet and legs right where they need to be. They crash well too, all I need is a left peg from the low side, everything else is still perfect … these are awesome.
Woodcraft Engine Covers: They look trick and actually work quite well. I was impressed with how well it held up. Probably good for another 2-3 low sides like this one, not that I want to find out.
Woodcraft Lever Guards: I know the value of these from my dirt track days, just gives the the added confidence if you get close to someone. Also, these saved both levers in the crash.
Woodcraft Clip-ons: Great position, great feel and great design. Easy to get on and off if needed, easy to adjust and easy to replace after a crash. These have been and will continue to be my personal favorite.
Spiegler Rennsport Brake Lines with Quick Disconnect: You always want confidence with your brakes and these just make it happen. No change in the feel all day for my brother or me, awesome product. Might have something to do with the fact that I had both the lines hooked up, thanks for the tip Brian.
Öhlins steering damper: I have not tried adjusting this yet because I never felt the need to. Initial input on the bars is fairly low but the stability is very good even over bumps that want to throw you out of the seat at almost full lean and setting down power wheelies when you didn’t have the bars straight (oops!). I found myself saying “Glad the damper is on there.” more than once.
Graves progressive throttle tube: This took a little getting used to but I love it now. The power comes on very quick but then becomes easier to manage right where you need it to.
Driven fuel cap: Trick part, I love the look of the cap and how quick it is to use which is important given how thirsty this beast is!
