Tl1000r

Looks like a really nice stock bike only a few noticeable bolt ons.
With a speedo that goes up to 185 how can you tell it hits 230?

I went down one tooth up front and up three in the rear I can hit 150-160 but I have re-mapped it have the treby Ivan and some other goodies. Hell with speedo error I might be hitting 140 who knows....


He's just trying to find a fool with money...

Clearly he's hoping most bidders aren't as smart as you and me.

on a V twin, and one with a 185 top indicated speed on the speedo, unless he's got a GPS unit and some drastic gearing changes, its not possible.

life is but a way of killing time until you die. why care how you live, just have fun while you can.

Judging by the description, he knows nothing about sportbikes and is just making stuff up as he goes along.

The kind of buyer who buys a bike because it supposedly does 230+mph is the same kind of buyer who will probably crash and die before he is able to come back after you about the bike's faulty description. Maybe I should start selling some bikes like this

Send a message via Yahoo to SVRider
I sent him a email asking how he knew the top end since the speedo only read up to 185... no answer

Also asked for a list of the "other mods" too many to list... again, no answer, guess he didn't want to sell too bad

Four million rpms. The rev limiter comes in at 4.3 million, but has been bypassed.

And she stroked him all the time.
She pricked her finger one day and it
Occurred to her she might have a porcupine
