Some eBay sellers will be pizzed at him for giving up there $20 per secrets.:lol:
I also liked the warning at the end.

The ZX-12R has very good brakes. It will go from 60 to 0 in about 2.3 seconds or about 100 feet. But let me share some simple math with you. At that rate if you double the speed to 120 mph it will take you twice as long to stop, about 4.6 seconds. BUT IN THE TIME YOU WILL TRAVEL 4 TIMES THE DISTANCE or 428 feet. At 3 times 60mph or 180 mph it will take you 3 times as long or about 7 seconds to stop. BUT YOU WILL TRAVEL MORE THAN 900 FEET.

In other words at 180 mph if someone pulls into the road the length of 3 football fields down the road you are still going to be doing 60 mph when you hit them. You’ll be going even faster if it takes you more than 0.37 seconds to recognize the threat and pull in the brake lever.
