    Best Moto GP video I've ever seen

    Clearly don't watch many motogp videos.
  2. Helmet laws, giving those without a brain a reason to protect it.

    Parts of the deck had been rounded off leading into the bowl which was causing a few different possible issues, one of which was hot spots.

    Shop recommendation for fork rebuild?

    They are fairly new, a couple of CRs from Mid-O started it up this past winter. They are working hard at establishing themselves and have been great to work with on a number of projects so far. Jake is a legit tuner, which is nice to have in the Columbus area.

    Hoblick is also a good choice, he rebuilt the forks on my old 750ss and they came out great.

    28 is fine but Ryan is so busy it's been hard to get stuff to him. I'm not going to get into which shop is better or why but I can almost guarantee you'll have your forks back sooner from The Dyno Shop.

    Ducs are attention whores

    It's physically impossible to hold a Starbucks triple dirty double latte if you're riding a Kawasaki. The Starbucks green and the Kawi green clash - but if you're on a Ducati, it's like Christmas every time you hold that burned brown liquid in your hand (which could be said any time you touch the case of a Ducati engine as well, burned brown liquid everywhere).

    Yeah you'd have to be a silly goose to go ham first session on fresh tires.

    Crash Investigation

    Rear wheel locked from downshifting it seems, as said above. Was good meeting you, bummer about the trip to the farm at the end of the day. Your bike looked fine for the most part so I was hoping you got through unscathed as well but it sounds like that wasn't the case. I hope the surgery gets things sorted out and it heals up fast!

    Mine were fine after like 2 laps of scrub. Every session after that I was digging my knee in after turn 7 on the first lap (not running warmers). They heat up FAST.

    Cool, I'll probably grab some SC3's for my next set of tires then.

    If I can get comparable grip to the Q4s out of an SC3 rear I'd be happy. I don't plan to race big bikes so pushing the very limits of grip isn't really something I'd like to toy with - I have enough fun doing that and trying not to eat shit on the little bikes. 😊

    Yeah, talking to Jake yesterday had me considering the 3s. I think Mark was after him to give them a shot and he seems to like them pretty well.

    The 3 is supposed to be just as sticky as the 2 but with better wear. I imagine the 3 requires a bit higher track/air temps though since it's a slightly harder compound.

    I was paranoid about my engine blowing up the whole time I was there, as well as water getting sucked into the intake (which actually became a problem). No more engine troubles though after replacing the old head with a stock one. Sadly the ported head was causing detonation, even on the coldest plug and 104 gas with -8 degree spark - so pretty much it was not fixable without a new head.

    It was fine on the dragon but I wouldn't want to ride it on any roads that aren't really tight twisties, would get bored fast.

    Random Track Talk

    Yeah longevity is my biggest concern with the Q4s. I know I'd get more life out of an SC2 or 3 rear for about the same cost per tire.

    Random Track Talk

    I did learn that the CBR is gentle enough on rears that I should be able to get 3 or so days out of a Q4 rear, at least at Mid-O. More abrasive tracks, I don't know. Want to try SC slicks next to compare, though I doubt I'll feel much difference where I'm at, which says a lot for the Q4s.

    Yeah it's a monster. He blew my doors off at about every section of the track that he wanted. 90ftlbs of torque means you go fast whenever you want to go fast.
