Over a year ago!! Im at the stage where i will find any excuse not to get kitted up. I need to get back out there and fall in love with bikes again
Random question....but......what speed is accurate? The dash or the overlay?

Dave wouldnt map it if there was a high risk of anything happening as one bad job and he will lose loads of work. With mapping, theres always a risk but if done properly on a rolling road, AFR sensors etc by someone who knows what they are doing then id go for it. Dave does loads of R&D on new bikes and loads of work for race teams so id trust him with any of my bikes.

The bike i was referring to in this post has just been edited by the seller..... it now is spares or repair as the head gasket may have gone! That would explane why he didn't reply to any messages or texts.

Lord D, did you get any track footage?

I kind of regret selling my ZX6RR K1 track bike a few years ago!!

Cheers Lord D.

The reason i ask, is i have seen a couple of 04/05 ZX10s that have both had engine work done. On paper they look like the ideal track day tools. One claims 200bhp. I dont know if someone of my lack of ability needs such a weapon for track.....or should i stick to something more standard.

I do love the gen 1 though!!!!

For someone who has been a director of many firms since the age of 26........he seems to have made a fair few mistakes...... before reading this i was sold on the idea that Garner was a huge crook......but this has sort of changed my view ( i know he is a crook but who else is involved ). It looks like an arse covering interview.  Hopefully the next part will give some more clarity

If you had a 1000cc jap sportsbike that has had engine work done (cam and valves re worked, ported and polished) and i believe an ECU remap giving more revs. It would be almost entirely for track days

How often should or would you refresh the engine? Ive never had a bike with internal mods so have no idea on timings nor costs.

Bearing in mind i am inters or slow advanced.....

If you had to buy a track bike for UK circuits, what would your choice be?

Would it be a 1000cc or a 600cc?

From reading between the lines on some social media posts today there may be a fair bit of blame for the current owner Mr Garner...

Seems they have gone into administration! Shame as they make a great bike...
Cheers for the reply Komp. It seems its more complicated than i thought. Maybe its easier to create a facebook group instead lol
I need a ZX10R....or maybe an RR..... the only reason id get the RR was the autoblipper.....but if i can get a 16/17 ZX10r and retro fit the autoblipper then thats my plan as i hate the new colour schemes

Watch this space.....
