    Depending on the level of the racer, very small RPM changes in key corners can make a big difference. Also, the angle of the chain affects the way the suspension works. Squat under acceleration among other things that are beyond me...

    Installed new brake lines on the ZX6R today. Galfer GP lines. The old ones had some damage from being crushed in the steering stop from a crash.

    How do the Galfer lines differ from regular ss lines?

    Probably no big difference. The GP set is a Y line instead of two individual lines so slightly less line to flex, which I will not feel...

    15/49 is perfect for that bike for SMP etc

    You don't have a lot of space in the swing arm so unless you want to be changing chains between tracks you will want to stick to 15/49 and a 16/48.

    I don't mean to take this off topic, but I figured this thread would yield the best results. In the next couple of weeks, I'm going to be replacing the tires on my 848. I just noticed that the retainer clip for the rear axle nut is safety wired, and was wondering if anyone here would be able to safety wire it again after I replace my tires. I figured I'd try here before I go ahead and order a kit to do it myself. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the tip. Didn't think about the chain length for different sprocket setups....

    Where are you? I've got safety wire and the spin pliers....
