Another heatwave predicted here today. And I'm about to get the Kawasaki GPZ900R out for our club ride.
It's water cooled with a manual fan and a new ally radiator so should be ok.
Took the Vic out last night after sundown, rode all the winding backroads working the gears hoping for some miracle....
Nice ride but when I gunned it and got up on the cams I felt it rev out real quick hmmmmm.
Found a straight answer hit it in 4the and yeah sure enough the Barnett Scorpion is slipping under big torque.
Gonna have to go to heavier springs,
Anyway it can stay in the shade at home today and I'll ride the old warhorse Kwaka.
Rang Kevinx, who confirmed my down-shifting worries are most probably the shifter ratchet and that yeah I'm gonna need to go stronger on the clutch springs to tame the beast.
Ok the roads calling, where's my sunblock?
