Hi all,

I heard this is a good place to ask SXV 5.5 questions, as I'm in the market to pick one up for track use. Does anyone know whether the VDB Replica comes all choked up like the standard SXV 5.5? If I get it, will I need to pay to have it derestricted?

Thanks!
-Mitch

There were four VDBs brought into the US in 2007 and four more in 2008 for the Rip It pro supermoto race team.

At the end of the 2008 racing season, we sold six of the bikes overseas, two remain in the US to my knowledge.
I believe one is up in the Bay Area and the other in WA.

Why no cut outs in the frame of this VDB?

Only 08 has adjustable subframe and frame cutouts

true, they also reduced the number of Ti bolts in 08 compared to the original 07s
