    woah, where'd you get that sweet radiator shroud?
    That suit issue seems to be pretty common, need a backup suit for days like that.

    looks great BTW

    That shroud is part of the BikesPlast bodywork kit. I have to say it’s some pretty quality stuff. Not much prep work needed for paint.

    Yeah, a backup suit is probably in my future for next season. I’m gonna do a track day Friday with my old 2 piece suit because a buddy is bringing in Dave Moss to work with us for the day. I really want to race but don’t want to add unnecessary risk without the air suit...

    Thanks! The paint turned out pretty damn good for a backyard spray job. Only a couple of bugs in it...LOL

    Dude, Dave Moss with his paws all over your scooter. Sweeeeeetttt. Please share the geometry changes he makes, if he makes any, but youre on Dunlops aren't you? shit!

    I'm gonna have to look if that piece is available by itself from bikeplast

    yep a day with Moss for setup and some coaching. Yes, on Dunlop’s and I’ll report back with any setup info.

    Thanks! Nope not paint, it’s the factory Aprilia decals. I ordered them through AF1.

    You know what. If you never do 300kms/hr on the road, or you do only 5 times in your life elsewhere...The best way to get more usable power is by changing your sprockets and strong 520 chain conversion ( like chain D.I.D. 520 ERV3 ) at the same time. You can get about 13% more acceleration for a loss of 40kms/hr top speed with 15T front and 44T rear sprockets. You will notice the acceleration and power delivery difference with this for sure. You can do this on any bike for more street usable power. (and i am also quite sure T=track mode, S=sports mode and R=road/rain mode).

    https://www.gearingcommander.com/ here is a gearing helper. For top speeds etc.
