    Question to the OP?

    When it goes pop on the dyno who's problem would you try to make that?

    A lot of 'cunts' who are in business never were cunts before they started.

    And the customer is always right.

    Actually, I agree with mr brp.

    Every bike I've hotted up became proportionally unreliable according to the hotness bestowed.

    These days I prefer buying the right tool for the job, instead of fixing one till it breaks.

    A simple contract taking away liability from the shop would be an answer to that as mentioned earlier which is why I'd like to hear more from the OP.

    a simple contract is fine,but the guy whose bike has just blown up isnt going to be too happy and i guess there is also the fact that you have a clean up job.So they figure its not worth the trouble and have said so quite plainly.Whats the problem?

    One of you mods should change the title of this thread too.
    Something like 'RM has a spack' would be good.

    I just wanted some more info because I didn't think the OP was giving the full story.

    Like Crasherfromwayback said, he gets customers to sign off liability.

    Let's start with yours. Get some aviation fuel from that BP at Kumeu and we'll go from there.

    Blow Up is too emotive.

    Expedite mechanical failure in an older vehicle with a questionable service life.

    Just buy a more powerful bike ..... that way the crank etc is designed for the power
    the last models that I can remember that had underengineered cranks were the TX750 Yamaha in around 1975

    To be honest most if not all bikes from the reputable makers these days are correctly engineered.

    with all due respect-bullshit

    every bike owner has the right to have his or her machine performing to its true potential,and only correct and proper tuning can give that result.

    the factories never have and never will invest the time and effort to do that,its up to the person that has the money and emotions invested to do it.

    If the owner is happy as it is,fine.But I can assure you there is not a bike made that can not be improved or at least tailored to its owner if they want to invest the time and money.

    I own three bikes,one small,one not very big,and one a little bigger.as far as im concerned I get a great buzz out of them being the best they can be,and would not trade them for a "bigger,faster"machine for all the tea in China.

    Different strokes and all that,but fair dues to those who want a better bike than they started with.

    whatever size it is.

    Ummm nobody much was talking about hotting anything up? The discussion had evolved to being mainly about getting the bike running to its potential.
    I don't have a bucket list, but my fuckit list is growing fast.

    I bet you're talking old bikes BD.

    Cause modern ones don't break.

    Even though we're talking about tuning what you've got..you can (if you want) get rather large gains on any modern road going motorcycle without the risk of failure.
