    That's the story. Rear one is well flat through the centre...makes 'em handle like poo.

    The grape vine is correct. I'm at Wellington Motorcycles on Kent Tce normally (im in bike sales though...not acc sales). But I've not been at work for the last 9 weeks due to having recently had an ankle fusion. Back in another three weeks all going well. Let them know if you can find tyres at a better price...and they'll beat it. Tell 'em I said so.

    That's what I did.

    I used to ride a Suzuki FXR150. I wanted more power so I sold it, saved money for 4 years and bought a ZX10R.


    If you can make it on Kiwibiker you can make it anywhere.

    If anyones interested I have a IHI VF13 Turbocharger which could be adapted to power 250cc for less than a couple of grand. Im actually quite keen to put it on a GN250 myself

    Turbo is tiny. About 1 inch for the inlet. Would spool up very quickly under a 250's rev range.
    I'm currently in the process of getting a VF8 onto a Hayabusa to run about 6psi. Cost me $90 for the turbo, much cheaper than 3k for a garret/turbonettics or 1k for a chinese peice of shit
