So does that mean Dan Kyle is actually in jail or what? If he is that sucks. He's been a very helpful resource in the Ducati and BMW track/racing community and all things Ohlins related. But I guess there's a price to pay when you try to stick it to the man and get caught

Thanks.
I was looking into the install. Its necessary to drill and tap the frame steering stop for installation, which is fine but I don't feel like doing it right now. I'm going adhere wheel weights to the stop instead.

Great looking fairings from Taylormade.

Do aftermarket cartridge inserts extend the fork length?

Awesome they built that bike in 6 hours and then Debise goes out and wins a race.

That shows the amount of development they have made in such a short time.

It also shows the bike has great potential.

That's pretty cool! I wish he was in Motoamerica this season though. I like his style. I'm even more impressed that our own @ninjaman89 finished 6th behind those guys! Nice job man

Running Dunlops there too. I wonder if Graves sorted out the chatter issue.

They built that bike in 6 hours. You think they had time for testing? lol Either it still chattered and Debise didn't care too much, or Kawasaki sorted the chatter issue with some small changes that we don't know about.

Testing has been going on sense the first bike was built.

As for chatter... Iíll bet there is none to very little. Itís been dialed out with those $2K Ohlins forks.
