I’ll be at njmp working for Hobgood Racing in STK1000.
I’ll have my bike too if you want to check it out.

The new bike is a rocket. While sitting on the bike seems much the same as previous gens the handling is better. Shit the bike just rolls easier when pushing it around.
I’m still playing with gearing as something is different in the trans.
The stock clutch at launch is way smoother. Although the engine braking could use an adjustment for my style as it puts a shudder though the frame and up into the front forks.
I’m still struggling with rear tire grip so I’m going to try a different shock setup next time out.
I’m overall happy with the power delivery and the traction control has saved me twice. It does not have wheelie control.
Keep the updates coming!

The only thing I can tell you for sure is that he has an auxiliary radiator ;)
Plus brembo master cylinder and aftermarket rotors. Also looks like a few carbon fiber case covers.
I’m sure they removed the sub frame and relocated the battery, ECU and wiring.
and we know… The motor has a few personal touches from Graves. 👍🏁

I don’t think their is that much you can change on the engine though, isn’t there? Skim the head, change the head gasket, polish the combustion chamber, and degree the cams. I doubt it’s pumping out more than 135.
