Spinning them up is for sure...Did anyone see those shots from day 6 {I think 5 or 6} of them just rippin down that beach for miles tapped out..100+ for long stretches laid down on the tank tryin to squeeze every inch of speed out of them....gotta be hard on a 450 motor, even with a short stroke, to ring its neck that hard for that long. I used to stress on the hiway at 80+ on my 530 for more than a few seconds...not that I didn't trust the bike, just a single wrung out like that for any stretch just give me the creeps after a bit...
