sorry man, been sick. i haven't done anything yet.

i'm this close to just snipping them and probably will this weekend. i just want to find a time were i know i will be able to ride the bike back-to-back, including the short amount of work time, so i can be as "scientific" as possible.

i am also still waiting on KTM to hopefully have a response. i'm not asking the suits, im asking a mech so hopefully i might get an honest answer other than the usual canned spam i would expect.

i hope it's true and i get some more low end oomph, because i was honestly expecting more. the front tire seems to be pretty planted to the ground. then again it just could be learning the new bike and engine. im used to true, big bore thumpers that always have that low end tourque. this bike sputters if i try and drop below 4,000 rpm.

i will keep you posted.

laters,

laramie
