Row, Row, Row, your box, er, boat!

Right now the 300 is a midrange stonker that needs a tune to pull to 12,500 soft limiter. Small displacement bikes should rev. That is just the way it should be. That's why my 300 has a tune.

It was competent and perfectly useful, but lacked the top end that I really know it should have. It is still kinda dull as the low/mid is so friggin strong the top doesn't hit, it just pulls. I can ride it around town in 6th gear with a +1 CS and just roll it on to beat traffic. Boring. I expected a Ninja 250 like powerband, where you need to row the gears and dance on the shifter, but with more top end. The engine is good but it isn't exciting. I bet the 500 Hondas will be the same. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
