An indicated 60 is actually a true 54 mph, 70 is a true 64 as measured by GPS.
Just $40 for a simple cosmetic fix. It makes no mechanically changes and the odometer remains 98% accurate. Do yourselves a favor and take a few minutes to check it out.

Here's a link to the Group buy on Stromtrooper:

Thanks for the heads up Madstrom. I don't make it over to stromtrooper very often so I will check this out. I see there are over 10 for the DL650 already. Is there a deadline on when this needs to be ordered?

Austin Burge is working with his Printing company now for the 650's MPH faces. I think we are fast approaching when his order will be placed for them. At some point soon we would have to start a new count to 10 pieces. If you want one you better move quickly. The DL- 650 KMH & DL-1000 count is at 4 each as of this morning. Delivery is about 2 months.

I've got a street legal, psychotic, CRF450X that is begging for Super Motard tires and the opportunity to be let loose on the streets to scare small children. I could be persuaded to part with it.
