Looks good, but can you fold the license plate up and run easily, or does that just happen on TV.

Nice job Mark. I probably would have done the same, except I'd have kept the mirrors. Safety > cosmetics IMO

It seems like every time I go for a ride someone asks what kind of mileage I get. Normally about 45-50 for me, but I've gotten over 60 on long trips.

Nice, looks good. But **** having no mirrors... I want to see the big *** SUV coming up that doesn't see me so I can GTFO of their way.

Mirrors are also good for checking to see if any cops are trying to keep up.

I actually have mirrors on the bar ends. The factory mirrors simply give you a great view of your elbows and not much else. The bar end mirrors actually don't look too gay and come off easy for track days.

My first tank, about 27.75 MPG, my second tank was near 32 MPG. I am pretty hard on the throttle. The 929 puts, 138 to the wheel? That's badass. The SV only cracked 111.5 with the stock exhaust.

Good call. I usually put those gay stick on wide view mirror things on stock mirrors. I like being able to watch the morons come up behind me at red lights. Watching them in the mirror (with the bike in gear and clutched) has saved me from getting rear ended more many times. Once by a dump truck.

yeah i've gotten used to when looking in the mirror to tuck an eblow, it's normal now i don't even think about it.

yup 138whp, only mods, hindle titanium full exhaust and airbox flapper removed, no power commander. For some reason it runs strong compared to others on my buddy's dyno. i even beat out a 954 with full exhaust, velocity stacks and power commander.

My 2005 ZX10R, 161 RWHP, got 50 mpg. But I kept it on the floor and usually got 25mpg. My 2001 gsxr 1000r, 154RWHP, got 37 mpg. But I usually got 25-27 on it too.

I sold them and have a blinged out ZX9R I've been working on. I just like painting the yokes of the rims and installing my ram air ducts.

This is a picture of my gsxr 1000r I had. And the other picture is of my friends GSXR 750 he had before he wrecked it.

Well his picture won't come up. It had a hot model in a bikini on it. **** up.
