...Well, I have a NEW bike... or at least it feels that way. Put the sprockets in (easy to do, you just need to be patient and careful), took the PCIII out... let the cat out of my ex's house and then took the donkey for a 250 mile test ride... it's amazing what a difference two small sprockets make... mindboggling!

The vibrations are all but gone, it revs the midrange like there is no tomorrow and the fuel consumption has gotten better because my style of riding has changed a little... very little need to rev over the mid range.... also, on a 2 mile stretch, I opened it up with a little headwind and still made it up to 132 MPH...

That is more than enough for me... in "real life" I very rarely see more than 100 MPH... but overall riding has improved significantly as I am shifting even less than before... LOVE IT!

Thank you Lennnie... thank you Phoenix..... that was money well spent!
