I couldn't hear what your friend was saying because I had my windows up and music playing - I imagined it was somewhere between the lines of do you want to race.
was the guy on the 97 gsxr pretty fat?

Went to Pazzo Racing in Abotsford. Met up with Marcus and he graciously installed the levers even though i told him i wasnt sure if i wanted a short or long clutch lever. He installed short on the brake side and short on the clutch, then switched the clutch to long and i told him i prefer the short so he switched them back! Super great service, and he wasnt like a tool salesman trying to get a sale, he was actually teaching me of the components of the lever and let me do some work too, very good experience and would recommend coming here for your Pazzo levers.

Got the black lever with blue tabs, looks fucking sick with the tiny blue accents that came stock on my bike. Got some swag with the purchase, stickers, racing sock, lanyard, keychain.





He adjusted the position of both sides of the levers so its more ergonomic (VERY HELPFUL), and he warned me that gear might grab earlier than what im used to due to the new levers so many people stall when first coming out the lot.

Started riding and immediately noticed the difference for the better. More comfortable, fatter lever to get more feel, gear shifts seemed easier and more natural, and I really liked that the gear grabbed a lot earlier feels much better.

Edit: Just got rid of the hideous fairing stickers. All at the cost of two bruised thumbs ==

Come tracking I'm pretty sure we're all guilty of plastering photos of ourselves riding on everything we own with a screen.

Damn you guys look damn cool......

so those white plastics are race fairings? are race fairings just fairings that are meant to be scrapped because of crash?

And i do want to track ! eventually. Those 1 piece suits are damn expensive

Ya me and CharlieH has race fairings on. The material is stronger and also crashing in a set of race fairings is cheaper than crashing with the original fairings with the mirrors, headlights etc.

CharlieH has the Dainese one piece Avro, my and ft33zwor has the Dainese One Piece Laguna Seca Pro.

I had 2 pc before and I will not recommend it especially for dainese because there aren't enough stretch panels to help increase mobility. If you were to purchase a set, I would go right into a one pc.
