    Isn't the Gix rather porky as well?
    correct. that second exhaust comes at a price.

    according to the current issue of FB, dry weights (kg)

    cbr: 172
    bmw: 183
    F4: 192
    zx: 198
    gsxr: 205
    R1: 206

    in acceleration the r1 got pantsed by everything but the f4.

  • F4 as in the MV? I thought I read an article a few months ago saying they were really impressed with it

    So how come you bought a couple ZX-7R's

    Coulda had a much lighter Gix 750 but you didn't

    Hypocrite, lol
    Listen slice Remember...back in the late 90s, early 2000s, suspension was shit, so the heavier bikes yielded more confidence in the corners. That is not the case anylonger. Even Racetech shit back then didn't really fix the stability issue.

    Besides I DID have a 2002 Gix 750....got stolen the first month I moved to CA. Mexicans...

    the us spec yam shuts the butterflys on you as revs increase. up to 60% at redline. the fix is...expensive.

    to be fair the kawi does this too though somewhat less intrusively and is quite a bit easier (and cheaper) to banish
    Are you taking about the exhaust butterflys? I think this is only to warm up the cat faster, no?

    No. The throttle butterfly's. The us spec r1 does NOT give the rider full power under any condition.
