Interesting report. I'd like to see more like this, especially for bikes I'm considering the purchase of.

Can you tell us how much the dealership services cost?

Thanks for the honest rider's log. A few editorial comments...

You state that after reducing the oil level the bike seemed even quicker, but say that the 3rd gear 60mph-80mph roll-on time is 2.5 seconds, which is a half second slower than the 2 seconds stated earlier.

You also state that the torque before and after race kit is 72 FT-LBs and at the same engine speed (rpm), but the factory dyno chart to which you refer shows stock torque of about 77 FT-LBs at 6,200 rpm while the race kit torque of 82 FT-LBs hits at 5,400 rpm.

The race kit certainly made a huge difference yielding an additional 10 rwhp through a significant portion of the upper mid portion of the rev range.

I want an XB12R!!!
I guess you missed the subject title?

Real nice. I take the time to clarify/correct a few errors in your report and am met with derision.
