Hacksaw, duct tape and crazy glue. Nuff said.

Check the video at 1:36. It's reading about 150Kph when the wheel comes up.

hmmmn, gleaning information from various sites i've learned the new ape apparently has variable throttle bodies and they've wisely built room in the cylinders to up the displacement in the future. initially i didn't think they had done that since the engine was a marvel of compactness. good on 'em.

deep down, the motorcycle industry has a problem we dont talk about at parties...
