Recently reading about oil advancements and how they pertain to the classic Mini Cooper. Back on the day, if you had even a mild Cooper, and oil cooler was a must. Even today most just chuck one on without collecting the relevant data to suggest it one way or the other. We’ve come a LONG way and a modern oils sometimes are all that is needed.

This makes me think of those brake ducts. I wonder if they are really needed (on anything other then a purpose built race bike that is actually being used on track) or if a new, non-fad pad is more then up to the challenges.

What is the logic to choose for a dry clutch on our bikes... Those things suck from a maintenance and driveability view.

My guess is the “cool” factor. Maybe the sound...feels like you are riding a Ducati? I think a lot of the time, and this applies to all hobby’s we get into, that way too much of it is driven by “barstool racing”. Things that sounds cool, that you can brag about to your mates, but might very well make your object worse in the long run.

What $10k will get you..

☆ Product description ☆
Car name: Monkey
Body number: GC017-****
Color: black
Key: 1
It is an indoor storage vehicle that has not run in the rain.
Driving display 2841km * Driving unknown due to external meter replacement
There is no liability insurance and the car will be scrapped and handed over.
The exterior is a beautiful car body without rust, although there are scratches etc. that were attached during use.
It costs a lot of money including the production cost.
It is definitely a full custom car. Good to run! Good to decorate!
I am confident that the vehicle was made from scratch.
Please see the additional image for details.
Please note that there are some parts that cannot be written because they are mostly foreign parts other than the tank and main harness.

Beautiful bike. (y) .Nice G Craft frame and Galespeed 12 inch wheels. The Tachometer is driven from the camshaft. I have one but have not installed it on my ZB yet.

Nice mix of old and new tuning parts.
I would drop the rear just a smidge, i do not like that swingarm angle.

edit: Hmm, I judged the front forks as kawasaki ksr, look the same...
