Excellent.  So Happy to see the Ninja found a good home.  :)

when you sell a bike to an ocmoto member, you are selling it into a community....of these jokers  :32:

new tires mounted!

and since my winch is acting up in the truck...I rode it the rain...on brand new tires  :32:



surprisingly, even on brand new tires, in the rain...wide open throttle in a straight line did not break the tire loose

4) How is the testing applied? db meter 19 1/2 inches from your exhaust pipe tip (same level) held at a 45 degree angle. Engine rpms held steady @ 75%.

the facebook misinformation is a struggle...people keep posting the wrong info LOL

where did you read about the 19-1/2" at a 45 degree angle being specific to bikes?

^^ says regarding sale of new vehicles, it's measured..."which produces a maximum noise exceeding the applicable noise limit at a distance of 50 feet from the centerline of travel"

bobs muffler shows this from CCR1036 - but does this apply to motorcycles?

(b) Microphone Location. The microphone for the sound level meter shall be at the same height as the center of the exhaust outlet. The microphone shall be no closer to the pavement than 8 in. (203mm) when the exhaust outlet is lower than this height. The microphone shall be positioned with its longitudinal axis parallel to the ground, 20 inches plus or minus 1 inch (508mm plus or minus 24mm) from the nearest edge of the exhaust outlet, and 45 degrees plus or minus 10 degrees from the axis of the outlet. For exhaust outlets located under the vehicle body, the microphone shall be located at the specified angle and at least 8 in., (203mm) from the nearest part of the vehicle. For exhaust outlets that make an angle of 45 degree or less with the longitudinal axis of the vehicle, the microphone shall be outboard of the exhaust axis. For exhaust outlet angles of more than 45 degrees, the microphone shall be on the side of the exhaust axis to the rear of the vehicle.

haha, I read the's my low-level 15 minute google sesh:

$63.30 shipped - IRC Road Winner RX-01 - 3.5 stars on revzilla with many reviews stating that they don't stay warm very long, poor grip, but good tread life
$67.82 shipped - Shinko SR741 - 4.4 stars on amazon - many comments of "good overall tire for the price", good traction, while 1 review said poor tread life, most others said they were on par or better than sticky tires
$68.88 shipped - Kenda K671 cruiser tire - also good longevity, relatively good grip
$72.99 shipped - Michelin pilot 61502 - can't find any reviews
$76.88 shipped - Avon Streetrunner AM83 - minimal reviews, but rated well

-$52.58 - shinko SR740 - rated well, mates with SR741 rear

I also ran Shinkos (granted different ones) on the Vstrom 650...excellent handling in turns and pretty good tread life. The Ninja 500R is on-par power wise, so I am confident it will be a good tire choice. The Busa, however, in its rightful duty as a marvel of machinery, is getting another Michelin Pilot Road 3 mounted for $190 + mounting  :o

much thanks! also a pleasure talking to you, very smooth transaction.

starting off with a replacement left turn signal - $22 shipped on ebay

bike will likely get an oil change and hand cleaning this weekend

ordering new tires soon and new a new rear tire for the Busa

much thanks!

it's been so inconsistent and the memes surrounding "you can change your gender but not your muffler" are unfounded. looks like loud cars are getting popped and loud bikes will still get ticketed, just not the $1,000 instafine

80db on a motorcycle seems a little low though...

dammit I just bought a I need a Kendon?

was thinking about selling the truck and going to a Ford Fusion Energi

any loopholes?  :32:

looks like I'll be happily switching commuter duty to the Ninja with a factory exhaust rather than the car alarm sounding Busa with the Yosh

honestly I think there are quicker responses in facebook groups

i think sc has a  9-5 now and only does bike stuff occasionally for friends
