my younger brother just picked up his 04 red ri this morning in ohio from park cyckles in ohio 'which was the only one that they recieved'. i took it for a ride and this thing has no bottom end torque. i was thinking that a one down counter shaft sprocket and one tooth up in the rear would really bring this thing to life,what do u guys think? my o1 gixxer would pull the frontend with no efort. dont get me wrong this is a beautiful bike and with the sprocket change it will b an animal!!!! great job with the fi. the throttle response is exellent.
