If any of you need bike work done, take it to Champion Motorsports in Herndon (703.471.6990). I picked my Hayabusa up from there yesterday, and it was a totally positive experience. They're a 2 year old dealership, young as dealers go, but appear to be run pretty well.

On top of that, they've got a guru of engines, a Brit named Nick, whose knowledge surpasses the best techs and wrenches I've ever met (and there are piles of them in CA). They've got their own in-house Dynojet dyno and Nick runs it to diagnose problems and tune bikes. Drop by and take a peek at the dyno run charts for some examples of Nick's work.

Porcine!?!? 'Tis a bit on the portly side!

p.s. It really doesn't need nitrous, or any forced air induction. The damn thing pulls like a freight train in any gear at any speed.

Any speed up to 65 miles per hour, that is. At which point you of course roll off the throttle. Is it boring riding around in first gear?

yes Champion Motorsports indeed is a great shop. I got my new rear tire from them and they matched www.kneedraggers.com price which i am really happy about. Looking forward to doing some more business with them.

Didn't that shop or isn't that shop part of Coleman's. I went in there to look at bikes (2) years ago and thought their prices were high and there salespeople were a##holes. Has it changed?

I usually get everything including tires at Fastlane. Those of you who have gone to both reccomend one over the other. I need new 208's for my RC51 and am curious if you think Champions is cheaper. Also will they do same day tire changes? Rick @ Fastlane usually gets me in and out on tires in about an hour.

Thats where I bought my bike. Out the door 200 under msrp, $1000 less than colmans was going to deal. Probably didn't hurt that I had cash though.

What did that 6RR make? As I remember Mark told me his 6R made 106. Ive always wondered what the 6R makes in comparison.

Champions used to be Cycle Sport they were going under and sold to the guy who owns Champions now. I believe that guy also owns Rhodes cycles on 606 in Herndon. They have really turned that shop around since the change of owners. They got rid of almost all if not all of the techs(thank god). They used to be stingy but they have become way more competitive. Also if you talk to Nick before getting your bike worked on sometimes he won't charge you all the labor time or dyno runs he does. Very positive experiences.


Favorite thing on my bike: the miles I put on it

We did it twice. before and after the akro full exhaust was put on.

Before the exhaust it was around 94 - 95 rwhp. After the exhaust it pulled out 101-102 rwhp.
With the power commander and new map on it, it might be pullin around 103 - 104..

*note this is a 03 6RR 600 cc not the 6R which is a 636 cc engine. I believe stock for the 6R is 104-105 rwhp
