    So are you laughing at CDG? I don't get it. What does this have to do with the lag issue? Why are we going off topic?

    thats taking things in a strange direction, i dont think that is how it was meant.. plenty of odd talks on the interwebz these days. just a general comment.

    the line between this and that type of bike has gotten really blurry. So have most discussions regarding what is to be considered 'performance' in modern sport-bikes. Meaning some are happy to do without 'intended levels of performance' even though the price tag certainly reflects its original purpose. These days at least half of the motorcycle buying public does not have a clear understanding of what limitations are imposed on certain bikes, purely because of their target market.

    Thats perfectly fine as well though, as we all are aware of how spoiled we are to begin with when shopping for a new ride in 2019.

    it would seem to me in this case, the SPORT portion of said Sport Touring (segment) Motorcycle is heavily accentuated, but in a very different way than a similar 'performance component' would be utilized in what most of us would consider a road legal "sport-bike" aka Race Bike with mirrors and turn siggies.. Hell maybe we're all a little crazy and these are just labels we use because we like shiny stickers and bright colored leathers.

    Maybe take one plug wire off if it feels too scary fast.

    That is the H2. By the time they beefed up the bike to hold up to the extra power (and they added weight of the supercharger bits) it ended up being the heavier H2.

    read a similar comment above, yeah.

    I didnt make the distinction to be honest, specially considering the extra weight..

    but then at the time i was looking at all these sportibikes hitting well below the 440lbs mark, whereas the H2 is what 476.0 lb soaking wet?

    hard to compare with yer average literbike.. most off recent years line up right beside the R6 in weight, handling, etc.

    i just meant they're not really focused on outright twisty bits performance machines.. its all balls to the wall, on a straight line.

    there's a japanese rider who was trying his damnest to break the 400kph mark, maybe it was the H2R. he kept saying :
    "i just need to get it upright as fast as possible.. i'm losing too much time while leaned over, gonna run out of track."

    maybe it clouded my judgement.. he got it in the end, got off the lean sooner and utilized the entire length of the track to make it happen..

    i'm cure CDG is right, and its a naked... thats a little scary thought all in its own.

    new thread: how do i get rid of POPPING!?

    answer: do not pass GO! head straight to JAIL!

    edit: i've often read on the Raider's forum popping is a result of 'fuel cut' parameters introduced in modern ecu's.
    unfortunately not the only cause as swapping out to an aftermarket exhaust (no catalytics) will lead to the same, but
    this is due to 'un-burnt fuel' as you mention, it ignites within the pipes due to high internal heat of same.

    its easy to induce with incorrect fueling , but also easy to fix.

    scary fast can be a bit of a loose term. these days its all a little wild out there

    Triples do sound great though.

    Between missing out on the Randy Scott FB lifestyle party and now this news of no Raider forum, Sikorsky's going to be devastated. It's a good thing he's a got a cushy gov job with all those benefits to pay for some counselling to help him through this rough time.

    all kidding aside, yes there is one.. pales in comparison to most sportibke forums in terms of discussion material.

    plenty of OEM Nazis on there.
