  1. Beondwacko and I ran together a few times and my best was 10.7 and Adams was 10.3 on stock 01 Birds with a PC3 and Akro Exhaust. Adam strapped his front down to get the 10.3. I rode there made 5 passes and rode the 40 miles back home.
  2. Will hopefully get to try both styles at RacerXX in 2 weeks! My only other question... Does Coopers 50 have carbs? 🙂
  3. Thanks, I was more interested in the comparison between the dirt/trail (CRF) style verses the street (Z125) style on the track completing against each other in the Stock 100/125 40+ class. I saw where you were riding the dual sport at Homestead. Just wondering for the adult on a little bike difference, for the fun of it. Probably will not ever actually race but would be fun anyway. Also something to help the potential young rider to have an opportunity to experience the enjoyment of 2-wheels in a safe environment. Would love to get Collin, Brads son, on a bike.
  4. Looking forward to talking with you and Michael at RacerXX. I have been looking at the Z125 and the Grom. Since I already own a Suzuki, Honda and Yamaha, I like the thought of adding a Kawasaki to the stable. I want to talk with you guys about the advantages and differences between a CRF style verses street style (Grom) for fun/track occasional riding.
  5. WaWa for the ethanol free for me
  6. Scorpion is the house brand name for Battery Stuff.com
  7. The turn signal bulb is a dual element bulb. Standard 1157 amber bulb available at any auto parts store or Walmart

    Chain reaction

    sounds like a crock to me, or maybe just blowing off steam!
  9. Received my new AntiGravity Lithium-ion battery with "restart" technology. Came with a notice plus they told me verbally before buying the batter, that the battery arrives with a reduced charge and must be initially charged with an appropriate LIFEPO4 charger. It spent about an hour on my Optimate lithium charger and now shows 13.6 volts. I should have but forgot to read voltage right out of the box. At 360 CCA it spins the XX starter motor crazy fast. Starts instantly. At $179 It better outlast the 18 year old Bird!
  10. According to the manufacture the auto-disconnect is set at 12.4 volts regardless of what draws it down or how fast it is drawn down. Designed specifically to prevent a dead battery from long periods of time with no use. Since lithium batteries have virtually no natural drain-down time after sitting for months when disconnected, the self discharge from the bike is suppose to cause the auto-disconnect to happen and then hold the 12.4 volts indefinitely or for at least a year or so they claim.
  11. Craig, The new Anti-Gravity Restart has a built in circuit that cuts off all output as if battery is disconnected when the voltage drops below 12.4 volts. I spent the extra money on this model for that reason since I don't ride the Bird much these days. It cuts off before it drains down below the level to restart the bike. I am told that the worst thing for a lithium battery to experience is low voltage, below 11 volts. Can be instant death. Unlike an AGM where low voltage deaths can many times be rejuvenated, the Lithium not so much. I believe that is what killed my 5 year old Scorpion. To reset the Anti-Gravity after it has cut-off is simple with a push of a button. Crank it up and ride it a bit to recharge the lithium back up its normal 14+ Volts. Hoping to be the last battery I will ever buy for the Bird.
  12. My Scorpion Lithium has died! Bought in 2013. Discovered that he cost has gone up in the past 5 years according to Battery Stuff, due to tariffs. I paid 139.99 back in 2013 and now they want 169.99. Looking at other options and the new supposed latest and greatest is the "Anti-Gravity Restart". It has a built-in circuit that cuts power to the bike if the battery falls below 12.4 volts. If you forget and leave the key on or have accessories draining on it, the battery will automatically shut down all power output until you press a reset button to turn it back on while it still has plenty of power to start your bike. If your bike has its battery buried somewhere Anti-Gravity offers a key fob button to reset the battery. Cool option but not sure how practical? Cost is 199 for the Anti-gravity. I have found most lithium batteries have a 3 year replacement warranty. I few have 5 year. Edited: Battery Stuff offers the Anti-Gravity for $179.99 and free shipping and no tax. Leaning in that direction. Haven't found any Lithium models under $144.99 for the YTX14S size. For the 35.00 cost difference I will try the "Restart" feature since the Bird does not get out regularly. 360 CCA
  13. So by implication, Axo Striker boots provide good riding protection?
  14. Theses just came up on RevZilla that look decent for daily wear with CE protection. Plus I like Alpinestar. https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/alpinestars-sektor-shoes?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Win-Back Disengaged
