That's great man! Looks like it soaked up the jumps pretty good!

I can't wait to get to the engine buying phase. How do you like the RR?
If you remain calm while everything around you is complete chaos... then you probably haven't fully understood the situation!

Looks good! Might want to tighten up the rebound slightly on the rear shox.

Thanks fellas!  The 1000rr motor is a great motor!  It does lack some low end torque, but anything above 4,000 RPM it does pretty good!  It is lower on the power spectrum than say an r-1, or a gixxer, 1000, but put it in a buggy like yours, it would haul the mail dang good!  With 2 people in the car, it weighs 1,600 LBS.

I agree I need some valve work, the shocks are as follows, #90 on comp, and #110 on rebound.  I think the front needs to be @ #70, and #100, and the rear #80, and ?? for rebound?  It will just take time, and some experimentation on oil levels too.  It's almost like voodo magic.

I am still waiting for the shock ferry to come around and waive her magic wand, but that's not gonna happen.  It isn't gonna get done just sitting there 8)  Time to dive right in.....AND TAKE NOTES
