I'm too lazy (or dont care) to run the numbers but I'm pretty sure you cant bore a 750 out to 836. :blink:

Then why make a stupid response?
I have no way of checking it but I was told it was bored out to 836 and I know there is a honda bore out kit that does 836... So, I didn't question the numbers either. Lets just call it a 750 and be done with it!

So many things wrong in that list. But this:



is just asking for a Darwin Award.
Why in the world would you....... never mind:laughing::no:...

When I was a punk kid I used to ride a rice rocket.I would disconnect the brake light to the rear break...So cops would not see and notice I was speeding.:blink:

Why the hell would you disable any of the brakes? I could understand it on a show bike where they keep the minimalist look by not installing any of th front brake hardware, but to have it and just disable it makes no sense.

Actually, a front brake on a raked out bike could be a problem if one were to panic and hit it for a quick stop; especially if there's a few pebbles around. But it'd be better than nothing if the rear brake went out.
