    Nice...I love those bikes, and yours is very badass looking. Even though they're completely different, that's the other bike I was considering before getting my VFR.

    I know it's not a dampener... but are you sure it's Matrix and not Matris.

    Nice job on the mods... and the choice of damper.

    From what I've heard about them they are top notch.

    I really like the radial caliper mounts.

    well i bought it new in 03 and have been gradully doing stuff. I have a bad problem of not wanting to have the same thing as someone else..so i tinker... But the suspension and brakes needed work.

    The suspension is too soft(like jsut about all bike sold) and the forks are not that adjustable...there is one knob on one of the fork tubes and that is it.. I still need to upgrade the spring and valves...but that will probably happen next winter...

    The brakes are a bad desgin..the line runs to the right caliper then jumps over to the left and i have since strechted teh lines enough so that the lever would hit the bar. I would bleed them and they would be "ok" then would suck after a couple minutes...i replaced the M/C first and it still sucked.

    $5k with a down payment of $1k and maybe I'll think about it...even then i dunno..i got her set up just how i like her now..

    Mods are a waste of money... Mines still stock... and i'll smoke ya around the track!!!!


    j/k. be nice.

    The SS brake lines and dog bones actually made a huge difference on my faster orange tank.

    That thing looks good in stealth mode.

    well my offer stands till i find another bike. i would give you six for it if i could, its worth it. you've done all the mods i would have and much more.

    i found a black one in manchester for 5 but it was completly stock and a little ruff. i was hoping to fine one that had atleast after market slip on's.
