    Default 380mm rear tire! Hell no, sir!!!

    So I was up at the Naps on rt 357 by the yokohama bayside marina today and they had another bike on display from one our local shops down here in Yokosuka/Zushi.... but this one was totally off the deep end!!!!

    GSXR 1000 yellow
    380mm rear
    single sided swing arm.....

    I wish I had my camera but let me see if I can find a picture of it off his site....

    Discuss .......

    There's a TLZone member who does major custom work - he put a 300mm SSSA on his bright orange TLR I've seen it in bike mags here. His Vegas Busa - with real gold plating - was incredible. Bloody revolting IMO but incredible.

    I have seen it. The swingarm is so long that he has 2 chains on the thing. The two chains are seperate, and connect with another set of sprockets, and shaft in between. It is overkill, and the guy owns the Tamura34 shop. Each their own, but this guy rapes gaijin on shop work. I wish people would wise up. Working on bikes is EXTREMEly easy, and doing your own work would save so much money in many processes.
