"I normally run Castrol oil in my 08 GSXR 600, but decided to try Maxima to try to save a few dollars. It wasn't horrible, but I did notice that my bike was a little harsh shifting. I recently changed the oil and used Castrol. The bike shifts as smooth as the day I rode it away from the dealer for the first time."
Made in the same factory as many O.E.M. filters. Low internal resistance allows for maximum oil flow. Exceeds O.E.M. standards for filtration and service life. Internal check valve prevents oil drain-down and dry starts. High quality materials allow for use with standard and synthetic oils. Tough steel casing and base plate, with high quality seal.
"Hi all, I usually will use a Fram oil filter on my 08 GSXR 600. But since Motosport doesn't offer Fram filters, I bought this Bikemaster one and regretted it. The seal on the filter started leaking and dripping oil on the header. I tried tightening the filter to stop the leak, but that didn't help. Finally I just changed the oil and filter again before the leak got worse. With oil being so expensive, I just wasted a bunch of money doing an unnecessary oil change."
You dont have to be world champion to get your hands on Michelin racing tire technology. Pilot Power tires use a rubber mix that was originally developed for MotoGP racing, and a tread pattern that covers less than 12% of the tires surface. The result is a maximum lean angle of 50.6 degrees on dry pavement and 41.9 degrees in the wet, achieved with a stock sportbike. Rubber compound reaches operating temperature quickly. Incredible cornering grip. Impressive durability for a high-performance tire. Designed for high-performance sportbikes. Suitable for street or track use. MotoGP-derived rubber mix. Tread pattern covers less than 12% of the tire surface, for phenomenal cornering adhesion. Synthetic rubber mix derived from MotoGP tire technology, formulated to maintain consistent performance even at advanced stages of tire wear. 50.6 maximum lean angle in the dry, as measured at the Michelin test track. The Michelin Pilot Power ultra high-performance tire has a speed rating of W or up to 168 mph.
"This is a decently priced tire that grips the road pretty well and won't wear out in 2 months. I hate paying people to do something I'm capable of doing myself, so I mounted the tire myself and must say this is the easiest tire I've ever done!! It slid onto the rim with ease and the bead sealed tight without having to wrestle with it. I wouldn't try racing with it, but definitely a good road tire."

"I put this muffler on my 08 GSXR 600 in the hopes of getting more sound. Although it is much lighter than the stock muffler, it did not increase the power and is not much louder than the stock muffler. The only way I got any sound out of the Jardine was by drilling out the housing rivets and removing most of the packing. Before going to that extreme, I would recommend just getting a megaphone muffler that is less expensive."

"The title says it all...This shirt looks and fits well but isn't very warm for a long sleeve T. I wore it under my riding jacket in mid 50's weather and thought it would keep me a little warmer. But I got it more for style than usability."
