Cam timing can definitely move power around and I for 1 will take more mid range. Thank you BMW!
From my experience on other bikes --LIGHT WEIGHT WHEELS - will make a huge difference all around.
Acceleration, braking, suspension.
Wheels will do more than an exhaust change.
Lucky for all us HP4 guys, BMW gave us both!
Wattsy Rules- u are killing me man with your seat of the pants review.
It's hard enough waiting for my bike to arrive without your comments!!!
