    Hi. I'm fine. How are you?
    I'm going to Motegi this weekend!

    I got my Akrapovic full SS system directly from US with a PCV.
    My usual bike shop did the install
    for me at a discount because I always go there. No sure how much it would be normally.

    If you have space and tools you could do it yourself..
    It makes he bike feel lighter and gives a bit more power. Sounds great!

    hey man how have you been? I have been thinking about doing the full system on my s1k . Where and how much does it cost to install? I am thinking about ordering it off ebay. I might need a power commander too right?

    Hi! I don't normally wheelie on the street, but on track the s1k wheelies on the power in 2nd gear even in slick mode.
    In slick mode it allows wheelies for 5seconds or something before pulling it down. In the other modes no wheelies as far as I know.
    Switching the TC off of course allows any kind of wheelie.

    If you really want to learn then I think clutching it up would be the best way. 2nd gear power wheelies are too fast for the street.

    Going to out at Fuji again on Monday!

    Hey man how are ya? I was wondering can you wheelie? I heard the beemer had wheelie control on it. How do you go around it to do a wheelie. I wanna learn.
