That sucks bro. I smashed my face wave jumping and it hurt like hell, almost lost an eye so I feel your pain. I have a scar for life.

Sorry to hear this also, but.....If you got "launched" into the air it wasnt a buck....I have been "launched" and I have been "bucked"....... two different animals

They say these things build character. I say we have enough character damn it!
What's up with these grates?! Or, is it just a contributing factor?

Sorry to hear of your injury. I don't see anyway possible that it overstuffed the pump at 51 mph though, even with the stock grate.

51 was the last speed i remember being at, I was on the throttle hard. I was under the impression the VXRs didnt do the buck thing.
Still looking at the 2012 FZR tho.
