    Unhappy I am trying to pick up FZR from local dealer

    I had asked a dealer if he would be interested in my 05 EFI GPR.

    Basically I got a flat out :"NO..

    Performance scares people"


    a machine that turns when you want it to no matter how hard?


    This thing is loaded to the hilt and Finally runs like a raped ape.
    Without submitting my laundry list of parts and mods. Basically it is a stage III plus as I call it...

    However like most of us I am not independently wealthy...

    The answer was surprising considering it is more of what the GPR is supposed to be verses how you get it out of the crate.


    No Cat con to ever worry about,

    Premix no oil pump failure to live through..

    set up and ready to go....


    The sad part is is Race CC competitively and the sport has evolved.. 4 stroke machines are the beast of burden to have. Even if i did get triples (pipes) I still would be down on horsepower compared to my competition.

    Yes I have beaten RXP's in the past however that was the 215 version and not the RXP-X that is dominant at the moment and hooks up awesomely-well right out of the hole too. It is hard to compete when the playing field becomes this slanted. I witnessed on more than one occasion this passed race weekend 2 gprs one a LTD and the other a SS get beaten in the hole shot by a stock RXPX. Sure it may have been close but that X did win every class he entered that weekend too. Even with a different rider in beginner that boat did well.

    So to make a long story short? Can any give me their 2 cents?

    want to buy a great ski?? to help a brother totally independent guy out? PM me please....

    I thought I heard that they separated SC/turbo skis from N/A skis in all classes but beginner. I could be wrong. I havent raced since 07

    classes

    there are naturally asperairted or N/A classes but that is all armature classified ( novices and experts)

    for instance novice LTD could have turbo or SC 4 strokes in it . They just have to run in stock form. So if I compete nationally I could run into an RXPX,260 ultra, of fzr or sho.
