    +1

    0-60 Times

    The 0-60 Bible lists the M109 as 3.5 seconds, and the C90T as...

    Final follow up. I found a good use for the Shinko, one that won't try to kill me. The new owners have reported no issues with handling at speed.

    New rotors have been on the bike a while, no complaints. They made some strange noises at first while the pads were seating, but that cleared up after ~50 miles. Much quieter then the old stock...

    If the rest of the bike is working fine, I'd try putting a new 10A fuse in the #4 position, and seeing what happens.

    Damn, I've no idea. I'd try replacing fuses anyways, you can't always tell by looking. Sounds like a short in the horn circuit, might want to explore that with the millimeter.

    I don't recall seeing a 2" forward option from Grasshopper, but I'm 5' 10", and the standard is fine for me. It positions me closer to the bars, I wouldn't want to be too much closer.

    Might be different on the M, but with the C the bracket just bolts on through the two bolts that hold the back seat on. The stock bolts were long enough, I didn't have to replace the bolts.
