I completed the Maniac Mod tonight & released the hounds!!!! Throttle response is incredible in 1st & 2nd ... if you do this mod keep an eye on your tach..... if you wind her up you will be in the 7000 range before you know it!!!! I hit it pretty quick!!! I was playing after riding in my driveway & rev her up rolling & left 25' of the back tire on driveway!!! WO HOOOOO If you do the mod ... you have to remove the plastic rivet that holds the side cover on.. under the seat to remove the left side cover... if you break the pin like I did removing it .. I bought some @ Advance Auto ... in the accessories area of the store where the door panel supplies are they have nylon screw rivets Part # 47971 .250 dia RIVETITE..They will work & IMO will be easier to remove in the future!!! Thanks to Lamonster & everyone else who keeps this site so interesting!!!
