Angry CAL spec???!!!! Well that sux!!

Well I had my first bike accident, nothing big, just a seperated shoulder. So I'm getting it fixed now. I figured since I had the money, I'd go ahead and throw full yosh exhaust, k&n filter, and jet kit. (Thank you State Farm) Well guess what, this bike is cal spec!!! Shoulda did more research, instead of jumping into a buy. Dyno'd at like 83 hp at the wheel, and after two days of jetting and rejetting, I can only get four extra ponies out of this thing. If it wasn't for all the emmissions crap, I would def. be doing a little better than this, considering the money I spent. My buddy has the exact same bike with the exact same set up, and he had 10 xtra coming from his! Not to mention that he had 10 more than me from stock anyways. So I either gotta live with this, or find another engine cause it'll cost way too much to convert. The cams are even cali spec. Hoses are running all over the place. Dammit cali sux with all their emmissions crap!

Ok i'm through venting. By the way in the crash I slid over 150 ft and not a scratch on me! So for you homos that don't like to wear saftey gear, maybe you should think twice, cause if not I would look like grated cheese right now.

I'm getting ready to by an `02 RC. I live in MO but is there a possibility that they could have a CA spec RC? How would I tell if it is or not?
