Just joined up (again)
I joined this forum last year when I first started riding, but for some reason had to reactive my account due to inactivity. Im not really a newbie, but Im new again sort to say....lol....
I sold my '03 R6 about 5 months ago when I moved, and now Im finally back in the market for a used bike. I found a great bike, an Gixxer 750 but I have a question concerning mods that were made to it
The bike's original engine was replaced with a AMA motor from what the seller told me. The seller seems like a genuine guy and I dont think he's hiding anything, but for my own knowledge I just want to clear up some things:
1.) I test road the bike on street and freeway. The bike is super fast, but its hard to maintain a smooth, constant throttle speed mostly in lower gears and cruising speeds. It creates a slight jerking motion at times. I was told that the bike NEEDS a power commander to smooth out the accelartion due to the modigied AMA motor. Would this work if so?
2.) The bike has a new motor but the speedometer still reads the same as the old motor. That seems logical but is there a way to check? is this common for bikes with replaced engines?
Like I said, Ive been riding for over a year now and this is my 2nd bike so I just need advice concerning the new engine and what not. Thanks and glad to be back on two wheels soon!
