My Aprilia really is the dogs B*ll*cks now:

I own an RS 250 *2000* *Harada* Model
I have just dyno run the little rocket and it kicks out 70bhp, 10bhp up from standard.

I have recently purchased an Arrow race exhaust system 500 and treated the bike to a Renthals Sprocket and Chain (110) to lower the gearing slighty, to increase accleration. It now will hit 135 MPH (approx) in top gear . The bike did not need rejetting either because of the quality airbox and carburation as standard. The bikes brakes were also upgraded to braided hoses(250). This road bike is now as close as you can get to any race bike being run by Aprilia UK so i'm told by one of their guys!

Tell you what, Robert...

If you change my Member Status to something like, say, "Supreme Racer God", I'll let you ride mine one of these days!

HEE HEE!
