Ok I saw this on ebay 2 days ago, I thought nothing of it ... Now On Robert's(Sportbikeworld's) New web page , I see the dumb ass who is trying to sell his EX500 for 5g's , It's not a '99 its an '89!!!!!!!

But there is an upside to this story!!! This EX500 (499cc's to be exact) pulls a 9.4 in the 1/4 mile!!! A BUSA BEATER AT THE DRAG FOR ONLY 5'GS!!!! :D :D :D :D ;)

these are the performance mods he has done...
Ignition advancer
Shift Kit
Stage II Jet kit
Enlarged Air box to accomidate Ram Air intakes
Fire-Wire plug wires and ignition unit
Micron exhaust headers
Cobra F1R exhaust (dual)
Front sprocket is a 14 tooth (16 factory standard. Before crash it was a 16)
RK AFAM racing chain and sprocketts
K&N Filtercharger kit
Different pistons and rods, stock crankshaft


Bull shit!!!!!!!!!!! This is a scam.
This is the type of guy that would not let you drive his bike If you were interested...

157mph top speed MY DI*K

79HP @ 9800rpm

I can't even go on , This is pathetic!

Adam,

You forgot to add, those performance figures are "before wreck." Also, the 79 bhp is quoted as at the rear wheel, not at the crankshaft.

I wonder how he got a 79 bhp bike to run a 9.54 second quarter mile and top out at the far side of 150?

You pegged it. This guy is full of doo doo.

I was born yesterday but I was up late last night.

Pretty nice performance gain. Stock camshafts and all. (Or did I miss the camshaft?)

Sounds like a Honda running 12's with a bunch of stickers on it.

Uhhh...I own an EX, and it's modified. I know for damn sure that it will not even come close to those specs. He must be using metric time and velocity measuerments.

If my EX could do that I never would have bought the R6.

Damn, I wish I had been here to answer the quiz first, because I knew the answer. Then, it would've been self-serve! :D

Does the fact that Wolfman knew the answer and was so excited to answer it KNOWING the reward for a correct answer make anyone else wonder?

I dunno fellas, I think we're being overrun!

It's an RC-revolution

Tried to respond with "P.S. I'll pass on the prize!" after the first post, but the system said something about flood control, But maybe the wife will give me the prize instead!
