Welcome home!
I've had many sport/dragbikes over the years and, like Lew, love mine also.
The B-King will hold it's own on the track in the hands of an average rider!

I came off of two Hayabusas (one at a time, obviously  Very Happy  ) before the B-King so I know exactly how you ended up here. The King is a terrific all around bike, you're going to love it.

Welcome!

Welcome Glen71 did the same as you had two busas and went to a King. Find it more of a play bike than the busa. exc911ence great minds think a like, was writing this message as yours was posting  lol!

Thanks fellas,Got my Black B king,Already flashed it,converted it to race shift and dropped a tooth on the front and fitted a make shift cold intake for now,It has Ixl slip ons and ive removed the spud on one side.fitted a new oem air cleaner.I want to fit a woolich logbox pro and measure and tune as I mod things like the intake/air filter,exhaust etc so I can weigh up the overall gains and losses of each change.It certainly steers nice and light and the riding position appears far more tolerable than a busa on longer trips.Ive just got to settle into it and assess what I do and don't like and decide my direction with it.Im keen to fit My billet clutch hub and take it to the strip and see what I can do with it stock height.

Installing a clutch mod is almost a rule if you want to race at the drag strip...
It gets pretty brutal with the back-torque limiter after a while!
