I'm at my happiest, feeling my sporty pull hard out of corners, she seems to throw me out of the corner. I can't go too hard down hill into a tight corner , unless the road is clear & I can keep it open & lean over. I got stock single disc 03 brakes. not complaining, just explaining.

Glad you enjoy your monster torque
IMO 2003 have strong brakes with hers 4 pistons calipers...

on wet and downhill without abs have to be careful though... uphill is a slightly different story... but could happens derapages and power slides

I 'm not saying the roads here were I live are the best , but we have a great riding road we do once in a while from coast to mountains and inland. nearly all fine hot mix, so good dry weather traction. but some roads out west are a bit rough & they just dump cold mix bitumen over tar, nightmare for the belt!
well I have an Ozzy mineral base oil in my motor now. I'm going to try do a good long ride & use a heat gun get a reading from barrels. then drop oil change filter & fill with AMSOIL & do the same see if temp is lower.
