So I am prepping the 03 for Gymkhana competition next year and I have done the airfilter mod already until I buy the TST covers.

I also installed extra protection in case during the competition I fall and damage the bike.

Looks like a fun project! What's the reason for restricting the tail pipe so much? It sounds counterintuitive to have a full exhaust and derestrict the airbox only to put a plug in the rear?

Noise.A1 and A2 bikes always get pulled over for this. I have a full licence. Its just too loud and also fuel consumption. Less backpressure. Need the worxecu so I can remove the silencer.

Looks like a happy bike to me. Yamaha reccommends 87AKI/ 91RON. Anything more then that is overkill, and a waste of money IMO. Speaking of money, i see youve invested a small fortune into your bike, which is fine. However, since it is a beginner bike, i advise you to do basic maintenance and ride the absolute [email protected] out of it IMHO. Heres an interesting fuel thread i started a while back.

I dont use E10 in any of my vehicles due algae buildup.

I run 93 oct it cost a few cents per litre so 20ct per gallon pointless to run ethanol based fuel.

Also for the states they do low octane here manual says min 91/95
