i got this in black along with the break lever for my cbr600rr.
i was iffy on getting standard size or shorties, but i am black i went with shorties on both sides. the adjustability is good, but there isnt much of a differents from the 4,5,6 marks. the big jumps are at 1,2,3. you will have to adjust both to your comfort and to try and match both sides to be about the same. i generally use 3-4 fingers for clutch at all times...never feels right with 2. its quite a bit easier to pull in than my standard lever, but the friction zone is in a different spot so you have to tighten or loosen the clutch cable to your liking. after a few rides its easy to get used to the spot.
my only complaint is the amount of free play it has. if you tighten the clutch cable to the point of no freeplay, it is ridiculously hard to pull the lever in. so you have to deal with the weird bit of free play.
Rides: 2003 Honda CBR600RR

i was most excited about my gloves when i ordered my new gear. i like how these gloves look. i got them in all black with the white logo. they fit nicely, decent on sizing. i dont own many gloves, but my size seems to be large. i got these in large and they fit perfect after a little breaking in.
the quality is good but not the best. after about 10 short rides with them, they are already showing wear. the palm material wears out fast. the seams on the tips of the fingers arent the best. couple of the fingers already have loose thread. thats my only complaint. gotta cut those loose strings so it doesnt end up ruining the gloves.
in the end, they are good gloves. they are probably made that way so people go out and buy another set more often...sadly.

as far as ive seen, there isnt a whole lot of grips out there for sport bikes that are gel or comfortable. my bike had these from the previous owner in red. they were faded so i decided to get the same thing, but in black. they are very grippy, but seem to give off alot of this black eraser shaving looking stuff. its fine since my gloves are black but im not sure if i like how they accumulate anything that touches them. like fabrics or liquids.
probably wouldnt buy them again. ill do a little more research and pay a bit more next time.
they are decent for cheap, gel grips to replace stocks ones. i used the hairspray method to install them.

i wear these pants with the tgpr air textile jacket from alpine stars. it zips onto the jacket and creates a full suit. the pants are kind of a pain to get on and take off. at first they will feel extremely tight around the calfs. i was on the verge of returning them because my calfs were so uncomfortable(and i have small calfs too). i decided to call revzilla and they said they are supposed to be that way..(i guess). i kept them and they have definitely gotten better as they broke in. now they are pretty comfortable. the giant knee protection is something to get used to for sure. after about 3 wears i was used to it. and after that, you will most likely figure out a method to easily get them on and take them off.
great protection, lots of padding. not so great on air flow though..the only air i feel going through is on the little mesh section above the knee.
Yes, I recommend this product.

i wear these with track style pants. it looks fine to me even thought the pants don't quite reach the shoes or go over them. they are quite narrow even for me.(i have narrow feet). these are definitely not for someone with wide feet. the size is pretty close to true size, maybe a little bit small. so if you are inbetween a size or half size, go for the bigger one. i usually wear a 9-9.5 and i got 9.5s. they fit a bit tight but im sure they will be better after a little bit more breaking in.
protection is good, obviously better than wearing shoes or regular high tops. watch revzilla's video, its spot on.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Two Brothers P1X Power Tip Many municipalities and tracks have begun to implement new, tougher regulations that limit the sound output of street bikes, offroad cycles and ATVs. Two Brothers Racing has developed a series of highly effective sound reducing tips which can help you be compliant. Two Bros' P1X PowerTip sound suppressor is a recommended accessory for our exhaust systems with M series endcaps. A straight-through sound diffuser, the TBR PowerTip quiets the pipe about 7-8 dB with no significant reduction in horsepower. May be used with a spark arrestor screen. Easy to install - simply unbolt your existing M series endcap, drop in the P1X and reassemble. P1 Power Tip also available for 3-4 dB of sound suppression.

i bought this for my two brothers exhaust that a previous owner put on my bike. it was insanely loud to me specially with the helmet on. anything above 6k rpm was obnoxious and i could not hear anything.
i purchased this silencer to take the decibels down a bit and it does just that.
however, be careful removing the screws that hold the exhaust cap on. i stripped one of mine because someone overtightened it. took me 2 days to get it out.
Yes, I recommend this product.

i purchased the white/black of this jacket. it is my first motorcycle jacket and i was happy when i received it. i have rode with it probably 10 times now, not terribly long rides though(it hasn't been all that warm yet.)
sadly, i am disappointed with the mesh durability. i take great care of my stuff and yet random parts of the mesh are starting to string out. (if thats the right way to say it..)
other than that, the jacket is great. protection is good, and has plenty of pockets. 3 on the jacket and a couple velcro ones on the liner.
Yes, I recommend this product.
