Thanks.. I had an 848 that was a track/race bike. Like most I had to fight that thing in the corners, would wanna push me out. The 899 is night and day difference, especially with the lighter wheels the bike really turns in excellent. Lower center of gravity and a much smaller center of gravity compared to the 848 which felt very high and big.

I am having gearing issues, nothing major, just trying to find that perfect gearing setup. I went as low as 14-44, made the power band even smaller and went through gears very quickly. So, I went up and down in gearing. I think the ideal, for me, is a 15-45. Tracks with small straight aways a 14-44 is great. But anything with a long straight a 15-45 is needed.

Just put on the new Ohlin's 30mm kit and a TTX GP, so will have to tune that also. But I expect a improvement from stock.. Which stock wasn't that bad!

I had a 848 evo as well. Took the 899 to the track today and dropped 4.7 seconds from last year on the evo.

Cool, ya out of the box the 899 is better then the best 848 setup I have ever ridden. Even better once it is setup as a race bike...

Lookin good! You'll definitely get it below 360 with those last couple mods, you'll be pretty much the same as mine weighs. Once you strip these these things down you can get them quite a bit lighter than an 848.

Thanks Jarel. And thanks for the rear linkage, definitely noticed an improvement going to "flat".
Also, I am interested in what you get in weight savings for the aluminum tank. If it isn't that much I may not do it; cost vs weight savings.
