It kills the engine through kill switch on the handle bar. Some of the other kill boxes ground the coils other more expensive once run directly through ECU.
They have nothing to do with ram (I don't realy understand what you mean by that to be honest, might wanna give more details) or anything. All they do is desable ignition coils oneway or another. My one will also kill fuel pump as most of them run through the kill switch as well.

+1. Only for upshifting.
Just stick some zip tie to the throttle where the cables are winding and you got yourself quick action throttle.

Not sure about slipper clutch but I'd say there should be no problem. Don't realu see the need for it. Didn't know you could get one either. How much are they and where did you see them

I just never came a cross the one for older bikes. I don't really feel the need for it. Good handfull of throttle blip and gradual clutch release does the job for me. I even like getting the back sliding around a bit on heavy braking before a corner.

Sorry andrei I should explain.. Got problem with left leg so im really looking for something to change the gears. the problem is mostly on the down shift and getting the foot back far enough on the peg before entering the corners . so if i got some method of shifting it could stay on the peg. problem over

I would change gear shift patern to GP stile if I were you so it would mean that you would be comfortable downshifting as it would be the opposite to what you have now. Then get a quick shifter and a rough tap on the hear change will get you upshifting. Some time I hit it with the heal of my left foot by an accident but gets the job done and might make it more manageble for you to shift. Let me know if you want me to describe in more details in case I'm talking jibberish

Never seen one to be honest. It wouldn't stand a chance alongside cbrs I'd say. Suspention, engine would be a defined cbr and that's not what you want on a race bike. Also not sure if possible to get race farings for it either.

Talking to someone who did pre 97 a couple of years ago. He was telling me that scrutineering(spelling?) was a pain. 70 bikes in that class at the time. Anyone know what, when, and how long it takes? Saturday, Sunday morning? All classes at the same time?
