Re: What is the first mod recommended for a cbr 954

i was lucky, it came used with one already on it.
have you ever heard of a guy named Nick Ienatsch, er somethin sorta spelled like that?
Anyway, the dealer showed me a pic of him in a racing mag, the bike was his, and it had about 5100 miles on it-runs great so far.
thanks for writing

Sure - very good motojournalist and an instructor at the Freddie Spencer School.

He wrote this article, which is great reading for any street rider. The Pace
