This is not really a FAIL. Had I had the right links I would have been able to hide a little more height back to my bike, but oh well. I'll just keep it the height its been for the past year and a half lol. OR i'll see if someone shorter than me wants to trade for these links (and kickstand).
Full of fail
The progression of failure.

Swingarm extension blocks from Spencercycle.com
I received my extensions from Spencercycle.com to give my, already 12yr
old+, R1 a slight makeover. I'm also gonna lower it a couple of inches too
with a lowering link. I was debating on whether or not to get a newer R1
but, this bike looks really good for her age so, y not save the money.
09 White GSXR600, Stretched and Lowered
Walk around of my white suzuki gsxr 600.. Has a Jardine GP1 Slip on (Cheap
i know..), Roaring Toyz Extension,Roaring Toyz Lowering link, Roaring Toyz
Lowered kickstand, Yoshi fender eliminator.. Pretty much about it.. HID's
and full yoshi system to come soon.. Probably gonna get ragged for revving
the motor while it was cold..

Gsxr 600 Problems lol
FIXED it was the Regulator/Rectifier was only $120
new battery was not the Problem. Now its probably the Regulator/Rectifier
every time we try to make a new video something breaks lol

How-to Install a front sprocket on a Kawasaki ZX-14 by CheapCycleParts.com
Want a "faster" bike without
spending a ton of money? Hands down, the easiest and most cost-efficient
way to a quicker accelerating motorcycle is to adjust your final drive
gearing. By adding a smaller front sprocket or a larger rear sprocket to
your bike's final drive ratio, you can essentially "tune" the bike's power
band to be more accessible at lower RPM levels. Sure, you're giving up some
top speed, but how often do you really hit the rev limiter in top gear?
Take, for example, our test mule: the mighty Kawasaki ZX-14R. With a top
speed easily north of 180mph, it's safe to say riders of this beast can't
legally access its upper limits on any public road in the good ol' U.S. of
A. So why not add a little more grunt to the biggest Ninja's already
prodigious bottom end? Why not, indeed.
For this How-To installment, we'll be dropping a one-tooth smaller JT front
sprocket onto the 14's final drive. To get started, we'll remove the lower
fairing to gain access to the sprocket cover and other bits packed around
it. Next up, we'll move to the side the clutch slave cylinder (careful
moving this to avoid any kinks in your cables), the Nina's speed sensor and
the primary sprocket cover.
Once the workspace is opened up, mounting the new sprocket was a simple
affair. First, you'll remove the sprocket nut and lock washer (be sure to
get a have a new replacement washer ready for remounting, as these washers
need to be bent upon mounting). Once the nut and washer up are removed,
loosen the rear axle nut so you can move wheel forward, loosening the chain
enough to move it off of the sprockets. With the chain tension removed,
simply remove the chain fully from the front sprocket and ease the sprocket
off of its shaft.
Installation of the new sprocket is equally simple. Just follow everything
up this point in reverse. Mount up the new sprocket on the drive shaft
(make sure to mount the sprocket numbers-side out), remount your chain to
both front and rear sprockets, then get some tension back on the chain by
backing out the rear wheel chain blocks. Before tightening the rear axle
nut back down, be sure to line up the swingarm wheel marks to ensure proper
rear wheel alignment. Tighten up both front and rear sprockets to spec, and
bend the front locking washer to hold the sprocket in place. Finish things
up by remounting the sprocket cover, speed sensor, clutch slave cylinder
and lower fairing. All done!
Once mounted, we were curious about the Ninja's newly altered power curve.
TO see how much effect the smaller front sprocket had made, we headed down
to the CCPowerSports Louisville location for a quick spin on the Dyno. Much to the delight of our
power-addled brains, we found a jump of 5-15 usable horsepower between
40-100mph. The trade-off? A loss of around 10mph on the top end. A fair
trade, we thinks.
