retard eliminator
« on: January 10, 2007, 06:59:25 PM »
Its about that time of year where i can work on my bike without feeling guilty that i'm not riding it.  I was just wondering how you guys feel about retard eliminators.  A friend of mine has one on his bike and he seems to like it.  What are the pros and cons of this?

Rev limiter eliminator? Bad plan for the street or novice rider! The only retard eliminator I have is my 9 dog! Werd!
And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.

I am sorry I have nothing positive to add to this thread cause I dont know much about retarding a bike.

But I will clearify what loc said. What he ment is that he has a 9 pound dog.

I'm definitely in favor of retard eliminators, luckily my wife isn't so she has to keep me.

Retard eliminator, is that like where the seat explodes and ejects the squid when he inserts his key and attempts to crank the bike? Wouldnt an alarm be cheaper?

But I will clearify what loc said. What he ment is that he has a 9 pound dog.

Nice one rr4life  :thumb:
Cherry as in mint or as in cherry red. And if cherry red, wine cherry, wild cherry, black cherry, or mint cherry? Actually do you have some mint tires in minty green, or mint & chip?  ;D

My guess is that you're talking about a timing advance.  Personally, no they aren't worth it.

but who can resist knocking that slow-pitch out of the park.

Retard Eliminators should be avoided. your friend might think his is cool now, but he will be eliminated soon enough.
