Steve, Although I can't help you pick a bike (I turbocharged my snowmobile instead of my CBR600), I do have a suggestion for you and the group. Does the Motec have an option to add a wastegate controller and an extra input? A long time ago I built a gearshift indicator for a friends CBR600. I would develop this further and have the Motec control boost based on what gear you are in. No more uncontrollable wheelies and max power when you can use it. -Can you point me to a supplier for the Aerodyne???? thanks, Dave.
