You would realize it if you did. I hit it on my bike when I first got it. Loss of power and a stuttering bop-bop-bop of the engine. Somewhat like ABS in a car. I have to cross two lanes and get up to speed quick when I get on the highway to leave work and was not yet used to the NC
Thought I would throw this here - not worth its own thread. I just bought a Shoei Neotec II Splicer off Amazon for $440 (45% off - this is the $799 MSRP version). Got the last white one but there are two orange and a blue left - see sizes in image.
Timing is everything on these deals but I got my bike from them last August. Had to Finance through Honda to save an extra $400 but my final out the door price (tax, title, registration, etc.) was around $3850 (on a $3100 list price)
