Are you sure you want to race a C77?
You may want to look at the other HONDA'S you will compete with. ...............lm

Hello Diverdee


Appart from weight, poor supension and lack of power, I think the biggest problem would be finding suitable tyres for the wheel sizes. Even with the CB77 there are gearbox issues with the STD parts so this will also apply to the C77 as they are the same basic design.
I realise this is not realy helpful but its all worth thinking about before you spend money.
