    I have owned a Triton WC2-2 since 2017. I have since made many modifications, but the aspect I was most disappointed with was the factory brakes.

    On a non-supercharged Yamaha HO engine I don’t think there is much downside to just keeping the crankcase ventilation stock.

    What exactly do you mean by ‘revving like a 2-stroke’?

    Why are you looking at the GP1800R instead of the smaller and more toss-able Yamaha JetBlaster (formerly the EXR)
