In July, we had a raffle for CycleCat rearsets...

I was thinking it was about time to have another one...but wanted to find out what items people would be interested in.
Please check the items above (you can check more than one)
if you've got another idea, you can do a write-in vote.
(and yes, I know everybodys first choice is an S4R...but we aint got one :p)

Jeff, is there any way you can try to choose parts that are ubiquitous to all monster models? (e.g. a dry clutch cover won't work on a wet clutch bike)

How about a set of those swanky BST carbon wheels!

Ooooh! That's the ticket!

Gotta be able to get them in any axle configuration to make the raffle universal (as Daffy notes).

When you take your slippers out of gear before you go to bed you engage your slipper clutch. Works great.

No really, a slipper clutch is a clutch that slips when you are backing off at high speed or banging quick downshifts going into a curve, keeps the rear tire from locking and hopping and other unruly behavior.

... when you specify brake parts, you're not talking brake pads are you? Those are $36... I'd be interested in wave rotors or perimeter brakes if those are up for grabs... otherwise, I'd choose some cycle cat clip-ons (the ones that are raised and adjustable)

It's gotta be a CF belly pan.

Geez, the silly steering damper is ahead right now. ;)

I voted for slipper clutch, but not sure how I would really like it. I like engine braking on the street, but on my track day I think I would have really liked the slipper.

I voted slipper also, but its mainly because its one of the only things they already have for the S4R.

i also like the idea of a slipper clutch, but it's not quite fair to have since it doesn't really apply to the wetclutched bikes. note that with a slipper, you do still get engine braking. it starts slipping at a threshold where your wheel would be about ready to "give"...

i really think the only "universally" applicable item is a steering damper. all the monsters have the same fork diameter (except for you guys who ported over sbk forks), and frame tube diameter for mounting.

brake disks (front) is also a good idea, but if somebody with a single stock front brake gets (what i'd guess would be) a pair, they're suddenly signed up for a 2nd caliper, lines, and possibly a new M/C too. yeah, there's a big savings by having the disks for free, but i think the best type of raffle is the one that you get something you want, and not have to pay any extra $$ to use it.

I do think a nice mechanical item would be good. However, something like a CF belly pan is really some nice decorative fluff that would be good to win. Especially if you are a carbon nut. ;D
