I'd have to say the Werks TLB7 is the best bang for the buck. But you can never go wrong with the P5 or P5X.

the v spec is awsome. if u buy a brand new 1 you prb. be happy the only issue is the rear bearing but if u get the ebmods one they replace the bearing with a ceramic one and u also get a ton more power. idk thats my 2 cents.

The VSpec is ok, but like most other OS engines it simply takes some patience to set up and get it running properly I find. The only problem I've had with it so far was failing to get the idle right, but that shouldn't take long to do if you know engines well. Otherwise, it deals plenty of power, atleast with the Jammin' JP1 pipe I use, and is reliable.

I have the Ninja and love it so far...very smooth powerband. I tried JP-1 and 053 pipes with it...the 053 pipe works quite a bit better (more low end and more top end)

If smooth power is what you are after, I would get the Ninja...I think the Radical has more overall power though...very nice engines!

VSpec with a 2050 pipe is great. I happened to have one that had a sh*tty front bearing that leaked. A pair of Boca ceramics now installed should fix the issue. I'll be honest...the motor has insane power. I was amazed at the powerband...it's non freaking stop!
