Brad!! What a great question! I wonder what the weight difference is between the two options??? - Likely 3/4lb lighter for the DA.

That being said, those Mintors are incredible and the tuned canisters are really effective. They also have a sound that is uncomparible and the machining job is second to none.

I've had nothing but great results from my Mintor220 and it's a powerhouse!

As for header drops, TopDawg is doing a great job stocking various drops of headers now, particularily for the 110 and 55. I was reading that there are 3 different drops available now, so that wouldn't be an issue.

Service - tough to beat DA, however Claudio at Mintor and Blaine Austin at TopDawg are really pulling out the stops on service also from what I hear.

Power - Like Jack said, I'm reading the Mintor110 likes the 28x12 or 29x10 Mej which I believe is the same as the DA120. I bet this would be a very close match and I'd also throw the 3W110 into that competition also!

Soooo many options!!!!!

What about considering the new ZDZ90??? You'd really save weight and if you're in no rush, we'll soon start hearing feedback on them - if they perform like they say, they won't be too far off a 110/120cc twin class!!
