Not for track racing.. It's an endurance racer for the road...

520 DID X-ring, 17/46 Talon rear... O or X ring has less drag when hot and they last sh*t loads longer...
At some stage i will try ceramic wheel bearings... my guess is they might be worth +2 maybe 3kmh... but as I said, the placebo effect would be considerable...

Re: Ceramic wheel bearings

Factory Pro want $44 to post an offset woodruff key ....that's $130 for an offset woodruff key.... Doesn't sound right ?

The ignition advancer isn't a bolt. It's an offset woodruff key that moves flywheel 4 degrees.[/QUOTE]

A longer stack doesn't make more top end HP, it makes better mid range/torque, so your boost mid range makes sense with the longer stacks.. Shorter stacks are better for top end peak HP.

you have a street bike. It's not a racer. Call a spade a spade please.

Then do it free, instead offsetting flywheel with key offset pick up.
Or make key, they are simple to make.

If you had any idea how this bike was ridden then you, like me would have no problem calling it an endurance racer... Trying to match pace with a dozen sports bikes for 6 hours at a time is absolutely exhausting.. I sleep a minimum 10 hours after each day... if I'm lucky a 1/2 hour power nap at lunch time...2-3 days.. sometimes 4... The engine eats 1/3rd of a liter of oil per day and has done since new... What I do is road racing pure & simple... like the Isle of Mann or Northwest 200...One particular road called the Thunderbolts way there are 20 minute sections just holding it on full throttle top gear and not much of it is straight... It is extremely physically demanding... I've done enough endurance racing on the track in my life and that is way easier than this.
If I were to take this bike to the track all I would do is remove the lights, put number plates on and roll up to the start line.. It is ALWAYS race ready... Why this engine has not simply blown up & exploded is beyond me... nearly 100,000km ridden the same way ... What a beautiful piece of engineering...

I'm very pleased to call a spade a spade.

The 3.5hp gain was in the midrange.... however it picked up gains everywhere... they were by far the cheapest hp additive to date.
