Utube video showing the wobble wheeled C5 yupers that's exactly what mines done since day one and there is no fixing it at least not on mine as I've always said a design flaw. >:(

Well, we have a G5 coming to us, and so we won't be able to look at any of those C5 chassis handling issues.

I'm sure we'll have our hands full with the engine mods.

Well my B5 (old iron bullet frame)  is rock stable at all speeds.

However it definitely IS skitty under brakes on loose stuff. Any loose gravel on a corner under brakes and the front lets go very suddenly. Tipped me off once and tried on several other occasions.Maybe its the stock Avon.  My old xj900 never had the same issue.

@ACE.CAFE:

This is great that you are getting a G5 for an ACE upgrade to make it more street 'smart' bike. I am sure whatever you decide to do, it will become a better bike.

Since UCE / EFI are the present and future of RE, your efforts will be well appreciated.  Look forward to see your progress in this project.

Ace, if i might request some things non-engine related that I think are the same for all UCE bikes:
1) A set of footpegs and mounts that lets the footpegs fold up if they scrape in a corner
2) A brake pedal that sits closer in to the bike/frame.  The currrent one sits out around the middle of the footpeg.

I'll take a look at the parts books for C5 and G5 tonight but I think they share these parts.

Thanks,
Scott

There ain't no maybe to the stock Avon having the power to put you on your butt. My Avon put my bike off a cliff! Fortunately some trees caught it before any major damage was done. As soon as I got the bike going again the Avons hit the trash.  They had kinda washed out on me before, but I guess I didnt' heed the warning enough and gotten rid of them sooner. I'm running K-70s now and feel oh, so much more secure.
The stock Avon SMs suck. S&M is more like it!

We call them "Skid Masters"/

Yup. Same head wobble due to crappy setup by my former dealer, stiff skinny Avons and a bunch of other stuff including frame design. This is all easily curable as many of us can attest.  Check some of our threads on C5 stability and you will find a comprehensive summary.

Ace, apologies for diverting from your thread.........since my last post on this subject life on the C5 has been tranquil and this winter I went one step further and put in 19x3.5 front and 18x4.0 rear Dunlop K70s and it is rock stable at high speeds.

It's all part of the process, and there will be need to have everything sorted before it's all said and done.

I"m motivated to do this now, so once we get the G5 we can begin.

out of interest, if you had a UCE in a country with no emissions standards or noise level restrictions, would you do things any different?

In Florida, emissions standards were eliminated about 15 years ago.

No more vehicle inspections.  Hooray.

Noise levels are not generally inforced unless the db level is horrifically offensive.

OH sure Ace... You do up the Iron barrels and then skip RIGHT over us poor AVL middle-children for the fancy new UCEs.  What about us, huh?   ;)

Hey, Bittercreek, have you seen Kevin's announcement about the C5 Special that has the 19" wheel and straight forks? Maybe you could work a deal!

Boggy,
 It's already been done, 33.4 bhp at the rear wheel, 103 mph top speed, more 'grunt' everywhere, it was about three years ago when I modified one as the basis of the Hitchcocks kit. I gave full details on this site of how I did it, but on looking through my old posts recently, I found the thread with all the details seems to have gone. The 'prototype' differed in several ways to the eventual kit and it used mainly modified standard parts, remaining at 500 cc.
 B.W.
