Some pics of the Ace UCE head mods, the Ace valve gear, and also the modified stock rockers with ratio added.There will be new pushrods required because the rocker mods included a cup on the pushrod interface, and the pushrods will need to have ball-ends on both ends now. Also pushrod length should be checked when the engine is built, and order new pushrods to correct length. Pushrod change comes with the territory when modding rockers. Not expensive. I will instruct the owner how to measure.Intake fits with stock injector housing.Exhaust fits with stock exhaust, or aftermarket exhaust.This is the most bang for the least buck that we could pull off.
Great work Ace! Looks really good!
I m pretty sure this one don't do the ton, but who's asking me. Here it is in all its glory...and a hand 'ported' exhaust port with the motor still mounted on the bike. yes, that's how these schmucks did it...with a hand held grinder with the engine still on the bike. I mean this one: ---> http://www.ebay.com/itm/Royal-Enfield-C5-Bullet-Royal-Enfield-Custom-Cafe-Racer-/271588012795?forcerrptr=true&hash=item3f3be832fb&item=271588012795&pt=US_motorcyclesAlso, I think the owner is being disingenuous. I remember watching this on the show and they never claimed it did the ton. They even tried "race gas" and pumped up the tires for minimal rolling resistance....
"This 2010 Royal Enfield C5 Bullet was featured in several episodes of Discovery Velocity's "Cafe Racer" TV series and has been designed and rebuilt by several of the country's top custom cafe builders. The subject of the series' "Royal Flush" features, the C5 Bullet was extensively rebuilt by Loaded Gun Customs (rearsets, electrical work) Spannerland/Cosentino Engineering (Race Tech/Hagon suspension) and J&B Moto Co. (paint, Siuzuki GS 450 E fuel tank, Yamaha race fairing, paint, rear taillight) along with Cafe Racer magazine's Blake Kelly who not only tested the Enfield on the New Jersey Motorsports Park track on the series, but who was also responsible for re-designing the fuel injection system and running gear. The Bullet's top speed has been increased to 100 MPH and brake horsepower increased as well. " Bwahahahaha !..... D'oh ! Sorry. Ahhhhh.... No. Oversizing the ports and ripping them open, adding a Power commander ?.... No. "TOP" Custom Cafe racer builders in the country ? Well..... I remember a certain show, at a certain booth. Where one guy brought TWO complete Bikes that RAN ! And are still daily riders. Oh..... And another guy who brought ONE, that didn't run and wasn't even completed. Hey.... but the boy COULD talk . Another great decision by..... Well Fourteen different outfits to build a bike ?........ PO-lease ! Someone buy that bike and fix it !! Nice looking though I think..... There I go again ! Sorry Ace
Tom,Thank you again - I look forward to the head.RegardsRoeland
Hi Tom,would there be a benefit to consider titanium or alloy pushrods?ThanksRoeland
As I recall, they clocked the bike with radar stock and then never really mentioned the final speed. They didn't mention hitting the rev limiter so...Pretty bike but I'd call it a mostly cosmetic project. Scott
I just tried to find that episode and was unsuccessful. Was it that bad that they pulled the episode off of the internet?
I just tried to find it, but I didn't see it on YouTube.Don't know why.Those guys are hacks.
