UPDATE!!

I got a new Mikuni VM34 Carb for my bike. Got that delivered today! Megaphone installed long back, UNI Air filter ready for use. I got the jetting specs for AVL 500 (VM34 carb Mikuni) once everything is set... I will install them.

Also, I think its nearly impossible for me to get the "S" Cams as VERY less amount of people in here heard about these. So I will work on this later.. maybe just try out other alternatives.

Once I am done with these modifications, I will work on the compression. Probably get new 535 pistons for my bike. But these upgrades will take some time as I need to save up pretty much for other things.

Thanks to everyone for all the info, especially Basanti and BW! :)

I could probably get more 'S' cams made, the problem is they are not cheap to produce in small numbers, so a lot of money gets tied up whilst waiting to sell them all in order to recoup the outlay and a [small] profit. I had 6 sets made a couple of years back and sold them all, but apart from the odd enquiry, I have not seen enough potential demand for a second batch to be produced. These cams work very well, but not everyone who owns a machine already in the minority, where Bullets are concearned [AVL] wants to make these changes, so it's just lack of demand / high production costs that put the spanner in the works for this one.

Food for thought.

Best performance mod I made ,..was to loose 20 lbs. I understand that is not an option for everyone.

I was able to hit 80 mph (indicated) on a slight incline.
 Before the weight lose, I as only able to achieve 76 mph.

Yes, weight reduction helps a lot. By the way..what do I remove from my bike? I don't use the E Starter.. So planning to remove the entire assembly. After that what all do I remove?

I would love to get some weight off my bike :D

           I weigh 140 pounds. I can't wait for the day when I can finally get the '08 Classic into 5th gear once in a while (right now she's got 369 miles) & do some REAL plug chops & get the old Mikuni dialed in the way it oughta be. I just gotta live long enough & get enough rainless days when I don't hafta cut friggin' grass.

140 is pretty good. I am somewhere near that weight range. Maybe a bit lesser than 140 pounds. Few days back I went for a short trip and had managed to do 88mph on a straight flat. Thanks to the "Rollie Free" position (minus the "rollie free outfit :P). I think the actual speed would be around 80~82mph.

By the way what Mikuni  carb you are planning to use? :)

Finally my VM34 is installed! Loving the round slides! Next goal will be the porting work and compression work :)

I think egli said you can make any carb work.  Ask Ace what carb he runs on his Bullet.  Yeah thats right a properly setup factory micarb.  Save your money and buy gas and tires.

Egli? He's a legend!

Also I think that Ace is running a TM32 instead of VM28 on his Fireball. VM28 would do good justice to my AVL but I want to make it different. Will be a powerhouse for sure!

Hi Dampking,
 Here is a pic of the piston crown mod I made, as discussed in the P.M.'s, which I couldn't add pictures to.
