Looking good!I have had several of my Bullet friends tell me that they are smitten with the look of that bike.Sounds good too!
It does look like a very fun machine!I'm noticing that the Iron Barrel forum here is not as active as it used to be.I think that we Iron Barrel people are getting fewer, and the new UCE people are getting more numerous.
Regarding the UCE models, I noticed Hitchcocks is offering a carb conversion kit, as well as a drum brake conversion kit, for those that like things the old way. I passed on a 2010 at a great price because it does'nt have a kicker, don't care for the disc brakes, the efi, or that there's not much for modding yet. I'm sure in time it will change, I probably would have bought the newer model if those things were standard, but in the end I wanted the "original" original, and the ability to make it the way I want it,. I'm sure there are a lot of people with the same thinking. Or maybe people are waiting for the twin and Cafe Racer?
Hi Ace, If you fit a carb, this would at least remove any fuel cutoff via the ecu from the equation, leaving only the ignition side to limit the revs [if that's what it does], but it may be worth checking the behaviour of the valve train as this sounds more than a little like my experiences with the AVL 500 a few years ago, where inlet valve bounce turned out to be the culprit.
