I am still in shock, trying to get my head around this, and realise the ramifications. Top marks to Tom, wondering what the torque and power curve will look like, will this lead to a more acute power delivery and at what rpm.Kevin
I've only been into bikes for like a year and a half and don't yet understand all this stuff (though I am trying) so all I can say is: more power -- cool! And also:How will this affect the reliability? It seems from reading many of the other posts about Fireballs that the original set up was pretty damn reliable (or bulletproof if you will). Will the extra power put a lot of strain on the bottom end (this is assuming that you have done up the bottom end properly)...I guess what I am getting at is: you made the Fireball to behave like a street bike -- is this more of a racing set up? As someone who is looking into fireballing their bike in the future -- is this for me? Or is this just a project to see how much power you can get from a Bullet?And lastly: Chuck is this for your bike? Even more reason to get a beer now...I'd love to hear about it in person.
Hi Chuck,Thanks! I appreciate the support!I guess this is getting a little too esoteric for a lot of the readership.
Wow!! Ace, those are incredible results. Are you going to use the same compression ratio as the standard Fireball? cochi
