It sounds like you bought the wrong tool for the job you're trying to do. You can't make a racehorse out of a packmule. If you need a bike for sustained high speed,a long stroke single is not the answer. You can throw a lot of money and effort at it and still not be happy with the result.
Lol, Darvin Jahnke i'm not looking to do 180km/h but I dont think 95 - 105 kph is a unreasonable request Right now the bike is willing but I am a bit nervous to push it over 90 until I have taken off some of the restrictions off ie restricted pipe, dodgy air filter etc, its just making the bike work harder when it doesn't need to. So no, i'm not looking for a racehorse, im pretty happy with what I have. Ace my elevation is 1741 meters
Hey young gun,She looks like a real honey but I think you'd benefit starting wise by rotating the kickstart lever up say two notches on its shaft. This will give you better leverage for a good follow through.Chuck.
Well my Ace Air Canister has arrived and been installed and wow, happy with the results. I didn't think I would notice the difference but wow, the bikes a lot more gutsy in the low end and sounds a lot better a lot more fun to ride! Can't wait to get the rest now. Ill take a pic once the sun comes up on this side. Oh and the air box has now become my toolbox, bonus!Thanks Tom! great service
On another note, the guy that serviced my bike said my sprag clutch was gone which wasnt a suprise I have been kick starting the bike up until now so its not a biggy but its something I will need to get fixed sooner or later.
Ace, I thought you stopped selling your filter a while ago? Back when the chrome melted some guys seat with reflection from the chrome. Are they back on the market or am I crazy. ERC
Yeah I was hoping to replace the exhaust for the shorter version but my budget has had to be spent on other things
I have heard about drilling out the core of the bazooka muffler and just having it straight through. Maybe others can advise otherwise but it could be a cheap way to get some performance without spending much money.
......... The thing i most like is the loss of the old mirrors that looked like they were being held up by a Mexican bandit ...............
@Mike, fixing the front brake issue, does it just require re-adjustment or do I need to take the whole front wheel off and open it up?
