SB:

From this basic tutorial link, it is clear that since you read and understand this kind of material of quadratic equations polynomials ... written by PHDs, you must have alphabets like FRCMDPHDBEMES... behind your name, you just won't admit ;).  Thanks for the link.

No such thing ...... I just go deep and read a LOT ..... and I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express once ......  ::) But seriously - this stuff is not beyond the realm of the regular fellow - you just have to WANT to make the knowledge yours. Regular fellows who study in college become engineers - and my hero, Henry Yunick, started Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Florida - without the benefit of ever setting foot in a university. The only initials I have as far as engineering goes are "UHK" ...... My formal college training is in education - my passion is tuning.
Spare the pig iron - spoil the part!

So does the jerk jerk the jerk cams to the left and right in a circular motion to get just the right amount of jerk needed to jerk the valves with the jerk cams?
Man, now I want some beef jerky.    ;D

Tutorial- check . Measurements- check . Micro- thingy - check .
 You guys fkin ROCK.
 Now if only I could stop riding long enough to tweak....

    That's the hardest part of it Dave !..... But then again, we have a pretty long winter around here. ;)



 
Hey GHG just wondering ... Why did you change your fuel pump ? Was it not moving enough?


  No special reason Dave. I just chose to use a different tank for the bike.  Although it WOULD HAVE been much easier to use the stock tank.. . I just liked the tank I chose , with seat /cowl and fender combination.  Just thought the proportions looked right for the bike... to me at least.  But , keeping the stock RE front end.  I was just thinking...... it had to look like a Cafe Racer, but it had to look like it was a RE Cafe Racer ..... You know ?  And retain the distinctive front end.. Otherwise it would look like every other Cafe' out there, except with a different motor.  :-\       AND...... I had made the tank and tins for another project. But, honestly I lost complete interest in it shortly after getting the C5.  Ruined me for other bikes ...

I don't wanna HEAR any crap about your measly three-month winter in New Jersey!  ::) Up here in the REAL tundra, we get winter from October 'til May ...... and that's a LOT of time to read up on tuning and make parts!  ;) ;D

   Maybe Gremlin...Just maybe ?...  Or maybe not ?  The last time up on the Dyno, the injector duty cycle didn't get above 40% at most.  That's what the PC-V software was showing anyway....

  Scarry Now !.... How quick I got it up to 90 indicated in traffic.  Have to lay off the happy handle a bit till I can get her tuned, got a weeee bit hot  ;)
