I was talking to BW (Paul Henshaw) recently and he did mention that he ran out of those CDI boxes but according to him Hitchcock's performance TCI is pretty much based on his Ignition unit. So it looks like AVL'ers can use them too. Tom - About the compression part - I thought the 535 piston alone would bump the compression by loads right? In that case there isn't any way to get the squish band corrected ? or there is a way to do it?Regards,Sanket
Yes, I did read basanti's post somewhere where he mentioned that 175 psi was safe for him. I guess, I will for go for the S cams and then work on the 500, if not satisfied, then I can prolly get a 535 piston for the AVL. Or maybe use the 535 piston from UCE, if that's a flat top piston. Also, is it possible to set the squish clearance right with the UCE500's piston? They aren't flat tho.
so as anyone been able to have a 535 AVL that is somewhat reliable???
im eager to learn. although my 2007 avl electra only has 5000 miles on it. im sure ill just wait until it goes to try a 535
Measured my conrod side to side play;it's 1/8", so I understand I'm good for this rebuild, Sanket, I would like to have one on hand as I ride about 12,000 miles a year, and with the S cam upgrade, I'll be needing a new crank soon, I'll be doing my homework and be ready to install it then! Matt
hey ace im no engine builder but i read somewhere that using a copper gasket to raise the deck height will help the "squish".would something like the copper gaskets that hitchcocks supplies work?http://www.hitchcocksmotorcycles.com/accessory-engine-cylinderhead
how do i measure squish? or does anyone know what the measurment on the avl is stock?
