You sure have your work cut out for you right now Ace! Between taking on 2CVs AVL AND my twin heads, you must be really crunching some new numbers you haven't had to deal with before. But I can't think of anyone else that could possibly work the magic better than you can. I really hope those Big head rockers will fit the AVL. That'd be sick!Scottie
Wow this is great news considering BW has said he will no longer offer the S cams. i would really like to see some more tests done. unfortunately i dont have to $ to do it at the moment.
The fastest 500 AVL is probably Basanti's track bike in India, he has done the squish band modification and various racing mods as well as the S cams. Perhaps if there IS enough demand for another batch of cams in the US, BW could market them through Ace, rather then send lots of individual sets over the Atlantic.One more concern on the technical front, for a seriously thrashed engine I would want to replace the cam followers (and guides) on the AVL engine with the much more robust items from the C.I. engine, ideally the Samarat thicker stem version with the hard chromed feet and bronze guides. I have had a set of the AVL cam followers fail (the foot snaps off and bounces around in the timing cover looking for other things to damage) as they are not really up to the job. With the stock rockers this needs the push rods extending by approximately 3/8", but as you would be using custom push rods this should not bother you too much!Have fun, guys! A.
Ace, Not rushing you at all on the other ideas, but are you going to recommend the TM-32 as a carb choice? I can still get one for 127 free shipping. I'll order it soon before that offer goes away if you approve. Plus I want to set it on my coffee table & stare at it while visions of warm weather, a running engine & thumping drum in my head PS: It's F-ing freezing here. Got to run the Husquevarna snow blower twice this week.
