Bog Bore on '09 G5
« on: May 09, 2010, 07:02:25 PM »
Anyone out there done the big bore conversion on an '09 G5?  I need to know how the relatively new systems are handling it before I launch myself down that path.

You don't know, dew yee? You can't sell that one because I can't use a bent C5 wheel. a scratched frame and part of a motor to get 45 horsepower ......  ;)

My wife says that I'm a bore, that's why I go riding without her. And it's great, especailly if I drop by a Tavern on the way back the next day or 2. ;D

It's old time biking with the gears where nature intended them and a front brake you never expected. It starts on the button and you don't have to take your hands off to signal turns. It's that bike you always wanted.

This is one of the reasons I love living in this country - Americans cannot leave anything mechanical well enough alone, it must be genetic or it must happen to you when you immigrate.

Some of us are content to leave well enough alone, some of us never can.  I really enjoy people who hot rod small engines.  I grew up with air cooled VWs.  The late model 1600cc dual port engine was fabulous, ran all day long at full throttle if you wanted.  Every piece of the engine and drive train were balanced to all the others.  Yet some people just need to tinker and port, polish, bore, stroke, turbo, etc.  Sure, you could just get a bigger engine and bolt it up but where's the fun in that?

Me?  I usually work on suspension first. It seems to be the weak link in every new bike and straight line speed was never my bag.
