and so the waiting and praying begin...

dropped off the totality of the parts at the garage today for the rebuild (balanced crank, bearings, gaskets,...). I sure hope everyone gets it right this time....... this 2.5 month dry spell sucks....... am having them play with the cams; will be putting the Mori Stg 1 exhaust cam in the intake position (249 degrees, 10.1mm lift - making it half-way between the OEM and Mori intakes). I asked to have it set at 102 degrees. On the exhaust side, OEM exh. cams timed at 108 degrees (107.5 is OEM spec). This gives me a total of 37 degrees overlap, and combined with the early intake timing, should move the power downwards slighty (torque peak at maybe 6500 rpm), but placing it right where I want it, in the critical (to me) 3500 to 7000 rpm range, with instant response and torque for roll-ons and pulling out of corners... here's to hoping it works out.

On another note, getting the bike back will allow me to bolt up and test that HRCPro-replica subframe brace..... Hope to have the HDJ-equipped carbs back from Factory Pro any day now too (or so I hope anyhow).... more stuff that looks good on paper....

anyhow, that's my rant for today....

Bike is up and running..... I've had very few chances to ride it (mostly due to work schedule) but am happy with the changes I made (ie. cam timing). The bike seems to pull better in the mid-range, which is what I was hoping for. I had the shock rebuilt and linkage greased at the same time so that works better too.

Winter is just around the corner here so the bike will be bathing in mothballs very shortly, lol

I will report back in the spring once I have had more time to ride and evaluate......

BTW, still no (HDJ-equipped) carbs back so that will wait until spring too... have high hopes for those babies too

much the same as above. Bikes seems to have a more solid feel to it, but I will need more saddle time to be sure..... sorry...

HRCPro-replica subframe brace
The WHAT?
Pics, narrative description, background please.
What is the issue being addressed?
What is this "Brace"?
How is the brace supposed to effect the issue?

Thanks
