'Been Thinking ... (cont'd)
« on: April 10, 2016, 01:41:05 pm »
Okay, fast forward from Sept '14 ...

'Got 2-into-1s from RB Racing and the DynoJet Power Vision from Fuel Moto.

Put a Chopped Tour Pack on detachable solo mount. 'Got the adjustable vented lower fairings. 'Got a Mustang solo and cut it down to fit and had an old Brother stitch me up a matching cover for it and the tour pack back rest. Styling now. Also installed the Hayden M6 Primary chain tensioner.

Last week I had an old Brother with some special mechanic skills drop in the Progressive Cartridges in the front legs ... wonderful! Then I pulled the trigger on a cam. It is a drop-in chain drive Fueling Reaper 525. Added Fueling adjustable push rods and discovered that "adjustable" does not necessarily mean "quick change". Who knew?

In general terms, this cam is a monster from 2000 to 4000. Perfect. Exhaust lift is higher than intake and stays open longer (runs cooler). Overlap is only 90. Just what I was looking for. And ... I need a better clutch.   8)

Just a note about tires ... changed out the rear at 15K and the front at 18K. 'Could have gotten a little more out of the front. 'Stayed with the Dunlops. I like these new dual compound tires.

With 100 hp and 110 tq I haven't had any issues with stock clutches although i have recently added a 15% over spring. If I were to go for more clutch I'd just add a lock up mechanism. Jamie at fuelmoto was running just that with stock clutches on his 130 hp street glide. From what I hear some brand will fit without primary mod and will install thru the derby cover. Some may take a little grinding on the inside. I'd get with Jamie or David SEU on that.
