It's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than the other way around

Sometimes I do miss clicking second gear and yanking a clutch less wheelie at 75mph
:rofl:



Slow is definitely safer which is why I ride Harley and no longer have speed

Welp, just ordered Cams and a tune. Should be about 90 to the tire.


The reason is the cam tensioners go around 40,000, just hit 40k.
If they go, it's not good, wrecks the motor..... Thus, while he is already there replacing the cam tensioners, might as well pop in hotter cams

.. It's exciting

All is good, bike is done. He is tuning it right now. I had a little scare, pushrod bore was a bit scuffed thus the possibility of the motor eating itself was a concern.
In any event, I'll be smoking the rear tire off tomorrow (y)

Sounds great Darren! How is the PAH?

So I asked him about breaking it in, he said "You won't Man, just ride it like you stole it."

I turned the table on him saying ok, if it were your bike how would you break it in?

Wrench said he would not go above 3,000 RPM for 500 miles.


Thus, I rode ten miles last night, did not hit it once. I'm gonna try to break it in right... I've put almost twelve thousand dollars into this thing because I have been beating, the absolute fuck out of it since it was new. Most people don't blow the trans three times in 34,000 miles..... 😭💪💪🌞🔜🍺


It's a completely different bike, I'm happy putting around listening to it POP... hahaha

After 120 mellow miles (under 3,000 RPM) I am happy to report she moves out a bit better now with the hotter cams.

It fell on its face pretty quick as he set the RPM low @5250....I just left him a message suggesting we turn up the Wick a bit... Maybe 6,500
