Re: From 107 to 128

okay, I hope cams are untouched, rest is swapable to good std engine with JE pistons fitted (new rings only), so you can do another one.

Re: From 107 to 128

TSS still have slipper clutch on their website, not sure about availability. Quality is good.

Re: Bigger Bore Etc

Congratulation, I remember what a great feeling it was breaking in new engine which was running fine. Sounds healthy through rev range, seems like you have no problem in mid revs.

If you manage to do dyno run in future it would be nice.

Re: 10W40 or 10W50?

Yes, I forgot oem clutch plates dont like full synt oil. There is lot of good semi oils in 10w40 anyway.

Re: 10W40 or 10W50?

Theory in oils has moved up a little in recent 15 or so years. While 10w50 will have better protection in high temp, 10w40 will not even reach this temp because it has better heat exchange due to better flow, and this better flow also means better protection on some engine parts and less power loss ...

Re: Home made flow bench

You are correct, however, the ex cams really don't have any more lift. At least not the 3 sets I've measured. They have .405" of lobe lift on both the exhaust and intake. I have not yet verified the timing events yet though. Either way, "gain" is relative, if you move the power to where you more us...

Re: Home made flow bench

And here's the gears: Zoom in and you'll see the difference. Bit of 50:50 here but I'm saying the one the right is the machined one. I've not experience of machining but the holes look cleaner cut and the teeth have what look like grooves in them that I'm guessing are from machine tools. Looks like...

Re: Rejetting of carbs

48 pilots, and I would buy 180, 182 and 185 jet, bigger is probably not needed. Start with 2 turns out on front and 2.25 on pilot screws, 178f 180r jets, rear needle shimmed by 0.5mm. This should give you good baseline, you can try go one or two sizes up on mains then. Other things you can change is...

Re: Aprilia SL Falco thoughts

My friend has done the RSV swinging arm and shock thing. Other than changing the end cans it's stock. Falcos have smaller valves than the RSV and a less aggressive riding position. Listed at 118 bhp I believe but is pretty quick mid range 118 bhp is on engine, not rear wheel. Falco has similar powe...

Re: what have you done to your "bike" today

tried new baffles configuration along with new carb setup. It is now louder over viper baffles, but still reasonable. This is 3rd incarnation, 1st was pipe itself, 2nd with metal strip added, now 3rd with beer caps. I can change it to something more serious, but it seems to be working as intended :)...

Re: Bigger Bore Etc

Oh for sure, without a lot of tuning it will not run right. The biggest thing is having both cylinders draw in at once starves the airbox. Ditch the box when twingled and get the jetting sorted. It'll fly after that. Totally different animal. AV Big bang configuration, nice. Is it revving freely to...
