    thanks mang i am totally chuffed it runs way better than i could dream it would .
    everybody asked what do you do to balance the crank afteb carving off a full kilo of iron from outer flywheels zones ,nothing and by god it runs a lot less buzzy than the sl motor did
    and it is snappy LIKE MAN IT WANTS TO ROAST THE REAR TIRE AND SHOWER ROOST IN A SOMEWHAT CYRIL DEPRE
    i have only had it on dirt to sample how it feels but you can pin it and just keep upshiftiong on cross-rutted shit that the sl wouild have been a handful on
    THE FOX FACTORY SHOCKS THAT I BUILT FROM PARTS ALL I HAD WAS PIOSTONS I USED KYB YAMAHA HPG SNO MACHINE ULTRA LIGHT HARD ANODISED BODIES
    JUST HAD TO TURN THE PISTONS DOWN .030'' FROM MEMORY
    SHIMM STACKS I CHOSE FROMM THE FOX FACTORY ARCHIVES IN THE MANUAL OF VIABLE VALVING AND IT FEELS AWESOME
    WHEN I GET OUT AND HIT SOME HOGH SPEED SHARP EDGED BUMPS IS WHEN I WILL SEE HOW WELL THE HIGH SPEED COMP STACK RESPONDS
    RIGHT NOW IT IS ALMOST TOO PLUSH IN THE REAR I ACTUALLYN NEED TO REMEMBER TO JACK IN A BIT MORE PRELOAD MY SAG IS A BIT TOO MUCH BUT MY CALCS ON THE SPRING RATES AND CHOICE OF DUAL RATE SPRINGING ARE CLOSE TO PERFECT I THINK
    THE FORKS FEEL GOOD IF A BIT STICKY BUT THEY HAVE ALREADY BEDDED IN A BIT AND GOTTEN MORE FREE
    THEY ARE MADE UP OUTM OF PARTS ANDB THE DU BUSHES I HAD TO FIT TO THE LOWER STANCHION TUBES AND TYPICAL MACHINIST COULD HAVE GIVEN THEM A COUPLE MORE THO OF RUNNING CLEARANCE
    LOL I WILL GET MY GOPRO MOUNTED SO WE CAN RELLISH THE BARK ITS ACTUALLY L;OUDER THAN I WANTED BUT OH WELL
    I HAVE IT MOUNTED ON ONE OF THE MOTOGP INSPIRED WINGLETS AND I NEED TO STUFF THE CANMERA CASE WITH COTTOIN LIKE I USED TOM HAVE IT BUT IF YOU CAN GET BY THE HORRIBLE SHIT NOISE YOU MIGHT GET AN I DEA OF THE RESPONSE HERE
    SKIDPAN IS A GOOD IDEA BUT I DONT PLAN ANY ROCK CRAWLING SO ILL PROBABLY SKIP THAT BUT SOME CASE SAVER TUBES ARE A GOOD IDEA
    YOU MIGHT NOTICE THE HOSES ON THE SIDE CASE I TOTALLY BYPASSED THE 2 PORTS THAT TRTANSFER OIL FROM THE LITTLE ROUND COVER TO THE GALLEYS IN THE SIDE CASE
    I DIDNT LIKE THAT THE IN AND OUT TO THE SPINNER FILTER ARE NOT COMPLETELY SEALED FROM EACHM OTHER
    THE BWAY HONDA HAS IT FLOW ISN NOT OPTIMISED
    I HAVE A COOLER BUILT FOR IT AND MAY PUT IN A FILTRT ELEMENT AS WELL SO AS TO DO AWAY WITH THE VOLUME OF FLOW RESTRICTION OF THE TRANSFER PIECE GOING INTO THE SPINNER
    I AM SPINNING THE CLUTCH BASKET AND HENCE THE PUMP 10% FASTER WITH THE CB450 BASKET AND PRIMARY DRIVE GEAR LASHUP
    I NEED TO GET MY ELECTRONIC COUNTDOWN ENGINEERING SPEEDO/ODO MOUNTED SO I DONT GET THE STATER'S ATTENTION JUST OVER 7K RPM FEELS LIKE 80MPH AND I,M REAL CURIOS TO SEE IF I GOT THAT GUESTIMATED RIGHT
    GEARING I MIGHT TRY ONE TOOTH UP ON THE C/.S SPROCKET
