And some notes on other comments
I'm afraid that I am not a writer, so I will definitely go back and edit the article to make it more clear and differentiate the performance and reliability enhancemants. As to your questions, we did change the sprocket tooth count to increase low end torque. Using gearing commander we determined that changing just the front sprocket would give us the best results. The speedo drive is in place now, we simply took the pictures before the cable arrived, good eye for detail. As far as the brakes are concerned, not upgrading them was simply a budget issue. Your notes on possible options is appreciated, and we may do an upgrade in the future. The pipe clearance is is ok on hard turns. The battery is smaller and only weighs 4.5lbs, Yes you could skip lunch, but now you can skip lunch and have a lighter bike too. As for exhaust wrap as a performance upgrade...
"What the exhaust wrap really does is prevent your exhaust tubes to cool down. Therefore an exaust system equiped with the right set of wrap will keep the exhaust gases of your engine at a high temperature. Maintaining the exhaust gases at higher temperatures increases performance on several levels
When traveling at a higher speed in your wrapped exhaust system, the gases will increase the scavenging effect and improve the performance of the intake and exhaust systems as a whole. The exhaust gases are therefore removed faster from your motorcycle or car exhaust system when hot.
Exhaust wrap also improves the performance of the engine in general. Once again, the hot exhaust gases will be expulsed more quickly, leaving room for purer air in the combustion chamber. This will increase the quality of the air-fuel mixture and then improving the engine's performance. Check our wide range of product to find the right exhaust wrap that perfectly fit your needs." - thermal velocity-
I know that quote is from a vendor, but it's pretty clean and precise.
The name of the bike is in honor of our partners grandad who passed away recently.
those are aftermarket coils and plug wires
Again thanks for your input, I'll clean up our site article so it's more clear.
hillsy: LOL, Sorry about the headlight. as i said in a previous post, it was an oversight when we took the pics.
Teazer: Never seen the bike you speak of. Thanks for your engineering prowess. Clearly you're an idiot.
Thanks again for your input.
