Are you doing the spring giro on your Wards? My buddy and I will probably run ours too. We could be TEAM MONKEY WARDS. I have a few other giro bikes if my wards doesn't run. You are welcome to one too.
Let me know if you ever decide to sell that body work at a price I can afford.
Mr jack, it's an AVL lean burning, but not the ALL NEW gizmo UCE (whatever that means) as reviewed in CW. This one is an '09 Electra with a CV carb. A wider kick-start lever was installed to clear the rear-sets, but I kept getting my pants cuff caught on it- so I took it off. (I wouldn't be able to use it anyway)
I was looking into getting one of the new Deluxes with that motor . I just don't like the 70mph top speed . But I've heard getting a highway kit ( bigger carb , airbox kit and front sprocket. Not sure about with EFI ) you can get about 85-90 out of one .And that new motor can hack it .
Mr Wanker, I have no clue about a kit to go faster (although 90 sounds like pushing it unless you also put better bearings and the whole deal in there). The iron barrel models have a 535 kit, but I don't think they make that engine anymore.
I'm still doing break-in, so have only dallied around 55mph a little of late. However, this bike I got for most of the riding I do anyway- which is in the mountains here. Except for the occasional straight, 50-55 is the most I'd do anyway. I really need to dump these old-style Avans and put on a set of Hagons before I push it any.
MISTER Asaw, I'm reaching for my asbestos gloves so I can hold the phone...
