All good points:
sunnbob is that Quake logo derivative you have now?
That bikes's a friggin beauty.
Regarding the brakes - Have you considered upgrading the front master? There are a couple out there with smaller pistons for a better mechanical advantage.
BTW - At one point Randakk was talking about adding a rev limiter to his blower bike because it wound up so fast. I don't know if he ever found one for it.
I have been looking at the front master cylinder as a way of increasing the effort ratio. Randakk's is a very good price too. I have been looking at used off later bikes
Rev limiter is a good idea though.
Dyna makes one that works very well and is easy to wire in.
I will check that out thanks. I have the shift light on the dash set to 8k5 but that won't help if I miss a gear!
I know Qui-gon's bike is done already. I'm just thinking about future builds.
I wish! It will never be finished! There are many upgrades in the pipeline. I want to try the 78 engine I have with the softer cam soon. I am also looking at direct injection as an option and controlling all of it electronically. All of it depends on our circumstances here and whether I export the bike back to Europe when we leave.
