Alright,not sure when it will be featured but I gather it will be next year sometime,just geared it up by going to a 34 t front pulley and it dropped the revs and vibes in the 65-75 mph range so its all good,mind you I thought it was going to be a 2-3 hour job until I found the bearing had rusted to the mainshaft so some creative pullers were made and plenty of anti-seize on there now and I will see if I can find the other set of switches this week.

If it's a full article and featured, their turn around time is roughly 4 months from when they take the photos, to when it features.

Ok I have basically been torture testing my shovel with some big rides, so far I have had the headlight shell crack,had to raise the gearing as it was revving a bit hard,and sussing out the oil level in the tank as it was puking a bit out the breather also mucked around with the jetting as it was using a bit of fuel,made new tank mounts out of urethane,shifted the guard to follow the tyre as the bigger fr pulley moved the wheel forward,and found the rear chain adjusters are not equal so have to string the wheels, speedo needed a better earth and just got back from taupo and found one of my front tank mounts is leaking so have had to chip some of the paint away to find where its leaking Sad so just need to purge the tank of all the fumes and weld it up might fuck a bit of the paint but so be it as the thing is a blast to ride and haven't had so much fun on a bike for years as it's always in the back of your mind that something could go wrong when I ride this bike reminds me of my old bsa's and trumpies Ah the good old days.

Will woody I welded it up,I degreased it flushed with water ,degreased again and hot soapy water and then flushed again then put the adaptor I made into the tank and into the exaust of my xr for ten minutes then rang colin from kiwi race cars to see if what I had done was good enough he said it should be fine and as he was only around the corner at the mad butcher's he would hear it go bang from there,thankfully this didn't happen so chucked it back on and went for a ride all sweet,and PC rang up for some additional info on the bike as heavy duty mag now has the pics of it so it should appear sometime this year.
