It makes you feel proud when an 11 year older 1K is earning respect from the latest and greatest 1K owners.
EDIT: Interested in the piston gas porting details if it's not a secret. Is blow by an issue with the aftermarket or even OEM pistons from your experience?
What did you end up degreeing the exhaust on. 103 on the intake?
What is the JE FSR piston? Never mind, found it, it's slipper skirt.
With that cam timing, you have a lot of overlap so you will have a midrange from hell that pulls all the way to the top as seen from your dyno draph. :factI went with 107/105, webcam states 103/105 but after some test in the dyno, I came up with that timing without losing any on low and mid revs. It's a real pita too change the timing with the engine still in the frame. I'm glad that I'm done with that.
Hi Gixan,Hi Almgren,
Glad you are digging the bike and your riding pic is showing some nice inside moves.
I believe you when you say you are passing S1000RR's ...do you do this without any type of traction control ? Cause those bikes with TC can be just pinned down the straights and won't wheelie. Plus QS and I noticed when I rode one, tighter gear spacing 3rd through 5th.
Even though Bimmer only has between 175-180 HP lol, you are still going to be near peak power to get by, riders being equal. If no TC, How do you manage this (wheelies/wheelspin etc.) or does the superior torque do most of the damage.
10-4 .. must be a thrill to ride.Hi Gixan,
My traction control sits in my wrist...not failsafe though
Of course I've different sprockets/gearing when I'm at the track, I also have QS on the bike. Often on the straights I almost have the frontwheel a couple of inches in the air the whole straights. You have to have some sort of throttecontrol with this amount of power. And I think much of the advantage over the S1000RR is that I've 20hp more than the BMW at 6000rpm up to 10000rpm.
I've also raced against S1000RRs and a 2011 ZX10 (they are not limited here as they are in the US) on the street/freeway, and sure, it can be tough to hold down the frontwheel, but I can walk away fairly easy.
What's left to do?Man, that orange and black looks good! Very rare......I have never seen one in person.
What's new man?? How's the bike running? Done anything new to the motor since the last time you gave me an update?
