Left this morning to get my new motor dyno'd . Part way and the bike died for a second or two and went again ... figured WTF then it quit completely . Started looking around and heard a hissing noise , thought great a flat too . Nope , ended up the tool pouch came open and a wrench was arcing out the battery making it hiss like a mother . Got the seat off , wrench out but the battery was screwed . My wife came got me , got her battery and finally got to the dealer . Just luck it didnt burn , puke acid or blow up . My 1070 ended up running 172 hp , not bad concidering how hot and humid it is here today . Motor is built fairly mild too ... but it is big fun to ride though now
. Think I'm going to tape my tool pouch shut later ....

Same thing happened to me but it got gought in my chain and sprocket.

I now put heavy rubber bands on my tool kit to keep it closed and the tools tight together.

You were lucky.

Pretty freaky thing to have happen. What motor did you tweak, a 1000cc gixxer motor? That is some nice ponies. What exactly did you do to the motor?

My 01 1k . Did +3mm JE pistons , Carillo H beam rods , Web 540/566 cams and some head work . Works pretty nice so far .

The motor has 13/1 JE FSR pistons , Webs are at 105/105 , STV are still in , exhaust is a Ti full Graves . I had .002 deck height and used a .035 head gasket ( was told the gasket would compress a few thousand ) . It is stiill .035 + the .002 for squish .... Wished I got a .030 head gasket now . I would have been happier with .032 instaed of .037 for squish . Should be a bunch more power there if I mess with the cam timing , get the squish back where it should be and try my other throttle bodies with the STV's removed and 44mm bore . It is a alright start so far but should get better . Before this motor with stock bore , same pipe , yosh stg 1's bike only pulled 148 ... the dyno I used is less than some I think . At that rate it is a 24 hp and 10 ft/lb gain on the same dyno ... . I am going to go get some mapping done soon , map is just a fairly close one from another bike to get it going . I will pick up the graph soon and post it for you .... with all the messing around with the battery I didnt remeber the sheet when I left the dealer .
