That's awesome! I used to build racing scooters 10-12 years ago. I chickened out at 98 mph with this one. It would turn 20,000 rpms and i would go around and embarrass 600 sport bikes with it during bike week here.

Your tougher than me! I turned on the seat heaters the other morning going to work and it was 61 degrees!

Got my 2nd hand boost gauge in the mail today.
Due to a software issue in the cb gen4 dash it reads out wrong. So now I can see how much boost I pull.

Got to 9psi in 3rd and forth.

The road was a little wet so in 2nd I only get 4 to 5 psi before it slipped the wheels.

Looking clean and nice but those hoses hanging down look to me like something there to be snagged some time in the future. Could hard lines be bent to shape to keep them up and/but out of the way?

It would almost be better if they came over top and the filter bracket had the in/out on the other side (rotated 180°) from where they are now. Or came in from the top with some 90° fittings. You could always drill/tap for them and plug the existing depending on the galleys etc.

The oil lines are no lower than when you would fit your oil filter in the wheel well of a beetle and comes no lower than the sump.

I see why you ask, they run under the vband clamp, and they're about 1cm (0.39inch) under that.
It looks like they run against the j-pipe but they don't Image

I'll try this again as another post came in at the same time as mine which then disappeared.

One of the problems with photos is with depth. They work well in the "X" and "Y" directions but not for the "Z" direction (depth). For example: you are out looking at scenery and the mountain(s) look so clear and close but when you take a photo the mountains look so far away and smaller.

Thanks!

If there's a day that is a little less chilly, i'll ask a buddy to film me!

No problem Lee, after looking at the picture I saw it could seem confusing!

Greetz!

I had never heard of "Father Ted" before so I had to look it up. As far as I know it wasn't shown here in the "States" or, if it was, I never knew about it. 25 episodes and was originated in Ireland and shown in Ireland, England New Zealand and Australia. While I don't normally talk about Politics or religion and the comedy show was about the latter, another reason why I am blind to the comedy show :roll: :lol: .

No, my discussion was on the reality of photos as an example of what the camera does. Also I worked for 34+ years in Engineering as what is now called a "Tech" and how we dealt with (in this case) showing 3-dimensional problems/designs.
