I don't need to measure anything between the two,air cooled motors are alway built looser in the pistons and cyclinder to accomadate the more severe heating and cooling cycle. Btw,assuming you were to ever meet me or any other tiger 1050 on the road,I or they would gladly let you contemplate there or mine liscence plate and tailights as you see them fade off ahead of you.

I would pay to see a race between Mike's Bonnie and Duncan's Tiger.

It would not be fair to you you have a smaller motor your 1050 to my 1087.The 113 hp is that not what triumph rated your bike at? if thats the case thats crank hp you are only makeing around 100 at the rear wheel on the dyno.That will not be enough.140 mph wont cut it ether I will have a easy 10 to 20 mph on you in top end.that is with 9000 rpms.I wouldnt want to take your money you dont have a clue what a bonnie can be made to do.

Why do I feel young on my bike

I'm not the clueless one here fella. I am talking stock bonnys. Imagine what could be done with the equal amount of money and work if it were applied to a real motor! In any case this poor fellas OIL thread has been ruined with your sillyness.

The look on your face afterward would be worth it.

As already stated, "unless its built to the hilt". Sad part is that it would take that much money and alteration to just barely beat a stock bike. That leaves ME and my crankcase full of cheap oil with the last laugh.

Talking

Let me have the last word here: stop putting down other people's bikes period.

What's the point? We all love our bikes for very specific and unquantifiable reasons so it doesn't make sense to play e-wang "ima tell you what's what" armchair racing on the internet.

Settle it on a dragstrip, and keep it yourselves.
