I'm doing all my work with Bill, because he's one of the few who is operating on racing engine experience, rather than just theory.

I plan on buying a set of their mikuni carbs based on SCCTrim's success with them. 904 plus mikunis = 80 rwhp....

sounds good to me, get the credit card ready...
Not to rain on your parade, and maybe they are worthwhile. But i actually lost interest when SCCTrim said thay can't hold a candle to the stock carbs for dirvability. Plus he advanced a cam at the same time he dyno'd the carbs. So that 7 HP gain could partially be due to the cam tweak. But even If you got 7 HP, those carbs are expensive as he||. The Tbike cams may not do much or anything down low, but thier dyno (assuming they're being honest) shows about 10 HP gain and is i think about 40% cheaper. I'd definatly choose that option for obvious reasons, but the drivability factor is what really gets me. The bike may not be a powerhouse, but it runs beutifully and no amount of extra power would make me consider losing that. (well, maybe not "no amount" :-D )

Daz, the carb's were not properly tuned during the time I posted that. Since disabling the accel pumps the bike is great, acceleration down low is crisp, and throttle response is right on the mark.

Buying cam's over carb's is a mistake my friend...the carbs come with airbox removal as well as billet intakes. If you already have them the kit get's cheaper.

Ok, then here are some questions. Is the ridability now on par with the stockers? How much $? How much performance do you think they would contribute on a bike with airbox intact but the usual mods, (uni, drilled, no snork) and will they even fit the airbox? Are they easy to install?

Probably they are not “second to none” on everything. Actually neither is any of the many suppliers that spend their money advertising on this Forum.
Regardless of any bias by sympathy, friendship or whatever one may call any sort of favoritism, all the suppliers tend to be good and should be treated equally until somebody can point and prove any negative experience.
As far as the spelling of “gauge” is concerned, I don’t mind…
… mainly when I can save 50 bucks on a system certainly more accurate due to the reduced length of the oil line.
Here are my .002 cents :wink:

You need need to get your money back from your science teacher. (wink)

If you believe that the length of an oil (or any other fluid) line does not affect the accuracy of the pressure readout at its end then definitely we didn’t study physics (hydraulics) by the same books :(

If you believe that a pressurized oil line in the size and lengths that we're talking about here will vary ANY measurable amount, you are at the very least highly mistaken.

We utilized independent testers of our Oil Pressure Gauge Kit that had previously used the BP gauge. The readings are identical, as anyone would have expected. The BP kit is a very well made alternative that I would have no reservations recommending. The benefit of our kit is the placement of the gauge. You can see your pressure as easily as you can read your speed. Try doing that at 100MPH on your bike.

Your colors are showing......

By the way: If I would hold anything against you or your shop I wouldn’t have set a link to “New Bonneville” in my Portal.
You can check at:
http://riders.eurotriumph.com/links.php?t=sub_pages&cat=11

In my opinion you have very good and interesting items but that does not mean that you have the only good shop to buy after-market products.
Sorry to say but you are not “second to none” just because…
… Nobody is!

Please do not take any criticism as a personal attack.

By the way: I’m not in the selling business neither am I or my website sponsored by ANYBODY or any company.
I support myself all the expenses.

You call "ignorant facts" a difference of US$50.00 (more 33.33%) for the same item? (actually the BP product has more parts)

I know that you have a privileged place in this Forum but you shouldn't abuse that fact the way you do. Actually, to my knowledge you are the only advertiser of this place doing it.

OK. Now I’m ready for your “fan legion” (and personal lawyer) to attack me!
GO AHEAD!!!
