72 horse at the wheel with stock pistons....yeah, that seems very optomistic. But maybe their cams really are good? I dig their pipes. I'd like to see them on a bonnie or Thrux.
their cams are bloody expensive, double the core exchange ones out of the states, do you reckon they are worth that much more,yeah Doc you're right - these guys seem very enthusiastic about Scramblers, and of course, are on the same island as me (albeit at the other end, but), so I don't get the hit we Antipodeans have to wear for freight (though I do pay GST). I'd like to take my bike up there (excellent ride, and Nelson is a nice place to visit anyway) and get them to do the cams and pipes and breathing in one hit, so that she's optimised. That should make a very versatile and pretty sharp handling and running package out of a Scrambler; as long as one has no illusions - if you want serious speed and horsepower, Bonnies and the like aren't the machines, obviously.
Only thing is at the moment, I've stretched the finances to get my Scrambler without sacrificing my good green Bonnie, sohave to wait a while before more serious bike-related spending...
