    200 HP Chase Begins .... Now Completed 14 Months In. WooHoo !!

    Rear wheel dyno peak HP 199 is at about 6800 to 7200. Rear wheel peak TQ 170 is at about 5200 to 5600. All pulls done in 4th. I have been thinking. Since my stock dyno pulls showed a 15% loss from crank to rear wheel, I think it is possible this build will have my crank HP at about 235 HP.

    Are progressive fork springs worth the $

    I chose the fork springs from Patriot Suspension. Only $40 on Ebay. I used Bel Ray 7.5 weight fork oil. The handling performance transformation is well worth the work.

    What do you guys recommend as the best throttle lock for a 2015 Rocket Touring?

    I have the Kaoko and hardly use it. To many rolling hills around here to use the throttle lock. Got the Cramp Buster and like it quite well.

    All loaded up in the trailer. Heading to Nel's 2 Wheel Dyno Works in the morning. 500 miles from my home, but worth it for getting it dyno tuned.

    JustDad and I took a long ride today. We went up US95 to Council, ID. Saw some spectacular scenery. After returning to the valley, JustDad had to head home. I road around the valley another 75 miles or so. Got a total of 635 on her now. Got 34.6 MPG today. Oil and filter change on Thursday...

    Neutral issue

    Oh yes. My 2006 has always been that way. Over 50, 000 miles on it now. Best to snick into neutral from second just before coming to a stop. Or after stopping to park, just kill the engine then snick into neutral.

    Progressing nicely. JustDad and I went for a good ride today. Got another 225 miles on her today. Now 330 total. Going riding again Wednesday looking for another 300 to get done before we leave on Friday for Kirkland. BTW: She is smooth and gutsy.

    200 HP Chase Begins .... Now Completed 14 Months In. WooHoo !!

    Took her out for 2 short test rides for about a total of 36 miles. Jerry took her out Friday and put another 75 miles on it. She runs real good. I am off work this week so the plan is to put about 600 miles on her and change the oil and filter then take her to Nels at 2 Wheel Dyno Works in...

    Ok so my deadline is approaching to get this bike running right. Today I mailed both sets of injectors to RC Fuel Injection in Torrance, Ca. Should have them back sometime next week. Let's see what happens with their work on them.

    Marc Marquez comes back and Norton's Stuart escapes the law

    MM finished 6th today in the race in Texas. He looked good and I'm glad he rode some what Conservatively (for him). I was afraid he would over do it and crash. But something I noticed watching the after race interviews ... these guys are just kids.
