I was thinking the same thing. I just didn't say it. Also, Ummm, you need another brake rotor on that front wheel sir.... :039:

it actually isn't as hot as you would think....its right in the air stream, and while under boost it gets toasty,  its not terrible..

That is just kewl. I'm not sure I would have become bored with that. This V1000 I have. Its kinda hard to explain. Its not all that fast, its not all that pretty. But for some damn reason, I kinda like it. It has grown on me. I usually get tired within a year or less. I have no intention to get rid of this one. I hate to say this, but I already called JE Pistons and dropped a line to Mellenium Tech. I'm thinking of a displacement bump this winter.

Lemme see if I can find a pic of my last motor I built....

I'm glad I'm easily satisfied. I like the V just as it (engine wise) is. I do understand the need for speed, though. I was young...back in the '70's, when real cars had chrome bumpers and six carbs.
Btw- raped ape? I don't think you can rape the willing...🤣

Yep, this (V1000) bike is pretty good. But, it would be tough to ride two up, bags full, and roll into it with 175HP.  :goggle:

I honestly have not changed in more than 40 years. My Dad beat my a$$ in 1975 for taking apart the lawn mower engine. It has gotten worse. But I have backed off a bit. Here was my last build. This really educated me as I built it from the crankshaft up. Sold it to a guy in Iowa. He was 65 years old when he bought it from me. He was 6.2, 215lbs. Very good shape. He ran a 9.28 with it. Probably low 190's in HP.

I mentioned this before. If anyone wants to get together in my neck of the woods, Ill show you this ECU stuff.
