Picked this up a few months ago, took my time on gettin parts to turn her back into a trike!! The conversion actually handles pretty good...but I love 3 wheels!!

if you see this in your mirror its because its about to lap you LOL
KnN are already in. The cams I'm unsure of because I like the mid-range character the engine has which is why I'd love to meet some one who has gone big bore! Gas flow and higher compression is a good route along with better spark. The cams increase power at the expense of lower end grunt - but I'd love to see a dyno of yours ;-) Weight wise, the Dymags, lack or road lights, loom, standard silencers and rear sub I guess must make yours 10 - 12kg lighter and since this is off un-sprung weight and the rear of the bike the handling will make the most of this. I'm looking forward to stripping mine back and improving the suspension. My track riding is good enough to keep up with inters, but the weakest link on my bike is still the pink blob on top of the bike! I need to brake much later, corner speed is good, getting on the power and overtaking when given the chance, but I still brake like a road rider!!
hey presto , 1 dyno print out , this is my stage 1 bike ( I havnt dyno`d the stage 2 nor will I ) all standard gearing .
So the next question is, what performance mods make up the stage 1? 118bhp at the wheel is a good gain over standard :-)
