    The only way to get to the vacinity of 50hp is to insatll the 469cc kit big bore cylinder work. They're around $800 give and take (just for parts).

    Um no. If you go much bigger than 434cc on the cylinder you will have gasket issues among other things. 50 hp can be done fairly easy but it.s not just bore.

    Mine is 55+ depending on the dyno (the base version ran 47-48 on C12). But that is also stroked to get the 469....and cammed, and ported with o/s valves, and carbed and piped.......:clap

    There's an o-ring/gasket sitting between the casing (of w/p) and engine if there's where the leak u might only need a gasket part # : <TABLE id=parts_table class="table table-striped"><TBODY><TR id=p_554506><TD class=num_cel>17435-29F00 </TD><TD class=pri_cel>$8.32 <TD class=req_cel></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

    Sounds like you "cooked" your battery. The battery when charged will have the water (electrolyte) evaporate and leave the poor thing dead.

    I put a wtb thread in the flea market and got a carb with 500 miles on it with a stage one Dyno Jet kit for $50 shipped if I remember correctly. Back when I was looking for a bsr it looked like about $25-$50 was the normal going rate.

    has any one tried the sw mototech panier mounts? I have a set of Zega bags and one is wider than the other. SW's racks look to accommodate a narrow bag on the non exhaust side and they look bulletproof too.

    Sanjoh...... At least try a 25 pilot jet and a Keintech Extended fuel screw set at about 2.5 turns. And work with the needle clip or space it. This alone makes a BSR 36 work better off bottom. There is no substitute for the blue JD needle though eventually. It is specially machined and the R&D on it is $$$$. But it works.

    If it's leaking it is probably just the o ring around the seat. That's what it had been 90% of the time on my bike and my friends. You can buy a viton o ring kit for $10 at the parts store that will have the needed size. One time I had a clogged gas cap vent cause the problem to but that was on the stock e gas cap.

    I bought a project box from Fry's Electronics made from aluminum. I took my Striker with me to make sure it'll fit snugg inside the box. Once i decided where it should be located i made my mesurements upon that, and build 2 small brackets, slitly curved,

    Almost the final product, i still have to connect the wires and speedo cable tonight, and testing it in rough terrains later on is critical.

    I am starting my Trailtech Vapor install and was wondering how you guys installed the magnetic pickup on your bike, no sense in reinventing the wheel so to speak. Looking for pictures of the sensor down on the wheel.

    Thanks

    Hey, what "caliber" is your key? Looks like a .45, but the case appears to be stepped. My friend and I are trying to figure it out.
