    10 hour road trip to pick the 'thing' up. Dave got some more dyno work in and we are final set up 80hp-50ft/flb well actually 79/49 but I can round up!
    Edit... @Welshman it was 103kg without the pipes.
    It starts really easy, revs really crisp and responsive, sounds fu#king awesome. It's back on the bench now for finishing,
    Minor oil leak on rev counter cable blank, pespex clutch cover.
    Minor water leak on one hose, clamp just too big.
    Electrics need finishing-wiring tidied, fuse box, brake light etc.
    Rear brake is (as pointed out) crap, new lever on it's way.
    Side boards fitted.
    quite a few finishing bit's and bobs, hope to road test next week.

    Really pleased it survived the dyno, used 15 litres of fuel, so if it didn't let go with that stress it should be good with me panicking on top of it.
    Here's the numbers :clap

    Don't think I have ridden anything with that horsepower to weight ratio. Should the seat be in front of the handle bars?

    That is wild, makes me want another 2t.

    It sounds purdier… when I got it home one of my more car enthusiast friends was waiting. Now dyno Dave never used the tank just a bottle but I had a feeling two float bowls may still be there. Fired it up first kick, I swear he jumped a foot in the air...... :eekers

    Ride like Kevin. (see photo above)

    A finger or two alllwwwwaayssss on the clutch lever..

    Two fold reasoning.....

    One to keep the front end down.

    Second is for when the engine seizes and locks the rear wheel...

    Obviously this bike is super awesome, but just seeing that picture and the dyno sheet, that thing would terrify me to ride.

    Don't worry it's in safe mode again...! I think it will be a little lively but then that's why we ride the things right?
    The leak on the clutch window caused by leaving out the o ring :doh
    Been through it, quite a lot to do but got to order more Ti bolts :D
    Also ordered an RF ID ignition switch, I did have some one making one but dragging heels so as Dave was under budget I can get one.
