I'm hoping this will be produced in mass numbers eventually. The only fully balanced large capacity 360° parallel twin in the world and made by a tiny crew as their passion. Looks like a proper bike !
Nice bike. I wonder what the price tag is - 150K USD?I'm hoping this will be produced in mass numbers eventually. The only fully balanced large capacity 360° parallel twin in the world and made by a tiny crew as their passion. Looks like a proper bike !
Ohlins front and rear.Where’s the Ohlins going, front or rear ?
I put longer Ohlins on the rear of my Dyna S and they’re great! The thing was way too low as stock, then of course there’s the infinitely superior performance. Haven’t done the forks as they seem quite good, for my riding at least.
You‘re a bad man. Got me looking at 117” kits again…!
The screaming Eagle 131 is a big bore kit. From what I see and read, the cylinders are thin. I know tons of people use the 131 SE kit and Harley warranties it. But with the S&S 128 the cylinders are thicker. S&S uses a stroker crank that’s modified and improved over stock to get the 131.Why ?
I reckon the best non Norton and it is the best bike I`ve ever ridden is the Aprilia Tuono 1000 V twin . Buy one new and it has everything ................... , braided hoses , hugger etc , unlike some ...........Triumph . I bought a gen 1 factory first (2007 ) but all the tech is wasted on me . I bought a gen 2 and then sold the factory , i still have it and a second one .
On the M8 a cam only swap makes huge gains. And honestly for myself that’s probably all I should really do. Part of me wants to go deep and do a big bore kit (S&S 128) with ported heads, cam, etc.That’s good info Scott, thanks.
Funnily enough, I got to that same question about mine, how much would a cam and head work get if set up properly without going for the bigger bore. Think I might look deeper into that question now.
Lol. If I pull the heads off, I may as well do the bore kit.Obviously you should just do the cam and a bit of head work etc.
Obviously you will build a 128” tarmac shreader!!
Going by the adage, a change is as good as a rest and spurred on by the middle grandkid, the 7 is back on the road and what a blast! All youngans carefully taken for a spin, literally, after a shakedown, all is well. Ok it has 4 wheels but not much else, most fun dressed for years!Yeah… for about the next 5 minutes
