Booked in to YPE

Post by Kaiser on Mon 01 Feb 2010, 14:06

The Blade is heading in to YPE on 8th/9th Feb to have the Akra full system fitted, the PC fitted and mapped. This will add to the flapper mod & the BMC filter.
I'm gony be scared to ride the thing once I get it back

So there's that, cosmetics I have fitted my Fabbri DB, headlight protectors (dark), Phillips Extreme Bulbs, flush indicators & resisters, reservior covers, HRC rear cowel and once I get the bike back I'll be buying an R&G tail tidy & crash protectors.

Kept meaning to get R&G's but never got round to it, plus I think the fairing needs cut so need to find someone to fit, I'm not too handy that way lol

Should be, probably too fast

Cutting fairings is a doddle. All you need to do is use a hole saw, cutting from the painted side, gently. I did a how to donkeys ago, but dunno if it's on this forum.

K, after spending so much will we now get a picture of your bike?

Add a radiator guard too mate, it'll save you mega bucks if a stone makes a beeline for your radiator.

I dropped my blade off at YPE yesterday, he's working on it today so will see what happens. He suggested leaving the BMC off & seeing what he gets before taking my dosh for the filter. He suggested that through experience he only really see's a max of 2hp if any diff at all.

I'll see what the results are and how I feel on the bike. I don't want to get to the satage that I have too much power, it's fast enough, "for me" as it was, a little extra I can live with

He is going to sort the throttle response, I always felt it was a little jurking when engaging.

Can't wait 170hp at the wheel would be ample

Bloody hell! "170bhp would be ample"? Razz

I was chuffed to get over 123 on a heavier bike. I really am seriously out of touch aren't I? Laughing

Look forward to seeing your results Kaiser... and pics!

I am itching to find out, almost want to phone him now

For me the bike was fast enough as it was, a little more should be fine but I'm not going to start chasing a few HP.

Still had confidence issues with that blooming front when I was out last, although it was wet.

Didn't you want to watch it on the dyno? I hung around for mine because I was keen to watch (and hear) it on the dyno having it's neck properly wrung.

I can only dream what another 50% of power would be like. Razz

eerrr i think thats a touch on the highside. affraid
Most of the blades are between 150 and 155.

One i remember had 165, that had a full arrow wsb system (dont ask how much that was).

Another one fitted with hrc cams and ecu, blueprinted, that had 185.

Generally considered to be between 10bhp and 15bhp I think.

Interestingly lubing my chain gained me 1bhp and Willie reckoned it would have been 2bhp if not for having a Scottoiler fitted.
