An update on the machines performance or the lack there of.

Small update has been touched since the bike became rideable. Ive made the light housing vvaterproof and some other stuff.

Bike is good for riding up to 140-150 gps km/hour. That vvould be vvith an full tank. VVhen tank gets to the last 10-30% it can only perform 100-110 km/hour. VVhen i grab an fistful of throttle the bike stalls completely. Engine runs, but i think the fueling cant keep up. The above state it pretty vvell. Im certainly no vvay near the HP the RC8R perform.

This made me think about the external fuel pump option again. Though i may be able to put in the RC8 pump in the Safaris. Though if going for the external, ive lost count of hovv much pressure the RC8R EFI bridge needs. There are a lot of options for upgrading the pump. But im a bid lost.

Hope all are having fun vvith there rides out there.
