Welll...you know what they say huh? (At least in Canada). Better to have your ass whooped on the dyno then on the trail....

Lots to cover!

OK, on intake splitters I am undecided. They can induce turbulence and other flow characteristics to increase fuel mixing and burn quality but also decrease overall flow area, not just by the thickness of the plate but by introducing 2 boundary layers (on top and bottom of splitter plate). I think the more modern the engine design (more downdraft ports than sidedraft) the less a splitter will help. It also goes to show why a lot of these are done on singles with a horizontal carb. The flow having to turn 90 degrees to get through the valve introduces a lot of flow compromises that a modern v engine with its largely straight ports do not experience.

On the big bore kit I have to see what the inside of the 950 looks like. The 990 superduke engine cases may be machined differenly than the 950 engine. Ducati does it with the various 7xx thru 10xx engines. I also want to make a kit that is bore only, no stroker crank needed. That would keep kit and install price down. Reboring existing cylinders is nice but if new castings are needed it is not a big problem. Will find out and let you all know.



Gregor, did you do a photoshop drop shadow curved text addition to the engine in a crate picture?

Yes, well, a little more than that but like I said... there's nothing I won't do, blah, blah, blah. That includes photoshop. Of course if we do a big bore kit I would like to suggest we incorporate that into the casting somehow and then offer it to everyone but Flanny. In fact we could offer these kits in "Flannymobile Killer Level 1" etc. I think that might prove popular.

That was a low blow Mr. Flanny. There will come a day when I will actually ride my bike again instead of just work on it endlessly. It is a difficult to imagine day, I will grant you that, but one that will come sooner than you'd like. You will know that day has come when you find your bike sand blasted down to the primer from the roost I will throw your way. Just sayin'.

That is the best concept I have heard in a dog's age!

Oh! There is no HP cure for an on-the-trail ass whooping is there?

Fortunately our shop is on the third floor so while I haven't heard anything directly I'm pretty sure it's all fine there. However a friend who has a motorcycle garage across from my old East Village apartment (and where I used to park my 950) sent me a few photos from last night...





This is near the intersection of 8th Street and Ave C so not all that near the water. Pretty amazing the devastation and when you see this and realize that it's up and down the whole coast the cost to repair/replace the homes and cars and property will be beyond staggering.

Thanks for the update and I am very thankful to hear there is no physical loss or injury! Of course, I am very sad to see the poor ponies in their stable, up to their axles in salt...

All the best to anyone affected and reading this!

So Chris is fine but the shop has been without power for the last week so everything has been on hold back there. My job that was supposed to start next week got postponed until the week after Thanksgiving so I'll be flying in on my birthday and will get my bike swapped over to the production intakes then and spend the week riding it while I'm there and then do the 41 swap the following weekend so I get a day to see what that feels like.

Sorry, I linked to his gallery and he took it down. I think I saved them in my texts so I'll update the original post. NJ was hit hardest but NYC got walloped like I've never seen - from water. Planes are another story...

Sweet plan and soon, a happy birthday! I am sure Chris has had other matters to attend to, the power outage just helped "free" him from the shop. His projects will continue, all in good time.
When do you fly to NY? Really curious to see what you can do with 41's
