14k. No oil use. Gas mileage pretty much the same as stock when I ride conservatively, which is almost never.

With the highway gearing (procycle), it just hums along getting about 45 to 47 mpg on a calm day.

I have had it over 100 mph several times. Don't know where the top is. Don't want the ticket unless I have a really good reason.

I think I dropped mine a dozen times in one outing. It sure gets heavy as the day gets long.

Awesome. Thanks for your experiences. I am really considering it. Especially since the bike still stays light but gains all the power. How do you find vibration? The stock Dr doesn't vibrate enough for me to notice except when I think to myself how little it vibrates for a single

MAD can give a direct observation, but I believe the concensus is the vibrations are the same or maybe even less than stock.

Make sure to check out the 790 build / review thread here sone were on advrider and make sure u gap the rings!

I have read that sad build report.. felt bad for him. I will definitely be anal about ring gap.

To be honest, I feel it should be mentioned in the instructions. I would have done the same thing had I not rebuilt vw motors before

Just as a clarification. The gap specs are included with the rings. The OP in that thread "skipped over" that step. It all turned out OK and the OP learned an important new thing about building a motor.

I'm having an issue with my forks that I need to address. I have the upgraded progressive springs and intiminators. When I brake, I'll pull the front brakes and it will start to slow down, then the forks will compress an inch to 1.5". When I stop, the forks will stay compressed then when I start to go, they will fully extend again.

I have the stock amount of 5w oil. There is 3/4" of preload. I don't think I can get much more preload In there, that was even tough to do.

Anything I should look at first?

Deja vu:
On some Intiminators, the ring gap is too small and the units bind in the fork tube.

I really seem to have an issue with Ring gaps

Has this issue happened to you?
