xq89olp,

Can you send me a photo or post a photo here and I can tell you staightaway.

If it is 18 months then they would be part of the original batches that I had.

Here they are. Let me know what you think. If they are from the batch that was cracking what do you think we can do? I got them from PowerFRK. I don't know if it would be better going through them or you directly. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Sorry about the poor pic quality, iPhone pics.

SC,

sent you an email today.

I will have a new batch in 2 weeks. I cut the order in half to get it done quicker.

Zigo,

Yes one of the five sets is yours.

I am hoping they arrive by snail mail today.

I will have them express post the next batch to me.

I have the sprockets in stock now.

The following from a new customer after install.

Lennie,

It was dry today so I took a 100km ride under varying road conditions. I did the feel the improvement in the low end torque, although the difference is not night and day but I readily appreciated the improvement. I used to have a flat spot in the 4000-5500 rpm range which is no longer there. There used to be a "kick" past 5500 rpm. It's smoother now. The exhaust popping on decceleration was significantly reduced. The "torque curve" is now a nicer, constant curve if one is to draw a graph on it.

I did not get the chance to test the top end as I don't really care for it. What matters is the extra grunt I now get from the low rpm range. The engine is now more relaxed as up-shifting even in low rpms does not cause the engine to labor as much. I did notice that overtaking even on 5th or 6th gear is more effortless. My kind of performance :-)

Just for my info, I have a few questions:

1. Why do you think I have less exhaust popping now? Do the sprockets have anything to do with altering the air/fuel mixture conditions?
2. I believe the crank angle had been modified by the new sprockets. By how many degrees advanced?
3. Has a bike ever been dyno'd with and without the sprockets? If you have before-and-after torque charts, I'd like to see them.

Thanks. You have a very good product.

Regards,

Rico

Zigo,

Did you complete the install and ride the bike yet?

Do you install the right side without rotating the engine (leaving it in the same place where the left side was done) or rotate the engine to TDC for the right side?

As far as cost with or without labour, a customer in the UK installed a set in his S and found that fuel consumption improved so much thaey almost paid for themselves in a1920 mile trip from John O'Groats to Lands End.

All feedback is that you run one gear higher with the torque curve and thus save fuel.

If you are mechanically capable they are easy to get installed once you get the retaining bolts loose.

I recommend doing one side at a time and rotate the engine fully then reset the other side to top dead center and install.

Sprockets are in and the bike is running fine. It was 24 here so my test ride was short.
Not aiming criticisms anywhere but it seems to me that the instructions could have been more in depth.
I had a small problem when the new sprocket shifted it's postion in relationship to the cam when I was torqueing the new sprocket. Fixing the problem was an easy fix but I just wish I had had the advice at hand in one easy to find spot.
It seems to be a fine product and I thank you Lennie.
