450w. I had a 400w system in. Rotor failed, he sent me a 450w Rotor par accidente, so I said effthat send me a 450w stator! Here I am trying to squeeze evry last drop out of a 400w? gimme 50more! And some brushes with a ring terminal on it! And he did. I am a 450watter now. Vee shalt zee.

ANd also, every single terminal I could reach got cleaned and greased, so the whole thing is as good as I can feasibly get it with my meager skills. I dun it myself.

heh, and make sure to take em in the right dosages, too

I rememebr working a couple of Dead shows at the Meadowlands, back when Jerry was still around. Was a contact buzz just trying to get out to the mix position, and haha, getting into the upper tiers to run spotlight was totally surreal. Music? what music?

GoPro camera and a chest mount, and I think it was taking pics at 5 sec intervals. Dans a handsome fella, aint he? And the dogs are a big help, specially the big yellow one.


ALSO picked up a 12mm hex key socket from my favorite local hardware store. THese guys have been in business forever, I mean ferEvah: http://www.davieshardware.com/

This is probably going to come out wrong, but NICE PLUMBER'S CRACK @ 1:49.

I had to slow it down, it was watchable but you had absolutely no idea what was going on :haha


I still have no idea what was going on...we did everything to it except beat it with DaisyDog's stick!

I am aggravated by the loudness of the right hand side ticking due to rocker arm lash. Bike runs ok.. I'm a little bit not too sure - would love if one of you airhead guys would come over and give me some perspective on if my bike is running all right with good power and response and everything (yes, thats an invite to come ride my bike, I think I am now blinded by the power of hte G450 )
Regardless, I was looking up new rocker shims and whatnot, and came across that little confusing tidbit above.

What makes the 0.35 shim so expensive?

If it won't leave an 1150GS standing, it's too slow and you need more motor.





You asked.

I will try that


Holy frijoles I just realized... I never retimed the thing after installing the latest ME ignition map. I had a second gen edition... dated '09 or something.
