CUSTOMERS COMMENTS


Well, I've done almost 700 miles in 2 days with the New MT and my thoughts so far are . . . . . worra weapon !
Steve at http://www.v-twinservices.co.uk has done a truly fantastic job  
The engine is so well done that you wouldn't think that anything had been done . . 
The power / engine behaviour is absolutely faultless. there are no 'holes' or instability or hunting or hesitation or anything.
it actually runs smoother than the last MT I had.
I'm astounded at how 'nice' it is.

Steve finished all the work http://www.v-twinservices.co.uk/project5/index.html having been held up by a few recalcitrant vendors for longer than he wanted and let me know when bike was finished.
The updates and communication throughout from steve have been fantastic.
His workmanship is something to behold, you would never know that anyone had been inside the engine. there is not one marked surface, there is not one marked allen bolt. brilliant.
I flew down and met up with him (he was kind enough to pick me up from the airport) took me back to the workshop, proffered a cuppa then we went for a run.
Three things sprang to mind on the run;
1) This bike is phenomenal
2) The roads round here are gash
3) Harleys are noisy buggers (Steve was leading on a hawg, I had to slow down and wait for his overtakes, but that's a different story)

So, final numbers (although I'm more into what it 'feels' like than numbers on pieces of paper)
Top BHP on the dyno was 107 bhp running 93 octane gas with exup valve in place, baffles in, and cats in.
Steve had suspicions of 'pinking' and dialled in more gas which took the numbers down to 103 bhp.
Hopefully Steve can post up the dyno chart, you have never seen anything closer to a 'textbook' chart in your life
the tourqe line is flatter than Kate Moss's chest.
the BHP is as linear as you could imagine.
The bike 'feels' lively, and enthusiastic. like it's looking for the next straight to attack.

Me being a typical 'oik' have put the bike on high octane gas and pulled the baffles  
This years Akra system - baffles sounds brilliant, not at all like a transit with a burst exhaust.
And at tickover (exup is still in) it's as quiet as with the baffles in.

I'm absolutely delighted and looking forwards to putting more miles on it and meeting some of you guys now that I am once again a fully 'paid up' MT owner (again)
