Huge thanks to Gil and Sue at Razee for getting me my new bike!

- - - Updated - - -

So Saturday morning was break in day and Woodcraft day...

First I brought it down to John at Dyno solutions for a Motorman style break in Break In Secrets--How To Break In New Motorcycle and Car Engines For More Power
If you don't think its worth it to follow his procedure, just look at the oil after only 45 miles on the dyno!



Kinda pretty, shame to tear her apart


I forgot to take picture of the chart but bone stock with just the 180/60 race tire it put down 110hp, just 2 less than my 05 and has a seriously better low to mid range. My thought is after just a de-restriction and 09+ velocity stacks it will put down more than my 2005 did

Then I had all these goodies to install! HUGE thanks to Woodcraft!




Sunday morning was Spiegler / CL day doing the brakes
I installed CL60 Pads in front RX3s in the rear. Spiegler Rennsport front line and rear lines...
Fortunately knock on wood Ive only hit one hiccup so far in my build. Rennsport is a single MC banjo and I forgot to order the proper fine thread banjo.. oops



I also got all the safety wire drilling done except of the caliper bolts, the Mad Scientist will save me that headache

Excuse me while I go wipe the drool off my desk....


Looks great, keep taking pictures!

Question about the oil. I've read the break in secrets stuff, but what exactly are you pointing out in the oil? Shavings, or lack of? At 45 miles I wouldn't expect to see much of anything, so I'm just curious.

Nice build. Only thing instead of the servo buddy, you can just have your ecu flashed that will give you way more expansion options during your build that will end up saving you money. Also, I have both the WPS battery and Shorai. I find both of them to be equivalent, with an advantage to the WPS because of features and price.

Yeah I didnt think of that when I wrote up the list, actually a left over / reusable part from my 05. But yes I will be flashing it to eliminate that

So todays work

I got around to installing Woodcraft Stator cover and Key Eliminator harness..





As usual Woodcraft stuff fit perfectly and is ready to go!

After that I took care of the intake side of things, installing block off plates



Swapped out my velocity stacks for 09+


Then on to the air box in my usual fashion if you know me I love race farkle so I wrapped the box in DEI Gold Heat Delfect because if you cant go fast you gotta look cool


Dropped in a BMC Race filter

And that wrapped up the intake side of things

Then I pulled my rear shock out and swapped in a Ktech DDS Pro curtesy of Advanced Traction


And thats about it for now.. I pulled the factory exhaust off in preparation of a Hindle Full exhaust system from Woodcraft. Cant wait to weight the OE vs. the Hindle

Still to do are Front Forks, Bazzaz, GRP, Gearing / Chain, and paint my Armour Bodies

Minor update...

Stop by The Mad Scientist Moto's laboratory today and picked up some Levers and Titanium Pre-Drilled Bolts. I've been using his levers for 5-6 years now with zero complaints. And his Ti pre-drilled bolts are awesome. www.MadScientistMoto.com

Why did you change your '15 intake funnels for ones from a '09. Is it '09-'12, or just '09? I am running the BMC & Ivan's block off plates; and the Skutrnet Servo Buddy, as well.

Thanks in advance.

My understanding is by changing the airflow it alters the power delivery to better in the higher RPMs.

Is it all four trumpets, or just 2-inside/2-outside? Again, thanks for the input & time.

Cheers
