haha. I actually went out last night at midnight to tune it. Still sweating.

If it looks stupid but it works, it ain't stupid.

Hey guys. So the summer heat has gone but its been raining here on and off for about 2 months now. Very rarely get a chance to take the bike out in dry weather.

Ive recently bought and installed some Brock's Performance heavy duty clutch springs. They are A LOT stiffer than stock. I put all 6 in, even though 3 or 4 wouldve been fine. The clutch lever is painful to use but thats not really something I care about.

I also got a proper liquid-filled boost gauge which dampens the vibrations so I can see the damn thing. Turns out its running 6psi wastegate pressure. I was going for 7psi minimum but after riding it and experiencing the brutal speed of the thing, I think I might leave it 6. Its not like you can go full throttle until 3rd gear/160kph and its a street bike so theres not much point in having more power (wow what have I become? haha). On second thought I might turn it up in winter. XD

Here's my current fuel consumption. 113km/70mi to a tank. Turns out a turbo and E85 is not great for fuel economy. 110% worth it though.



Also it shoots flames on high rpm decel so thats pretty cool.

If it looks stupid but it works, it ain't stupid.

Just a little update... So about 5000km with this setup and all is well and good. Its been running 6psi and the tune is pretty good. Yet to take it down the quarter. New headlight and painted it all black. Also Im not sure if I mentioned this but I set the crank sensor back to where it was so its at stock timing now.







ZX12 5807 and 2fat2fly like this.
