Re: SSD will not run past about 4000 rpm

Ignitech installed with Bosch GT40T coils.
After a bit of hassles with wiring connections the bike is running superbly. Idles at 1000rpm like a champ and pulls cleanly to 5000rpm (running in new engine).
The unit is plug and play and has resolved all the issues I was experiencing.

Re: SSD will not run past about 4000 rpm

Having a really good look around under the tank at the wiring showed up a number of issues including partially broken wires to the coils at the connections and a bunch of other issues.

SSD will not run past about 4000 rpm

Gurus, I have an SSD with 40mm carbies. Engine idles beautifully and blips very crisply but when taking it for a ride it accelerates normally from standstil up to about 60kmh but when throttling up to speed in a 100kmh zone the bike will not pull. It struggles to get to 4000rpm and then stops accele...

Re: Sidestand hitting header

Problem solved kinda.

I took the exhaust assembly apart to start again and noticed that it has S2 stamped on the pipes. I am guessing that the S2 system is just slightly different from the Darmah.

Sidestand hitting header

Gurus,
I am rebuilding an 82 Darmah which has a Staintune exhaust fitted.
The header hits the side stand pivot point and won't retract fully.

Is there a difference in header pipes between SS and Darmah?
