Damn this MW8

So yesterday afternoon I hit the 500 mark for my break in period. So I got to play a little with it. And all I have to say is.... if you haven't rode a broken 107 you need to. Torque for days. Also this Rushmore handles like a dream compared to my 06 road glide I had previously.

I felt the same way when I hit the 500. It was hard to hold back while the father in law play on his.

I took my buddies M8 out the other day and he added the Torque cam. It pulls and pulls and is so smooth!
However I didnt like the hydraulic clutch. ALmost dropped his new bike in my driveway! it didnt release until the very end. He ended up taking it to dealer, and they spent 2.5 hours trying to get the clutch right, and said they hadnt felt one that off. So im glad i almost dropped his bike! lol!

I have stage 2 with the torque cam, I rode the bike about 300 miles before the cam. I really liked the 107 without the cam, absolutely love it with the cam.

I bought my my '17 107 April 8th, have 2500 miles on it.....so you could say I like it a little. Fuel Moto header is being delivered today along with a programmer and am now thinking a cam.

Not sure what they spent 2.5 hours doing unless they just kept bleeding the fluid because there is no adjustment to a hydraulic clutch. There is a release plate movement spec of .086" and you have to bleed the system as many times as it takes to get that minimum spec but that would have no noticeable affect on the clutch lever itself. It'll be interesting to see if they make any difference in the lever. ALL hydraulic clutches disengage further out from the grip than most of us would like them to.

What can I say. I have the perks of being a single parent. as the finances allow either going that way or maybe turbo.

I don't own an M8 but I was very impressed with these numbers posted by Cyclerama on an M8 they just did.
Cyclerama Head work
D&D 2 into 1 exhaust

They said they had there was a software glitch so the bike would not go over 107 mph on the dyno.
