I got my screwed up stage IV back!

I picked it up yesterday but it was to late to try it out so the bike is still in the trailer. The bike starts and sounds better so I am going to put the hard lowers on and give it a run today. The builder wants around a 1,000 miles on the bike before doing a full dyno tune with power pulls, they put the bike on the dyno and put 41 miles on the bike, the only thing I can't figure out is he said he put the rev limiter back down to 5800rpm which I don't mind during the break in period but I am going to tell him to set it back to 6500rpm when he does the final dyno tune. My new exhaust from Drago's was shipped on Thursday so by the time I get enough miles on the bike to do the final dyno tune I will have the new Dragula on. Hopefully the bike is done right but just to make sure I will do a compression test on the bike after I rack up a few miles.

I hope they got you straightened out this time, I know youve been through hell with the build. Atleast the bike sounds better, hopefully runs better too. The dragula addition cant hurt either . Good luck with it all.

I don't mind putting the miles on the bike before the dyno tune, better to take some time and break it in right and I am waiting for the exhaust anyway and I want the 2 into 1 exhaust on when the final tune is done. By the way the OB said I have another 90 days of warranty on his work.

I hear ya . too bad it's not warmer weather up there for you. 1 K would go by quick in the summer.

That's all the warranty he's giving his work ? 90 days don't seem like much for an engine build on a street rider.

If the bore and hone and assembly are all done properly the rings are seated already, assuming the tune was not too far off and the motor was not overfueled (or underfueled) too bad or detonated! This 1000 mile stuff....
