Thanks, who knows, I may get worried and add a cage to it once I see how she goes.

I am sure, it will take me waaay longer to get the right set up than it did to build her up, change her and build her up again:)

Well, the roof is right on the ignition cables so I was wondering if anyone knows as to the whereabouts of where most of the heat dissipates out of these motors.

I am rough on my rides, so I will definitely need to mod up 2 bars coming from the wing holes (maybe) so that they can go over the heads. In a rollover I am not too scared of the pipes getting nicked, but I cannot afford to nick the heads and mess with there cooling properties.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Looking good Manny. Im jealous as that's the vision I had for my onroad. IMO I run mostly on road and I don't flip unless I try to do a sharp turn going well over 50-60 MPH. I agree with Dave on the nerf bars. As for gearing options, what are you trying to achieve? The last time I clocked my on road, I hit 67mph in 300 ft with a bsw 2 speed 19/55 & 23/51. This was with a obr 29.5 fullmod LR. Btw. Where did you get that wheelie bar? I've been trying to find one myself.

Thanks for this Rino, I actually am using option 3 of your list. The obstacle I encounter with it that it does not play nice with the Swiss Iow roof. If you have it and use the roof you will see, I will try to post a picture tomorrow. Heck, maybe I just cut the stock rollbar at the wrong angle for it.

For these setups, I always envisioned something like what the FG Marder has where it comes straight down right after the cylinder.

Between alot of us here, I am sure we will figure it out!

Thanks Ant,

I am just looking to achieve pure tarmac fun with the ride. I intend to use it in big parking lots and at the FB drag spot and airport strip. Thanks for the heads up on the gearing. I have from 21/53 and up to play with and will be running a single speed. If I ever do take it out for a speed run, it will definitely be with the cage on.

The wheelie bar is from CC Racing, a second edition of it. It is good, but I am awaiting a Buddy of mine to make one, after that I will let you know if I part it out!

Ha ha! You ARE right about me being lazy but to be honest, I have rolled over my B with the Bartolone Torpedo single pipe and walked over all scared to find that nothing happened to the pipe. So really, I am more concerned about the heads as they there to cool and I want to preserve that. But at the end of the day, I am mad impulsive & get trigger happy at the blink of an eye. And that's when crap happend:innocent:

Hey, so trying out a different rollbar application, bad pictures, I know, but I get about a 1/2 inch separation now and much more cooling.







Getting great advice from forums here so keep it coming!
