Re: ScootRS tubeless Rims

I am using similar to the ones shown in the link, mine may have been sourced via DemonTweaks. You're quite right that they do not fit without doing some extra work to the rim and/or valve to provide the additional clearance required but I took a little off each until they did, then used silver touch...

Re: Clubman on GT186 - Ex Box?

Isn't it amazing what difference a pipe can make. Sometimes it only takes a 500rpm extension to the pipe's rev range to allow it to where the motor works in harmony with the porting or gearing, transforming performance.

Re: Mugello 240 ??

Another quick question, which I may already have missed comment on... I don't suppose that you're running an advance/retard ignition are you? I ask as this could also explain why the bike is running hot at running in revs in 4th but cools when you down-change and/or 'give it some (an advance/retard ...

Re: Mugello 240 ??

I use Mugellos, as well as Avanti and others but know others that use GT kits with zero reliability issues. Be wary of swapping one kit for another if the problem is elsewhere, otherwise you may well find the next kit does exactly the same.

Re: Imola gearing

As Holty has said, gear requirement will go hand in hand with pipe choice... and pipe choice will need to go hand in hand with how you like to ride / what you intend to use it for. Without more details it is very hard to give you any advice that would be worth listening to. An Imola with a revvy pip...

Re: Clubman on GT186 - Ex Box?

I've no experience of the TSR but TBH that rev range is quite normal, even low compared to what the Fran Race will do... but much of that goes hand in hand with the porting spec of the kit it is used on. Much of this depends on what the individual feels is excessive when out on the open road I perso...

Re: Clubman on GT186 - Ex Box?

^... soz, how easily I get off topic!!! Apply the above to the Ex Box and it'll take you somewhere between the standard spec and the upper range of BHP return (realms of expansions). I've experience of this pipe and it fits in nicely between where other clubmans hit a rev limit and those that deafen...
