Re: Twin spark plug cylinder head.

Aprillia did testing with their gp bikes a few years ago, playing around with bigger radiators etc. they found the cooler things ran the more horsepower it made.

They ended up with radiators so big it ran at 50'C at full race temp

That was on simoncelli's championship winning bike

Re: New Big Block Gran Turismo Kit 200-245cc

Hi rich, I haven't been on for a while so I've missed a few developments... Are you saying this won't work with a varitronic? I'm keen to put one in my series 1 which has a 61mm crank with 115 rod. Are there no low crown pistons at all?

Re: BGM stator problems

Wouldn't it be easier to check the bgm stator first????
