Do you think the mods you have made to the cowl and the rear runner have helped your cooling, and are the front dampers the Rich Presley/ Frank Sanderson ones, they look nice and smaller that I thought they would .
Top bike by the way,

How do you rate those Rich Presley dampers?
Life shouldn't be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty, well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, loudly proclaiming: "WOW, WHAT A RIDE"

There can be no downsidw to it, I have seen racing Lambrettas with similar scoops fitted to there bikes, so I think it is an advantage, with the power outputs of tuned engines nowadays, any extra cooling has to be an advantage due to the extra heat created, I will let you know when I have been on a good run with it, and let you know if the EGT has dropped from previous runs.

By the way it was a simple modification I used an old cylinder cowling and cut it up to fit onto the flywheel cover.

A little hard on the damping to start with but , I adjusted the damping lower than the standard settings, (which is very simple to do) and they work very well a good feeling on the front giving more confidence when cornering and braking.

A very very tidy example. I like the seat, does it lift or has it got a cut out for the juice?

Cheers

REALLY fantastic scooter. Like the front brake caliper - not seen that one before. What was the Dyno figure ?
