Hi Acethusiasts....

Winter and snow are leaving good old Bavaria and I am finishing my ACE to start...
Here are some pics, I made couple of hours ago. What have I done in the snowy months? Ok, I waited for Santa...but I also do something, to make my Baby beautiful.
Battery is gone, and a new airfilter. New footpegs...
But look at the pics.
Have a nice day. I am listening to a favorite song of mine: "lights out" from UFO and waiting for the sun to shine.

Nice work @kevmaster. You need to get rid of the ECG next. Keep warm. I'm sitting on my back deck in shorts and no shirt @ 22c

Hi Sneikz,
here is a better pic, where you can see the battery Change. At Moment, we have also around 20degrees, but this will Change next week. Yes, the ECG pisses me a lot. I think, this will be the next step. But also, I am planning to make my driver´s licence for motorbikes this summer. I never had the wish to sit on a bike, and now....I don´t want to get off...

Hey Guys just an update, did the EGR basically straight away but just bough a new exhaust to get rid of the CAT on it because that needed to go. Loving the new exhaust looks much better.

Hi,

does anyone know who makes the exhaust system as pictured on page 34 for the Skyteam Ace?

Regards

Looks good. On the list of items to do.

Today's mods consisted of replaceing the CDI unit and "Go-fast-red" grips.

I've loaded a few pics. Note the "Go-fast-red" milk crate. Had to chase the Milko three blocks before I caught him. More evidence that RED goes faster.
While the pic may show to some that the CDI is blue, it is in fact RED with a blue tinge. Michael Bee did offer to do a "special order" and attempt to source a bespoked RED one from his suppliers. Dead set this bloke goes the extra mile! Another reason to shop local.
At best the CDI change is 5 minutes, however with prior planning and a nice day, you should be able to stretch it out to 3 or so hours plus looking time.
I'd previously moved the CDI and solenoid up under the seat when I gutted and moved the battery some time back. I used high temp/hold double sided tape to attach to the original CDI mount. It has plenty of space and gets good air flow over the cooling fins.
The verdict:
GREAT!! Smoother acceleration, no flat spots with a better torque curve. IMHO. I'm no expert, but again this little bike has proved that you can consistently made relatively inexpensive mods that improve its performance. And a huge thanks to people like Michael from Skyteam Canberra & NSW who put the hard work into sourcing, testing and fabricating the mods.

Can only agree - every change leads to an idea for for yet another!

I've got three mods under way simultaneously with no time to complete even one.

Hi Sneikz,
I am sure, the new grips will speed the bullit up. I hope, I can put on my heating tape the next days. Of Course, pics will follow.
And now, sun is shining...Gentlemen....Start your ACES..

Hi Gents,

Now that winter is coming it seems like a good time to be planning this years upgrades.

I have seen on facebook that Sky Team Canberra (Australia) sells a custom tuned and jetted carby, plug 'n' go.
Just curious if anyone has installed one and how it preforms?

Thanks
