Here's the finished article  :o

Went to Meet-up meeting, let one of the guys with 360 take it 'round the block' ;D
 He was pretty impressed with extra power a 2mm overbore gives and, it isn't as uncomfortable as it looks  8)
 Then, couple of us went for a ride, 61.2 total miles
 Exactly as expected, doesn't work too well until around 65mph.and, at 70 things smooth out real well and the wind provides enough 'lift' to make life comfortable. ;)
 Vibrates like crazy at 55 in top gear (6th) so 4th is a better option  ::)
 didn't get flat out, buffeting from headlight/helmet was causing double vision at 97? (probably a bit of a headwind, felt like 150? ;D )
 Anyway, here's what I found after first ride.
1. in top gear, vibration at 55 sucks
2. Seat is way more comfortable than it looks
3. Angle of bars is wrong for me, need swinging back and tilting down at steeper angle (I though it would be an issue)
4. Brake pedal needs finishing off and top edge needs rounding
5. Drive chain needs adjusting (new chain, bedded in a bit  ;) )
6. Really REALLY need better tyres,very easy to go almost 3 times posted limit on a few curves (posted limit is unrealistically low for radius of turn) didn't slide or anything, just could have gone round 4~5 times posted limit  with better grip (maybe I should keep the old, hard tyres? slows me down a bit ;D )

  When we got back I let Brendon take it 'round the block'

 Exhaust sounds really good, reminds me of a 500 Triumph, even at high rpm (you don't really 'hear' exhaust until someone else rides it)
 He was very surprised with power compared to his 360  8) also, now thinks rear-sets aint such a bad idea  ;D

   Motor has done a couple of dyno runs but it's the first 'real' mileage, compression is getting better as rings bed in properly, I think it's going to be a quick little motor, stock carbs and all.
 I'll pull plugs later and see how far out overall carburation is, I know it's slightly lean at idle but I haven't adjusted mixture screws yet
 Given me a hell of an incentive to get the 'race' motor finished and built

Nice looking scoot PJ, glad to hear it's up and rippin' round!
How's the claw in all this? Any headway?

had a great ride today, kinda weird though PJ was pretty much behind me the entire day... Getting a big head , thinking my bike is just as fast as his 380?? nah! All hype, and then I got humbled like a bird shitting on my head! His bike is definitely above mine, after riding it and thinking holy sh$# this things fast (and that was at half throttle :o )
 
 
....I now need to do more work to mine, which will probably piss PJ off because he will be the one helping me ;D ;D ;D , LOL
 
Next up LEDs, CAFE Seat, new bars, carb overhaul, etc... Cant wait!!! 8)
Good things may come to those who wait, but only what's left by those who hustle...

Didn't take any video this week.
 I still have over an hour from ride to Cocoa Beach two weeks ago from Mods&Rockers.
I'm going to have to learn how to edit out the really boring bits ;D
 Something I forgot to mention earlier, seat needs moving forward a bit and looks pretty bad up close (but I did make it in a heck of rush, my excuse and I'm sticking to it  ;) )
 Found out why wiring was all over the place, cat thinks its a play toy (real funny to watch)
 There is a local road with a really good series of bends strung together, problem is, unmarked police cars patrol it.
 Really only know because it was chasing someone in the opposite direction this afternoon with ALL the flashing lights going mad  8)
Maybe I'll do both directions a few of times?
