    Brazilian Motorcycle Cops Helmet cams catching the bad guys!

    I usually watch videos of bikes getting away from the cops. This is from the police POV: Part 1. Part 2. Video quality is not great, but I found these enjoyable to watch.

    Cams, who has 'em?

    Need advice or observations. Who here is running cams bigger than stock? With Mikuni carbs? And with Vboost eliminated (stage 7) or open all the time. Reason I ask is because I got the bike running really good at this point but no matter what I've done I can't get a happy idle that is pop...

    I don't mean lift or duration. I mean adjustment or clearance wise. I ran a compression check on my 89 several months ago. The cylinders measured 220-230 (My 94 was 150-160) with basically no leak down from that. Then I did all the wiring upgrades on the 89 to have a better hot start. That...

    High Comp Piston, Big Cams and Dyna Ign???

    Hey guys, I have a 1300 conv by Sean. We have the ported heads, 12:1 pistons with stage 3 cams. Thing already runs like a raped ape, but I miss the advance I had with my Dyna. I dont thrash the bike, just use it as my daily driver. So do you all think it would be safe to put the Dyna back...
