Default Re: Twin Carb Softtail

My 4th crank has a brass big end and havn't tried it yet, but am tempted to swap it in to these cases, to see if it's any better, otherwise thought of taking the GT5 crank in to get balanced? Still the shift kit is happiest at lower revs so might just detune her with a new piston and a spare stock '38mm' barrel I have here. With the gears she cruises at low revs and climbs anything, so may not be chasing revs on this motor?
My 9500 Rpm motor is an old Rocksolid crank, and after lightening the piston I lifted the Vibration point from just above 8500 RPM to just above 9000. So I don't do 9500 on her to often! and have been thinking of adding an inch or so to the header to bring my powerband down a 1000 RPM or so.
But this bike I just wan't to put around on, It don't have the same cornering 'feel' as my others.
