I was hoping to move onto making big power with the next amount of time I have but getting that power to the wheel without breaking the mounts or worse has to come first. I am anxious to get the power I need for Bonneville at least in the test stages but I can't complain, this bike has developed pretty quickly. It was accelerating hard enough at 46 to break the motor mount so I am probably in the right track.
you sure you dont mean vibrating hard enough at 46mph to break the rear!!

just goofing with ya, if you ever had one of the older engine with really bad vibes youd know what I mean....
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
