Yes, there will be more bench testing & some road testing.

I have tried a few different cdi's an wasted a lot of $. The last one was recommended by a friend.was the supercharged cdi. Well it would not run my bike it just back fired.so i tried it on my other 2.same results. So i tried my friends an it would drop at 7k an the bike tested on was cr machines top motor so i no what works an don't far as cdi's. finally i tried the lightning and to my relief it worked excellent an the lightning did exactly as advertised.i have 2 other bikes an bought one for them an they perform very well also.personally i would recommend the lightning to anyone.

My daily roll is a easy 9300. This motor will let u no how good your components are because of the pm range it has.

I've been a member of this (& other) forums for many years, & over the years, we've seen many shifty vendors posting here using fake names to give fake testimonials slandering other vendors products just to sell more of their own parts!

So Roadrash, you'll have to forgive me when I say that I'm highly suspicious of a newbee member who's only been here 1 month & his only 7 posts on this entire forum are praising CR Machine & HD Lightning (who are known shifty business partners) & slandering their competitions products.

I have nothing to gain, & I firmly stand behind my test results of these other CDIs being equal to the HDL.
I'll be doing even more detailed testing (including actual riding tests) & posting the results (good or bad) here.

Fred really has nothing to do with HD Lightning except that he sells them.
Calling CR Machine shifty is out of line.

Really Neil?? You're a pretty good detective yourself when it comes to these kinds of things...

The 'newbee' doesn't seem at all suspicious to you??

I think Fred can get a little full of himself at times, but I believe he sells a good product that he makes himself. I haven't had any problems with Huffy Davidson either, but like Fred I think they can be full of themselves. It's pride, but when it comes to there products as long as they do what they say they do I won't complain. It's when people make carbon copies of others products and sell them as there own when it's crossing the line. Talking down someone else's products is just something that has sadly became the norm when it comes to advertising. Look around it's everywhere.

You might not think you've done it, but you have yourself on your facebook page when talking about the fred head in comparison to your new head

The new VMB 'Shark' heads have a squish area that is contoured to match the dome of the piston & will allow better clearance & compression.
