can't stand watching some vids where camera angle is so low that one sees only a couple feet in front of wheel - just too disturbing to not see the road ahead

Yeah I agree with you on that one for sure, I like it when its an all the way up the road camera shot and maybe even a little side to side so I can see some of the other surroundings, another thing that bothers me is when some one puts a loud bunch of music in the vid and you can hardly if any at all hear the engine, a little music in the background is OK if its the right type but Id rather here the engine screaming and the rider talking a bit about the bike or the surroundings of where the ride is being done at, that makes it fun and interesting to me.

Just ordered a Dax balanced lower and the upper kit with a high comp head today. Hopefully I can get it all together before the first snowflakes start falling! I guess I'm officially an addict because my first bike has less than 90 miles on it lol. Thanks guys.......
Dan.

I can surely say that Sick Bike Parts delivers what they say.....only took 3 days to get my complete order. Installed the new expansion chamber this evening. Seems like a touch more power than my homemade Frankenstein exhaust ---- it's certainly quieter!!

I've still got to get another brake caliper for the rear so I can utilize the dual pull handle that I also got. I'll save that for a different day! I also need to grind off the hanger bracket that ended up on the wrong side for my install....again, another day.

Pipe looks good, I know mine pulls the hills much better with the expansion pipe, if that silicone tubing ever burns out, you can set the pipe up with out any silicone hose like I did mine just using copper tubing fittings, nothing to ever burn out.

I had to cut that tab off mine also, rubbed on nside of my leg when I pedaled the bike.

Talking Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

I figured out how to improve the Jag Clone, I'm work on it to incorporates two coils.
Next will be the twin spark plugs head from Fred . Advance the timing curve to Rev even Higher . By extending the time curve, it will also extend the powerband pull .
Just imagine a the Ultimate Tunable High Performance CDI With a HD Twin Fire Coil.
35,000 volts traveling threw (Blue of course) MSD Racing Wires, to the NGK Racing Plugs

that

Snuggled into RCMachine's 5.3cc Twin Sparkplug Head.
