Well, taking it easy during break-in, so far it's one gears difference.
As in cruising at 60 in 5th instead of 4th.

Finished the conversion of my rear wheel to a cast wheel with separate sprocket and Wilwood disc brake. Did all the fab & machining myself.
Love the little cart I made from an old engine stand.
Threw on the front end and risers to see how I want the tank to lay.
Making some progress...A little here & there.

Discovered that I still need to use less gas, so I ordered a smaller needle jet.

Might finally get this thing sorted out one of these days.
