Okay, almost 250 miles now, and runs great!!! Received my custom timing cover from Tim the Grim and it looks awesome.




I think I'm pretty much done!

I guess she's officially "broken in" now!


Runs fantastic, no leaks, pings, or obvious performance issues, should be good for many more miles. Thank you, Hammer Performance!

Changed engine oil and filter as well as primary oil so she's ready to go. This has really changed the character of my bike.
