Gordon's dreaming!

Just an update on Gordons engine spec: the standard output is approximately 45-48bhp, but after uncles Martin and Roy at Slipstream did their magic it should be between 82-84bhp.
 

I think I will be able to feel the difference for sure!


 

It now has a Raptor crank so will spin up quicker and been bored and stroked to take the capacity from 659 to 760. All the starter gears and starter motor are gone, the water pump has been replaced by a electric one too. The clutch basket has been replaced with a 6 spring type to take the extra power. Lighter larger valves, lumpy cam and a pair of 39mm Keihin carbs all help 'pep up' the motor. A larger radiator, re-programmable race ignition and two into two light weight race pipes should stop Gordon being a 'moron'.
