Has anyone taken it upon themselves to shove a Revolution motor in a Buell frame? Just as a b/c-we-could project? I would love to see how it played out.

I think the heads are far too wide to fit inside the Buell frame in the same place as the Sporty engine.



That said, I'm only basing this on observations by my carefully-calibrated eyeball - I never actually stuck a tape-measure on 'em to see actual dimensions. Errors can/will be made.

Well, you're half-right.

Good, it needs it.



And, yes, I was too lazy to check the site myself.

three questionable things:

3.8 gal.. means way too many stops for fuel.

the Vrod eats fuel!

5 speed trans?

what the heck are they thinking?

120hp for $39,900?

yea right.

I'm wrestling with putting the 999 up for sale to pick up a 1098.



Roehr.. don't wait up for my "escrow" deposit.

How are the training rides going? Only four months to go.
