The CL7B in the video appeared to be lean on top, and rich on the bottom, as well as the idle too high. Also, the clutch is too heavy, try one step stiffer spring.

I think I spotted too much camber on the front, cut it back 1/2 a degree...

Oh during this video the motor had a airleak as the backplate was leaking badly ( installer error) ! during the last few moments the backplate was missing 2 screws and the motor was acting up..... As well the Hyper ST is a tank so bottom end may be a little weaker.... So if you were talking about my first video then I can understand...

http://video.google.ca/videoplay?doc...41092418741831

but my next video inthe Mugen was a good tune and other then the driver not taking his finger off the trigger all the way the motor does not high idle whatsoever, any lower of an idle and the motor will flame out .......... As well due to a sudden ran storm all testing had to stop, this was the only video I could shoot before we got rained out...... So we will see if tune needs any tweaking when I have more time to run ..its pretty tough to do running only 1 tank after a motor transplant

I am unsure how much tighter clutch I would want to run..it is running OFNA silver shoes on 1.1 springs..... I have a M2C clutch setup that will likely have a snappier engagement, as I can use a lighter hard compound shoe.....

I still have not run a 2013 on this motor, which is likely why I didn't get the best bottom end when it was stock..... I have run a JP3, 053,086 and MSR 1005...with the MSR 1005 being the best out of the group...... I guess I really should get a 2013 and see if it picks up the low end... I am always a little skeptical when people tell me to buy brand specific pipes..in the past I have purchased a MSR 2053 FLS to go with my Ninja 28, a Picco 069 to go with my EVO 2, in both cases those pipes hurt engine output much more then it helped when compared to the traditional pipes like the 086,053 and MSR 1005...... I even sent the Picco 069 and the MSR 2053 to be dynoed on a X-Dyno just to see..... In both cases the brand specific pipes faired very poorly..... So I purchased the CL7B STI, 2 of them actually..and tested them on my general stable of pipes and to be honest when stock I really wasn't overly impressed, which is mainly why I was not willing to invest in the 2013 pipe..... I have had a bad taste with buying brand specific pipes and the Sirio originally didn't impress me enough to warrant the extra expense.... As usually the pipes I use will bring out great power in any motor and I am skeptical a 2013 is going to do anything different, but with my Sirio's latest performance I am more willing to invest in a specific pipe......

Anyways I will try and find a 2013, as well I will see if I can get a better video of the motor with maybe a better tune......

yes, it's me... oh crap, I'm discovered lol

Sirio's like light clutches, especially if you just want to do wheelies.
