I still get lost with or without a map ! I plan to go in the morning about 9 to 10 (my morning that is ).
Will explain when i see you...it's more their sitting on the shaft and crankcase. You did mention it being tight right?

You won't get lost. take the same route to go Andalas but on the last flyover where it heads to Banting, go down left instead and follow signboards to Jln Istana. There'll be a roundabout with 6 exits...looks like a turtle on the signboard.

From there on stick your nose out the window and follow the scent of the fumes...

So you dont pass that info to your wing man on purpose ?

About that KHM shaft, I still dont understand why my personal modded shaft (exactly same timing with KHM) still can not match the genuine one. Especially in mid-above rpm.

whew!, lucky I decided against changing the bearings in my NSR.

could it be due to the turbo scoop and the diameter of the inner hole of the crank. The KHM crank ID looks rather big.

Only on a need to know basis.

Maybe something to do with the balance? You like your KHM shaft very much? I still have not tested mine.

I notice that compared to the NovaMax one, the opening on the KHM is slightly wider still ! I don't have a protector to gauge in degrees how big it was opened but my guess it's about 2 to 3 degrees more than the NovaMax. More advance timing.

Anyway, it is common for the main ceramic bearing to be very tight when fitting the crankshaft in?

I think when Goldfinger mentioned that he did the same thing on his on crankshaft, he meant that everything was the same.

Anyway, I thought the scoop on the Max is slightly bigger. Else, everything else is the same cut except on the timings.

Could be, actually it was the only excuse I had
I like it very much, especially in the mid-range. Very very linear.
Intake periode is actually the longest one IMHO.
The downside is small scratch will affecting performance so much.
Just like the FX ones. Extra attention on the air filter is a must.

Yeah, tighter than Novas one

Woow ! Where did you get that from? How much? I don't think Serpent made an adjustable one.

Default JP in 710

Just one other thing, i have bought a JP FX 12 (black case) and was just wondering if anybody else was running one? It is just after 15 tanks is is still very slow, it is not getting to top revs. I am just wondering if anybody else has had this problem? I have tried adjusting the high speed needle but to no avail any ideas?

What pipe are you using? Has the engine been broken in fully?
