People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day. And doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.

Problem is that no matter what you do with it, it will have about as much power as a nose hair trimmer and weigh more than the president's wives

So wat presies doen jy met 'n nose hair trimmer wat 75nM teen 3500rpm het?

Whilst I like the engineering, it is making a harley impression of a 950 KTM or KLR (you do know an 883 uses the same carb as a KLR?) however despite all this and the facts, do I like it, NO I LOVE IT :biggrin: trying to get a Harley keeping up with 950's loverly  :peepwall:
