Feedback

Hello,I wanted to email and thank you for a great product. I have an 2002 Honda RC51 and have done every mod in the book and I recently

ordered one of your shift star kits. I am totally impressed and very pleased with the dramatic improvement I noticed in shifting.
Out of all my mods this is in the top 5. 1 being Ohlins forks. 2 being an Ohlins rear shock. 3 being a slipper clutch. 4 being a Scotts steering
damper and ...... 5 being the EVO SHIFT Star.
 
Thank you for researching and designing such a great improvement that only us motor heads understand what performance should be!!!!!!
 
Only thing that I would say ( and not a negative at all) is that installation was not as simple as I expected from reading. But, that's no biggie!!!
I have a killer set of tools and super sweet shop so the project was flawless. It just took 5 hours start to finish. But, again, we all know it
takes time to do things right.

Dear Marc,

Hey, got a shift star kit for my RC51 from you a while back and finally got around to installing it... wow! It works great, and no more pesky phantom neutrals!! Thanks a lot!    noble823

2008 March
Thank you very much fellas. I ot one of your kits last year + ive only just ridden the bike after winter rebuild. What a difference, gear change is super quick + precise. Feels like a different bike. Considering a stronger spring is fitted, to me it feels much lighter, the action is so slick. I'm over the moon.  Bike is rc51+ I'd recommend this mod 100%. Best wishes + regards, Gary Waller  [UK]

errata......

Theory:
"Using 2 short STOCK intake velocity stacks, instead of 1 long and 1 short will add 2 True HP to the upper mid and high rpm at the expense of 2 TRUE HP in the low / lower midrange"

Reality:
That's what worked very well on the VTR1000's and we never tested it or did it on the RC51 - so - unless you know better, you are on your own -
Remember - if you change camshafts - the optimum intake tract length WILL change, without any doubt at all!


Hint:  
The Shift STAR will make shifting so slick you'll think you have a new bike......




Maybe in next rewrite, he'll fix the ignition timing and dyno chapters...
Otherwise great book with great starting ideas.

The extension of the laboratory for engines of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology was completed in about 1935. Its architect was Rudolf Otto Salvisberg (1882-1940). He had a successful career in Berlin but returned to Switzerland after the advent of the Nazis. His architectural style was somewhat similar to that of Erich Mendelsohn. The staircase of the laboratory is in normal use but well preserved.
