Evo Shift STAR kit
Tired of shifting like a truck?
Almost banish the 2nd gear CLUNK. Save 2nd gear and its shift fork.

This is the same type of kit that the M109 riders rave about.
No case splitting involved to install.
A new F-Pro MicroBearing detent arm and the final piece... A completely redesigned, empirically refined, multi angled, variable radii, repeaked and valleyed FP EVO Shift STAR.
This kit will totally change the feel of the bike. The shifting effort is about the same - but the speed at which the gears actually engage is dramatically improved - Quicker, easier, shifting - A "twitch" on the lever and the throttle and you are in the next gear. Perfect for drag use and road riding for effortless downshifts into a corner and just a "tap" to upshift without any more than a "twitch" of the throttle - That's not even mentioning that missed shifts virtually disappear.
In town? Low rpm cruise in second - shift to third? So quick and smooth that it will surprise and amaze - NO more clunky, lazy shifting in town - As I said - it's totally different and improved -
Proven concept - Virtually all the Factory Pro Support riders in the AMA and WERA multi- Champions Vesrah Racing tested and proved the EVO Shift Stars.
Stock shift performance that everybody used to take as a "given" will be regarded as "slow and lazy" after riding a bike with this kit -
Kit includes a new detent arm with a low friction microbearing roller and the NEW Factory Pro EVO Detent Star.
Make shifting quicker, easier and virtually eliminate missed shifts.

dynojet dyno tuning

When running a vtx 1800 on a dynojet dyno, both the Main Fuel Map AND the stock Honda ecu's acc. map are activated, providing additional fuel.

The a/f ratio looks VERY rich and the power commander tuner will lean out the mixture to look good under very quick acc. rates - as the dynojet dyno sweeps are, with high torque / HP bikes.

In the real world, the bike does NOT accelerate as quickly as it did on a dynojet dyno and the fuel from the acc. map is not present - and the bike is actually VERY dangerously lean after being "tuned to an air fuel ratio".

Enough to scuff the pistons.

This is the very same dynojet dyno tuning problem that dynojet tuned / ZX10's have -
The bike accelerates quickly enough on a dynojet so that the Kawasaki ECU activates its acc. fuel maps and the bike, even though properly tuned for the real world, or when using an EC997 dyno, looks rich on a dynojet a/f ratio - and the trained dynojet "operator" leans the main fuel mapping out - not realizing that he is looking at the combined mixture of the main fuel and the acc. fuel maps, together.

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.
