After i have checked booth wheels with bob wigth on the balancing stand i put them together with rollers and rods and had made the calculation of the balance factor for 55% and the wheels did almoust balance as they was, i added 20 gram on remote side and got it fully balanced and made a reverse calculation of the factor and foud ot it was 52%, what was perfect for my intention of a low rev torque engine.
I have, as usual, no intentions to create a price winner by the visual finish, for me its ok if it runs perfect. Im a user.
Also i have a theory that paint is decrease the cooling effect on the cylinders, what allways is critical for these old pocket valve engines.
I have added a fat boy rear wheel hub with disc brakes and a 4 speed gearbox from Electra Glide. The bike is totally different to handle and the torque is much more heavy then with the 3 speed gearbox.
Almoust togheter again after 2 months without engine. Last run was 19 of March, the ice race.
