This morning, the first day of two weeks off work, not really a holiday but okay, got out of bed at six and turned on the heating. First I fixed the handlebar heater of my wife’s bike, throttle side got loose. After that I’ve decided to take a look at the rapidbike evo that was lying around. Had a bit of an argument with the fuel hose but I convinced it to let go of the tank. So today I’ve mounted the rapidbike module, organised the wiring I’ve stuffed underneath the tank and installed the new controller for my handlebar heating. Tested if the bike would run and it did, I’m very glad. Tried to install the tuning software to my laptop, I failed, my laptop sucks a lot. I’ll have my way with it tomorrow with some pliers and a blowtorch, oh yeah baby, burn you unwillingly piece of shit.

Tomorrow I’ll try to run the software on a different machine and hook it up to the bike. I really want to take of the rpm limiter.

Some fotos.

Just curious, but why do you want to lose the rev limiter ??---Over revving won't give you any more power the way the engine is designed.--:confused:

engine has oodles of torque. It's quicker if you short-shift slightly rather than chasing extra revs.
You’re absolutely right, engine character is great. I’ve installed the rapidbike because the engine could be running lean. Next season it should be fine tuned on a dyno bank. So there’s gonna be even more torque. My idea is to mount a one tooth bigger front sprocket so the engine can do 80 kmu at a lower rpm. I’ve already installed a cruise control and made a very long playlist on Apple Music. Next year we’re of on a three week holiday to Norwegen. Wild camping so we’re planning the be as self sufficient as we possible can.

With a bigger front sprocket it's probable that you will never see 10,000 rpm in 6th gear.----;)



That extension you are making. That should hold the back down OK and keep the spray from the tyre off you.--:rolleyes:

How much does all that lot weigh?! I admire you’re enthusiasm but surely an approach in aluminium is way better for weight and therefore the handling of your bike? Personally I’d explore a system made from aluminium and nylon webbing.

With aluminium I wouldn't worry about welding the assembly.

Far better to just bolt the sections together, that's what I did when making a frame for a table using 30x30x3 and 50x50x3 a few years back.
Using bolts and butterfly nuts means I can take the whole thing apart in minutes for transportation.

Frame & wheel, 15kilo. I’m not afraid of the handling. Just gonna use it for holiday and even that isn’t sure. If so, won’t be carrying anything heavy. Tent, sleeping bags, some clothes and shoes. Lightweight chairs, small fuel stove ans some bits and pieces. It’s not as I’d be moving my vault or what you’d call it.

Just as an experiment I’d strap 20 or so kg’s to the tail of your bike and go for a ride and see how it feels
