"world's fastest" by what measure?

"stock gl1000" ?!
With claims to have nitrous... doesn't that rule out the stock equation???

No.
My nitrous set-up uses a dedicated nitrous manifold w/different Weber carburetor.

The video is of a internally stock engine (with valve spring issue) using one of my standard manifolds with Tom Langdon's Motorcraft 740 (Weber DFT32 licensed copy) on it as-shipped to me from Tom. I've no need to recalibrate due to following his instruction on applying heat to the bottom of my plenum.

Irregardless of the key-wording, the video is demostrating flawless operation of the "as-calibrated" carburetor from Tom on a stock '77 GL1000 engine having a slightly modified DYNA III electronic ignition and exiting through Rinehart Racing mufflers.

**With a little concentrated work, anyone can buy Tom's carburetor and have similar results very easily with a stock engine.

How is anyone to know what you have or what you claim... you post contradicting pictures to your claims, faulty tachs are used to base your claims, and your videos of a daily rider show you tuning the set up after start-up. That doesn't support your claim of a daily rider.

Post what you want to, but the truth is out there... just not where you want people to look.

I live in Sioux Falls. I'm not the only Goldwing in town.

I do?
My "pictures" speak for themselves. That's why I post pictures, to show what it is that I'm talking about. If I'm claiming something from your perspective, then I'll need to know exactly what particular claiming you're talking about.

The tachometer isn't faulty. It's representation of the actual RPM is inaccurate in scale.
I haven't had time to make new overlays for 'em. I plan to do that this winter sometime.

Of this video? No it does'nt.
What you see me doing is feeling the coolant chamber, the plenum area above it and the runners for warmth.
It's amazing feeling the warmth develope and hearing the engine alter its characteristics while it's happening.

What truth are you speaking of?
Google is King of the search engines. Each and every post that I make realizes that fact.

-----------------------
I do recall being new to a Goldwing and searching for a conversion.
I recall finding little that had convinced me of it being a viable and working option to the factory rack.
CC Products clearly offered a top conversion at one time, and I've yet to find anyone saying it was not a viable option from their experience in using it as a replacement to the factory induction.
Cycle Innovations offered a conversion as well, though the above CCP conversion is clearly better for a few key reasons.

I'm much more than a "tinkerer" or a backyard engineer, so I set about trying to do something on my own due to the VOLUMES of misinformation out there at the time and since..

If the tachometer is your real enemy in my video, ...then disregard it and use your ears, as the video is not designed for any of us that have been around for a handful of years, ...or even a month.
The video is what I would've wanted to see when I was new to this Goldwing single-carburetor issue.
The tachometer is a mute point to the video, this thread and the Google key-wording that gets it out there effectively to the "new-guy" in my view.

If debating the tachometer relevancy after this post is still of interest to anyone but you, I doubt I'll spend any more time explaining any more of it.

Hope your day goes well.

You are selling it, no one is buying it.

Denial is not a river in Africa. That is the Nile.

You notice there isn't a lot of discussion about SCC happening here lately. I wonder why?

There will be. Don't worry about it.
Newborns take time to grow through their pains.
This new sub-forum ain't no different.
