Thanks UBW.
Using Windows Live sure seems easier on my computer than when I did the first video. I guess I'm using Windows resources somewhere versus my own. Big difference.

Had a fella wanting to see the bellcrank so I figured I'd try another video.

Thanks.
I can ride it quiet or loud.
The sound dictates with the fuel mileage...
It's needing tires again. I'm going with a C/T on the rear this go-'round.

She's 7 months old now.
Starting to crawl, gnaw, swat the dog, all the good stuff...
More jar food than bottle food.

She's gettin' there...

I'm hap-hazardly looking for a sidecar...
Not convinced she'd like it packed in the tag-along trailer just yet, and Momma was, well, amused at the idea of the carseat on the back of the 'Wing.

I'm getting there...

Do all the four-cylinder wings rock sideways like that when you rev them? Something to do with camshaft design/position?

Hi Nico - Good observation.
Not many ask the right questions like that..

I've a custom grind on my cams. For those that are into cams, I'll say I've 32 degrees of overlap.

Not much in that motor is stock anymore.

Last dyno'd @ 106hp.

At the end of the video, that's the rear tire breaking traction.

Nice. I really want a setup like that. The Goldwing flat four is absolutely perfect for a setup like that. I am so tired of dealing with FI and multiple carbs. I remember how simple my air cooled bugs with a single carb were. Not highly tuned, but dead reliable. I was about to ask if you modified the cams, I was told the stock cams had too much duration to run a single carb. From the way it runs, it is obvious you got it right.

What are you planning for the rear tire? I would love to go darkside but haven't found anything yet that will work on my 76 or my 82.

Your bike sounds really good. Good video.

Thanks for the compliment Larry.
Darkside - I think I've found a tire that will work.
Dunlop has a C18 vintage reproduction 50'5 tire...
M&H has a tire as well.
I'll try the Dunlop.
