Except the wrong throttle cable everything worked extremely well !

Cold or hot start of the engine, no problem !
Idling at constant speed, no problem !
Had to adjust the accelerator pump (just a Philips headed screw) to act at a very early stage.

Could accelerate at low revs in 5th gear without any issues. Very clear connection and feedback between throttle grip and engine, very nice. Not a vulminat improvement over the LTD carbs with Dynojet kit (both with K+Ns) at low revs, I would say, but without any failure.

Not any pitch or patch from the exhaust, neither when acceralerating nor decelerating.

The real fun starts at high revs.
I guess from 5.000 rpm upwards the engine doesn’t stop further reving up.
It’s scary and I’ve interrupted high rev acceleration in 3rd or 4th gear at some point by shifting into next gear.
Don’t have a rev counter fitted !

The intake noise hasen’t changed significant against the LTD carbs.

Needed force to turn and hold the throttle grip has increased by, let me guess, 30-50%.

It is a bit complicated to fit the tank and the throttle cable. Both at same side and height/position/space.
In my case there is a Pingel fuel cock used. This collides with the already mounted throttle cable and the throttle cabe hasn’t much space below the flanges of the fuel tank.

Finally I managed to get it mounted 😉

Looks like issues, that can be solved and overall performance is fine.
Maybe some “funnels” instead of the K+Ns can improve the intake noise 😉

Overall a good experience, we four riders had much fun today and I have nice coloured downtubes now !

Cheers, Michael
