      @Home build - how about some video to hear/see it running? Looks amazing, hope we can get some details at some point.

      I'll do video shortly. This is version 2, the first one had a different blower on it and a stock engine without any intercooler and would get hot on long pulls. This one is an all new rebuild with a Web cam and
      J and E pistons and is still being broken in, but I am seeing 5 psi boost right now. That will change after break in and go up until is shows that it doesn't like it. Right now it stays cool, that makes me happy, haven't heard a ping yet either. Most of the mods are hand made in my shop except for the long Progressive Suspension shocks along with the emulsion valves in the forks and the speedo and front brakes from a FZ 6. Some of the mods might not have been worth the effort, like moving the rear brake to under the axle, it makes it hard to pick up the back of the bike so I had to make part for a floor jack to safely do that.
