    The USD forks swap has been completed. To compliment the front end modification, the bike is currently undergoing a monoshock suspension modification which will incorporate later model 17" wheels.

    Talked the owner (coworker) into selling me this bike a couple months ago. It's currently undergoing a USD fork swap and several other upgrades.
    Photos will be posted.

    What did it take to get the front fork conversion done?

    Hey Robawf.... I'm wondering what you can tell me about this Hyperpack TCI unit you've utilized. I'm thinking its possible I may run into an air fuel mixture that may require an aggressive spark.

      The Hyperpak TCI is a solid unit. My bike seems to run better since installing the TCI. Supposedly the way the advance curve is set up is different from the stock configuration. Whatever it is, the bike just pulls really in a semi violent kind of way different than before. Thats fine with me. The company that sells them is Electronic Research and Development,it is out of New Zealand.

      Its a one man shop ran by a guy named Wayne Gum, damn good guy, stands behind his product 100%. He has a eBay storefront or you can order from ERD. The only drawback is the standard shipping time to the US from NZ is 3 to 4 weeks, so you gotta deal with that wait time. The price was about $130.00 because it was on sale for the Thanksgiving Cyber Sale whatever thing. I did replace my coils, wires and plug caps with new stuff along with rewiring the bike from scratch when installing the Hyperpak.
