2) Stock rear replaced with MRF Zapper 100/90-18.00
3) Engine block,grabrail painted black.
4) K&N RC1060 installed.
5) Exhaust by PROTON.
6)Upjetted:-The carbeurettor now is from a P-180.
7)Round headlamp unit from the P-150.
8) Horn by Stebel,Italy.To listen to it check out www.stebel.it.
9) Coil winding to increase illumination.





The jobs planned:-
1)Single pod instrument cluster from the Eliminator.
2)Gas based shock absorbers for the rear.Suggestions required as to which ones:-P-150,Apache or the inverted ones found on the Bullet.

Expansion chambers are for 2 stroke engines. 4 strokes use free flow. You have the proton. Tell me what difference the proton gives you? How does it sound? Can you upload the sound file?

Hey smoke2gold, change the wheels to the five spoke variety found on P180, Apache etc. They will suit the bike better.

Its just a big a** horn man, nothing special Sorry man. Will scare the guy in front of him ****less when he honks.

Upjetting or changing the jets will not affect the reliability, wear and tear of your engine. It does improve performance if done correctly.

Upjetting and playing around with your carburetor is not really easy. What you get in stock form is the best setting for your bike for the local climatic conditions. People mostly tend to concentrate on the main jet and forget about the pilot jet. It doesn't really matter much on a four stroke to a large extent but its imperitive that you give the pilot jet another look when it comes to a 2 stroke.

Your pilot jet is what controls the fuel being sent into your engine upto 1/4th of your throttle, after which your main jet takes over. Engine starting, idling problems can be at times attributed to the pilot jet.

Did you mount the horn at the back side of your bike!! Why?

If it was space constraints i'm damn sure that you could've found a good enough place to mount it in front of the bike, somewhere near the engine. Or did you find the sound too loud that you can't honk while you're riding lol and so you decided to let the pillion suffer.... and also you can shoo off those following you

Put four Nautiluses on the four corners of the bike and you can have lift off, VTOL style like those harrier jets!
j/k

Cheers.
