Aniket riding the new 998 V-Twin in a parking lot
« on: January 30, 2013, 06:21:51 am »
Here's a link to a short video of Aniket on the 998 riding up and down a parking lot with some short acceleration runs. No mufflers.
I think his smile at the end says it all.

He makes all those "custom" builders look like dopes with all their bolt on crap. That's one talented guy.  ERC

It's all stock parts, right down to the Iron Barrels and floating bushes and stock con-rods and 28mm Mikarbs.

The Ace parts will go on the next build, and probably Aniket will modify this one later too.

Sounds incredible and looks like it goes fast as hell.  Impressive.

I've never seen the bullet indicators mounted off the nacelle - looks good.

It's got a boatload of torque, as you can imagine with basically 2 Bullet engines together there.
Probably around 50 ft-lbs of torque at peak. Right in the neighborhood with a Harley-Davidson 883 Sportster.

And there is plenty of higher power capability there with the right mods.

And it looks like a dream!

Tom,
Just being curious here regarding a potential UCE twin fireball. Am I correct in my understanding that the crank position sensor in conjunction with the throttle position sensor essentially 'trigger' the fuel injection and spark by completing/switching an electrical circuit.
