My older sister died recently. I’m dealing with financial, legal and funeral biz for right now.
  My original GT kept locking up and got the engine to turn over after opening the primary case. I did this twice, and it still wouldn’t kick through. It’s sitting with a mechanic. It’s more or less out of the picture.
  I picked up a 2014 GT from Jeremy at Cycles of Silver Spring (MD). This bike will get the Fireball. Two days ago I installed the Power Commander. I installed the Air Kit. It came with a ‘sports’ muffler. I installed a Carpy header. I’m getting some miles on this GT when I can. It has 269 miles now.

I wish things were rosier, but this coming week should be a bit better.
Cheers,
Bill

...and having to see the loss of a person and sibling. "Life is a trial, and it will eventually be done". Condolences: motorcycles may be interesting or a way of earning a living, but mean nothing in that time.

Thanks, Gizzo. I’ll be back!
I heard from the busy mechanic who will be healing ConnieGT’s ailing primary. I will be adding the Clubman Kit head to this GT #1. Head work will be done soon.

The Fireball will be installed on my CGT 535 this summer. Ace and I have concentrated on the Clubman Kit 1 and 2. It is a modified stock head. But, we are using stainless steel one piece valves. The intake valve is 1mm oversize. The 2 uses ‘beehive’ valve springs that can work reliably with our cams. My Bullet B5 has the Clubman Kit 2…. Head and cams. It also has a Power Commander V, set up with Dynojet’s AutoTune. The silencer is a free flowing modified HD Sportster muffler. The ‘midrange’ runs from idle to the rev limiter. It’s one big mid-range! The power is always there.
  We like performance that retains a solid street performance.
