Hi James,

Yep I have 17 on the front, but top end I only get 50, the bike wouldn't pull a skin off a rice pudding Sad
It won't do 50 on the flat only downhill... Mad

You'd think with injection it would be quicker than the carb model, but I think it is restricted with the ecu somehow???

Regards

Bob

that's true i use to have a mark2 escort rs2000 it was the fastest car i ever had. i had a 1.8 injection Si escort and that was no where near as fast.
the cat takes so much power out.
so the best thing to do then is find a old engine rebuild it and put it in your bike.or pass your test and get big bike
