Tighter bearings will usually fix the timing problem.

Make sense boys??
Now, at this point the evening is set!
Jack, welcome back!

Sounds like the problem must be related to operating in the US of A.

I'm still getting my energy back after working nightshift in the freezing cold. Kinda kicks the wind out of your sails for a couple days.

LOL...I suppose once your all unzipped, it's a race with time and shrinkage to be sure it's not all in your long johns!!

It's when you pull out a pube thinking it's your dinkus... and It's just that cold!

Ya... I've been in contact with a few guys in the UK and I'm super stoked about what I'm hearing!! This thing sounds to be in between the DA200 and Mintor220 and seems to shine in the torque department with heavier load props (ie 32x12).

Saturday AM I will be getting a set of 150cc cans from Mike W (thanks Mike!!). Sat PM I will set up the test stand and Sunday will be testing of cans and RE3 pipes
