C'mon Mike. You can fix that. It's not rocket science. You just need a stronger frame. Get out your gas torch and your welder. :)

I did some jetting passes and now have 88 mains in the secondaries :shock:
seems to 'cruise' better too .it was lean with the 84's also, more testing if the rain holds off :roll:
guess this Demon 750 isn't too BIG for the 1915cc like I thought :lol:

Just got the new Piston rings for the 2276 ,(TotalSeal 2nd) now waiting on the Brand 'Spankin' New cylinders, I've never had new ones in this motor :oops: :lol: so 'testing wasn't scary at all,,, cracked a few side walls,, and one top ring lost it's tension, so out of pocket $$ wasn't too bad.
freshen up the heads with some new springs too, glad I had a Helper changing them yesterday, my arms are still sore, darn dual's :lol:

I had secondaries hanging up on the gasket in mine when I first built it. Took me forever to figure it out.
