Well Steve, things were happening so fast I was shifting at a perceived
5500rpm but it was spinning up so fast I bet it was more like 6000rpm by the
time the shift took place(a pause for huge grin here). I don't think you
need to spin it up more than that for the street. I would say Mr. Owen is
spot on at 6200rpm. I looked at the plugs and they look perfect. They were
cold plugs from my BSA. (N5C Champions). I may just have to take it out
again first thing now that I know everything is fine in the combustion
chamber. I won't be sleeping much tonight either because I can't wait to
jump on again and go for a blast and it's only 30 deg. here. I don't really
care if it is -30 deg I'm riding this baby.

I just took the bike out for it's first run around the block. It runs
great! I have to wait for colder plugs or I would have never come home.
It takes a bit getting use to working the fuel shut off but I am getting
the hang of it. Other than a little bit of fuel spill now and then it is a
great mod. The sound of the blower can be heard inside my fullface Shoie
helmet and over the boom of the Dunstall silencers. I still have to do some
polishing and replace one of my original leaking petcocks but this thing
is awesome. I have always wanted an 850 Commando and I never would have
even imagined I could have a supercharged one. I will send photos when it is
completed to my satisfaction but let me tell you this. I ride a nitrous
injected Honda 996 Superhawk as a daily ride and I have a few GP race
bikes but nothing, I repeat NOTHING!! stirs my soul like this setup. The only
other mod will be a steering damper because the bike lifts up in every
gear now and it upsets the steering and a gunfighter seat from Corbin to keep
me from sliding off the back of the bike when I twist the throttle. In
closing all I can say is YEEEEEHAWWWWWWWW!!!!
I'll keep you posted. Mike
