You deserve to be justly proud of that and your hard efforts sir Glen. Well done indeed.

However, I think the video should be titled 'keeping you in suspense' ... !

It sounds and looks awesome!

I just read through the entire post again (2nd time) so beautiful and muscular a bike I'll probably have to read it all through again.

Hey there worntorn, I just looked over this thread again and since I'm sorting out the old 2 into 1 exhaust system on my 850 MKIII i was intrigued by your nicely done exhaust. Where did you source the collector as it looks prefab ? bwolfie pointed me in the direction of cone engineering who almost have what I'm looking for but not quite. Cj

Hi CJ
Yes, the collector did come from Cone Engineering, as did the megaphone. The 2" ubends came from another company, can't remember their name at the moment.
I did modify the collector quite a bit, but it was a good starting point. I added slip fit rings to the collector so that it is a rubber mallet tap fit into the headers. A stainless spring on the inside face holds the collector into the header pipes, though the fit is tight enough that it likely is not needed.
With the collector removed the pipes are easy to get on and off individually. With the collector left on the pipes can still be taken on and off (didn't expect that) but it is a bit tricky to get things lined up.

.424" mark. The tools for measuring this distance were a section of 3/8" precision ground square stock and feeler gauges. The square stock is used as a straight edge across the crankcases timing case joint face, the feeler guages to measure between the top of the straight edge and the underside of a washer tightened down on each spindle shoulder.


Glen, Were these spindles actually movable with slide hammer at ambient temps? I need to replace a front cam spindle (currently .501 and going to a .503) and also the follower spindle directly to the rear of this front cam (have not removed). I am replacing oil pump at this time as well.

Yes, they moved a few thou at room temps using a specially made slide hammer, a fairly easy tool to make up.
For the amount you plan to move, I would use heat on the cases. You could do it one at a time using a torch just on the case area around the spindle being worked. The slide hammer will still be needed even if heat is used, but with heat you can move the spindle with gentle taps rather than a major effort that could mess up the interference fit.

Thanks, I did make up a 5/16 BSF slide hammer tool and it was very useful both for spindles and oil pump sleeve. Spindles replaced, oil pump replaced.

The goal last year was to get the big engine together, installed and running. That was accomplished but then the bike was put aside until last week.
It has about 500 miles on it now, so the rev limiter is set for break in at 5000 revs Max, which is 122 MPH in fifth gear. Once it reaches 1500 miles or so I'll reset the rev limiter for 6800, which I am confident it will pull.

I had it out last night on a lonely stretch. Running at 85 mph in fifth I opened it up. It took off like my Commando does in second at fifty. Just before it hit the rev limiter a second power kick came in, very strong.
Top speed will be more than enough!

Glenn , Thank you , this thread is full of info.
I have a Pazon to install on a Vincent twin and wondered if you have photo of the Pazon modules you installed on this project. It looks like you put them or it under the front mag cover.

I don't have any photos of it, but yes the ignition module (just one on mine) is under the front cowl. The coils are under the seat.
Pazons instructions advise to keep the module well away from the ignition coils and also the high tension leads.
The ignition fitted is Pazon's high draw setup with two drivers for high compression/racing/alcohol twin plug engines. For Vincent twins they also offer a road going lower draw two plug setup and a single plug setup. I was surprised at the number of Vincent ignition choices offered by them.
I wanted the spark to be as hot as possible to aid with starting, since it is a difficult beast to kick over.
