Vincent Project bike break-in

Vincent Project bike break-in

Postby worntorn » Mon Oct 12, 2015 7:01 am

Earlier on, John Bould asked me to do a speed run to find out what this thing will do. I can't find a safe spot to do that right now and can't open the bike up fully as it only has 700 miles on the new engine. I haven't had much time for motorcycles since finishing this bike.
My son-in-law was over for Thanksgiving yesterday so we made a little video of the bike running on the street in front of our place. I give it some good stick right at the end but still not full throttle. The power is so abrupt that I am afraid of ending up on my ass. Wouldn't that make a great video!
Rev limiter is now set at 6,000 revs.

Hopefully this video will perk you up a bit John. I was very sorry to hear your news.
