    Baloff my old friend, thanks for the kind words, I do truly love this bike, I thought the three before it were special but this one tops them.
    Is the shifter worth the expense? That's a hard one to answer for another man, for me yes, for you? I don't know brother, I'm pretty sure you would dig it but is that experience worth it for you, only you can say.

    Been talking to a bloke about tuning the bike properly, while he is happy to tune it with the 590's he suggested I consider a different cam set, seems I have more options than I thought.
    A mate gave me a set of SE 263E cams that were on the tuners list, 500km, nix because I helped him with his bike a few years ago and he hasn't forgotten, will need to change valve springs at a minimum but I guess that's the universe giving me a shove to get going,....I'm running with that anyway.

    Been looking into what springs to use with these cams and come up with some info on the stock 110 springs that I didn't know, apparently they don't coil bind untill .680" and have a safe lift of .640", this came from a well know state side head porter, he said he doesn't recommend anything over .625", just that that's the facts.
    Geometry should be corrected over .625" so there is that as well. 
    My mate had them put in his 2009 CVO on the recommendation of a Harley mechanic who said they would bolt in no worries, they did, the bike didn't shit itself but it was a dog down low with his compression so out they came, he did say it was mental after 3000rpm though.

    On a different project I have got the bits together to make up the shift light, chose a small led indicator/run light, the idea being to run the feed through an on/off/on switch so it can be either off, bright light for daytime or dull for night.
    Hopefully get it set up this weekend. 
    Couple of pics of what I have.

    Hey guys, you seem to spruking the quickshifter so much I had to get one. 
    Comes on Tuesday or Wednesday anyway -  I cant wait. 
    Grease Man, am watching with interest on ya little shift light project, as am going down that road (lol) too.Please keep us in the loop, thanks mate.

    Well, as am piss poor,  the choice was as either the quick shifter, or heated grips. 
    Don't know how I balanced that one out, quick shifter came in, but winter next year, the grips, that's for sure.
