    Ha, ha, that is funny. Maybe, I should just start to wear a disguise when I go out, fake mustache, etc.

    I was looking for that a while ago, but couldn't remember where I'd seen it. Thanks Mary. I should'a known it was Mark.

    nope no milk crate

    im actually putting on sound proof sponge inside the plastic cases of the motor.and rubber on the cylinder lining,plus a really quiet exhaust,and a breathable cover with handle,so it looks like a small carry case,i dont want to, but the cops are not forgiving or human in these parts.thats why i put up the vid so i can do a before and after.the norco was clocked at 44 miles an hr yesterday.it handles very good and stops even better,guess thats what 50 dollar brake pads get you.hello bama i cant put the explanation in that thread,2 many stupid pills i guess,maybe a little help might fix it.

    Great Idea

    The milk crate thing is a sensible disguise.....great idea. And perhaps doubles as engine armour should the bike take a fall. I'll have to try this once I get my kit installed. Thanks!

    Beast, a really good auto shop should have an infra red thermometer to check your engine with. I bet they wouldn't charge much to check it. I'm concerned you may impede air flow. That's what one side of my brain says. The other side says that you are a wild and crazy guy who has probably given the issue lots of consideration anyway.
    Ride on!!

    about heat

    those milk crates are just 1 big hole,the only thing that would get blocked even a bit would be the gas tank.i started working in detroit michigan at maryjanes h-d shop in 1978 as a shop go getter i was a punk who grew up in a garage,sunoco,i have the sunoco tattoo on my arm haha,ended up trueing h-d flywheels to get rid of vibration,i was getting 30s and 40s crank sets from germany to do freehand on a wheel trueing machine that i built..plus i raced a rigid framed wheely wheeled 750 2 stroke kaw triple 750 in 79 -80 and learnt alot about 2 strokes going 140 miles an hr in seconds makes you not want a seize up yikes..checking temps is easy just look at your spark plug,i even go as far as cutting threads away to expose the ceramic,you get a true reading that way.ow the fun.
