    I've still got the shortened Sachs shock if you think you can use it.

    Special Öhlins en route, might have to shorten it a bit but our fabrication shop now is fully functional and I’ve learned or started relearning the dark art of mill and lathe work. Gonna be interesting. Truly wish we were doing this at like 12k feet with 50% aero drag!

    Never thought of that, thin air makes no difference to power output on an E bike.

    Sort of have an invite to Bolivia....waiting on details it it would have to involve some TV money. So figured out speed limiter...there isn’t one, just like earlier Aprilia the speedo stops reading at 151 mph....but it pulls the 17-38 gearing to motor redline of 9650 rpm.

    Really hoping to get a copy of MotoE firmware...fingers crossed, Stephano at Energica is trying to get it from the Italians ASAP. if more motor rpm equals more power it is worth it, if not, I need to find an 18 tooth F800GS 525 and 520 front sprocket ASAP, any ideas?

    JT Sprocket doesn't list an 18 for the F800 series, but they do have a 19 and 20 listed.

    http://www.jtsprockets.com/catalogue/model/3486/

    Might need a shim and machining for chain line.

    I know Revival machines sprockets too if you're in a jam.

    Can you go with a smaller rear Sprocket?

    Already have smallest rear, the electric question is really water gear ratio and motor rpm range will continue to gain speed between the 1/2 to full mile distance. It only took a bit over 2000 feet to hit 151 on a slight downhill incline so the potential is there. Bike really only gets 1-2 dyno tests before it’s lowered, nice lowered it will drag parts bad going onto dyno. If I get the MotoE firmware then sure, another test but really I just need a power delivery curve vs speed and rpm. The rest is just practical aero and testing. Anybody got a spare double bubble (tall) screen from a Gen 1 or Gen 2 Aprilia, gotta modify for sure but spacing is close to perfect.

    A taller rear tire would give you a little extra gearing...

    I have a Zero Gravity double bubble I used for maybe 50 miles. Didn't like it; less wind on my chest meant more weight on my wrists.

    It's still in the bag and box you sent it to me in, so quick and easy to ship.

    I’d be more than happy to try and fit it!

    Up to my ears today, but I'll get it off to you tomorrow.

    Oh, and it's a clear one for the RSVR in my avatar.

    Perfect, if it’s even close to fitting I’ll cut and drill till it works. I know from previous experience it’s good for 2.8 mph at a baseline of 175mph in Texas Mile racing.

    Micah, did you get that windscreen? My wife took it to USPS Tuesday, so you might have had it by Friday?
