No it was a heap of junk then! I got through 2 cranks before I sent it off to SRM for bottom end conversion, 750 barrels, gas flowed head and fitted Mikuni 34mm carbs. My unsspecting wife said I should get it done as a present but I kept quiet as the bill mounted up and she wasn't overjoyed when it arrived back! The front end does lift a bit now under fairly normal acceleration on a 20 tooth sprocket.
