its gotta be nerve wracking having to give instructions to THE TUNER.Well got a new wastegate on the bike and going to have him check the tune slash retune it with me there. The new waste gate works and doesn't move around on boost pressure. Going to have him richen the tune up.
I’d check/change your plugs before you go back to make sure there’s no speckling on the porcelain.Well got a new wastegate on the bike and going to have him check the tune slash retune it with me there.

Yep!That would be aluminum that has transferred from the top of the piston on to the spark plug not a good thing !
unbelievable info here... also... silver is a better electrical conductor than nickel...The good ole NGK CR9E is good for most guys, and most applications.
However I do like to use Brisk plugs on many occasions. They’re double the price of the ngk’s, they last only a few thousand miles, and have absolutely zero gain in performance. Reason being NGK plugs electrodes are made from nickel vs a Brisk’s electrode being made of silver.
Why is that significant? Science. On gasoline engines, once exhaust gas temps get in the ballpark of 1800 degrees, the pistons start to melt. 1600 degrees is considered the upper limit of safe for gasoline engines typically.
With that being said, nickel melts at 2600 degrees, while silver at 1700 degrees. The brisk plugs are sold as “racing spark plugs”. They are designed to fail before serious engine damage occurs by the way of the ground electrode melting off.
I always use them on LSR bikes, non innercooled drag bikes, anything spraying nitrous or using an aggressive tune up.
So when the tip melts, you’ll get bad miss because that cylinder doesn’t have spark. Take it back to the pits, find the burnt plug and check it for speckeling. Appreciate the thousands of dollars it saved you, jam a new plug in, And then check the data to see why it ate a plug.
Overall I agree with you on this. But in a competitive race class tuning conservatively usually goes out the window. Winning is more important then engine longevity for most guys at that level of racing.Stock plugs, gapped tight, good tune, no issues . . .
I really feel like for a few hundred bucks for shipping... (I don't know where u are) A GREAT tune would transform the bike... along with peace of mind and a working relationship with a turbo guru... frank or rob... whoever is closer cold make the bike better.... guaranteedWell I finally got to weigh my bike at the track this weekend. Bike weighs 550 pounds and 740 with me on it. Kinda dissapointed in the bike. I know it's heavy but it's slow. Doesn't trap any more then my other bike that's a 1397 on 110 pump fuel. The bike is different to launch compared to the all motor bike.
even if its just a tune... ull love it.... the problem with huge builds are they take time/planning... and frank gets very busy....I totally agree. That's my plan is to have one of them build the motor and retune it. Just need to finish wedding stuff and after that I will feel comfortable to dump money into the bike.
