    Posted: 11 May 2015 at 13:29
Yesterday was the first "proper" test of the Big Bore compared to the last RSV I had and the change is massive, the amount of power now available throughout the midrange is awesome, as said before, 2nd gear wheelies are very very common and too easy lol

I also now enjoy a different noise, the Big Bore has made the engine note deeper, you can definitely tell, a gorgeous pair of 100mm CP pistons live under the tank Hehe!

I've also not noticed any "real"change in fuel economy either, there is a change yes, however, it's not as Big as you'd think, I did a mixture of dual carriage way A Road riding for about 100 miles and a lot of short point and shoot country B lane riding, I still got 120 miles to a tank on the long A road run at ahem speed Wink

I'am so happy with the bike, it's a real stunner and I'am very lucky, the front suspension was very low on the front, it was bloody quick to turn in though, I've taken some of that off and it's much better now

My riding was utterly sh*t on the south east ride out but I've been clocking up a few miles on my fav B roads now and the confidence is getting there again YaY Big smile

I've now learned that NO RSV should be without the following mods lol
Big Bore 1060 conversion
Hooked carbon airbox 
57mm throttle bodies 
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

I'am off out now this afternoon coz the weather is gorgeous Hehe ttfn

Thought I'd update this first post with the updated pic lol...

The only thing that could have made that bike better was a big bore dude, it's a beautiful looking bike mate....I wish I had the funds to re - home it when it was up but it'll get looked after I'm sure,

Hahaha thought I was the only one to do that. The kids get a rub on the head and the ape a little tap hopefully they will all love me forever although the kids might not appreciate it when they are 15 but the mille is 11 and still likes it!

Hehee, cheers dude, she's looking good, I've gotta find some replacement decals for the rear lower grey ones because the Image Works ones are crap, they don't fit right...

Other than that, it's all good, she might get treated to a few more goodies soon Wink

Hahahaa, cheers Scott, yeah I was on the bends the other day and had a spanish R in front of me, was wondering if it was you lol.

Well, NickyBoy took his first ever pillion passenger out the other day, it was my first time ever carrying a pillion and it was her first time riding on the back of a bike, what a way to start but on the back of a Big Bore 1060 RSV-R huh Hehehehe.....

It was a bit weird at first but got the hang of the extra weight fairly quickly and she also learned Very quickly that my 13 year old bike WASN'T 13 year old slow Hahahaha......

Did the Burnham bends and loved it, that rear seat is much comfier than I thought lol
