hi it's been a couple of months and i've made some changes. the attached pic shows what it looks like now.

here's what i've done in terms of tuning

1 parmakit 15mm intake but with stock reeds & cage

2 15.15 dellorto

3 malossi hi comp head

i kept the stock reed cage because it looked a bit better made and fit for the engine, but i may try out the parmakit one.

so far, it is a lot peppier and the carburetion is very reliable (definite improvement over the gurtner). but acceleration from start isn't great so my next step will be to take a look at the variator. any tips on opening it up? so 2/4 balls in there is enough? i hear a bit of rattling coming from the variator...if this is abnormal, let me know.

so just for clarification, the ninja g3 requires loss of center stand, but i've heard that the stand mount also has to be cut off...anyone verify this? i wouldn't want to cut this.
