got around to fitting the simonini pipe, it was made for an av10 so i had to do some adjustments.
one cut on the header to bend it for the av7
and one cut for the stinger to clear the stand at full variation, as well as a new hole and trimming the mounting tab
want to play around with jetting more, but just adding the pipe alone got me to 43 flat ground, and i took some weight out of the variator so it gets up and goes much better now.
I have an aluminum pug pulley to put on in an effort to lighten up the spinning bits, as well as not have a pulley thats all bent to shit.
