About power boost: a) motor was riding at 61+mph up from 55mph b) air force to overcome is proportional to *square* of speed then: power increase shall be sth like 26% not 12%

If you would like to see fuel injection performance, check out the Harley VROD (VRSC)which features Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI). Oh yeah, it has been around for years.

Congratulations Dayun on your magnificent technical achievement. As a Michigan resident, I'm pleased that ElectroJet of Brighton played a role in that record-setting run at Bonneville.
