About the alum clutch, if I remember it doesn't cause wheelies per say it just needs higher RPM to engage the gyro. So you really need to be on the throttle to keep the gyro going and it makes the one way bearing take more of a beating (not good)
The best option for this bike is the alum gyro period. Just enough gyro to overcome the pebbles & stones where you run to keep it from crashing.The weight saved makes the bike faster and more agile. I do have the next step up in the hot motor too, the 4900kv to try also.
I'd like to see 40-45mph as long as the amp draw is not too high and the temps stay reasonable. But all that'll have to wait for spring to come most likely...
Power is out again, about 7 hours now and it's snowing with high winds.
Thankfully I have a nice generator to keep the heat and lights on.....
