    with an
    I would stick with the 92mm pulley (11 psi). You will have more than ample hp/tq on your hands. And if your rear tire width starts with the digit...."2" , you will roast them. If this is for mainly street use, a 305 or 315 will fare better.

    VMP shipped everything except the pulley. After sorting through the boxes, I called them and asked where the pulley is. They said the pulley is on back order and looking at about 2 weeks till they get them in.

    This messes me up because I have an install date of the 23rd.

    I wish that was an e-mail conversation, that way I could say to e-mail them back a picture of a middle finger.

    It's bullshit they didn't mention that until the customer calls looking for the missing part.

    It's aggravating. You'd think they'd notify me ahead of time instead of me trying to figure out what's NOT in one of the four boxes they sent.

    Yea there was a packing slip in one of the 4 boxes. Next to where the pulley is listed says, in pen, "bo" .

    After calling them I realized the "bo" meant back order.

    Well you are 2 weeks away so maybe it will show up by then. I would still go ahead with the install.

    That's good news. Do you have everything you need for the install?

    Only thing I'm waiting on are the Sai Li fuel system and the pulley. The Sai Li will be here tomorrow.
