The Hammer
« on: August 17, 2019, 11:50:50 am »
    It seems either very few folks know about the Hammer flash, or it's just not  "ticking the box" for them. I say this because the Mountain Runner flashes are the clear favorite, and what almost everyone who speaks with me is interested in.  Regardless, I thought it might be a good idea to let folks know about The Hammer flash.

   The Hammer is the final evolution of my original flash from back in 2015. It is the most powerful flash of all flashes offered by any vendor for a c-14 with a slip on. It is smooth from bottom to top, delivers great fuel economy, and rides like a properly carbureted bike on off to on throttle conditions. Where it differs from the Mountain Runner flashes is that the secondaries do not mute initial throttle pickup, so it's "all the power, all the time", in other words you will get 100% of the available power for any given throttle setting. The Hammer does not exhibit the low throttle engine braking that the Mountain Runner flashes have, so I think unless you're a very experienced mountain rider the Hammer is probably not the best choice in that situation. On the other hand, if you are in a place like I live, the land of 11 curves in 318 miles, the Hammer is certainly the more "fun" flash. This is where it shines. The power from initial throttle turn is impressive all the time. Wheelies are common. The low gears will test your reactions because it's wheel up and pulling off the tach.

    If you're looking to impress yourself with the c-14's power, this is it. Spend some time riding on the Hammer and you'll understand how it got it's name, there's nothing subtle about the power.  :motonoises: :motonoises:
