    My Harley’s got 1300 cc’s. That’s 100 cc’s more, so I should be able to handle this, right?

    Just kidding.

      Double up the assless leather chaps and you’ll be just fine.

      • DAVID

        one in front and the other in back?

      • Stuart

        JAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJA!!!!!!! Ohhh man :)))))

  • Mike

    Cool. Did they do one of those for the aircooled 2V model?
    I, uh, have some extra parts leftover.

    • Kevin

      Do what I do: toss them in your toolbag and roll on.

  • oldblue

    Impressive.

    But I was hoping for a build from the crank up! That engine didn’t assemble itself so much as just put its clothes back on.

      Meh, I was expecting much more too. Heck, the bolts don’t even have threads, so they just slide right in! Someone got lazy with the modelling–Since all the pieces are there, we need a ‘real’ assembly vid.

        +1. And a hell of a lot better soundtrack where you don’t have to hit mute the first 5 seconds.

        Like OMG that engine is put together with HANDS, thats soooo last millenium! Clearly EBR needs the magical engine creator with the threadless bolts in order to win.

        HFL covered that one too (and I agree, it’s much cooler): http://hellforleathermagazine.com/2011/04/video-building-an-ebr-1190rs/

    • The other Joe

      Yeah, that was really only the last 10% of the assembly.

      • Nick

        Seems like they tried to limit the depth to where most owners will stop: basic maintenance. Lame.

  • CG

    Do they have one these things so I can figure out how to put my *&^&%&^ fairing back on my CBR?

    • JVictor75

      Hahahahahaha. I feel ya man. Or better yet:

      “Do they have one of these things so I can figure out how to put my *&^&%&^ fairing back on my CBR without it cracking all to shit and making it look like it was assembled by ADD-riddled meth head?”

  • Glenngineer

    So hard right now.

  • Stuart

    That video blows.
