Please check your rotor magnets and jbweld them, if you haven't already. Check your suspension; if it's stock and lowered, I'd assume you're going to be bottoming out a *lot* unless you don't weigh much. And of utmost importance: make sure your chain is in tip-top shape and stays that way! I know a guy who's chain broke on a mildly gnarly hill climb due to lack of appropriate chain maintenance...and has a bent output shaft to show for it. Full motor teardown necessary to fix it!
I'm super excited for you and can't wait to hear your ride reports! Are you planning on posting your adventures somewhere?
Full disclosure: I've never done any of the BDR, let alone on a Vee, but have been wondering lately if it's possible, so take my suggestions with a grain of salt. :-)
