Default Re: 40 MPH Club

Same as mine pretty much... the bike is a $79 pawn shop special and the engine is a Dax bottom with the top end from another engine, stock NT carb, Fred head, and a modified KTM pipe... still running the 44 tooth sprocket here too but was able to hit 41mph on a stretch of flat straight road. I did spend a good amount of time with getting the porting and squish clearance just right and the power comes on very smooth and linear, not peaky at all. My next move will be to add a 20mm Tillotson carb for better midrange and top end, and hopefully a few more mph before I switch to a higher geared rear sprocket so I can reduce my cruise rpm to under the 8k mark.
