I was originally going to use that centrifugal clutch set up but I had this cheapo torque converter already so I'm seeing how I like it. So the AGK calculator says my gearing is 11.111. Do you have any recommendations for gearing so It doesn't always want to pull the front wheel off the ground on take off? I'm also working on figuring out jetting on this so I can tune my carb correctly. I drilled it enough to kick over and idle but once it's warm I need to turn in the idle adjustment or she dies and when cold I have to back it out or it takes off on me
Thanks for any advise!
Thank you for sharing you build and putting in the time and effort that it takes to get it right. The gearing is much easier than the jetting to get right, that's for sure.
I really like running 11.11:1 for my tall gearing so to speak. With the TC set-up it worked great and did keep the front wheel down a little easier than lower gearing. With my current set-up that is about as tall of gearing I can use at the track and get away with as the tracks are fairly short and tight.
Ratios of between 10.41:1 and 12:1 are what I play with on this race bike,it really depends on the track and the conditions. Jetting on the other hand is whole different ball of wax to deal with as elevation changes things as well. Just experiment and take notes with making changes in small increments.....be very patient no matter what, it will pay off in no time.
