Thanks man..........I didn't take any onboard vids like I sometimes do, but there were quite a few photographers/videographers there so I'm sure something will come up. It was a blast and a lot of really good competition!

I rode mine to town to get a new watch and some snacks. People at the Walmart seemed to like it (tanaka bike in my album). One shopper got my number to talk about building him one. I hope he will take me up on my offer. I won't work for free, but I'll do a lot of work for my fee, and give him a bike that I would ride.

Drop that 44 down to at 32/36, for more *cough* mileage
I bought the engine ported and polished as the rock solid team ported both intake and and exhaust ports + the internal scavengers, so it was done when i bought it, if i where with a new engine and bought the reeds i would port the intake port quite a bit & make it a square shape as that also improves the low end, port the exhaust if you add something like a aftermarket pipe a square exhaust port will assist with the torque at low - mid and a ported oval shape will help with high rpm. quick answer is no you wont realy need to mod your transfer ports if you got them, but it would help maybe give 2% more the fact that they dont let a return pulse through is the whole idea

im looking at a shift kit, as the only thing left to do is get a new ignition system, the team at rock solid is working on a whole new magnet design and cdi once i have that i literally have run out of upgrades maybe nitrous?i know for a fact im pushing 8-12hp

Congratulations on your win, Scotto-! I am not surprised to hear that your 2 wheeled rocket carried you at light speed around the course, and I know you have the skills to pilot it well.

Me, I'm still brazing my new tank together. All I'll say is this: Alumiweld can be tricky stuff. You gotta do it right, or you get to do it over. And apparently I'm not done learning how to work the stuff well.
I'll have a bit of grinding to do also; my beads are strong but they are NOT pretty. Kinda lumpy and irregular. S'aright though, I keep telling myself I'm gaining experience, as well as making more work for myself.
It'll be a pretty solid tank when I'm done though (if I haven't retired by then).

PS. Yet another good reason for me not taking any pictures: I'd hate to tempt the more experienced welders here into pointing and laughing. By the time anybody outside of me sees the tank, it'll have paint on it.

Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

today, outside of visiting the forum a coupla times to check on saturday's race pictures and stuff, i did absolutely nothing with motored bikes today. didn't even look in the garage.

tomorrow i need to buy and install a fuel line for my daily rider.

after working on my bike all day at the track, then breaking the frame in practice, i kinda don't give a crap about my bikes right now.

it'll pass, though. no worries...
