    I like them both, the cvt is great for the street and daily use and really like the way it performs on my BTR.

    high rpms cause a lot of crankcase pressure. i've seen motors puke half their oil out at the drag strip blowing gaskets and seals and filters. sometimes causing oil fire's. how about a breather drilled through the oil fill cap. or make 1 or 3 on your lathe? [huh.. scotto]

    Youtube of the bike running. http://www.youtube.com/user/WOLFCREATIVECUSTOMS?feature=watch

    Raced the bike on the 16th @ Adams track, very pleased with how it ran. Had some chain issues and wanted to thank Dennis (DMB) for the help and a big thanks to Venice Motor Bikes for the parts to keep it racing.

    Yeah, it's great to see a father and son racing together and against one another in the same race. I raced with my dad in a few desert races way back when. I've got 4 sons myself, none race with or against me but I'm ok with that as I don't need anymore competition than I'm already up against.....trust me ;)

    I really want too thank everyone who helped me make it to the finals when I blew the exhaust pipe off my bike in the second superbike heat race! Dennis, Neil, the guy parked behind me (sorry, I don't think I caught your name) and all the others. This is what really made my night as a situation arose that would normally be the end of racing that day, turned around with the determination and wit of several people I was able to weld the pipe back together with bubblegum and a spent ale can to go on and race the final event.

    Thanks friends (and opponents), I was able to finish 5th place overall and third of the gas bikes. Hmmm, third? Is that like #3?

    And a I must also thank Baird for putting on this event, had a fun time and enjoyed the track and fellow racers as always.

    Wanna Race?

    EDIT: My apologies Jeff, seems I forgot which forum I was posting in and got a little carried away. Hope you don't mind as I'm not gonna double post on my rant. See ya Bro. U know who?
