Im 66.75 now. I have to go a minimum of +4 just to run the new arm so I will probably make it an even 72. We do not have a wheelbase limit in the classes I run out here. Probably also going to drop rear to a 46 or 44. That will help shorten chain.

Just eyeballed it all up...

69.5 minimum with buell s3 trees.
71 is roughly middle of adjuster range.
73 is max with chain still having adjustment room for stretch...

After a year of messing with the super d carb it all came down to running a two step to get the carb to hold rpm. Pretty excited

Stiffened up the chain guard as well with a high speed sprocket cover.

Next is to tackle the tank shell, going to make a good mold and make a fibreglass shell. Should shed a few pounds from the steel shell.

Got rid of the steel seat pan, going to paint this black, should blend well with the fender and add support.


Should save a pound from the old harness.
Ordered aluminum bungs to make another oil tank, should save a couple more pounds there.
The battery will be the biggest weight savings. 11 down to 3.5 pounds.

Should all add up to a tenth quicker this season.
