Just installed my dyna shift minder. Was easy as Hell. Cant wait for trying it out tonight.

Also welded some plate on the footpeg bracket to tighten it up so i dident flex.

I have had problems with missing gears. So hopefully i can do good tonight at the track.

Thank you, was a great leaning experience and figured out a few changes I need to make. It was the first time having the new build on the 1/4 mile. Gearing is a little tall right now, shifting into 5th somewhere between the end of the 1/8 and the mid of 1/4. 19/45 rear. Currently have a 34T crank primary side, considering going to a 30T and see if that has be shifting into 5th a bit sooner. Other issue is the seat, having trouble with sliding back to far and not staying planted in the position I would like to stay in. Going to modify my seat and build up the foam a bunch to make more of a stop out of it and keep me more up on the tank. Front suspension settings made a huge difference also, was running comp/rebound on the softest settings on the forks and it wasnt lifting at all but had a lot of movement in the forks. Went full stiff and it started pulling the tire about 2ft off the ground. Just need to find its sweet spot not.
But yea it sucks it was rained out, but give me an excuse to go back in September, finish these rounds, and race again for the finals.

Going from a 34 to a 30 tooth sprocket was worth around .15+ in e.t. when we made the change. Seems to rev a little quicker. We needed more clutch spring rate in our slick and bar set up but we don’t hand clutch, just throw it away.
