Default Anyone go racing last weekend?




Set the clutch this spring and never touched it. Pretty consistent 1.70’s leaving at 3k and whacking the throttle. Gonna grind some more spring this winter and attempt to leave at higher rpm’s. Would like to get the tach to 4500 and not drop below that and stay consistent. Front wheel hovered nice for first gear most of the year

The 120” on hold for now?

Matt running next year?

So many questions haha
Keeping the street bike as is for me to have something to race. Matt will be on the 120” next year when his schedule allows. Going back to the 7 inch tire for him next season. Having trouble keeping a crankshaft in it. Got a new crank ready and changing the build a little. I can’t be rebuilding the crank every 25/30 passes. Trying to find a happier combo. He said it was close but I’m not happy with it. I’ll figure it out.
