that's a good idea. making power is less than half the battle, from what i hear. being able to see when you are slipping will help, i think.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------


tempered steels for sale... make offer.



digging through the clutch boneyard i came up with some steels that were less abused and an extra friction



and just started stuffing plates in the basket until it was full...



seems to work ok. just needs to last till next week.

--------------------------------------

i have gone down the old $20 parts from the hardware store home built clutch tool and i tell you what, the $65 i spent on the Jim's clutch tool is amongst the best money i have ever spent.

my grasp of the obvious can be slow sometimes....

i am starting to less suspect my launch technique and leaning towards my engine just pulling through the clutch when on boost. imagine that.

Put more oil in there!!!! Extra 300cc it makes the difference in saving clutches. Take a look in how the busa guys when lean their bike the right at the drag strip.

ghetto clutch is dragging. i guess i should have prepped the plates. not even going to worry about it. i can wait, i have other things to do.

like my job

and...... working out race trim.

stock busa top plate for mounting bars.










ohlin damper donated to the build by jason.

all that is left to do is steering lock. the bottom tree has nubs so i will just make a plate that uses the damper center bolt. that way it can be changed/removed when not needed.






so, with this step i am diverging from the 'ride it in off the street and race' direction of the build because i am also going to need rear-rear-rear-all-the-way-rear sets but i am going to try to make everything quick-change convertible like...

thanks for turning that stock down for me Jason.


you know i have to start a new thread for the race pron...

imma waitin on the clutch - pretty much down until it gets here as i just don't have the heart to pull that primary cover.

so.. as you saw, i pulled my badass t-bars and mounted the busa top plate.

i had to dimple the bars and got all the controls/switches installed.

then i looked over on the bench at the Deutsche connector kit that has been mocking me for the last 2 months and decided it was time for a 'real' wiring harness.

with the right tools, hooking up Deutsche connectors is real easy.

with all the extra gear on the bike there are a LOT of connectors so i started by arranging the connectors on the backbone staggered so the tank can straddle them and taping them into place, then routing and cutting.

it's coming out quite nice. i will take some pics tomorrow when i finish.
