That's why I am fixing on buying a tig welded first chance I get, that way I can do all the welding myself. Ever since I got my small mig, I've been using it for just about everything, its paid for itself.

For ferrous metals I can get it done, but TIG'ing aluminum is a perishable skill..... if I don't practice it a lot I tend to lose my touch. With all the other crap I end up doing, I ended up welding AL the least and just didn't have time for it.... I sold my TIG welder years ago to my little brother. I would love to have the time to devote to it, but I end up on the the other machines too much to get it in, but times like these make me want to get back in to practice, no doubt.

long time, no update....

Soooo.... a little picture update. Got the new ECU wired up and in the bike, working out a new base tune on the full sequential fuel and spark set up, and getting all the bugs worked out on speed sensors, angle sensors, fuel pressure, boost-by-gear, etc. Fun stuff, but data heavy and takes a lot of time without a dyno.

Got it painted too.... satin black with a bit of pearl... looks just like the OEM frame does in the sunlight.

On a much cooler note, I'm getting the opportunity to go to Speed Week @ Bonneville this year. After reading the rulebook tonight, though, there are going to be a couple asinine rules that will prevent me from even attempting to run in class where I can challenge a record... but it will still be awesome to learn how to run out there..... maybe next year I can be a little more prepared to compete.

Looks pretty cool with the LSR fender on it, though. :)

....LSR rules say the chainguard has to be at least 1/8" thick aluminium, 1.5X wider than the chain, and run from the back edge of the rear sprocket to the centerline of the front sprocket. It didn't say anything about having to look bad-ass, but we did that anyway. :)

Do you plan on painting it to match or leave it unfinished? Either way looking good, ditto on waiting to hear how the runs go!

The more you learn, the more you realize how little you know.

...I honestly don't know. I was going to paint it, but the bike is so murdered out at this point that it makes a nice contrast... I think I'm going to clean it up a little more and give it that unidirectional brush finish.
