209.28 MPH at Maxton - Naked

Hey folks, just got back from Maxton this weekend http://www.ecta-lsr.com/ and broke into the exclusive 200 club - naked - (unfaired).

Running about 11psi boost on Saturday, I ran 196, 197, then leaned it out a smidge and ran 200.39. The record at the start of the day was 183, so in breaking a record over 200mph, I got in to the '2 club' - for Maxton (ECTA). Not too many have done it without a fairing, or on a 1000cc.

Sunday morning I put in the 1 bar (14.7psi) spring, knowing that I had done what I needed to, and now I could break something and still be happy. Without intercooling (w/a cooler dry) and with a stock head and valves, and stock ign timing, 15psi is kinda pushing it, even with good fuel and pistons (10.5:1). Intake temps logged at about 220F.

In the morning the air was cool and pretty dry, and the headwind from Sat was gone. It was very hard to control going through the gears, front end was coming up in 4th (with 19/37 gearing), but I got into 6th and got as small as I could, passing through the traps at about 12K, shiftlight on, *windy as hell*. Motor was fine, AFR was too lean, 12.4, intake temps too hot, 250+, and rear sprocket teeth were hammered, I trailered it and quit while I was ahead.

With water in the intercooler, my good head, and some more tuning, I'll go back in late June and try again - woohoo!

Pics tomorrow if you guys like.

Dean

Thanks guys. The wind is extreme - you have to accept that you cannot focus, and try and be as small as possible. My arms, neck, wrists, and back are sore, my skin is bruised in places where leathers pull and twist at speed. I don't notice it during the run, I'm just trying to hit my shifts and hold it WOT. 209 was a good bit more intense than 200. It's a real rush.
