Posted in the "Mark your Calender" thread I had alot of trouble with my bike getting ready for a Motorcycle only Drag Racing Event...here is what I posted:
The night before I wasn’t even sure if I would be able to race I needed to prep the bike the day before like adding my racing rim that has different gearing and other things like cleaning, removing license plate, straps etc etc.
During the prep I found my chain has a Tight Spot meaning when you turn the wheel on the rear stand it gets tight in a certain spot. Then I noticed my front tire was bald in the center I guess those 1k runs back and forth to LA wore it down fast and didn’t notice it
Then I still needed a chain guard 18” long so had to fabricate something fast. Then fell victim to the famous slow down off the kickstand and the bike fell down and broke my shift peg in half….I was up to 1;30am to make the race where testing started at 10:00am.
I swapped the pegs from right to left to at least have something, built a chain guard loosen the chain a lot to make sure that tight spot or what ever it was didn’t rob to much HP.
And to my surprised passed Tech got to do many runs with little problems(unless you count running out of gas on one of them
and also got a New personal best today as well.
