Re: Speed Week 2020

Hi Greg, A tough call and I guess it will come down to practicalities in the end. Running two events close together will require a lot of coordination and logistical challenges I hear what Ronnie says about the FIM costs but at the end of the day we should try to hold the event when the conditions a...

Re: theTRUTH

Hi Russ, the D2954 is what I've been using for years with no issues. It fits to a 15" rim which opens your options and the OD is same as hayabusa which means your ratios will be OK. These tyres do grow by up to 2" at speed even when pumped to 100 psi. The guys at North Terrace Tyres are good to deal...

Re: theTRUTH

Wow, great progress and looks definitely within reach to hit the salt March 3rd Firing it up for the first time will be nerve wracking I'm sure. Im in the same boat with wiring on my beast - new loom to be completed, full motec system set up then dyno etc etc. Let me know if you want to share pit ar...

Re: theTRUTH

All quiet Russ.... I am assuming you are buried under as the clock ticks closer to launch date.
It will be good to see the bike in whatever state its in.

Re: theTRUTH

Hi Russell, Heat exchanger in the tank works perfect on my bike. Norm from Aussie Desert Coolers did an awesome job making it up for me. I also use the tank water to cool the water to air intercooler and capacity of 25 litres works ok. That way I can use water wetter in the motor cooling system and ...

Re: theTRUTH

Hi Russell, Progress looking great The outriggers I stuck on my bike worked better than expected I opted for simple pneumatic cylinders operated via a 12v 5-port solenoid valve. Wired to a simple thumb switch it worked a treat. I faced the wheels to retract forward and upwards so when I drop them ba...

Re: theTRUTH

Hi Russell, Good concept on the build - you have a few hours ahead in the workshop. Building a bike on low budget just means it takes longer but also gives you time to rationalise and perfect your ideas. Laying down in front of the motor is the way to go - you have reduced the frontal area by 30% - ...

Rob,

No worries - we can throw it in the container with the 4 bikes comin back from Speedweek and BUB's.
Do you need it collected from somewhere or delivered to where we can collect?
Cheers
Richard

Norm at Aussie Desert Coolers made a great Radiator for my turbo busa which I subsequently fitted a Craigs and Davies electric pump to. The whole set-up has given me the most consistent cooling yet. You will need to slightly modify the thermostat - drill a hole in it.
