Re: Honda MG & MF 750

Hi Johno, Fuel flow tests sounds good, I switched to two separate outlets on the custom tank I built just to be sure. Here's a pic from Bonneville 2014 for your viewing pleasure ... she was an unrefined beast! http://www.russelllowe.com/DLRA/CB750/CB750_Bonneville_2014.jpg My Dyna setup was new in 2...

Re: Honda MG & MF 750

Hi Johnno, I have an optical digital ignition and a car type coil for the SOHC CB750 ... I put my Dynotek in the bin after a brand new setup started to fail and then failed completely over two years at Bonneville. Happy to send it to you to try out if you like. I also found that when one side of the...

Re: FEET FORWARD AG1350

Hey Harky, Quick thought, will make a model tomorrow to see if it may work, but how about sliding your ass forward, shoulders drop, knees up and use your shins as wind deflectors; like a baby in a womb ... Would necessitate shifting your steering forward, and be one further step up the queerness lad...

Re: FEET FORWARD AG1350

Ha! Yeah, been a bit quiet alright ... big changes at work, might free up some time in the near future if things work out. Yeah, the 181mph on my beastie was at half throttle, any more than that and it felt like I was gonna blow off the thing. No bum rest and footpegs too far forward to really use m...

Re: FEET FORWARD AG1350

Great pics Harky!

Have you considered a wee wind deflector to take the pressure off your chest/shoulders or uplift on your helmet (wind getting under the chin might be what Ronni is referring to).

Cheers!

Re: theTRUTH

Hi Y.B. Thanks for the info, I chose -3AN guided by the fitting that came with the hydraulic slave cylinder from Quartermaster. The advantage of my new hydraulic jack master cylinder is that it can move as much fluid as the jacks fluid reservoir can hold ... which is quite a bit more than usual ... ...

Re: theTRUTH

Hi Guys, Well, it works ... but put up a bit of a fight! Would have been easier if I actually knew how hydraulics worked. The first thing I tried was simply welding on a "fitting" to the end nut that holds the reservoir on as well as guiding the end of the ram. It wasn't very nice steel to weld, but...

Re: theTRUTH

Hi Guys, I'm still not happy with my clutch actuation ... the cheapy 12v electric scissor jack motor and gear worked, but was too slow - about 4 second to fully lock up, but another 16 seconds to release completely. I think it would have been ok for this year, but I wanted a faster acting solution. ...

Re: theTRUTH

Hey Harky, What's with the serious reply!?! Just because the world is caving in doesn't mean we have to get all serious ... imagine where that might get us. Yeah, I figure confused/turbulent water is water that wants to give up more heat voluntarily. More surface area with those long pipes too aye. ...

Re: theTRUTH

Thanks Tyrant! Yeah, really disappointing, we might find out today if Speedweek 2020 will be rescheduled to November ... I have my fingers crossed! Until then though, I'm trying my best to keep cool ... Here's a video showing the new radiator plumbing to tidy up the right hand side of the bike where...

Re: Speed Week 2020

I'm an emotional wreck!

This is like that legal case study where if someone is falling off a tall building and I shoot them in the head on the way down am I still guilty of murder?

I haven't seen the question regarding rescheduling to November, I'm definitely keen though.

Cheers

Re: theTRUTH

Hi Guys, After sinking into a virus induced depression I've finally pulled myself together enough to put the fairing on the bike and shoot a walk around video: https://youtu.be/1Lz7fYMuc0I (head straight to 3 minutes 30 to hear her start up) http://www.russelllowe.com/PhD/theTRUTH/theTRUTH_2020_Walk...

Re: theTRUTH

Hi Guys, Once again ... down to the wire! Motor is back in and been running a few times; didn't make the kid cry this year ... I did shed a wee tear though, like it rose from the dead.
