Re: It lives

Hey Harkey Yep valuable but expensive lesson learnt. After Waikerie I made sure that I could fit the original CDI unit if I had any more problems so I have a plan B. I wasnt sure it was the Zeel but wasnt going to take a chance. Again not the Zeel's fault but mine. Perhaps they missed a fried compon...

Re: It lives

Pete AKA Salt Peter has a pic of Paul Penny with a sign like they use at the golf "QUITE" that he held up when Pete started his bike a cpl of years ago.

Ill grab some ear plugs from work for anyone that feels the need to muffle the lovely sound of a cpl of 250's at FULL NOISE. :lol:

Re: It lives

I think it was Dave on the start line had a DB Meter last year. The bike was 112 DB warming up on the line with him standing 1 mtr in front of it. These pipes are a bit quieter, I think becaust of the 1mm material compared t the 0.7mm of my old pipes. Sounds like we are all on track for next year. 2...

Re: It lives

Just got the bike fired up today. Gave it a run on unleaded then a run on Methanol, then a purge on unleaded again. The neighbours must love this time of the year. :lol:

Re: Salt Shaker T500

Yep, what Pete said. I would be aiming for 12.1 or richer to start with. You can always lean it out after a run. Lot easier and cheaper to replace a fouled plug than a piston or two. And lots of the best quality oil you can get as well. Ive seen 1245 F on my EGT after a successful run. But all motor...

Re: Salt Shaker T500

Not sure about Air Cooled temps but my advice is LOTS OF FUEL.

Have you got CHT gauges as well as EGT?
