I agree with using the microfiche for pricing, but for a full matching set might go a little over 50%. You need to do the total first though. 50% sounds low, but it may add up to $3,000 even at 50%.

Great cross-post Flug. I agree with it completely and like that it comes from a pro level MXer.

If the carbs are on the bike and those fall out they end up in the float bowl. If the carbs are opened up and you are messing with them you should have the intakes covered so NOTHING can fall in.

That's a pretty good read giving the historical basics about the COTA facility. It also paints a picture of Bernie being so stingy with money that he hurts the series in the long run.
