Thanks Bobby!

I forgot to also thank Bobby Gravely (4 stroke expert 95B), who stopped by to visit on Saturday afternoon and ended up helping me sort out the shock preload and axle spacers. Thanks Bobby!

Video Links

Here are a couple of video links from Chehalis, the first one was done by my crew chief Randy and the second one is from my daughter's boyfriend Brad,

Randy's video (a bit corny at times!!)

Brad's video (cool music)

These both give a sense of the track's size, it was pretty long, what you would call a "horsepower" track, When we first walked the track I was a little worried at how high the speeds might be, but AHRMA veteran Don Matthews assured me that as the track got rougher the speeds would come down, he was right!

Finally got around to weighing the bike, using two old school bathroom scales. Just as it rolled off the track, it weighed a svelte 297 lbs. (give or take a few pounds either way). The target weight for next spring is 280.

Why can't you just accept her as she is. She is big-boned, she's never going to be an Elsinore. You know what guys did back in the day to lesson the weight of their SL350? They bought an XL350 as soon as they could

Big Girls

OC, you know I prefer "my girls" to have a little meat on their bones, not some hyper skinny little twig like an Elsinore! Besides, the twin gives me a challenge to make it competitive and will be all the more satisfying if and when I ever win a race on it. Right now I have the best of all worlds, if I do poorly it is the bikes fault and if I do well I get the credit!

Hi LC Garage,

Make sure and take the survey on the AHRMA NW web site.

Thanks,

Dave

I'm having trouble navigating the new AHRMA website, do you have a link to the survey?

Thanks!

New Addition to Barn Fresh Stable

Brought home a new addition to the Barn Fresh stable today. Bought an SL100 for my daughter to vintage race. Fairly clean with some nice pieces, but the wiring looks like it was done by Edward Scissor-Hands!







It is supposed to have a fresh bore, but does not run due to electrical issues. The goal is to have the bike ready for next summer, my daughter will ride & race when on leave from the Air Force. Stay tuned for updates!

SL100 & SL350 updates

Have been working on the SL100 as time allows, trying to decipher the wiring and finally realized the reason the prior owner and his friends could not get the bike wired or running. It had an AC coil instead of the correct DC coil. It had been at a small shop for a fresh bore and piston and the owner went out of business, returning the bike in non running condition with an assortment of parts and evidently gave them the wrong coil. I ordered the correct coil, put it on, and the wiring began to fall in place and it now has spark. The carb is in pretty rough shape, had a broken drain screw lodged in the bowl so I tried a bowl from the SL350 carbs and it was a perfect fit. Put some fuel in it and it runs (although a little rough) but at least now I have a starting point. My daughter has also spent a few hours rubbing and scrubbing the many years of accumulated grime off of it and it is starting to look a little better.



On the SL350 front, I have a pair of new 30mm Mikunis coming from OC and found a 1974 Yamaha rear wheel that fits and will give lighter unsprung weight, have many other ideas and am getting excited to tear the bike down and get started on a thorough overhaul for both reduced weight, more power and a little cleaner appearance. Stay tuned.
