I don't think this will buff out

hand is bit sore when the steering stop bent over and the handlebar pushed my hand into the tank, which then started leaking...

Otherwise a good weekend, its not everyday you battle a Rob North Trident , Maney Commando and win.
The Classic Club hires out the short track that has bugger all straights, generally I never get to use 5th gear.
This was the first time I have been there since doing my 'Dirk' mods to the squish band.
For a few races I only used first and second to get off the line and did the whole race in 3rd gear. Could out pull the Trident and Commando out of corners and the rev limiter did not kick in on the 200 metre straight.
Next step is fit the cam I got off Dirk and see how that goes

I wouldn't be surprised if that valve cover started leaking sometime in the future. it looks ground down to a paper thinness that will undoubtedly not last very long.

Hope the hand heals fast.

If you've never crashed, you've never tried hard enough :)

Hope you heal quickly and well. Weld an aluminum sacrificial slug onto those valve covers......or little wheels.

The positive is that you can now lean further.
At the same time it becomes harder to impress your peers with scraped covers.

Thanks, amazingly the hand is fine,
looking at welding plates on now that I have a touchdown template.
Might look at raising the engine a bit more " German Style"

Much mo better to use silicone to attach wear pad.
Easier to remove and replace.

The silicone wont hold during a touchdown. Weld them on.
