Tempting, tempting, pity the seller only has 99.3% positive feed back or I'd be in like Flinn

Just got home & am catching up. It's all a bit over my head. Was originally going to get 1 1/2 pipes. The Stan Shenton bible recommended 1 3/4 with a length of 37", the US flat trackers used 1 3/4 . The zorst man & I figured 1 1/2 would be OK then he had a couple of people who know Triumphs say 1 3/4 is better so that is what we went with. Totally unscientific , I guess I will soon find out. Got a whole weekend at home so hopefully it will be a runner on Sunday.

Zorsts are damn tricky things for sure. Once you start to grasp the science of them you realise they aint just pipes that shoot burnt shit backwards .
However unless you are grasping at the handle of the Americas Cup (not likley on a bike) or are racing Formula one super bikes, milli seconds are not as critical as some would have us believe .
Which brings in the "Clint" system of exhaust physic,s Big pipes really do look phat
And thats all we need to know

I feel like I've sold out. It's not the same. I kind of like it, guess I'll see how it goes during testing. Sue says it looks like I'm getting serious

Yup , Winston is a runner, started almost instantly , no smoke , carbs need a bit of balancing , there is a noise in the clutch somewhere, he is back on the stand for some detail work . I'll have a look next time I'm home, can't spend the whole weekend in the man cave, gotta have some family time now & maybe a celebratory beer .

An optical delusion . It's the battery for the rollers.

I kinda like the wide bars, but how about going for a compromise of some slightly narrower bars with no rise?

Cheers

Wide bars worked for Crosby, although he was pushing some heavy wide bikes through corners. They work for me too - I don't think I could go back to narrow bars again...I can't even remember off hand the last bike I had with narrow bars.
