If my Bike's on fire the only thing I'm grabbing is the cell phone to call the insurance agent.
I tried to rebuild a bike that had burned Once!
Call the insurance man!

Really!

Well, you can use your extinguisher to put it out.

I think alcohol is the only remedy for this one.

That sounds like an intermittent short. Had that in a car one time, tore half of it apart trying to find out where. Finally pulled a new hot wire from the brake light switch to the rear. Before that, I was driving around with a pack of fuses in my ashtray. If I hit a big bump, the fuse would blow. Could not recreate with a wiggle test at home.

Talking I Rode to Monticello Kart Track

The weather lifted late morning and off I went. I ended up next to the Ocala Gran Prix tent.



Looking inside you could see this:



This guy is my son, Tim.



Tim on grid, ready for the prefinal:



Another pic of the grid forming up:



Tim won his final, but was penalized 1 second for a race start infraction. He didn't commit said infraction, but the appeals process was stacked in favor of FKCS. He had to settle for 2nd.

I rode home and cooled off after the event, proud of my 17 year old for handling himself like an adult through the whole thing.

Use to run a V1, saved me from a few tickets when I use to speed. Had one ticket when a cop was running in Pop mode. Would have been fine but I was the only car around so it never registered.

Thanks Sanjoh, I see the guy that was offering the Harmonizer is MIA or something. I decided to make a home made one and give it a try.

Did you go for the tag?
