might try my free "Bike" mag pressure gauge next meeting - oops too late, the bin lorry has already been

What is race preparation (does putting it in & out of the trailer count) or Yoga classes

Just wondering Pete - if you run very low pressure like that, is it any more likely to spin on the rim?

Not had a problem yet, in the pic versus Hayabusa i was down at 8 psi which is par for the track - Shakespeare County Raceway can vary from 10 - 16 psi depending on track prep. Mickey Thompson drag tyres are a bit dodge at low pressures as the sidewalls flex which can induce a high speed tankslapper.

Older bikes running tubes have to be more careful - I do remember my Guzzi LeMans valve had shifted after a couple of runs.

Only once have I gone for a blat without resetting the pressure - first roundabout was certainly interesting

Hope you were wearing your brown leathers...

Thanks for the info. I'll come down and watch you early next season.

Or have a go - talk to Dave Hobbs about his experience of an NSA sprint.

Crescent Suzuki (Bursledon) have excelled themselves today when I went scrounging for two used rear tyres. After finding two suitable cadidates, Dan said I could have his part worn Pirelli Supercorsa Pro (front & rear) fitted for the usual deal price - he'd been saving them for his own project.
A Michellin Pilot One went on the other rear and some more stickywear was located for future use - fantastic help - thank you chaps.
Just need to blag a used drag slick from an NSA mate for experimentation.

To top it all, a conversation with Shaun has now led to his mate having a look at my bike this Sat with a view to him & Shaun doing all the fabrication work I need as descibed in this thread. Last sprint meet I found a Dyno specialist in setting up NOS systems & an NSA mate to help plumb & wire all the gizmos - all in all three days of very productive work.
Only slight snag is where the money is coming from

Once again many thanks to Dan, Shaun & Andy of Crescent Suzuki Bursledon

I'm thinking about that Pete, but would like to just spectate first time.

Good luck with all the work - sounds like you're getting well organised already!

Pity.........

It looks like we have seen the last of the Drag Monster on SW and Annual Meet rideouts then. Pity! It was always interesting to follow. But then, so is the trike.

Every time I start thinking the world is all bad, then I start to think there's people out there having fun on motorcycles, then it makes me take another look.

Ta for that Pete - shame the credit limit was only fifty quid & just covered me fags

Dave - I'm gonna MOT it the day before stripping the bike (in a couple of weeks) so maybe it will be out on the Annual Rally covered by that ticket

HOT ROD TANK

Took the bike down to Crescent (Bursledon) for Shaun & his mate to evaluate the mods I require - so I thought I'd mock up the tank how I want it to look -(bear in mind I only used gaffer tape & cardboard) this will just be an outer shell covering a small 3-5 ltr ally job & leaves loadsa room for NOS/Fuel Solenoids and velocity stacks.

Bit of bad news from engineer "Stinky" was that my swingarm has started deforming from this years exploits & some serious rectification + bracing will be needed prior to running NOS - just hope it doesn't snap next weekend at the last of season sprint. I gather that he wouldn't ride it as it is - wooz (hospital grub ain't bad these days)

Plan to MOT the bike - DRAGONOS - prior to strip so I can test out mods as we go

And two mins later I'd finished it

Tomorrow is pipes, rad, pegs & other bracketry off & templates made up for locating all the NOS & Airshift etc + set ride height two inch lower before swingarm comes out for surgery

decided to make up own small ally fairing & rear tail unit, so it'll really look low & mean

You have to pass an annual inspection for a non-road-legal bike every year?
