Just run 2 small ones then so you get 4cm of turbo simulation noise...

Makes me want my talon back

Had a compound turbo setup using a stock 14b turbo ported and reworked to feed an 82mm FP black. 

Gave me nearly 650 at the wheels at around 480tq of Awd goodness

That's not bad...This ole truck is pushing nearly double that...

@mossriderthem Top Fuel dragsters are a work of art... they run at the local drag( US131 dragway- full legit 1/4 mile) strip a few times a year- seeing/hearing/feeling/smelling in person cannot be replicated on TV... if nothing  goes wrong/breaks, they can rebuild the motor and clutch in 30-45mins and each run is approx $7-10k in parts/fuel/supplies...

Since I didn't care to watch a man justify his 32.25 million dollar contract to coach a college team (gophers vs Penn St) I went into the shop instead. Down to the last nut and bolt again for cleaning, inspection and a motor swap.

I just may try to sneak an aluminum subframe past the warden.

Suspension going to Trackside Labs. Head is off at TWF.

IMG_20191109_160854.thumb.jpg.479427c03c529ccb285a07ac556325ee.jpg

Notice the length of table. It has an OSHA approved visegrip on the one end. To lazy to add extension, what could possibly go wrong?

IMG_20191109_161206.thumb.jpg.a8daddff9434ea4be1049eb802e335f7.jpg

That's about it for off season upgrade madness this year, sigh.

So I was messing around in the shop (surprise) and I took a quick vid. This gives a good idea how much the chain slack is affected by the vertical movement of the swingarm. For those that think that tighter is better watch closely. It is very easy to get it too tight. Tight can have a negative effect on shifting and rideability at least. And a disastrous effect on hard parts and safety at worst.

Note: this is on an FZ07 race bike with raised suspension so it's somewhat exaggerated but the principle is the same. Be careful and follow the manual specifications closely.

It’s feckin awesome in person, New Jersey and grand nationals @ Gainesville, reverberates you entire body. Man can they tear a motor down and rebuild it Fast. In addition the smell of nitro- methane is something you’ll never forget.

A little bit of nonsense from the shop. 

I made a headstock lift from an old rear stand and some scrap. This allows me to hold the front of the bike up without interfering with forks or the tripples. You can see the top part of it in the first pic bellow. 

IMG_20191113_214051.thumb.jpg.f6764033232c7d527dee8faf4631d19f.jpg

Tore the front end apart to get the old steering bearings out to be replaced with tapered roller style bearings. The bearings weren't horrible but it was time for an upgrade.

While in there mucking around I drilled and tapped the steering stops so I could replace my high tech stuck on wheel weights with proper threaded stops.

IMG_20191110_144534.thumb.jpg.5e7210469bd2ba02917ed7861a15a480.jpg

This sucka gonna be a new bike again come spring.

The amount of steering travel the stock FZ07 has is nuts!  

My thoughts are steering stops could help a bike to not go from a slide to a tumble in a crash, saving further damage.

Safety too. Keeps the controls from interfering with the fairings or the fuel tank during headshake or manuevering around the pits.¬† i.e. your brake lever from getting slammed on or clutch from being disengaged when they contact the inner edge of the fairings or hands trapped between bars and tank during crash type stuff ūüöĎ

Here's a pic of my new headstand,

IMG_20191114_172854.thumb.jpg.7c8c8f9bac63760c941a40a626bcc9a2.jpg

Kinda neat, it clears the front wheel and the forks, triples, brakes and even slips in behind the front stand to make it so easy to lift/swap/work on stuff.

Wife's hollerin about not being able to find her shepherds hook now, lol. 

 

And a pic of BLR's corporate office,

I made a little tail jig to hold the rear of the bike in such a fashion I would be able to remove everything for repairs or maintenance.  Ordinarily the rearsets, suspension and related paraphernalia would be in the way and my jack stands would be supporting the bike via the pegs, precluding the removal of the suspension componants.

After staring at the bike's bare ass for a couple drinks...

IMG_20191122_205924.thumb.jpg.235d27cbe214e67a1d5be0e5c3b38cdb.jpg

...it dawns on me that even tho Yamaha spent millions on engineers and computers and high-tech cad mumbo jumbo this bike was engineered by my counterparts at Left Twix and Right Twix and that cross member was a total accident.

Oh well, at least Yamaha spared no expense on the fix; cutting the kickstand 1" shorter lol!

Happy Thanks Giving folks from all of me here at Blue Line Racing. Spending some time with real people and enjoying their fellowship today.

Then it's off to the shop.

IMG_20191128_103515.thumb.jpg.e1667fe00b4400642444b1c50dac5823.jpg

Putting a motor together this afternoon.

IMG_20191128_103601.thumb.jpg.d5a5340be8619e5be839a2ce5a8c1575.jpg

Got the suspension back from the tuner too.  

IMG_20191128_101750.thumb.jpg.bda77f6c5bbe352235b5307f38c1505e.jpg

Got the rear end cleaned up and fresh grease in everything. It all looks good so no new parts here.
