I've been sick as well.  Knocked me on my ass.  Done little on the bike this past week, but slowly getting back at it.

Right? Felt like I was crawling around lost on Dagobah, after being beaten by Wookies, feverish w/green sh*t shooting outta everywhere, head pressurized to 3200psi, otherwise not too bad.

Busy work in the shop today and the weather was nice to boot!

Buttoning up motor connections, tidying up random paraphernalia,  and looky here,

The spare skins all patched up and ready for paint, look pretty good and are a direct replacement for the primary set.

Went through the front calipers and new Motul 600 for them. Set the preload on the new steering head bearings. The rest of the glass going back on after an off season refresh,

Ready to take some Suzuki scalps and run amok with the midpack mutts. 🏁

Have you taken it out yet to see what it all feels like... Or is the snow too much of a hindrance? 

 


ATGATT... ATTATT, two acronyms I live by.

I'm not a nut!

We did have the scooters out and with their fat tires they were a hoot on the snow and ice covered roads. Loads of fun dumping them and as they're only a few inches off the ground and slow they're cheap and painless to crash, lol.

But no, I have not done any race testing, yet. I do have parts coming and going for a new build tho.  Shhh.

Here's his ride, as Norton goes into the shitter, killing itself and Spondon chassis builder:

You’re about to read the first in a series of interviews relating to the Norton story. The story is not a good one for the UK motorcycle industry.

If this needs to be moved by the Admin, Please go ahead. I was responding to a previous comment and I got carried away. Really annoyed..

I may have overstepped the line in the sand!!! with the links.

So I figured out the Leo Vince can fits nicely under the exist bodywork and is a beautiful fit to the Yosh headers. There's no way I'm dragging this one in right handers.

IMG_20200304_173736.thumb.jpg.28c15046a1995be8ac82414ef899bf46.jpg

But it is so small I wonder about making noise limits in MotoAmerica. I won't be able to fire it up for testing for a while yet.

Holy size diff batman

Really nice piece of kit though.

IMG_20200304_173749.thumb.jpg.bcd84cff12d818da0d236ced5761f9a5.jpg

Looking forward to trying to burn/blow this up like all my other cans.

I like the looks of that.... It looks "loud"!!!! You definitely won't be dragging it on right handers-   😎

Definitely won't drag, but might it cook your right boot a wee bit?

If there is a noise limit, you most likely will have issues.   It may make less power too.  It's a short system and some say length makes power.  But it does look bad ass.

Once I get some data from it I may mess some extensions, more is always better right? 

I might have to try and get another dyno day like last year. Make up like 3, 6 & 10" extensions for this system and I could make some runs on the new bike too, hmmm... maybe set something on fire...Medic!

 

 

Just to be safe I did order another Yosh can

Get with @pgeldz, which I'm sure you have.  I think you will want to package a setup like his for max hp.

Fired it up tonite. Not as loud as I'd have thought. I can't tell if it's louder or not than the Yosh R22 can in the shop anyway. It doesnt have that lovely "Crack" of the Yosh when whacking it, more of a "Whomp". I won't know about WOT under load until raceday unfortunately.  Same for power charcteristics and throttle response, until we're on track or in the dyno room it's only a guess at this point.

The Yosh can showed up when I called it quits in the shop so maybe I'll get a chance to do some back to back soon.

Well looky here! I asked a friend a while back if his filter company cataloged a filter for the FZ/MT07 yet and was told "Not yet". Then this shows up today. They are constructed to meet or exceed all factory specifications and will beat any aftermarket filter in performance.

I'm gonna see if we can get a 'special buy' on these for forum members. 

Woot!
