Katy practice

Any members of the Katy track want to get a little practice in on Monday afternoon?

I need to get the 65 sorted before the first TMGP round. May even bring the 450 out for a little play time!

There's a few of us going Saturday after the meet that Tim is throwing down at Motorcycles Unlimited.

Good meeting you guys. Sorry I did not get the chance to turn some laps.

Found the problem though. Smoked the piston and galled the rings to the piston. Not sure if it was improper break in, or not enough oil. Either way, the piston and rings are toast.

Sucks about your bike man.

Rob, let me know if you need me to weld that tab back on your exhaust.

Was nice meeting you folks out there. COLD out today. Matthew how long you gonna be down and out for? What kinda jetting is in that thing? Did it happen at the end of the straight? Hope you get going again soon. I have a B piston and rings and wrist pin, bearing and clips sitting here if you need it sooner than later.

Thanks for the offer Vaughn. I have a used piston and rings that I could get going with, but I will be gone for 3 weeks, so I am going to order a new set today or tomorrow.

The motor quit at the end of the back straight, right as I tipped it into the left hand kink. I was glad it was just a top end issue, and nothing seized up. That wouldn't have been fun at top speed!

I believe jetting is stock. Haven't gotten to take the carb apart and check everything out yet (that was on my list of tuning to do, until this come up).

Did you guys end up getting some laps in yesterday? Hopefully the karters let you get some track time in.

Yeah, we got a couple of sessions in, and Rob busted his exhaust mount off after the second session but seemed to be having a good time till then. Deano had a big grin on his face when he took his helmet off, and I always have a good time out there. I think everyone had fun. The pavement seems in worse condition than I remembered in the last turn before the long straight and in front of the bleachers going CCW.
