Give me a shout if you need anything.

BTW, how did the front end feel?
Patrick, the front end did great, I was actually able to lower the forks through the trees about 1/4-3/8"(lowering the bike), then I put the strap on it and strapped it down about 1", only one time did I think the tire may have touched the intercooler but that was on the 225 mph run and I was on the brakes HARD..... if it did touch, it BARELY touched, I thought I heard it but it didn't leave a mark so....it was very minor. The reason I lowered the front from where you had it was with the nose that high, it seemed to develope a slight slight head shake on certain surfaces, I cranked up the dampening on the GPR dampener and it seemed to resolve the issue but I didn't want to chance it with big boost going in it and 5th gear wheelies. I am VERY happy with the work you all did on the front end.

Ironically, my GPR dampener blew its wad after my 213mph low boost run and was hyd fluid everywhere...That had me a little concerned as I turned the adjustment to "15" and I could barely feel resistance, normally I wouldn't be able to move the bars. Everything came out ok though, I did have some scary cross wind issues but....all in all, the bike performed great until I popped it. I do have APE studs in it and a cometic gasket.

Now I am trying to locate a good low mileage, stock head I can transplant my springs/seals to, then I will surface it and the block and put it back together.

Well Mike.... I couldn't even tally the dollars for you but... I do know this will be my last repair job on it. She will live an easy life of a highway cruiser after this....

As far as speed.... the problem is not power, its gearing, I can't get tall enough gearing on it to go much faster. Stock gearing is 17/40, I had 19/38 on it and it did 225.90 mph about 70 rpms(yes 70) from the rev limiter so it was DONE.... I switched to a 37t rear shooting for 230mph and I "THINK" it would have gotten 230mph but it would have been on the limiter at the end....Thats pretty much about it, I can't go any bigger on the front sprocket, I already had to "clearance" my billet sprocket cover to get the 19t in there. I could go to a 36t rear but thats the absolute smallest I could go, I would have to cut and shorten the chain to get that on there.... So its looking like 230mph is about all I can get....it only takes about 18lbs of boost to get it within a mile, thats about 350-360hp on my bike, I still have another 70-80hp left over easily....

The only thing I COULD do is order some overdrive 5th and 6th gears from Robinson, those and a large diameter, billet output shaft. With that setup, I would have enough RPM range for 260+mph theoretically but thats about $2k worth of tranny parts so.....prolly not gonna happen...Especially since this is just my weekend street rider, not an all out LSR bike.

Grocery Getter.

BTW, my rough calculation is $133 per MPH, based on the 225mph run.



But its prolly more then that....

Just curious, how much distance did you have to haul it back down after a run?

David, not sure how long the shutdown area is, when making a run it feels REALLY short. I would guess 1/4 mile or less.....I know I was on the brakes hard to get it to stop and actually ran into the cones once.... I have no idea how the guys going upper 240s-250s slow down in time to make the 90* turn at the end.

That is on the list of recommendations we have all turned into the Texas Mile promotors, to extend the shut down area and clean it better.
