First T&T with my new engine
« on: May 28, 2016, 08:08:30 AM »
Finally got a break in the weather and got to the track last night ! First T&T with my new engine and clutch setup . Weather was hot and muggy and the track was hooking up good . I set my shift light at 5000 for the first pass and the bike felt real good ! Bumped it up to 5500 for the second pass and missed my 4th to 5th shift and bumped the limiter . Set my light to 6000 the last pass and was a little slow off the line but it got moving super fast and i squeezed out an 11.71 ! Finally earned my 11 sec patch !! Bike is running awesome and is doing everything i could ask ! The bandit clutch is flawless , i pulled out some shims to lighten it up and was afraid it was going to slip . It hooked up great and in the 1st pass i do a nice 2nd gear wheelie ! No worries about the clutch ! Had a great time with a great bunch of guys . Here are some pics and videos .

Way to go Josh! Looks like the new motor is a winning combo!! Still waiting to hit my first T&T night this summer. Work has been busy as hell. But, that's what pays for my habit. One of life's cruel jokes! :angry:

Good luck this summer, hope the motor continues to purr along. :up:

Great job you have done Josh. Those 60's can only get better. That is what I keep telling myself as well.

Thanks Jay ! I hope to get to the track once a month this year . Practice is the only thing that is going to make me faster . There is a few older guys that are at the track allot , mostly on high end rockets that have been really nice to me and have helped me every time ive asked . Along with the help from guys on this forum i feel confident i will get faster as the year progresses !

Pretty cool! Looks like a lot of fun!

I basically work across the freeway from Firebird Raceway, now called Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park, just outside of Phx. & frequently hear/feel the race boats blasting off across the lake there.

I just checked their website & they do have Fri. night "run what ya brung" drags. Guess I'll just have to see what my 124" will do on a track.

You guys inspire me!
