The time you put up is nothing to be ashamed of, that's for sure. Especially for the first time out on a new bike and setup.
Good luck getting it dialed in in the coming races
No shirt, no shoes, and I still get service. Why?
Girl, look at this body!

No joke, the bike alone... but going 10.15 shaking that thing down is a huge accomplishment. Much respect!

Your modified 137Ē @ 12:5........vs a 133Ē .....and you have excuses for getting your ass kicked? Bagger to Bagger?
No excuses. Iíve gotten my ass owned several times, and I own it...You ran a nice pass, but got beat....period. Get back to work, make adjustments to you and your bike, and next time run him over like a truck with a solid 9.70ís and donít say a word beforehand-
GB will never know what hit him.....

4.400 bore X 4.5 stroke, yes m8, keeping cam close to the vest right now, dark horse crank lighten and balance
Looking at the bore and stroke and was thinking that seems like a good combination . Rick does good work also . Is this a track only bike , if so could you give it a bit more compression or is this the sweet spot for 93 octane .  I never had a track bike but I think there is some thing to be said about moving the torque rise to the right as to help not blow off the rear tire  that and a good lock up clutch , again nice build

basically track only, has a few street miles. I have stock bike to ride on the street. compression is 12.08:1. With no compression change and different cam you could probably flip hp and tq numbers but it would be painfully slow like those 5" stroke m8's

  Na I not fond of long stroke motors I prefer big bore and shorter storke . I not sure what the limits are for bore that the cylinder will stay round or perhaps that's a function of liner thickness . a track only with 110 octane fuel could have a quiet a bit of compression lol thanks for the reply . I always thought that heads were the key to making hp
