Well, what did happen? Please do not leave us in suspense.

lol

anticlimactic

the two boys pushed the little ninja to 106 mph, a near-record speed two years ago but slower than the lighter girls did. th enumber three son was a newbi and did very well.

i had a hell of a time with the new fuel. bike ran well enough with it


but i couldnt get enough fuel into the carbs. people told me to expect to go up six or eight sizes on th ejets, but i went up nine and still could find rich. i finally borrowed some drill bits and started just hogging jets out oversize. eventually at 47 percent larger mains i found rich, then backed down to a smaller size.

even with the carbs clean though, i couldnt get any faster than 121. ried advancing the spark and the bike went slower. retarded the spark and it speeded back up. mostly the problem was that whatever power boost i got from oxygenated fuel wasnt at the top end where i needed it, so th ebke would speed up rapidly to 120 and then just stay there. so im going to drop the gearing back down, maybe switch back to the smaller wheels with more gearing options, and go again next year. in the meantime illl take off the ancient magneto and fit the electronic magnetic-triggered ignition ive had for several years. so we'll go back and see. im still faster than anybody else running a similar machne.
