Stan, you've got it mixed up.  Dollars are for spending, and pounds is what a hammer does. grin

It weighed in at aprox. 190kg without oil and fuel if I remember it correct, despite the cast iron gearbox and heavy gel battery.

It's not like it needs to be light
2 bar, that would be about 29 psi?

Yup, I might drop the front wheel pressure to 2.5 since that is what most people have.

I'm Australian, so I can only count to 10.... How you Americans put a man on the moon trying to work out three eighths of nineteen sixty fourths is beyond me. Give me metric any day  grin grin grin

When you convert those fractions to decimals, it is quite easy, mate.

You are right John, but mix in feet at 12:1 and yards at 36:1 then yards to miles and throw in pounds (troy or advp) to ounces at somewhere between 13 & 16:1, and things get un-necessarily complicated very quick. With Metric if you can count to 10 and be able to shift a decimal place one way or the other you are golden.

I know the US will probably never convert to metric like the rest of the world, but that is just how things are  Dead Horse Dead Horse Dead Horse

vive la difference

Cheers
Ian (Woodie)

ps I remember the first few years when metric came in here it was a real head f**k but there is no way I could be bothered with imperial any more. Having said that I still work out MPG for my car rather than L/100kms.....

I don't want to hijack Anders thread but while looking up Rods & Chains in my 1801 copy of "the Tutors Compendium" I found some things that may be of interest here.


9 Gallons of Beer is a Firkin.
63 Gallons of wine is a Hogshead.

So I guess if you drank all that you would have a .........wait for it ........... Firkin Hogshead of a hang over.... grin grin grin grin cheers

Let's move on from the  subject.  There's gotta be something better than hearing Woody talk about using a micrometer. rolleyes

I´ve hand painted the race numbers on the fairings and added some appropriate stickers, the One Mile race is held in just three weeks so it is time to get busy! smiley



Not that anyone would suspect that this bike belongs to any other team than ours, but I still added a Mobacken sticker to it. Smiley



This morning I started the bike to see if it is ready for the race, I adjusted the idle and found that the tachometer scaling is somewhat off.



Oh well, I might have to use the P2 gauge as usual to determine how hard I am running the engine. Can´t trust the tachometer until I have tested it thoroughly.



Anyone nearby I can really suggest a trip to Färila and Föne air base, it will be a very fun weekend!



Cheers!

Anders, you are much more relaxed now when you fire it up.  It must be working good.

Anders:

I was at Bonneville this weekend and had a long conversation with a guy about your build and how much it amazes us. It is a fascinating project. Good luck and good racing.
