Dennis, I will not be at the salt this year.  It looks like a couple of cams need to be designed and ground for the Triumph before it does any racing.  Progress is being made.

Success smiley smiley smiley smiley Well, sort-of...............My 750cc sohc Honda-four got me a record in Modified Partial Streamlined Classic Gas at 137.699 mph...........top speed was 140-mph on a separate run but my battery failed and I could not back it up angry  Without the fairing I also upped the record by 5-mph to 130-mph smiley

The Triumph ran into wire-harness failure so I parked it and went home a day early to catch the Chief Blackhawk AMCA meet in Davenport Iowa.

Sounds speedy. Sorry I missed you. Do you run a total loss electrical system, battery without the drag of a generator?

Total loss L-I unit...............When fully charged its good for 4 runs on the International course. I could have idled home on the battery, but not enough juice for full noise on the 5th run. I use a Deltron (Battery Tender) unit and like the 4-post design and that it does not require a special charger.

I'm looking at dropping my tank to the floor so it will need a fuel pump. The fuel pump I have on hand is a 12v model and the bike is CDI with 6 v for lights. So a total loss 12v battery will power the pump. I think the pump draws 3 amps so a 15 amp hour battery should run 5 hours-ish. I figured I carry a spare battery. I have found a solar powered trickle charger and I thought that might keep it topped off when not running at sunny Bonneville.

We have a solar unit for the daytime, and a standard charger in hotel-room for when I REMEMBER to bring the battery with me wink

I see several riders using a modern Suzuki fuel pump for its low-amperage and sufficient volume without 'blowing' the fuel-lines.

So we got the motor on the CB750 together and gave it a trial run. All is good with no apparent damage to any components after our record runs cool cool cool  Plans are to fashion a new and improved tail-section to 'close the hole' more effectively. While that is being accomplished, Carol and I have decided to do some traveling to see some far-away places. Our first trip was to visit several national parks in California and Utah. Upon our return to Plymouth, (sold our house and moved to an apartment) the mail-lady brought me a letter from our State Governor. He was congratulating me for setting records at Bonneville..........Wow.....it must have been a slow news-day for him to do that cheesy cheesy..........but I do know that he occasionally rides a bike cool cool

A few short trips are planned to visit our daughters and then..............we hope to travel with our RV to Alaska for several months in 2017. We will tow a trailer containing a UTV and a bike. One of many things on my 'bucket-list' is to ride the Haul Road to take a swim in the Arctic Ocean. If we like what we are doing, we may not be back to the salt until 2018. But the bikes will be ready, just in case smiley smiley smiley
