Steering - Suspension - Rear End / Re: Lakester rear suspension
« Last post by Peter Jack on Today at 01:27:12 AM »
I've always been somewhat partial to using some sort of elastomer in the suspension such that you have almost a solid mount suspension but there's a little give to aid traction. It may be worth thinking about as in many cases it can be self damping.

Steering - Suspension - Rear End / Re: Lakester rear suspension
« Last post by Jack Gifford on Today at 12:12:41 AM »
Spent the last few weeks cramming all the "stuff" into the lakester. As expected, only room for a 3" driveshaft. So, for expediency, I'll try running without any rear suspension. To "freeze" the rear axle in place I simply replaced the shocks with heim-end rods.

It seems the one I had with a vacuum petcock had a reserve position that did not require vacuum. 
But that was a long time ago... Tech  will get back to  you

There is no crystal ball Mate, it's just too early to predict.
If the level has gone down, that means the mining company finally pulled the plug.
The weather conditions we're having are cooler that normal with more rain that normal & windier than normal. I am about 100 miles downrange from Bonneville & receive basically the same weather conditions.

If anyone has pics of Ted Gansberger on Jim Bickford's wicked Honda 750, I would greatly appreciate a copy. I'm happy to pay for scanning, shipping, and your time.  thanks, Dean

From my experience that's only allowed in production classes.

Just to be awkward, i'm worrying loads, as i have to crate my bike up here in the UK and commit to $4000 of shipping/customs/freight/certification costs in the next few days, so would love to hear some more positive views on salt drying out, weather forecast for next 10 days seems low 30's and no rain, so that should help.

Proper use of our tennis court this weekend. Painted the interior and engine bay with some Rustoleum Smoke Grey.
