Mike, I've got to admit I was concerned when you started to tear apart the last bike. My concerns were totally unfounded. Very well done Sir!  cheers cheers cheers

Whew!

Today, I feel like a huge weight has been taken off me.  My engine will be ready this week.  No further delays.  It only needs the power valve in the exhaust port welded up and out of the way.  I actually saw it (not an easy thing) and I'll say one thing, the guy's an effin' artist!  Slow maybe but very meticulous. 

With two months of work to do after I get the motor (and there are only two months left) I was really starting to sweat it.

That's great news. Glad it's just about ready. I know what you mean about time. I keep finding things that will need to be done and look at the calendar and flinch. shocked

Whew!

Today, I feel like a huge weight has been taken off me.  My engine will be ready this week.  No further delays.  It only needs the power valve in the exhaust port welded up and out of the way.  I actually saw it (not an easy thing) and I'll say one thing, the guy's an effin' artist!  Slow maybe but very meticulous.  

With two months of work to do after I get the motor (and there are only two months left) I was really starting to sweat it.
Time is an illusion, lunchtime: doubly so.

I think I am on track this year (although two bikes is a bigger challenge than I was anticipating).  You seem to be in better shape.  cheers

Haven't been around much lately. I'm on Wi-Fi here and they can't seem to get their act together.

Crunch time is officially here with less than 2 months until Speedweek.  Looking back I can't believe I was so na´ve as to think I'd be dyno testing by April back when I started this last September.  sad.  I've got the week off and it's the last I'll have before leaving so the big stuff has to get done this week.

Got the intake tract all done today.  That's a big step because the engine can't be positioned until the carb is positioned. (The Lectron carb is darn near as big as the motor!)  Tomorrow we should be able to get the engine mounted and the expansion chamber turned 180 degrees so it exits out the front.  Hopefully, the body will get mounted Thursday and then it should all be downhill. (remember the part about thinking I'd be dyno testing by April?  rolleyes

Found out there's an SCTA  tech inspector not far from me who can do a "tech for class" inspection of the bike.  That would sure be a load off my mind.

Awesome Mike, sounds like its coming along. That 2 month mark really sneaks up on you. If you don't already have a tuner you should check out Nel's 2 Wheel Dynoworks in Woodinville. Mine will be hitting his dyno this afternoon.

BTW, I have been meaning to tell you, your body work looks phenomenal. You do some great work!

Mike,
I recommend Nels portable dyno too. He tuned the power commander for my turbo ZX-10 and does a great job.

FYI, Nels is going to be down tuning at Redline in Tacoma tomorrow if you are ready it could e worth checking out. He makes fairly frequent trips down there so you can probably line it up for next time he is there if needed.

Thanks for the heads up guys but my builder/tuner is an ex Honda factory Grand Prix mechanic, has run at Bonneville (held a small displacement record I think) and was Freddie Spencer's builder & tuner back in the day.  The Hayden family are his friends and little Nicky and Tommy would come over and climb on the race bikes and make vroom-vroom noises.  He just built a motor that won a flat track championship at Daytona.  He's now the service manager at a large m/c dealership and has his own little "skunkworks" with a dyno in their warehouse.  He built this motor so I figure I'm in pretty good hands as far as tuning goes.

Got the motor in today so the rest of the build is (finally! ) in motion. grin grin grin

Sounds like you will have no problem at all with the tuning then. Cant wait to see how it goes. What's the new goal for having it running?
