Briz, I t was a pleasure to meet you even if it was all too brief.  The salt can be cruel but a good teacher at the same time.  Look forward to seeing  you back in 2014.  Think big holes INSIDE the carb.
Get off the stove Grandad.  You're too old to be riding the range.

Overall bowl capacity and flow-rate through the float-valve has cramped a lot of bikes' style on the salt. As your thinking through the carb-intake process.....consider a longer RUBBER intake track and a shorter velocity stack with a 180-degree bell.....possibly turned to the rear with a high-flow air-cleaner.

I first visited the salt in '09.....was a competitor and succeeded with a class record in '11.....and plan to return in '13 with a faster motor and ready to enter more classes.  The experience will keep you coming back 8-) 8-)

Good to meet you too Bill. Its been a very interesting experience. We'll certainly be back, and some of the crew guys are now studying the rule book with a view to competing themselves! we're gonna need a 40-foot container at this rate!

.....and will be selling it on in favour of something with better parts & knowledge base, maybe a Buell XB9 lump or similar. The Weslake is a strong engine but its going to take a lot of time and testing to get the best from it. And this is not easy when you live on a different continent from the salt!
The  bike goes to the shippers in Los Angeles on Monday.
Anyone in the US who might want to make an offer on the drivetrain would need to act quick!!!!! :-D

Please pm me about that engine - Thanks
