greetings all,

Anyone want to make plans for a ride on Sunday this weekend? I am going to spend Saturday with Nicholae at Gateway and some others of you might be at this track-day as well.
Let me know so I can plan a route for the ride.

The track day is saturday.

The races are sunday..........I'll probably be at both. Although I do need to put some miles on this bike to get it broken in.:):):)

Just dropped my bike off at motorrad. As it turns out the sprocket assembly 195lbs of torque on the nut holding it. I was unable to budge it. If I get my bike back by sat I will be there on sunday.

I tried everything. It is put on with an impact wrench. I had my 240lbs friend sit on it with the rear brake engaged. I was lifting him and the bike off the ground. On the plus side. I bought a crapload of tools and finished my motorcycle trailer. My new 3/4" socket set goes up to 50mm. If anyone needs a tool to work on their bike, I probably have it now. Except for an impact wrench.
On another note, I saw Vito's bike there.

Geez freak.

Why does it need so much TQ. Maybe my 79hp little guy won't have so much TQ on it when change time comes. Did you have them go up two teeth our three..................Now would be the time..............little more umph. Jerry has a very strong 3/4 impact wrench but don't know if he has sockets that big. Isn't it a 46mm if I remember right.

Jeff, the only thing holding the sprocket is that nut. Its at motorrad right now. I was sent the wrong rear sprocket and Donelsons sold me the wrong cush drives. I have to take them back in the am and bring them the right ones. My sprocket is being overnighted sat delivery for an xtra 50 bucks. I am going nuts without my bike. It should be done tomorow afternoon. I hope.

Hey all,

Things have changed at my house, so I will not be riding on Sunday. Sorry about that, I jumped the gun. You guys can still go for a ride, though.

Fred won't be there we can wear swim suits, flip flops, no helmets and run 210 mph LOL.......................:D:D:D Oh shit....................:) You might as well head over for some track day and hang out with us. Fred should already be there.
