Fawkin A buddy lookin swell.
I've been in the same boat since last fall. Got 2 projects and nothing to "just ride" but burned on actually working on them with the job, house, cars, etc.To be perfectly honest I'm burned out on wrenching. When you spend more time building them then riding them, it's no fun to me.
T....i..res? Huh? Whut? Sorry wait. Whut? OH the bike and such. Oh. ya. tires...UPDATE:
Long delay between posts. I've been almost 100% focused on racing lately. I'm now hosting race events for minis and still racing both mini and full sized bikes between different organizations and tracks. The only real wrenching I do now is building race bikes for extra cash on the side for the race budget.
That doesn't mean I didn't spend more time tricking the Vmax out though. Since the last posts I've ditched the stock air box for a Monster Big Air kit with billet stacks and K&N Filters
After reprogramming the ECU for this change I picked up a PCV and had it custom mapped to fine tune the A/F ratio.
There was a random photoshoot for a local radio station (101 KGBFM):
Then I got bored, ordered up the 8" wide rim from yamaha, bought and installed a voodoo 1" lowering cradle for the rear, slid the forks up 1" at the front, and stuffed a 240mm rear on the back for street riding:
Now I use the stock rear rim for drag racing and the fatty for looking good around town. Makes tire swaps MUCH easier. I'm planning to mount a squared drag slick on the rear for 1/4mile passes. Mickey Thompson sells a tire that fits my 18" rim perfectly. I have to get my NHRA license to run faster than 10.00 at Fontana here locally so now I have to fab up some type of wheel skirt to cover the rear tire in order to pass tech. I'm thinking i'll grab a universal cover from airtech and find a way to mount it to the license plate bracket specifically for the drags.
To be perfectly honest I'm burned out on wrenching. When you spend more time building them then riding them, it's no fun to me. Glad the Vmax is nearly done. Only doing a quick shifter as my final upgrade I think. My race bikes are all finished and the only work needed now is maintenance and crash repairs. It's nice. I love riding way more than wrenching.
