Excellent. If I were to hit the track I think it would have to be on something like that. Trying to ride full fairing bikes now just doesn't work for me. The fact that all the front fairing junk doesn't turn just messes with my head. I ride my buddies ZX6R (identical to my model) and I feel like its a boat.
Yes tis a Roof RO20 one piece helmet, they're very good, I've had 5! Keep landing on my head and am still sane. Ish.
1988 GSX-R 750J Slingshot, bored out to 837cc with a JE piston kit and fitted with modified Cobra downpipes and 32mm Bandit 600 carbs to lower power* and retain torque. Also uses Ramair filters, a crankcase breather, Pingel fuel tap, Earls oil cooler and lines, dummy NOS bottle catch tank and a Venhill quick action throttle. Power 117bhp with 36mm carbs, 104bhp with 32mm carbs.
* - in my series we have a power/weight ratio limit. The Gixer was way too powerful with the big bore and original 36mm carbs, so we fitted 32mm Bandit carbs to reduce power and keep the torque. Tis now 104bhp and weighs 180kg ready to race.
1988 GSX-R 750J main frame, Manic Motorcycles race subframe with battery box, modified GSX-R 1000K2 rearsets.
GSX-R 1000K2 yokes (with 750J stem) and forks (with Öhlins springs), 1000K2 calipers with Performance Friction brake pads, Earls braided lines, Moto Master brake discs, Sprint steering damper.
Race results: Had problems with oil leaks, but when running properly tis very fast indeed. Never won owt, I'm not the best racer in the world at all! Regular points finishes, best of 6th, twice. Up against some much newer bikes, Duc 748s, SV700s, Laverda Formulas, Buells etc...
Leading a Ducati 748 here, for example...
I've run out of cash for this season, unfortunately, but will be back out soon enough.
Also used to race a naked SV650 too in a series we have called Minitwins.
Lovin' the gixxer, is that the same one from the build chronicles in the mag? I've been trying to find all the issues that had that, but so far I only have a couple. And I love the SV. Racing aside, it looks awesome.
