well i finally got my b4 running on the belgium cdi and new coils:nuts: figures now that we have 4 bike on my insurance they wont let me add another. and a new policy is like 75 bux a year soo now i need to figure out what to do with it.

sell it off and pay off various debt.

run it as a track bike

suck it up and get insurance and pretty much just do track days and the odd run about

Thing is i would want to make sure everything is peachy before i spend 200 bux on a track day thats alot of dough for me.
what do u guys think

Fuck it, sell it. If you already have 4 bikes on your insurance, I'd say put the money into one of those, I've gone down the dark road of having too many projects at once...not worth it

If you like it and want to keep it figure out which of your other 4 bikes you can do without and sell that. If you're happy with what you have sell it take the cash and spend it hookers and cocaine or beef up your current bikes. Hookers and cocaine are awesome though.

Sorry I forgot to mention I share the policy with my dad and my wife. So only two of the bikes on the policy are mine.
We got my dads hardly sporty
My wife's nc700x that replaced the b4
My fz1
And the helix 250 which I commute to work on cause I work in a shady part of town and no one wants to steal a scoot held together with zip ties

I'm going to play around with different policy's maybe it won't cost as much to insure the helix on a separate policy.
My plan is to insure it to make sure all the bugs are worked out. I wouldn't want to hand off another project to someone else. So I would do one of two things
Trade it for a dual sport then I would sumo it and take that to the track. I would sell my helx and get some hard bags and commute on that. Cause riding in snow on a scooter sux.

The other idea is to get bugs worked out and track it and see where that goes. But if anyone wants to trade lemme know. I would prolly take a ninjette in trade too for a track commuter bike.

Well I thought I would fill you guys in with what I ended up getting. Turned out it was parked in my new uncles driveway. We went to go look at a cj7 that was in "good running condition" well the fuel tank was held on with a ratchet tie down. And you could flinstone it home cause the floors were so rusty. They wanted two grand for it and wouldn't go any lower.
So on the way back my unk says I've got a 95 caprice wagon with the vette engine and you could have it for scrap. It's got a rusted out trans cooler line but otherwise in great shape. It's not the coolest thing in the world but its growing on me though I'm going to have to learn to drive an automatic. Ill have pics tommarow

No but it lets you go into the corner at a certain rev and stay in the power band instead of going in at idle and then shifting down with fluctuating power. On the plus side I'm looking for a t56. Tranny to swap in there once I get the manual in there and some suspension that actually suspends this thing is gonna be bad ass

O really I've seen the swap guide and looked at the people making various kits. Since I don't make much spare cash I was planning on buying parts as I can afford them. Just out of curiousity would you be willing to part with one and how much would you want for it?
