    I like your RD btw.
    if I was going to vintage track race, I think that would be in contention,
    although I'm not sure what class they would stick you in :|

    Thanks - really appreciate it. I'm sure it'll go to a good home at some point. Probably not via here as Jaguar factually stated (saw that jaguar and twitworth like to buddy up on the negative responses here).

    This ride was more for a trip down the nostalgic memory lane as my first bikes were ripping 2strokes.

    From what I've read - that is as likely as seeing a unicorn running down the street with a pig flying above it

    Incidentally Dean - saw that your in highland park Il. I grew up in lake bluff and used to caddie at Bob O Link country club in HP. Used to ride my Kenny Roberts rz350 to and from the course - loved that bike until I snapped my finger in the sprocket one day!

    ramair311: "New upper end including Wiseco pistons (stock CC) " Wisecos need more clearance to run than OEM pistons. Did you just put them in and hope for the best or think a light hone would let the slip through? How many miles with the Wisecos? Stock CC? Really?

    So I gather it's got worn out old OEM shocks? No mention of those. Does the seat suck up water when it rains?

    Jag or I have no need to "gang up" to deal with you. I stand on my own two feet, as I see Jag does. And DiamondJ.

    I envy your biting wordsmithery. You have got the worst reaction from regulars here, quicker, with the least keystrokes than any other poster. By envy I don't mean funny.

    Maybe the street corner with the sign and the minty-fresh Ab-roller is the sales venue for you?

    Try putting enough details in a modified bike advert next time. Paying for it even.

    Danger, is my business.

    How are the reed valves, do they lay perfectly flat against the cage? Stock original, replaced to your knowledge or aftermarket?
    … was a part that made a significant performance difference on my 2-strokes.

    Oil is still by injection, or are you running pre-mix ? I remember the RD's as being pretty heavy smokers :|
    Also having a difficult time keeping the front end down, when it hit the power-band on a modified RD350
    … I'd probably be scared to do a high speed wheelie on a skinny tired bike now, been riding the fat Pirelli on the MV too much lately

    Riding around in summer with a wet butt from a stitched up seat with stinky wet foam that never dries out, is not a small problem. It might be your idea of fun, ain't mine.
