    Bob O Link club membership is still limited to a bunch of racist white males.
    We play at Sunset Valley and lob shit balls over the fence at them when we're playing #2 and #3

    No fender on top of the seat to stop rain falling straight onto it in a car park or on the highway in a thunderstorm.

    Danger, is my business.

    ...
    You put your fenders on top of your seat, no wonder you won't posts pics of your imaginary motorcycles.

    "twitworth" - as you are so affectionately called here, I almost started replying to your nonsense (what does a fender on top of your seat mean?!!) but then I saw that there is actually a thread started on "HOW TO IGNORE WITWORTH" - https://www.caferacer.net/forum/gener...-witworth.html

    Your fellow forum members, amongst which you are such a "regular" have actually had to go to such lengths as to post a tutorial on how to BLOCK YOU FROM THEIR POSTS...............wow. Ok - ignored.

    … 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
    Good points - as those are tricky on these older 2strokes from what I've learned. The specialty shop that did the work on this RD installed the banshee cages and reeds - which really crisped things up.

    The oil is still injection - with everything seeming to mix well still. A bit of typical 2stroke smoke on choke and warmup - but it settles in cleanly - even under WOT.

    I haven't pulled too many wheelies on that skinny tire either - especially while still in partial lean out of a canyon corner here in Colorado , I save that for my Italian flavors that share the stable currently with the RD ('14 MV F4 and '10 1198SP). I'm sure you're loving that F3 - great looking bike.

    Nice! Might hurt the top speed a bit, and limit visibility in high-speed corners - but who cares, you at least have a nice-smelling dry seat........ right Wit?? lol

    :shock: you let other people work on your reeds !

    what brands of 2-stroke injection oil have you tried?
