They always say that when you gain one thing you lose another or the other way around. If coils that have less ohms charge faster, than why not run 1.5 instead of 3.5? I'm just curious, I have to run a different coil. I found out that the coil I've been running is not the 3.5 that was on the box but 4.8. The reason why I ask is cause I have a 2.8 but don't know a lot about coils to know if that's a good idea or a bad idea.
I wasn't saying that the Honda was reliable at all. I was asking the question not giving the answer. That reference was for someone with experience to answer the question, not you. I was just stateing that you've never seen the inside of your motor so I was wondering how good of mechanical and technical skills and expertise you could really give. It must be hard to live every day life seeing everything the wrong way, it must be like your working twice as hard and going backwards the harder you work. Maybe thats why you have such negeative undertones in things you say.
Also the BSA was always reliable under 8000, it just specifically asked me to run it above 9000, but don't worry you'll get to run against it again.
maryland is pagan country. (people against goodness and niceness i seem to recall a movie saying) they were founded here.
also, i feel the need to defend myself on the comments about not seeing the inside of my engine. first, if you would have ever let mike ride one of your bikes, youd know thats not true. second, if i had been racing a brit bike, i would have pulled it apart every race weekend also. the fact that i havent checked my timing in 3 years however does NOT mean i dont know what the crank shaft looks like. and that reminds me, the only time my bike ran poorly was when you rode it, mr poopy pants. and that was 2x in one weekend. also, coils are on the outside of the engine last time i checked. and, i kind of like to compare it all to driving in reverse, in the wrong lane, in england.
i really did build my own motor, really.
did you know mike found that motor he has, put it in, changed the oil, fired it up and raced it?? he never checked anything. not the valves, the timing, nothing. nutcase.
Sorry about that dude. I go to the shop on Tuesday nights and Saturday days as my new schedule. So because I'm not there all the time I leave my phone in the van. I was working on an exhaust for the sloper. Man... my other pipe was way off. As Branson said Ahhh, your pipe sucks.
Mary's exhaust resonated itself into several pieces at Shannonvile. Strangest thing I've ever seen. Metal cracked in places like it was an eggshell. I've silcon bronze TIG welded it back together and reenforced a few areas, other than that the plan is just to change to the tubular peg mounts. I've got no idea what's causing it, hopefully not an engine vibration. But then again...so what if it blows up, it's her's not mine.
dont worry about it aaron, i was actually calling you to ask if you wanted to ride the endurance race with mike and i. but i saw that you guys are going to ride something. i've asked chris again and if he doesnt come up maybe tom t will. im looking forward to running around in 200/250/350gp. that grid is going to be insane. there will probably be 40 or more bikes out there. the fast guys comming through up to the 350's on 200's and 250's. it should be alot of fun.
your bike should be a little rockethip when youre done. and i really think it should be pretty reliable.
