I just finished my first year racing (sort of) a cb350. I tell you it was more difficult to get it prepped, wired, cleaned, etc. I thank many of the gents here helping me throughout the year. I've learned alot but from one hiccup to another just kept preventing me to get on the track. It's not cheap either, and it took me a whole winter working in a dark cramped basement of my building sniffing soot!
If I could do it again I would have bought a used prepped cb350 ready to race. Ahhh, that would be nice - but no I chose the hard way-geesh!
Next year, I should be ok and cross my fingers that I'll be at the track racing instead of tinkering.
PS. I was told that the first year is the hardest! It was true. But just being around the other racers and hanging out with them for a weekend, seeing them race was well worth the time.
you know it about the first year. how about traveling from philly to jennings florida with my new cb350. ended up having a bad oring on a pilot jet which flooded the left cylinder. 2000 miles for three very slow sighting laps, zeech!
rookiegeorge, if you can swing it, buy the race prepped machine.
I'm hoping to have time this weekend to seperate the frame and engine so I can have the frame stripped to bare metal for welding. I've got a new fuel cap seal on the way so I can fill the tank with Kerosene and rocks to clean the rust a bit.
Can anyone verify that the (stock) disc brake forks will work with the drum? I expect I'll just need to fabricate a brace.
Lastly, my VIN plate doesn't have a K1,K2 or anything like that after the CB350...is there a guide somewhere that tells which is which? I've even misplaced (for the moment) the VIN I had written down.
GeorgeZboy... just build it yourself... you know you want to Leave the prebuilt stuff for the technically inept people like myself
12/17 is out for the winter camp, Lentz's christmas party instead.. Kidd is coming down for that as well... will you make it ?
