Ug. This RZ350 I picked up... piston with a melted hole through the exhaust side, aluminum on the crank bearings. The clutch fiber plates were broken, so bits of the fiber plates were wandering through the gearbox. There's a very nice aluminum paste on the bottom of the cases and a few shot transmission bearings.quote:
PS. Check out what we did to Mary's 50cc engine last week.
Yeah... I've already sent in my pre-entry for the next race... So I'll do that one. But need to rebuild the gearbox before then as the shift forks must be bent (pops out of gear too easily).quote:
Dude, I know what you mean. Sometimes you just have to walk away from it for awhile. I've regretted selling stuff though. You'll warm up to it again...
The race winner, the guy who ran the whole marathon, not just the half like me, finished about half hour later. Crazy type fast. That's like running a 5:45 pace for the whole race.quote:
"Had a great half marathon this weekend. 1:40 = 7:38 pace for 13.1 miles. I'm pretty happy with that."
That's pretty damn good. Yikes.
Nice. Sometimes riding for fun is... more fun. Good to hear.quote:
We were supposed to race this weekend, got the word that it was cancelled Friday night, made other plans, then late Sat. afternoon got word that the racing was back on. Too late for us to make it. Instead, we ran our XR100 and an old Suzuki dirt bike on a local motocross "practice" track. Had more fun doing that anyway...and I'm feeling the muscles today. Turned out to be a great weekend.
