right , , , Left? what's it matter? I dropped it down on the right side, and I'd start scraping the clip on before that puppy would hit the ground. It's actually tucked in pretty well. Guy told me he'd make a whole new exhaust if I touched the pavement with it.
The meg is about 2-3 inches from the end of the back of the tire, so I am safe. I told them that it was a necessity.
I am really surprised at the difference it made. I have been on the bike a lot, lots of laps, and maybe it was jsut that it was the first time on the bike in a few months, but man, it just seemed like a new animal when I ran it in the parking lot. Much stronger in the mid range. But maybe it's cause I lost 10 lbs.
The breather is one of those old time hi-tech PVC valves. Don't really know if it does any good. If I get some $$ soon, I'll take it to the dyno and try it with it on and off. I have not tried it with it off on the track. Don;t fix it if it ain;t broke.
My only concern so far is if the springs will be able to hold the pipe against the head. Then it's back to collars.
PARTY at Kennedy's tomorrow. Maine USCRA guys. Beer. Food. Rain. Bikes.
What did it cost? I ain;t telling. I'll see how well it works, but it was made by one of the most hi-end custom street rod shops on the east coast here in Maine. Unbelievable stuff. I always seem to choose folks that charge a lot . . . But I expect a lot. Beautiful welds, and good construction. I only have to decide if I want to switch the end of the meg to s supertrap to quiet it down. More disks more quiet, right?
Off to Home Despot.
PS. IN re the 350 engine. I am still trying to find the DEFINITIVE answer re O-rings and seals between head and barrels. Seems like an o ring over knock pins, and nothing over the other holes. I start re-assembly tomorrow, so we'll see.
