yeah, doubt theres anything hinky there. people also forget, rabs been riding a long time. and is fast. and if youve ever followed him into a corner, thats where he makes most of his time. its not like he sqirts the throttle on the straight, and thats it. he is fast all over. today i started ripping apart my next frame. im literally cutting off everything that isnt holding something, supporting something, or keeping it together. ive also ripped apart my motor. i couldnt find anything obviously wrong with it there is something up with one of the valves, which i'll pst a pic of here. otherwise, it all looked good. pistons, bores rings etc. so i'll get it back together and rebuild the carbs. so we'll see. in the meantime, the plan is to run the "B" motor.
