  1. Mikuni HSR

    I’ve used mikunis on mobikes for years and highly rate them, but, you will need to know how to set them up. Main jets at max throttle opening first, then needle setting for mid range then pilots. I have a mikuni manual pdf if you need it
  2. Pushrod Valve Train Geometry

    The geometry of the valve to lifter arrangement can have appreciable effect on the valve opening rate. Some engines are more sensitive to variations than others. I seem to remember the Ford Pinto ohc engine had some potentially noticeable effects on valve opening rates depending on how the geometry was messed with...
  3. Triumph Crank Damper Pulley Survey

    And also the first harmonic is the biggest, all other things being equal...

    Yup, everything v good. We both took early retirement from our healthcare careers in growing concern and disgust at the stupid games that were being played with and in the nhs. Diane took the opportunity to relocate her career to Canada so we moved to Vancouver island to live by the sea. She continues in her career while I manage our on-the-beach holiday cottages. I am also a qualified commercial skipper and I do skippered sailing day charters with our sailboat (The Black Pig). Vehicle-wise, I’ve returned to my origins and I’m doing Japanese motorbikes from the seventies and eighties, the bikes I grew up with... in North America, if it’s not a Hardly Ablesome yer average punta doesn’t want to know (buying into the brand advertising you know even if the product is 7/10ths crap). Old, over-engineered jap bikes are not understood or appreciated for their worth apart from odd people like me! It’s the same state of affairs as with Triumphs probably in the nineties - an open invitation to those with the interest and abilities to rebuild them to better than original performance. All the bits are available in the same manner as old cars - you build a supply network. John and Vinnie have told me the supersix is in the hands of a racer now, I hope to be able to follow progress from Afar (I’m off to the Middle East next). now you lot, play nicely! I hear the old farts at trr overdosed on their laxatives and had a bit of a clear out....? regards from Nanoose Bay, open for pasty-faced brits to come for a holiday.
