    That is one thing that is heavily discouraged. There are grudge events that do get recorded, but most are trying to stay low key. After Fast and the Furious came out, the family atmosphere at the tracks disappeared and was replaced with a bunch of violent idiots ruining the fun. So, a bunch of us started doing our own thing and doing small, invite only events. It lets us control the crowd and keep it family friendly. We avoid the bad or careless drivers who keep things from running smoothly.

    I wish. Last event I blew the rear end the first pass, turned my trans inside out the second pass, and lost my boost controller on the third pass, pegging the 100psi boost sensor on the datalogger and lifting both heads. Fun, fun, fun.

    Cool! I actually have an extra pulley, so just the machine work (or the details on how) would be needed. Thanks!

    Nope, but it’s ready to go again. New head gasket and studs fixed the engine. Transmissions and rear ends, well, I keep spares laying around. I actually just got home from taking it to town and getting lunch.

    I use a 32 tooth pulley that I bought from someone who didn't like it. I forgot who it was but it served the purpose and it was already machined. The one you get from Baker has a lip on the outer side, which is what you have to have machined off. I wanted about 300 more RPM to cruse in 3rd & 4th around town and not have the 650 woods cam lobe ride while riding at 35 or 40 MPH. I use the same belt but it is maxed out or close to it. Pulls a little harder because of the higher RPM's which puts it in the power band quicker and away you go.

    I finally got it and I love it! Works great with the 585 cam, a lot quicker acceleration :whoop: and I am at 3,000 rpm at 75 mph now, perfect! Big thanks to ksmike for getting me set up! :old2: IMG_20171114_044117659.jpg IMG_20171115_132818975.jpg

    What was the RPM's before the change at 75mph? and what is the difference at 2000 RPM's?
    I like the lightening holes in it for weight reduction:old2:

    Well, since we talked about this already, I'll refresh your memory, before at 3000 RPM I was at 80 mph, at 2,000 I don't know cause my tach light is out at 2,000 rpm, remember also that big dog tachs are only approximate, since you don't really know where you're at between the lights, thanks for asking though, good question bro!

    WTH, you need to get that fixed, but to stay on subject, wouldn't down shifting into 5th at 75mph put you at 3500 RPM's and more into the power band of the 117?

    Obviously it's not for everyone, for the slower riders it's going to be a bit much! :oldeek: :oldhardlaugh:

    Riding myself I can spin the rear tire in 1st and 2nd, can you spin it in 3rd now?
    I use 6th gear all the time around 55-60 riding 2 up, and if you learn to listen to what the motor is telling you, you'll know when to down shift before you lug it.
    Its like mowing grass, when the blades are spinning at the right RPM's they sing to ya, music to my ears it is:whoop::old2:
