Feel like sharing my day with ya'll. I was treated to a free lunch and received an Engineer of the Year award. Have to admit that all I did was endure the pain of keeping a major project on track. My backordered items from O'Neal were shipped today. Thanks O'Neil for great customer service. My new Clarke tank arrived today. Regrettably the order got messed up, I received an XR650L tank instead of an XR650R tank. I'll probably have to wait another 10 days to get the right one. No Big Deal (NBD) BTW, I made some mods to my carb and airbox. Since I never use my choke, I replaced the choke plate with a much longer plate to achieve the Power Now effect of dividing the air intake cylinder. The most noticable result was that when the bike fired up for the first time I did not have to opened the throttle even a little bit to let it warm up. Usually if I don't hold the throttle slightly open for a couple of seconds it will take a second kick to hold idle. The airbox mod was my attempt to duplicate the BatWing. http://www.precisionconceptsracing.com/pages/batwing.htm I made an insert that blocked off the interior portion of the airbox that contributes to "eddy pool" effect. What I noticed was that when I was running 70 mph in fourth gear the engine felt incredibly smooth. (15/48 gearing) These two mods cost me $1.50 worth of sheet aluminum and a little time playing with fit. Thanks for enduring my long post.
