  • Roy's Repairs got it sorted pretty well.  55hp on the dyno, no stumbles, starts and idles easy.  Could make more with a bit of work, but not bad for a 35 year old bike that was only ever claimed to have 82 hp (almost certainly at the crank, not rear wheel).

    Stan aksed for a copy of the dyno run video to show down the dudes at Blue Cat, but I lost my phone on the way home.  :/

    Rode it home on the highway, handling and brakes are pretty good, gonna hold judgement until I tweak a few things (like taking off the steering damper and double checking the setup measurements, trail, etc).

  • Had the bike over at Grumpie's last weekend for the (mumble mumble) show. 


    Ended up with the biggest trophie of the night ... for ugliest bike!


    Loaded up for my trip out west, got about 200 miles and an oil line blew.  Now the engine is seized.  In the process of tracking down an XJ750 for en engine swap.  Fortunately they are cheap and plentiful, especially this time of year.
