I refer to the 3 photo set as the day it tried to kill me! That was before I fitted the CR 125 swingarm and dropped it an additional inch from 2" to 3"+. The first swingarm was a 4130 one I built that was 3" over stock, the aluminum CR one is 7" longer. Night and day difference.

nice bike.  Do you have a blog or build thread anywhere? have you ever run it with the Super Eliminator crowd?

I am in the middle of a build of an RD350 for that series right now.

An we need more pictures please - especially of the clutch cover - that's my next challenge.

Billet heads with toroidal chambers built by me, V Force 3 reeds, currently with 38mm Lectrons, originally fitted with 34mm flat slide Mikunis. Chambers are Spec 2. The chambers were ported by me as were the transmission modifications. All gears are 3 on 3 dogs, I use a 400 mainshaft with 350 gears, 400 basket, inner hub and pressure plate along with a banshee lockup. It was last dynoed at 73HP. PVL ignition.

Nice work there!

Really sharp looking too!

10.89 @118.3
I saw 119.7 once in Wichita with a tailwind. Bike would do 10.6s with a lighter rider. Bike itself weighs 275#

This might be a good time to give a shout out to the fine folks at Economy Cycle for their 20% discount prize. I opted for the MZB/Powerdynamo ignition for my work in progress RDinja. 08-12 Ninja suspension swapped 75 RD 350. Thanks also to those that voted for my bike.

Well deserved win! 73bhp on RD350 is outstanding. Guy like me is thrilled with odd 30bhp it delivers. Do post a video.Those pictures are enthralling.Any steering stabiliser?

Yes, there's a Shindy steering damper on the right side. As a matter of fact, I knocked the crap out of my knee on it in the course of that near crash! And pulled a groin muscle with the flying split. Ouch!
