No track photos yet, Dane Anar is still loading them. I did snap a few pics of the bike in the pits.

Congrates on a successful weekend. Do you have a steering damper on it? If not, they do wonders to stop the bike from weaving.

WMRRA Round 5 is in the books! Had a great weekend with a few hiccups. Took 2nd overall (3rd in heat 1, 1st in heat 2) in V250 and had a great battle with Daric during the 2nd heat.

The DS7 is running good and handling well now. I installed some Hagon shocks, freed up the sticky swingarm, and went to 20W oil in the forks. Unfortunately my sprockets did not come in for this round, so my gearing was still too short.

A huge thanks to Dane of Who is Dane Photography for the pics! He was generous enough to provide these pics for free. If you are in the PNW, consider him for all your photography needs.  :thumbsup:

For those that have not raced but want to, come out for Round 6!

Dude, how can it get any better? Build your own bike from the ground up, ride the wheels off it, motor holds together fine, come around the last turn and you see the track marshal grab for the checkered flag. You better be proud of yourself!!  :hfive:

I am pretty excited with how this project turned out, especially since this was my first Yamaha twin crank rebuild.


Also for reference, this is how I got the bike: http://www.2strokeworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=27158.msg200125#msg200125
