    IT's ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSS THE RC IS back in action!!!!!
    I put 20 miles on it tonight and ready to put some serious miles on it this weekend!

    Items taken care of:
    Leaking fork seal replaced.
    New front tire mounted.
    Busted mount brackets on a radiator rewelded/repaired.
    New spark plugs.
    New air filters.
    New LED Rear integrated brake lights/directionals installed.
    New rear wireing harness installed.
    Replaced coolant with Blue Ice stuff?
    Oil and filter changed.
    New DID X-Ring chain installed.
    Good street plastics put on instead of the track plastics.


    Thank you Brian for all you help / knowledge, use of your garage and tools!
    Thanks to Lis for getting the goods I needed and quick!!!
    Oh and most importantly- for finding the battery fuck up!

    Also A huge thanks to Peter Kates @ GMD computrack for taking up some seriously busy time for him prior to the first race weekend. He took me in and repaired my fork seal and mounted my tire on a very short notice! Your the man...




    Next to be done:
    Inspection sticker.
    Bleed the brakes.
    Order and replace the sprockets.
    Buy a GPS and mounting bracket.

    MOST IMPORTANTLY - RIDE!!!!!!

    I would be nice, but not completely required.
    Brakes work great but could use a little more bite. I am pretty sure there is little if any air in the lines, I may just need to try a different brake pad to get the bite I want.

    This was just something I wanted to do, but not really need.


    Brent, great to hear your issues are fixed! All ready for Deals!!!

    Ok guys lets ride.

    Saturday up into NH or VT.
    Sunday back roads to the track to watch some races, or another full day of riding????


    Bruce, if we go at a fast pace I will wait at gas stops for you.

    I most likely will not be stepping up to a high paced ride until I get my bearings back. Plus I want to get my sprockets changed and my front tire scrubed in.

    Mike, where are you ordering sprockets? i might want to piggyback that order if you're going to ahve them by deals.

    With all that new fresh stuff you're gonna be blowing me away, my toilet is falling apart.

    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    I'll give you a call probably late tonight after I go for a ride.
    I will either go with Spocket Center, Or Sprocket specialist on-line. I am looking for a specific rear sprocket, so it depends on who has it. I have a bad feeling the stealth spocket I want is no longer available/manufactured. They lost money because they last a hell of a lot longer... )


    Any recomendations on other sprockets? I need to get 15/41 520 sprockets. I will probably go with steel because they last longer.

    I have a 525 chain otherwise I would be going back to 530. 530 lasted me like 25,000 miles, and the 520 lasted me like 5 if that. Steel sprockets, big chain is the way to do it. i'm up for anything.

    What time are you out of work? I dropped you an e-mail, was hoping I could swing through after work and get the bike from you.

    Mike, good luck finding a steal rear in 520 for that beast. If you can't find steal, go with AFAM, there alluminimum lasts a great deal longer then some of the other crap out there.

    Good to hear the beast is back up and running. I am available Saturday and maybe Sunday. Saturday I need to be back by 4:30-5 for a little bachelor party action.

    Thanks jamie. Hey request to bring a friend to the party!

    Jay,
    I am out of work at 3:30 hopefully and have to run up to Brians house to get the RC. I will be coming right home to unload and ride it probably to Moto Market.

    what time are you out of work? I should be back in Framingham between 5:30 and 6?

    If that works I could use you help. I need to drop my truck off about 10 minutes away in Marlboro and need a lift back!

    Replaced coolant with Blue Ice stuff?
    Blue Ice stuff huh?? Where can I get some of that??

    I most likely will not be stepping up to a high paced ride until I get my bearings back.
    Where the heck are you bearings?? I thought the bike was done.

    Hey Brent, your wiring is perfect as long as I don't have to fix it!! Looks great from here. Can't wait to see the bike though!
