    771 Racing - Feb 2015 State of the Garage

    State of the Garage - Feb 2015 ? OutOfSpec.COM

    Menu system still isn't 100%, I'm still learning to fight CSS but don't have the dropdowns working like I want, nor the sliders... Bah, deep links it is! Comments / criticism, gripes, hates, standard NESR ball busting, it's all good. It's winter, there is more snow on the way, have a target for your pent up frustration.

    ULSB and GTL at a bare minimum, my alt options depend on if I get the orange bike fitted with slicks or not.

    If the KTM doesn't become a B bike I'll stick with LWGP and LWSB to round out my weekends. If it does, Motard and maybe LW Sportsman or Supersingles? Either way, I want to see you in GTL even if it's just to get lapped, as quick as you're progressing the longer sessions under a green flag will do you good I think.

    And Orange has always been fast!

    I've been mailing you discrete envelopes weekly with fresh malemal toe pics for the last year. That's not good enough?!

    Guy I bought my machine from endorsed the freezer and water technique for reviving bent expansion chambers. My bike came with 2 spares. From my guess, he used them as a way to find boulders. Said to just be careful as once they straighten they go quick.

    Or so says he.

    A 2-stroke is servicable for ULW classes? Hmmm..

    300 should have as much power as the 450s right?

    Out of the crate, no. They're about 40hp at the rear wheel. Really REALLY choked up to make for a wide spread of usable power instead of a mad rush on top. Now, that said they can be hotrodded pretty easily to make as much if not more than the current 450s, and most of the mods are just parts from alternate KTM models.

    In my case, if it's a B bike the purpose is to circulate and not get run over to garner points so I don't mind being a little down on power. If it was going to be someone's A bike, I'd be digging up the shopping list of must do mods.

    I need to look into caliper brackets. Something tells me I'm in for a 320mm disk before I'm done.

    Reports page and content list is now generating properly. Not exactly how I wanted it to work, but close enough. A lil more tuning and I'll be able to chunk by year, etc.

    And yeah, gotta agree with the Amateur, you can work on the website any time, ice is limited.
