  • TexasT: [link] some suspension tech aboit 1:04 then some tire tech and wheelie bar kowledge after that.
    June 07 2019, 04:24:51 PM
  • Forzfed: I use to always run the Yamalube but I recently changed to Redline.  It smells like flowers!:D  I want to pull the motor and refreshen it on the bike.
    June 07 2019, 04:43:55 PM
  • Tcorgn6: Who remembers the old Kawasaki 2 stroke triples !!!! I took my buddies 750 triple for a ride and it was a holy crap experience!!!!!!
    June 09 2019, 01:51:40 PM
  • nocooler: My dad drag raced a h2 in the 80s
    June 09 2019, 03:53:18 PM
  • nocooler: He had owned a couple 500s before the 750.
    June 09 2019, 03:54:32 PM
  • earlbrown: Those triples were called the ''flexable flyers'' at the race track.  Damn frames were made out of conduit.
    June 09 2019, 06:17:18 PM
  • earlbrown: You could walk up to one of those and step on the rear wheel, crab the handlebars and twist the bike back and forth with out 10 pounds of force.
    June 09 2019, 06:17:52 PM
  • wmsonta: I rode a 500 in prop 1970. Kinda hard to keep the frt end down in the bottom gears. A young raced a 750 on nitro at a local track. I checked and do have a picture of it from prob 1972.
    June 09 2019, 09:44:35 PM
  • reality: There's 1 of these around here somewhere.  [link]
    June 09 2019, 09:45:30 PM
  • wmsonta: prob 1970.......... .ayoung man
    June 09 2019, 09:46:04 PM
  • Forzfed: I was parked next to a nice H1 last night on cruise night.  I'm going out on a limb and say my RZ will out handle and brake it a little bit! :)
    June 10 2019, 10:20:37 AM
  • earlbrown: the RZ chassis is a lot more modern than the H2.  It also doesn't have to put up with that brutal powerband from the Kawasmokie
    June 10 2019, 05:05:56 PM
  • Forzfed: Very true, Earl.  They made them till '90 here and '96 overseas but didn't improve the frames on the RZ's. :(
    June 10 2019, 07:43:31 PM
  • Tcorgn6: Don’t forget about the old RD 350 & 400’s too. Those hauled ass. Took my old 78’ KZ 1000 from a dig.
    June 11 2019, 02:57:22 AM
  • daveismissing: How are the fronts seats bolted down? floating nut in a channel thats part of the floor pan (guessing?)
    June 11 2019, 11:04:25 AM
  • nocooler: Are you talking Gbody Dave? IIRC they have studs in the floor and use nuts to hold them down.
    June 12 2019, 08:40:10 AM
  • TexasT: i dont remember them being flating. just studs up from the floor the seat goes over and a nut. if the seat frame is bent it makes it a little more challenging.
    June 12 2019, 09:42:09 AM
  • TexasT: floating
    June 12 2019, 09:42:32 AM
  • daveismissing: Thanks guys, I was trying to preplan my evening's work - yes it is a stud up from the floor, I may have a marketable no weld repair for those rail breaksat
    June 12 2019, 11:29:35 AM
    June 16 2019, 01:53:50 PM
  • daveismissing: Seems like many FAST systems are being sold off and replaced with the Holley.
    June 21 2019, 09:22:44 PM
  • earlbrown: Good thing I'm cheap.   I avoid all those upgrades and just suck it up with my stock 'shit'.
    June 22 2019, 04:24:31 AM
  • TexasT: holley has a "few" more ways to "make things happen" and people love to spend money.and have the newest greatest parts
    June 22 2019, 07:37:50 AM
  • Steve Wood: Holley is more user friendly, has more abilities, and is not being marketed thru a few tuners primarily.  FAST has not developed a broad base of users and does not appear to offer as much support
    June 22 2019, 10:18:50 AM
  • good2win22: The advantage to Holley hardware is the amount of inputs and outputs available, I/O’s. The more sensors for data logging seems to be the new wave. Folks measuring shock travel, drive shaft speed, wheel speed, coolant pressure, boost at compressor, boost at manifold, Exhaust drive pressure... If you can think of a way of making a sensor work then folks want to log it. The software is user friendly as well. Saw a guy the other day posted a pic up of an XFI with the caption,” I know you Buick guys use this the most, will it work on a sbc?”
    June 22 2019, 02:56:14 PM
  • Steve Wood: It will as long as he does not buy it from the wrong seller
    June 23 2019, 09:11:55 AM
  • nocooler: FAST makes more money selling $1000 plastic intake manifolds.
    June 23 2019, 09:31:35 AM
  • Steve Wood: I suspect you are absolutely correct
    June 23 2019, 01:03:41 PM
  • TexasT: that fast has a nifty booklet of instructions but if you arent "in the know" it can be confusing, or at least it is to me
    June 24 2019, 08:43:41 AM
  • nocooler: Booklet? I thought it came with a sticky note with a vendor tech support number that charges by the minute.
