easy way around that is to tell them you went dry sump so you could lower then engine ~1.25" for a lower overall Cg. No study involved and it's hard to argue. That's how we did it. We ran F4is

I drove some basketball player's T-Rex (don't remember who it was, but supposedly he's some star ). It was at 404 Motorsports and I was there with a friend who happens to hang out with a couple of the guys who work there. HOLLY ******* **** that thing is fun.

If you go with a GSXR motor, avoid 00 and 01 600 and 750. Weak trannies. You can add a power commander to nearly most modern FI sport bikes, and get pretty decent control over tune.

The T-Rex appeals to me, though I don't like the idea of buying a pre-built car of that nature. I want to create something. I still cast occasional glances at the Grinnall Scorpion, though I have one major problem with it. The BMW Paralever suspension does not lend itself to wide tires. Specifically, the side-to-side orientation of the driveshaft and R&P box is fixed relative to the engine, since it is the rear suspension member. Even on the new K1200S is this the case.

However I've wondered... What would happen if a person transplanted an FZ1 engine into one of the new Grinnall S3-K40 chassis? You'd have to build a custom swingarm and sprocket extension, but having done that one could conceivably fit a 335/30-18 tire back there.

Then, we just have to find a way to make it legal in SoloII A-modified. The only killer rule is on page 59 of the GCR, section 12.1:
12.1 AUTOMOBILE (CAR)
A self-propelled land vehicle, running on at least four wheels, not in a line, which must be in contact with the ground when at rest.
A crafty person might try to attach a fourth wheel to the vehicle, at the end of a retractable lever, which is lowered to the ground when at rest. A craftier person might point out to the tech inspector that none of the other cars at the event are in compliance with 12.1 either, since if their wheels are in contact with the ground then they must be in violation of 3.3.3 B-4, Safety:
4. Tires must be in good condition, with no cord or belts showing or cracks in the tread or sidewall.
I mean, the ultimate would obviously be a Megabusa Westie, but this being California and all you can't register a car with a motorcycle engine.

600? Hmmph. 750? Heh. A Jedi craves not these things. Strong with the force are the liter-bikes. Luminous beings are they, not this crude matter. For my ally is the boost, and a powerful ally it is. The turbocharger creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. You must feel the boost around you. Here, between you, me, the piston, the crankshaft, everywhere, yes. Even between the tire, and the road.

But beware the ZX-14. Anger, Fear, naturally-aspirated Torque, the Dark Side are they. Once you start down the 1400cc path, forever will it dominate your destiny. Loki, do not underestimate the power of the boost. Or suffer your father's fate you will.

This is for my open wheeled racer, lets see those links.
Make me an offer for my VF1000F. it's a complete running bike that I use daily but I am ready to upgrade. It is low mileage as well (less than 10k miles, probably around 6k or so to be honest.)

LOL, I need a liter bike, my fat *** is too heavy for a 650. Although if it were a newer SV650, I would be tempted in someways. I want a fuel injected bike.

It is an '06 model. Fuel injected. Starts and idles properly the first time every time.

just recalled, a friend of mine has an older Honda liter bike that he bought needing work (it was dropped fairly hard) but it starts and runs fine. The frame is ok, but it's got lots of busted panels and ****. anyway, he's moving to Texas and is selling most of his project stuff... I'll get some info from him.

Hey if you want to trade for an 84 VF1000F, let me know. LOL. My 1000F is not worth that kind of coin regardless of how well it runs.

LOL, you are about $1000-1500 shy of where I would need to be. I have more money in engine mods and stainless steel brake/clutch lines. FWIW, on a small race car MC brakes can be made to work pretty well. Still you might want to look on Ebay for a VF1000R motor as well. You can usually find the motor and tranny pretty cheap.

Ah yes. It took a few minutes to register that the VF1000 family hasn't been made in a while. All I saw was the 1000.

Wait a sec. Your bike is an '84 has only 6k miles on it?

Get out there and RIDE, ****! Only then, a Jedi will you be.

Ya, I stole the sucker from a local lot with 4k on the bike for a 2003 Ninja 250 with 14k miles that I purchased the year before for 1850 with helmet. It runs pretty damn hard when I get on it.
