OK... There is such a thing as "Too Many TT's"!!!
The 2 for $400 was passed on. REALLY rough skeletons and trashed motors!

Bought a new tire for the front of the '78.
The 3.75x19 Carlisle was hard as a rock and had to be at least 30 years old. It never held in the corners if I started to get Racy...
The Golden Tyre is a 130/80x19 CD4 compound. Way wider and taller than the Carlisle, so some modification to the Yamaha Radian forks was necessary...









Air filter is clean and ready to go back on.
Next race, Wednesday Night June 19!!

Lookin good Willie!
It's not going to rub at all when things start flexing though?

Now I find myself noticing the TTs on CL. Just what I need.

They do keep popping up don't they....
We are finding good running examples now for around $500.
A great starting place!!!
Not sure if it will flex enough to rub. It just has to get me through the season and then I'm re-doing the whole setup.
De-raked frame, wider CNC clamps, R6 forks, "Possibly" a Radian swingarm I have sitting in the garage. It's awfully long and I'm not sure I want that much wheelbase.
One step at a time from here on.

Looks fantastic with the new hoop. Will be interesting to see about that flex. If you are looking for forks you could do worse than the KTM WP 50mm Extremes, easy to shorten and adjust etc. I used them and am very happy with the look and feel around the garage, still waiting for my tank to be done tho before i can ride it sadly.

Well, trying out the new front tire will be postponed until July 17th.
The races tonight are rained out.

What position is the clip on your jet needle? I just put in the same needle and jet and had the clip in the middle notch but it was running pretty lean. I am going to try the bottom notch and see how it goes. Also, what elevation are you at? I imagine it is pretty close to me (about 4000 ft)

Howdy Dan!! 6DH3 in the middle (3rd) notch
Elevation here and where I race is just under 2400 ft.
Are you using a cut down P-8 needle jet?

It's just a normal P8 needle jet. What do you mean by cut down? I am going to try the bottom notch on the needle and see how she runs. I have to put the motor back in first though :) there is something about Idaho and XTs, I got both my XTs from up there.

The top shield looking thing is often cut down on the two stroke style needle jets (non bleed) when used on four strokes.

Interesting, thanks. I couldn't get the bike to run right with the 6DH3 needle and P8 jet (I even tried the 6DH3 needle with the Q5 jet and it still wasn't running well) so I put the Q5 and the 6FJ6 back in. It runs well enough in this configuration that I will probably leave it as is at least for the rest of the summer.

Try the P8/6DH3 again and trim the shield to 5mm. It will make a big difference.
