Joe had a great turn out after last years Castle Rock!!
It was like a mini national. Great racing that night.

I see Joe has an "Added Pro Purse" that night.
Good way to pick up some gas money!
Drop me a PM, I may have room at the house if you need a place to stay.

Nothing is safe there!!

Raining today, so I don't want to chance sucking anything into the motor. Maybe Manyana...

What size Mikuni you running? I just put a new VM34 roundslide on my dual sport...has a small stutter off idle. Wondering what you got jetting wise.

I went with a 36mm. Haven't started the bike yet and I have no idea, at this point, what jetting came with it. A buddy has the same carb (36) that was suppose to be jetted for a TT500. It had;

2.5 cutaway
P8 needle jet
6DH3 needle 3rd clip
240 main jet
35 pilot jet

That's going to be my starting point.

Great looking (and sounding) bike!! Let us know what you end up doing with the jetting, I am working on getting my XT500 tuned up with a new VM36. Ive got it pretty close but still not quite there.

Love this bike!

I had a VM38 on my bike when it arrived, it worked well on the short ride i had before i pulled it apart, but who knows how well it was tuned.

Thanks Jon!!

The 38's are great for making big horsepower, but the 36's are a better "All Around" performance choice.

To be honest I reckon the seller just happened to have it lying around so fitted it. Im using a TM36 so its a moot point. :)

Today, I just had a few small things to take care of before the open practice this Saturday.
The bike is lookin pretty racy!!



Needed to fab up a gasket for the gas cap. It had leaked a lot for the PO. To the point that it left stains in the clearcoat on the tank. A trip to O'Reilly's and some cork gasket material solved that problem.



The bike needed number plates. I bought some Maier plastic plates. Before cutting into them, I made some cardboard templates so I could make some cheap mistakes if I had to.




Masking tape still in place from cutting the plates.
Next photos should be from Airway Heights Washington after this weekends open practice!
