    I think it's the Indian not the arrow. Fast guys will go fast on anything. Slow guys won't.

    But for making classes like vs like, I think the rules aren't quite right as they stand. 525s don't belong in open, and 690s belong together regardless of year.

    I agree with the anology, and this was my point. I really don't think at least this class is even with the large displacement spread.

    Exactly! The faster folks and the slower folks don't seem to care about classes, its more the people in the middle I think.

    That was a very fun day. And by the Q session you were a lot closer to Jeff than you lead on. If you recall, the Cup grid was mostly Michelin until that round except for Jeff, you, Racer20, and a couple others. By mid day Saturday there was a rush to get Dunlop 160 softs and Race Tire Service ran out for Sunday. Dunlop shipped you and Jeff a set of rears overnight for the money race...so cool and you delivered for them too. After Pocono Dunlop took over that grid.

    But yeah, when there is meaningful purse and sponsor support at stake everybody gets less friendly.

    You are right... I couldn't help myself. But it was a special day to be a pitbox dad. I am hoping to chase for the M1k coming up. Maybe even ride a transit or two.

    Actually, no. The first aid kit is in section 1.4, which is for the cars and trucks. It's not on the list of safety equipment for bikes, which is section 2.

    Last year, when the regs for the first aid kit was called "NCR4", this was also the case: NCR4 was not on the required list for any of the moto categories.

    If you're preparing a bike, stick to the sections that say Motorcycle in the header, which is 2,3, and 5, and you'll be all set. :deal

    And obviously, because you don't have to doesn't mean you can't. That's just common sense. :)

    Cheers,
    Anders

    Thanks, I thought that was a car only section but just wanted to be safe.
    I think I'll owe Anders a few beers once we get there for all this question answering. :freaky

    I posted the same question in the Thumpers section, but thought to also ask the vintage racers here.

    I just got a 1980 PE400 from a friend to begin a <NOBR>complete</NOBR> restoration. I am totally new to vintage <NOBR>building</NOBR> so can someone please guide me to a good online oem parts source?

    Also, how would I know if mine is a PE400 or PE400T? The tag on the fork before the VIN # indicates PE400, but I am hoping someone can school me on the differences between the two models so I can be certain to order the correct parts.

    Any PE400 racers here that can help out a noob?

    Thanks in advance
