For anyone who has always said, "I wanna come check this shit out", SRR is the closest track to us Chicagoians - Sat the 23rd - Night Race under the Lights

$2500 for basically a complete engine overhaul, it would have only coast about 2K if I did it all at once instead of doing the top end a month before the bottom end lol. The engine now is pretty much new and has the following done to it.....


cylinderworks big bore kit +3mm 498 kit
Vertex piston and rings
new cam chain
new Hot Rods crank and rod and Hot Rod bearings
Big bore gasket kit
New Ti valves
head work done by KWS
STM slipper clutch
Hot cams Canshaft
Graves carb and crankcase catch cans

I think the engine is worth more than my Aprilia SXV 550. LOL












Also had my graves can repacked the right way. LOL

Repacked the wrong way and this is what it looked like after 20 min before last race at Road America 2 weeks ago.







Repacked the right way

I am checking with Boogs to see if we can get on track during the day (before 4:30pm) so we can log more laps - I have never been to this tiny ass track and want some laps under my belt before I grid up (building the excuses.................NOW)

Yeah that would be nice but I doubt it will happen. If we can get on the track at noon for some early praictice I would be all for it as I have never been there either.


If not Eddie just make sure you get every lap of practice you can when you are there to get your shifting/branking points down and also the lines.

Yeah, been watching Vids of the track all day - Not that they help much but it is good to see what we will be running

you better been working out as this track at 38-40 sec lap times will wipe you out aftaer 10 laps, very physical track when trying to get to 37-38 sec lap times. its more like sprinting compared to a casual jog when racing at road america, after riding at srr at race pace road america will seem easy as you time to rest in between corners. its a fun track, awesome traction, one of the best ive ever riden, im not sure about night as scott said at night it got slick as the track started sweating or building up condensation. but i talked to harlow today, hes going to try to make it with his dads bike.

I raced mini's there a few years ago and did a couple of night races.
Fun track for sure as a rider or a spectator.

Just heard from Boogs, no early practice - Track is rented to someone else .......

It was HOT out there today - Thus track is kinda wacky too - Bumpy and some HIGH ass apex curbs and under the lights was pretty damn cool

Steve and Roman were kicking ass and anytime we get a Tnat sighting, it's a good time

Fastest guy running .37.9 and slow ass me at a .41 - Steve got into the .38.5 (better fuck-o?) and Roman hung it out in the .40s

Great night ladies

Sweet Pics Roman - Where did you get those?
