Boom!

Crash in P1. Pulled the threads outta the brake calipers swapping tires, great. Qualified in 20th in a field of 22. Dropped 3 seconds in the race. Tony tried a bold pass for 13th in the chicane on the last lap and ran off losing 2 spots to finish in 16th.

The Suzuki guy lurking around here finished 12th after a crash and restart from the back.

Not a bad showing for the CRA!

Looking at the time slips revealed my modified stock airbox motor was making 127mph at the trap, a tie for second fastest. Take that AP motor runners! Same traps as Madama and Roth and 2 down on Wang with 129. A Yamaha lock on that, now if the Suzuki's would move over and let us by.

I had to follow Tony for more time than I wanted to, can confirm the motor pulls strong!

Last dance of 2018 post. We made it thru another season. Saturday's sprint races, a beautiful but chilli day. Pirelli rep delivers tires and can race like Rossi but can't go 50 feet on a scooter w/o wiping out, lol.

The 2019 season starts today. I know Mr and Mrs Suzuki are already planning our demise so thought I'd get a move on. I have a few projects to bloggerate about so here goes.

First I made some room to work in the shop,
Attached Image: IMG_20181006_190901200_resized.jpg
Then we blew it apart and parked it in a corner to patch and paint the glass. That tail section is bugging me too. I just may cut that off, dowel it and make a removable gp tail section for it. We'll see.

Body work stripped of stickers and graphics,

Next up getting after some of Anthony's pittrace modifications. Not too worried about a Concours finish since it's a race bike not a show bike. Sharkskinz is now doing bodywork and selling it a la carte too.

Forks ready to go away for a refresh, shock was done mid-season so it's good yet,

Then there's the matter of that spare motor, hmmm...

Sending it off for paint to Shane?

Sticking with the stock front end? I keep toying with the idea of a GSXR front end just so I can find a damn lightweight wheel.

I think I'll just do some kind of paint on it myself. Something more basic and simple to patch up midseason if neccesary.

Stock forks again, they've been pretty good to me. Although I wouldn't mind some slick lightweight wheels either and that ass clown in the previous post keeps trying to pawn off those R6 forks...hmmm...

This is gonna be the first season I've had any kind of real budget imposed on my program. Seems I got started deficit spending last year chasing around the country lol. I cant complain too loudly but I don't have to like it either.

You tease the motor updates, but update about paint. THIS IS NOT THE BLUE LINE I REMEMBER. :popcorn:

OK wise guy. Here ya go.

Pulled the throttle bodies off the motor in the bike. Pulled the head off the spare motor. Goin to the shop for porting, Web cams and bored throttle bodies. Should make an easy mid 80hp SB motor when she finally gets to breath proper.

Looks like the spare motor is in pretty good shape. The bores are perfect. Looks to be a low mileage unit as advertised from a wrecked bike.

Everything looked good inside here too. Untouched head after removal.

When the crap gets back it's time to get em degreed in and onto a dyno for a tune.

Fare thee well Suzuki 👎

Just my curiousity - what is the going rate for a decent condition FZ07 motor on ebay?
