Daniel,

Love the bike. Makes me want to convert mine (XT500 street tracker) into a road racer. I actually just installed a Powerdynamo on my bike and I was wondering:

1.) Are you running any special spark plug with the Powerdynamo?

2.) Are you still using the 4th Advanced Curve setting or have you played around with any others?

My motor is pretty tame in comparison: 540cc with 10:1 Wiesco, mild street cam w/ stock springs, minor port work, stock valves, VM36 with k&n and a FLOW slant flat track style exhaust. I currently have mine setup on the 4th setting.

Thanks,
Warren

Hey Warren, sorry about the response delay.

I'm running a BP7ES spark plug right now. The ignition is set to the 4th curve. I believe that's the most advanced one.

Here's a few shots from this past weekend's race at Road America. I had to retire early from Saturday's race, running in 2nd place with a broken off rear set.
On Sunday, I managed to bring home a 3rd place (out of 14 racers on the grid), finishing behind a Honda Ascot and a BMW R65.
Thanks to Peter at MotoLanna for his support!

Beautiful bike, I rode RA and Gratten in the early 80's Your video of RA was not what I ran, Some shots in the last few pages looked more like it. The video of Gratten Well the video sure flattens out the track. I am sure when you looked at it you thought that it had more ups and downs. Was always hairy after the jump.
