no.

I worked on derbi today, but it sounds like shit, so I’m not racing. Lame! I dunno what to do. I don’t really have the time now to build a good, semi-competitive bike, and this has me pretty bummed out. I think with some tuning the polini could be a force to be reckon with, but I dunno, I think the zen pipe is a piece. So yea, I don’t know what to do. My options are the polini, a metra 80, or go back to the gila. The gila is rough, but with a new piston and light hone it should rip. The metra is also rough, with a massive exhaust port to make up for a previous seize, but the casting of the cylinder is stupid, so making an intake, and adapting an exhaust to work is a little more work than I’d like to do. So yea, either the gila with a doppler, or metra with a doppler. Fuck the zen.

So yes, I won’t be racing, but what do you care? I’ll be out there sunday, hopefully, to cheer the racers on. I want a fast bike, but its some work right now. I think I can be competitive in the polini class, but I don’t really have any puchs except the magnum which is heavy and might not be as competitive as I’d like. So yea, whatever. In all honesty, it would be sweet if someone built me a bike that was fast. That would be sweet, then I could be lazy, race and ride super fast, and not have to worry about shit. That would be awesome. Maybe its cheating, but whatever. Building is always a fun part, but riding is really what its all about.

Magnum x is ready to rip in ***-tow (bay area back dow?) so I’m stoked about that. I’m done. 4 loco is ttto o extreme for me tonight. I don’t know how you all drink this shit regularly.

what don’t you like about the Zen? do you have the 75cc pipe?

is it taking forever to get into the powerband? seems like the 50cc should rip with a race setup
