This is from the post up on Barf
It was a gooood weekend.
It was Sunday morning. Wil had finished a crappy practice day Saturday, but
was able to finish the day with a respectable 1:58 (We were fighting
electrical gremlins all day. So Sunday morning I told Wil "I'll buy you a
beer if you do a 1:56. Well, he must have had a powerful thirst. Wil went
out and kick out 6 laps of 1:56's one being a 1:56.2. I'm pretty sure that
is a track record.  Oh yeah, and won the 650 twins and F4 races... coming
from the back in both race's with his BRG built and tuned SV 650!!. Wil said
last year the best he could do was a 2:00. (I really like that part)

Wil, it's great to be working with you. Thanks for making the BRG work
shine. If any one is interested we can build the same motor Wil has. It's
really not that radical comp on it is 12.50 to 1 we could do more but both
Wil and I would like to see it last. And there are some in the group that
are already grumbling about us cheating. Please tear us down we can use the

Subject: Clutch problems


	I tried a slipper clutch for the first time this past race weekend.
During practice on Saturday I started getting a lot of slippage under
acceleration so I pulled the clutch apart and sure enough it wasn't
getting enough oil and was smoking hot. I tried to modify the push rod
with a dremel but I guess I didn't take off enough as the plates still
weren't getting enough oil. 

	So I reinstalled the stock clutch with a good set of fiber and steel
plates. All seemed well on race day but by the end of the day all of
the free play in the lever was gone and I was getting a very small
amount of slippage. I checked the adjuster that is behind the
countershaft sprocket cover and sure enough it was too tight. Now
everything is adjusted properly and the feel at the lever is good,
but..................the clutch no worky. If I start the motor and put
it into 1st gear the rear wheel is pretty much getting full power (not
just lightly spinning due to a little clutch drag or thick oil) 

	Obviously I need to pull the cover and look at the plates but is
there anything in particular I should be looking for or measuring?
