Ok this is the big one. Here is a quote from the promoter of this great event.

"Lock in the date everyone. This will be a BIG ONE!!!

This time we'll be racing in an Elimination Shootout.

Details are still being finalised, but we'll more than likely run a DYO eliminator for those who want to participate.

This won't hold up the normal shootout and will be run along side those who wish to just keep honing their skills.

At present, anyone running in the Sportsbike Shootout eliminator will get entry to the Willowbank Street Meet Bike Eliminator to be run later that night.

We're currently discussing another training school for advanced and beginners to preceed the event as well.

So get the word out anyway you can. Let's go for the big 100 entries!!

I'll post up more info in the next few days.

This will be a beauty."

Hopefully we will get over 100 bikes to this event. And that puts us closer to holding an all bike meet one day.

I may be tempted to bring out the 12r... I should probably pull a plug off and see whats going on inside and sort that rich running issue...

Sorry - Pull off the coil off the plug then plug out mate. Didn't want to confuse you like at the BBQ [:p]

I have band practise on in the morning but I should be able to get there in the arvo .. it doesnt start until after 12 anyways does it ? I too wont be taking part .. found out today I need new clutch plates .. the budget at the moment really doesnt allow for that.. When I get the 1100 motor in it and I learn the ins and outs of dragging I would love to have a go 8)

Thanks Joe .. I wont say no .. never changed em before but it beats the $400.00 that Suzuki wants for them 8)

crazymofo
04-04-2007, 06:40 PM
to change the clutch is peice of piss... about an hour tops.

cheers.joe.

and shane... you wont need a headstart...

remember the sv only has some 80 odd hp.

think the gixxer 750 of that time had 100+ you'll be fine [:P]

think the level of security is like the following..


person:is your bike that yellow one over there?

me:er.. yeah..

person:ok cool, its a bike.. thats your helmet?

me:yep

person:good.sign here, heres your race number

as long as its not dropping fluids, and is in a half orderly apperence it'll pass too easy

cheers.joe.

Hey War hound,
Clutches are really a piece of piss like joe said.
We pull the clutch in the drag bike out after each meet & put it back with any needed changes the night before the next one.
Best part is that my mrs does it.[:0]
Yep that's right Michelle does all the clutch work on the Kwaka so if she can do it i'm sue it won't be a hassle for you.
Just make sure you do get a new gasket & BOTH surfaces are spotlessly clean before you put the cover back on.

I am willing to give it a go .. I come from a no mechanical knowledge background .. but I have learned to do as I have gone along ... do my own servicing and brakes now .. put a dynojet kit in myself and refurbished the carbs while I had em apart... so what the hell I have a pdf manual somewhere .. I am the type thats always weary of doing something I have never done before .. but so long as it doesnt involve wood and a saw I am usually not too bad .. LOL .. Electrical stuff on the other hand is my area .. 8) .. Not with bikes as such but I used to build PCs and repair them and tvs and photocopiers .. so I guess I just apply the same logic 8)

Im a lazy tight-arse ;)

I put a block of wood or a brick under both wheels,
then lean it right over on the side stand.
Dont even lose a drop of oil. :D

Not recomended, but works.

War_Hound
05-04-2007, 07:14 PM
Considering I dropped 80 bucks worth of oil in it in dubbo probably be a good idea to do it your way 8)

Ill be there on the ulta custom super powered offical dragbike.com.au GSXR streetbike :D just stand well clear when i launch, i wont be held responsible for any injurys caused by the top fuel style launches ;) and dont sit in the mid track grandstand area as the sonic boom created by this fine piece of unique machinery may damage your ear drums or even cause brain damage!!

Yep, clutches are a piece of piss to do, just do what Tony suggests, just remember to make sure the bolts holding pressure plate on are nice and tight, you don't want them coming loose and destroying the cover.... like the tosser that owned mine previously..

Easy job mate.
Cheers

08-04-2007, 02:30 PM
Yeah well I try my best to avoid being a tosser at every opportunity 8) Thanks for the advise guys 8)

Was a good day, good turn out, lots of PB's, hot again which is better than it being rained out.

Looks like you have a bunch of string coming out the back of your bike on that top shot mate. I'll add that to the bragging board if this is still active tomorrow to remind me.

megareg
16-04-2007, 09:39 PM
I was going to say it was the string that has a tampon hanging off the end .... but I'd better not, Joe's a nice bloke... nutbag though...

Nice reaction time Joe, can't get better than that, Oh, and you should put your track time on the bragging board too, just to prove that us drag racers CAN go around corners.

Cheers.
