This is what she used to look like but I just got the her repainted.

I was getting some really good shots from the track and couldn't stand the teal and white with gold pinstripes anymore.

Let me know what y'all think.

Sorry, I just like the carbs.

Filters! Filters! We don't need no stinkin' filters!

Catfish Racing doesn't filter air, we pollute it.

This is one lean, mean roadracing machine!!!

This bike means business!

If I can learn how to ride it, the Super Singles class is in some SERIOUS trouble!!!

 

OK it's Tuesday3/19 and I just brought the TiG down to Fun Wheels Honda. They're gonna check out some spring rates for me. I gotta get down there with my gear and the tank so we can check sag. That bike is sprung WAY too soft for me. And the guy who had it before me had me by 75 lbs. I really don't know how he rode it. I'll give an update as I know where we are with it.

 

OK Here we go. This is what it looked like about half way through getting down to business.

I got the wheels off and down to Fun Wheels to get my Tombstone slicks mounted. The forks and shock are there getting massaged also. I ordered up some Michelin full rains for my Astro Lite spare rims. As always, I'll keep ya posted. OUT!

 

Well. I took this bike to a track day at Pocono International Raceway with Pizza and friend Dave Cross. Look here for pics and details.

 

It's Tuesday 5/21, I have to change the counter balance chain so I'm in the middle of ripping that down. Here are some pics.

Balancer Chain.JPG (319708 bytes)Cam Chain Close.JPG (302472 bytes)

The first shot is of the left side of the motor with the flywheel removed.

The second shot it a close up of the balancer chain behind the cam chain.

That's where I came to a halt. I have to figure out how to get behind the cam chain to get to the balance chain. If you can help, shoot an E-Mail to Catfish "at" CatfishRacing.com.

Another thing I noticed while I was getting ready to pull the left side motor cover.

See the gunk along the seam? I hope that's just some type of gasket bond that squished out the last time the cover was being torqued down. Well see.
