R.I.P XS Racer :(
« on: July 24, 2014, 01:17:10 PM »
This is the last ever pic of my XS racer at Brands Hatch last month, the project has sadly now been shelved due to the bike not being competitive against the 2 stroke twins & 500 singles, I had my Quest Honda Single at the meeting the same week end & despite having around 8 bhp less than the XS was a massive 5 secs a lap faster over the lap!

This makes me sad.  I intended to run my bike at the track and hoped it would do well.

That's one cool looking machine man!! Is there any other options for chain sprockets that might help you out a little bit. I would have to assume you also went through the carbs and rejeted for performance, did you add a performance exhaust or fabricate one? Or do the rules kind of prevent you from doing that stuff? Like you have to use only vintage parts type thing? Man that's a damn shame that is a fine looking machine!!!
