Calling it a season
Well with the way the season is going I am done. From stupid things at Beaver, then tire issue at Nelson, now I have no idea what at Grattan I am calling my sesaon finished.
Bike ran great was getting used to the track clockwise, and the new rear shock changes when right after lunch I tried to spin my rear tire and it would barley spin. I noticed the bolt that hooks the lever to my rear master cylinder missing. Nut was loctited but since i never use the rear not something I check.
So I replaced it. First session after lunch at various times around the track the bike would feel like it was dragging something then lurch forward. Coming the front straight it felt like I was riding a bucking bronco over the bumps as the bike would bounce get a power surge, then slow down again. All the way down the straight it would rev then it would slow down or just hold revs.
Then every time into turn one as I came off the brakes the bike would feel like it was still on the brakes as I rolled gas in, then boom revs would start to go. It did this everywhere in every corner.
So I came back and the rear rim still spun freely and the rear brake would release fine after being pressed and wheel would spin freely. It began to rain so I put the rims with rains on (I knew one of my front rotors were warped a bit) and they had clean rotors and even at a slower pace i could feel the issue still plauging me. It almost caused me a crash as the bike surged and took me offline in one corner over a nice bump or hole in the track.
So after the rotors and unplugging the Power commander I gave up.
So I packed up and came home. Now I am just fed up and ready to call it a season. Maybe get a new bike over the winter and try again next year.
