Well... I didnt get 'Big Boy' done in time for the trackday. I got it rideable, but it was not ready for the track. This was a pretty important trackday, as I had invited a buddy down from Alabama, who rides a 86 GSXR. It was also my company's trackday, and I wanted to make a decent showing. So I took the 91 1100, as I knew what to expect out of it.

Everything turned out great, bike ran all day, no off track excursions. He did finally spill the beans that he has a B12 motor in his 86 750 (cheater!!). Now I really want to get 'Big Boy' ready for the next time we meet up. He was having some clutch issues, and he is using a Euro 88-89 750 harness and some crappy igniter box, so his rev limiter is kicking in around 9500rpm. I told him about this site, so Im sure he is going to show up, and get some good info on how to get his bike running better... just what I need. He is an ex-racer from back in the day also. We have a blast on the track, as we are very equally matched. We were never more than one turn apart all day long. I got some footage, but am having some difficulties getting it uploaded to youtube. I taped one session on a lesser setting, and am trying to get it to load right now. I will post a link as soon as I get it to work.

Okay... so the first lap was pretty slow, as he doesnt have tire warmers... and it is a really short vid, but I have a bunch more that are longer, so I will try to post some longer, better quality ones tomorrow.... and the sound is horrible, so turn down the volume...

is your tach broken? cuz the speedo needle on my former 91 750 broke one day and it would vibrate in the bezel.

i have a trackday on monday and a friend has camera. hopefully, he will be able to set-up the camera on my bike, but i am not sure.

Yep... I have 3 91/92 1100 tachs, and they all bounce around after a few laps. So I tried this old 89 750 tach, and the needle broke in the second session. It didnt really matter, because without 2nd gear. I was only shifting 4 times a lap. I cant wait to the other bike done. Then I can give Old Blue some long-overdue love...
