        Its from freedom performance. It fits their outlaw megaphone. Carpenter did not make one when I got all three of my pipes

      Well, thanks, I thought I'd offer- it seems only fair. If I had waited for the one I ordered to arrive I'd have been without a bike for far too long. You saved me, for sure.

      I'm headed up to Galax now for a beer and burger, then a nice camp site next to the river. I hope to meet up with you sometime in your great state or mine.

      Many thanks- Blake

      Warp- Finally got the cam tool I ordered in from BikeBandit and wanted to offer to trade it for your used version that you've been kind enough to lend out. I'm sure I added some wear struggling to get my timing right. I could swap out with you the next time I'm up your way. Besides, I'd like to meet you in person and maybe work some barbecue into the equation. Thanks- Blake

        Thanks for the offer. I just used it this last weekend
        Ya you can see it looks used but its not worn so I would not worry about it. To be honest the only engine I could use it on is sitting on a pallet in my basement.

        That one you used has been shipped to germany and back so one of our serviceman I think army, could do his update kit. She is getting some miles on her:)

      Scott, I think I need to relocate my stock air filter. I am putting a big tire on the rear and need to move the battery a little. What are some cheap options? Thanks

        Probably the ram filter set up would be the best since it comes with the IAT relocation harness. this type of filter is great to have just for the room it creates on top of the engine for maintenance purpose.
        what type and size of tire did you put on? I assume dark side?

      Hi again warp, Checked Cam chain tensioner drop for first time. 22mm drop and a 3mm shorter than new spring. Going to spacer it now and order parts. Guessing tensioner can be reset when off, so new spring (73mm). New chain, both blades. Is there anything else I'll need? Hoping to do job from front without removing engine. Is that possible?

        The Drop was 22mm; shocking. bikes only done 8000 mile. previous owner never checked this (why would he?). Ordering parts tomorrow: chain blades and spring. Can it be done thru the front?

        Yes you can stick the blades in thru the front clutch cover. You just have to smile and hold your face straight but it can be done. I've done it myself.:D

      Help. Tool T-3880068 is it necessary or will a depth gauge on a set of calipers work? 16mm for plunger?
      1. warp9.9
        warp9.9
        If your talking about their go no gauge you do not need it calipers will ill do fine16 mm or more drop requires the spacer which can be made out of a 10 mm bolt shank .355"long. It increases the spring tension on the unit.

      Hey Warp, have you ever thought about going and running your bike at TX2K? Just wondering. I thought about going next year, but I don't have as much bike as you do lol!

        I have thought about land speed racing at the texas mile or the Ohio mile but have not followed thru. I would love to be in the 200 mph club. But I must admit the last couple crashes I have had had tamed me down a wee bit. It didn't take much just 6 fractures of three vertebra and a broken wrist, got my attention.

        What's the fastest you have gone to date? I've been talking to my buddy who took his zx10r down to tx2k17. He said he usually hits around 190mph. Do you think that's too crazy to do on a rocket?
