The pursuit of speed and adventure…

Awww crap...

You know something’s bothering me when I don't have much to say about riding or racing.
Despite the sub zero cold here in the Midwest, I've got something else to lament over.

My race ride is suffering from some ailment, that I'm sure is going to rob me blind to get fixed.

Here's the last few minutes of racing video before it felt soggy then died. You'll be able to hear it lock up. I pulled the clutch in to keep the rear from locking and sticking me on my ass.

I had flashbacks from racing my NSR250, where this was a common occurrence !

Quick review in the pits told me that it locked up, most likely rear cylinder, due to inadequate oiling.

Now comes the task of tearing it down and seeing what the damage$ are...

Awww crap.....
