Trainspotting: Transmission Differences 1g/03/04+

Trainspotting: Transmission Differences 1g/03/04+

The only significant difference between 99-02 1g, 2003 2g, and 2004+ 2g is the countershaft. EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE TRANSMISSION IS THE SAME! (at least based on part numbers on partzilla). Gear shifting parts are slightly different, but  that's easy to eyeball  https://www.mad8v.com/blogs/blahg/shift-star-detent-arm-spring-compatibility 1g 99-02 and 2003 use SHAFT, COUNTER (NT:13) 24120-19F00 2004+ uses SHAFT, COUNTER (NT:13) 24120-27G00  the unfortunate thing about this... is that 2003 engine cases are different from 2004+ JUST BECAUSE OF THIS CRANKCASE SET | MODEL K3 11301-20860 CRANKCASE SET | MODEL K4/K5/K6/K7 11301-20883   I still need to work on figuring out how to tell the countershafts and cases...

Shift Star/Detent Arm/Spring Compatibility/Trainspotting

Shift Star/Detent Arm/Spring  Compatibility/Trainspotting

My friend Ryan sent me a bit of a doozy (which he then helped me figure out). "What shift star and detent/spring are the best?"  Well it turns out that the ones you want are 05+ for all 1g and 2g bikes. They are as aggressive as the factorypro kit and cost much less.  The 05+ star has bigger lobes, the spring is stronger, and the detent arm has bearings rather than a bushing   left is 05+, right is 99-04 05+ note the bearings on the detent, an extra coil on the spring (blue not yellow), and more aggressive lobes on...

Things I Need to Work On

Things I Need to Work On

in no particular order, I wanted to make a list of things i need to work on with technique Less weight on the bars (more locked in with the foot/knee) torso closer to the tank (get lower)  Not so much knee out (knee is down way before it needs to be and is the limiting factor in lean angle rn) brake later and trail more brake less/throttle more  get over the "head level with the horizon" thing. it's slowing me down and making my neck hurt. basically learn to balance with my head tilted  handle the feeling of speed better (cart...

Line Planning Backwards = Billiards

Line Planning Backwards = Billiards

When shooting a combination shot in pool, many players work backwards from the pocket (hole). if I want the 3 to go into that corner, i need it heading in the direction of the hole. To get it going in the direction of the hole I need to hit it with the 5 in a certain spot. To get the 5 to that spot I need the white cue ball hit in a certain direction, etc.  How does this translate to planning a line through a track? You can think of it the same way! Work backwards from where you...
